Who should the Marlins go after? (Centerfielder)

Don't get me wrong, Fredo and Reggie have been doing a great job manning CF for us this year. They have been getting on base and producing runs, but the front office needs to go out and get a real CF. Someone young, talented and an on base machine. I am not sure if we are waiting for our savior from our organization (no idea who) or waiting for the right deal to come by. We have been waiting for a real CF for about 2 years and I think it's about time for us to get our wish. (But, I don't to give up our good talent- can't have our cake and eat it too :rolleyes: ). This team could be so much better with that hole filled up. Fredo can go back to being a utility infielder... Uggla and Hanley can get a break every now and then. With all our injured souls coming back we could make a run for it... Getting that hole filled up could send a message to the team that the FO believes that they can compete this year.

 

Enough with my chattering...

 

So, who do you think we should go after (now or off season)? Should we go after a minor leaguer or major leaguer?

We're going to see what De Aza has, and I really regret that.

 

I think, if the Marlins are going to say "we're in it," we can't wait for health from anything but a known quantity.

 

It's unfortunate, but I think our centerfield aquisition is going to be getting De Aza healthy.

 

But, if I had my preferences, I'd get a moderate production, moderate cost guy...no balls to the walling for a guy like Baldelli.

I'd explore trading Mitre while his value right now is high for possibly maybe a Rocco Baldelli...

 

yousir are loco! hes due now any day for a no-hitter, i feel it comming, and i want it to be @ the marlins. Anyway, it would be ludacris to trade mitre right now, he is the best, yes THE BEST starting pitcher we have right now. He would be more value to us than trading him for some1 mediocre.

 

plus, his trade value is not particularly high right now.

You guys are nuts if you think we should deal a talented young pitcher just coming into his own to temporarily fill a position that is arguably not even a hole. Good starting pitchers are worth their weight in gold. I think it would be foolish to deal any one of our talented young pitchers for anyone less than a future hall of famer right now. I should say a future hall of famer who is young and going to be with the team for awhile. Maybe a Miguel Cabrera type, but also a fast center fielder. It ain't gonna happen!
