How about just plain FA pickups? They've been amazing at those. Picking up guys from waivers and having them play very well.

 

Miguel Olivo

Dan Uggla (Rule V)

Alfredo Amezaga

Cody Ross (trade or waiver? - either way)

Kevin Gregg

Jorge Cantu

Joe Nelson

... that's just off the top of my head...

 

Can't say enough about the scouting in this organization. Got to be at or near the best in the league.

 

 

The fact that they can pick up a FA like Kevin Gregg, have him be pretty decent, pick up a lot of saves, and then turn his value into a guy like Jose Ceda, is just amazing.

Based on the above I still maintain that Beinfest is an average GM. On top of the free agents and trades I'm somewhat displeased with his ability to draft talent.

He is really good at drafting. It's a strength.

 

2008 - Skip, Hand, Olmos, Brewer, Galloway < - Early reports are encouraging, and Galloway is a steal

2007 - Dominguez, Stanton, Petersen < - Top heavy, but awesome with Stanton in round 2

2006 - Coghlan, Cousins, Raynor, Sinkbiel, G. Taylor, Correa < - No stars, but likely contributers. This is solid

2005 - Volstad, Morrison, West, Thompson, Tucker, G. Sanchez, Marceaux, Winters, Leroux < - Potentially 7+ guys on 25 man roster 2010. Epic

2004 - Mobley, Tank, Vargas, Burns, Carroll < - Bad. Relievers and fringe outfielders

2003 - Kensing, Allison < - All sorts of bad

2002 - Hermida, Johnson, Olsen, Andino < - 3 starters and a bench guy. Great draft.

 

So if we're counting at home

 

Great drafts - 2002, 2005, 2007

Solid Drafts - 2006

Bad Drafts - 2003, 2004

 

We'll see what Skip and gang do next year, but this is a rock solid drafting record and WELL above average of other teams.

I think it might be important to credit MLBtraderumors.com as this is their list that they posted yesterday. I will give you credit for the most recent trades and the FA signings though. If everyone wants a professional style site, we should credit those who do the original work. Just my two cents.

Too early to call for 2007-2008.

 

I also wouldn't consider 2002 a great draft yet. Andino amounted to nothing. Olsen was a huge disappointment for me (made even worse by the fact that we flipped him for nothing).

 

I'm also a huge Hermida supporter myself but the considerable regression after the promising 2007 season leaves the jury still out. Let's hope he bounces back this season.

 

Furthermore, 2003/2004 are more than 'bad' drafts. They were disasters.

 

Right now I'll just say that he was brilliant in 2005.

 

Out of trading/drafting/signing, I would lean toward saying that Beinfest's strongest ability is in signing players and making claims off of waivers.

He drafted the top power prospect in the minors in the second round. 2007 is going to be good. Olsen developed into a MLB arm, that's all the draft is. Talent evaluation. So what he stopped whiffing people and didn't make it to a # 2 starter. Same with Hermida, he's a big leaguer. You produce two average starting pitchers, outfielder, and a bench guy that's a great draft. Let alone Johnson looks to be above average, and Hermida and Olsen still have plenty of years before their prime to show improvement.

 

Just a little harsh. I don't like everything Beinfest does, but he's pretty damn good when it comes to talent evaluation.

I actually think the worst trade was Castillo for Bowyer and Tyler.

If it's true we took Petit over Milledge in the Delgado deal, that's the worst trade to me. But no one has ever been able to confirm that even if we have our suspicions.

 

If not, probably agree with you with Castillo, but that Olsen one is going to look pretty bad unless Smolinski turns into something.

Im going to post this again about Choi... the Choi trade is certainly NOT the worst trade in Beinfest's history, there are several definitively above it... here's the rationale:

Just to clarify, because this bothers me... Hee Seop Choi wasn't a horrible/bad/not good/average player for us... quite the contrary:

 

.270/.388/.495 - in 95 games

 

Are you kidding me?

 

Plus 15 HRs...

 

Hee Seop Choi may be the best kept secret in Marlins history... it's once he went West and landed us Paul LoL Duca that this: .161/.289/.242 happened.

 

If you look at it through the view Nny took though, we really did OK on that trade... considering we couldn't afford Lee anyways and that the alternative was DFA... we got a 1B that essentially matched his 2003 production, wasn't horrible with the glove (though Nny can correct me if I'm wrong) and was significantly cheaper... It's not as if we got "burned" on the trade. We made a "money-first" trade and did really well considering we had ZERO leverage... because the conversation with the Cubs probably went like this...

 

Cubs: We want Lee... you're either gonna trade him to us for Choi... or you're gonna wind up DFAing him and losing him for nothing

Marlins: Sounds good...

 

I assume similar conversations were had with the Orioles. Dodgers etc... and their "Chois" weren't as good/cheap

 

And yes, I get your point that we don't "hands down win" every trade with the Cubs... but this trade always seems to be tagged with some negative connotation, when in fact it was pretty good

 

Trades I would put "above" Lee/Choi in terms of "bad/useless":

 

Petit for Julio

Castillo for Bowyer/Tyler

Encarnacion for Ezi

Valdez + Cash for Koch (not because Valdez was particularly good, but because Koch was meh)

Mark Redman for ONLY Mike Neu and PTBNL

 

Seriously... Choi was pretty good

I think for talent evaluation you have to factor in the names that were passed over. I'm still liking the Hermida pick but it's troubling to see names like Kazmir, Hamels, and Cain being passed over. This is even when you consider that there was likely a stated goal of wanting to draft an outfielder over a pitcher.
