Marlins trade Badenhop


Recommended Posts

The Rays acquired right-hander Burke Badenhop from the Marlins for minor league catcher Jake Jefferies, according to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times (Twitter link).






So long Hopper.


And that completes the Miguel Cabrera trade.....

Don't we also still have Dustin Richardson in the minors?



No, I don't think so.


Not that he's really a long reliever.


Also, one of the replacements for Hopper/Hensley is technically Cishek, since he wasn't on the Opening Day roster last year and should make the team next year.


Our bullpen is Bell, Mujica, Cishek, Webb, Dunn, Choate, long reliever.

To Tampa Bay? This couldn't have been Hopper for Shields straight up? No?



Actually, the more I think of it... considering Hopper's already had a few solid major league seasons under his belt... we couldn't realistically get more for him? I know he's "just a reliever" but this doesn't seem like a decent return considering his contributions to us.

What the?! With trading Hensley and Hopper we now have no long reliever?!?



Oh no, how will we ever make it now??????? Those long relievers are soooooooo valuable!!!


Wade LeBlanc...


While I did forget about LeBlanc, I don't think you can underestimate the importance of a long reliever while we have Nolasco and Volstad pencilled in as starters...
