Trades - We Be Sellin'

Recommended Posts

Nobody's going to take Cishek. I know on MLBTradeRumors they mentioned that Cishek will probably get non-tendered after the season. They should have sold high on him, but didn't, and now they will get nothing out of it.

I disagree. He is pitching better and a good flyer for a contending team. Now the Marlins may not get much and have to eat some salary, but he will be moved.

I'm really worried that the Fish will give up something of value in order to get another god damn contract taken off their hands. Something like Ramos + Morse for some shitbird Single-A player who will never sniff a 40-man roster just so the other team takes on all of Morse's contract.

 

Ugh.

If they trade Ramos, the only thing that makes sense is getting a good young 3B who can play June 2016 absolute latest. I would hope he isn't used in a salary dump.

Obviously the one year guys like Haren and Latos should be and will be dealt for the maximum return.

The only people under club control past this year they should trade are Cishek and Morse. Other than that keep all the talent you can on the roster stocked up for next year and beyond. No point in trading Kohler, Hand or anyone else that gives us more value than their possible return. Even Prado is super valuable considering his versatility and the fact that we have him at a discount thanks to the Yanks.

Prado and Koehler are going to make around $14 million next year. Add Dunn, $17.5. 

Save $2.5 with Ozuna by keeping him down until he is not super 2 eligible, and trade Ramos (who would make around $3 in arbitration) for a young 3B and let Dietrich play ROS, and the team has saved $23 million. 

Ditch Haren, Cishek, Latos, and Baker trade deadline, save another $7 millionish.

You now have 1/3rd of Greinke's next contract, and the Marlins will have their whole team squared away next year besides their bench (assuming they get a 3B trading all of the above). Even more money if they can somehow move Morse.

Clear them out, get young guys, and immediately use the payroll on SP.

roll out Realmuto Bour Gordon Hech "young 3B" yelich Ozuna Stanton morse Rojas Dietrich 

fernandez ACE Alvarez nicolino phelps/cosart

capps Dyson phelps/cosart Urena hand Conley and Morris 

All those guys traded above mean nothing to 2016. Clear them out, get an ace.

I'm hopeful we sign two ~15m SP instead of one ~30m SP, as I'm only optimistic in Alvarez to perform better than a #4 but I'm not optimistic in his health. I'd rather have #1-#2-#3-#3-#4 (which would then be 1/2/3/4/5 with an Alvarez injury) than a #1-#1-#3-#4-#5 which would just be a 1/1/4/5/5 with Alvarez going down.

Hearing rumors that the Giants want to re acquire Morse... We'd have to eat a good amount of that salary. Would be nice, don't see how he's any better than Bour at this point. Be nice to finally spend some money to get a solid prospect in return but its Loria and the Flounders so won't happen

Nothing to those rumors at least at this time.
