2014 Marlins Trade Deadline


Recommended Posts


Unfortunately I agree. For whatever reason they're hellbent on not letting Dietrich play baseball here, so if we can get some value for him, that would be fine. Milone could hopefully improve a bit in the NL East and pitching in Marlins Park, but maybe that's wishful thinking.

 

We all know what that reason is....it's like the 800 lb gorilla no one wants to acknowledge.

Billy Beane is too smart to acquire DD.

 

I disagree. I see a ton of similarities between DD and Brandon Moss, who had extremely similar numbers to DD before he made it to Oakland. I think a lot of us see the same potential in Dietrich that Beane saw in Moss, but I guess that's just me speculating. I would be very surprised if Beane was not highly interested in a player like DD.

According to Frisaro, the marlins have told teams Cishek is not available...

 

Ideally he's not, but a few more bad games before the trade deadline and they'll definitely be listening.

 

I absolutely love having Cishek on this team but he's also a luxury and not a necessity. I'd at least listen and try and get a solid overpay from someone.

Come on guys, Hechavarria puts on his batting gloves as good as anyone I've ever seen play the game.

 

I tried to find a picture of him wearing his batting gloves incorrectly and found nothing. Therefore, I can confirm: Adeiny Hechavarria does indeed put on his batting gloves as well as perennial All Stars and Hall of Famers.

According to Clark Spencer, the Marlins still want Jim Johnson and have been thinking of dealing Adam Conley for him. Also, the Mariners are interested in McGehee and MIGHT PLAY HIM IN THE OUTFIELD if they acquire him.

 

LOL

I'm fine with going after Johnson even if he does suck this year so far, but I'd rather not trade Conley for somebody struggling so bad this year. While Conley's ceiling is likely a #4/5 starter (and more likely a long reliever long term) and he's struggled this year in the minors himself, I think there's guys in AA that should be enough to get Johnson. Maybe offer someone like Scott Lyman and see if the A's would take it. Lyman was doing really well in Jupiter this year and seems like a project arm that would match up well in a trade for an "on the downswing" reliever like Johnson.

Find out who Beane wants and only refuse him that player.

 

"Well, I know Giancarlo is off the table, so I'll go down the list. We'd like Adeiny Hechavarria. We're willing to give up Sonny Gray, Sean Doolittle, and Josh Donaldson for him. What do you say?"

"HELL NO!"
