Marlins 1b situation

I understand Yelich won the gold glove but I really wouldn't mind having him move to 1st base. He played there in high school and there are more OF options obviously. Add a power bat in LF to hit behind Stanton. It's just my opinion, thoughts?

 

 

 

Would he be the first person to win a gold glove at one position and move to another the next year? Probably. Because that is a bad idea.

 

And no, that doesn't mean we should move Giancarlo there either. He was a gold glove finalist, too. Maybe in five years.

It's happened, often too. Players get in the lineup where they are needed, not where they are wanted. Selflessness and sacrifice for the greater good of a team, and the ability to add an impact player often makes it an easy move for a player.

 

Yelich to 1B is a good option, considering his length and career projections.

 

Go get Cargo, Tulo, and Headley and you have the chance for a special team.

I have also thought about moving Yelich to first in spite of the gold glove. I guess it would all depend on who they could sign or trade for in order to make that decision.

 

Would not mind trading for Carlos Gonzalez. Give the Rockies some pitching. In that case I could bear moving Yelich to first. Or maybe Gonzalez would be ok moving there to avoid injury…..who knows?

I would be a lot more comfortable having Yelich move rather than Cargo, not sure Cargo is even capable. He would be a great addition to our lineup obviously.

I wonder what it would take to get both Tulo and Cargo. Heaney, Hech, Koehler is a start lol

We don't have the assets to get Tulo, much less Tulo & Cargo.

 

Also, it's not worth it. I'd rather not give up pitching depth for a guy who's been unspectacular outside of Coors Field in his career. Plus, he's injury prone, as well. No thanks.

 

The Braves supposedly want more for Upton than they got for Heyward. That's Heaney+, especially since we're in their division. And I believe that Upton only has a year left on his contract.

Yelich stays. He's a gold glove LF. Just leave it be, no time to panic and mess with a great defensive outfield in a park that needs it.

It's actually a better idea to just move Stanton to first. Yelich has no injury history and more is invested in Stanton's bat.

The Marlins front office has made it clear this offseason that they like the left side of the infield for some reason. Nothing is going to change there. They want to upgrade at 1B and 2B. Hech will stay at SS and Casey will play 3B.

 

Absolutely right about Hech, but I feel if Casey struggles to start the year, they'll figure out something to replace him.

The A's have a lot of 1B/OF type guys now. I wonder if they'll trade one of those guys.

 

 

 

I would like for them trade for Kyle Blanks. Shouldn't cost us much too much to get him. However if they want to make a bigger splash I would call the Dodgers and ask about Adrian Gonzales. Not sure he would be available but with the new management in LA and them try to shed some salaries maybe they will listen.
