Marlins trade/FA talk

General thread for trade and FA thoughts. Feel free to create specific threads as needed.

 

Heyman thinks the Cubs and Marlins could discuss swapping some top prospects since we have pitching & the Cubs have position players. Not sure I see it... Bryant and Mike Olt are 3b where we already have Moran coming, Soler & Almora are outfielders so I doubt we'd have interest. Baez is a stud and would have to take Heaney at least to get him, or a lot of others. I doubt either team is looking to trade those guys.

DeSclefani was our minor league pitcher of the year and Flynn is our most major league ready LHP starter

I mean you can substitute for Nicolino you get a bit more potential but less major league readiness

You can work in Koehler in the deal as well and these 3 would be solid additions to any pitching staff

Koehler versatility is a manager's dream

You need to include Marisnick/Ozuna+ if you don't give up Heaney

 

And after looking at Baez a bit more, it might not even be possible at all without Heaney.

 

 

I would imagine the Fish include Eovaldi and Alvarez when they discuss potential deals too, particularly now that they've demonstrated a little success up here.

I thought when I started reading the article that these prospects would be discussed in a package to entice the Marlins to trade Giancarlo Stanton.

 

This isn't happening. Bryant/Baez/Soler/Almora are top of the top of the top prospects, and those are the kind of guys teams don't trade away unless they're getting a proven superstar in return. Stanton by himself would lure only two of these guys max. None of our players or prospects other than Stanton would lead us to any of these guys.

What, so we can't trade Brad Hand for Javier Baez? Impossible!

I believe a packet that includes DeScalfani and Flynn would suffice for Baez

however everywhere I read Starlin Castro is the one being offered by the Cubs

BTW the rumor Mill has Houston shopping Jason Castro I hope the Marlins put in a decent bid

 

How did this go unnoticed? Castro would be a HUGE acquisition for the Marlins... Astros have shown they are more than willing to wheel and deal anybody and everybody for prospects, and right now we have 'em... I would love this.

I'm not surprised there's interest but I am not fully convinced we trade him.

If the Marlins get offered anything good, they should dump Morrison. He is the next Jeremy Hermida.

I actually think he would rake in the right park and lineup. Yankees would be a really good fit with Tex health problems, short porch, and depth in the lineup.

We agree to disagree then. I think Morrison is a stiff.
