Yoenis Cespedes

The Marlins already employ perhaps the best offensive outfield in baseball with Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna, so they seem an unlikely suitor for the Cuban slugger. The death of Jose Fernandez last month, however, has the Marlins reeling. Cespedes, whose offseason home on a ranch in Florida is a couple of hours from Miami, would be some protection for Stanton and Yelich and as a Cuban defector, he would appeal to the community that Fernandez reached. The Marlins have shopped Ozuna around in the past and could easily make room for Cespedes. The Marlins may come out of nowhere to join the race.

Yes! Yelich in CF!! Cespedes in left. Ozuna is better than the other options anyway so why downgrade? Fowler? Another singles hitter?? We have pitching, we don't have starting pitching. Sign Chapman as well and do a 10-12 man bullpen rotation that pitches 30-40 pitches every 3 games. No starters.

Mattingly is not a good enough in-game manager to make something like that work.

It would take a flexible and cautious manager experimenting with it in some minor league team for a year or 2 to analyze it and work the kinks out and encounter all the idiosyncrasies/troubles that come with it. Then if successful, the program can get referred to MLB manager or that manager can get promoted to something like pitching coach.

the rotation is currently the bottom 5 in mlb and arguably the absolute worst. he really has no choice but to overpay for both, really

 

I'm scared of the overpay + loosing draft picks I'm sure both will have Qualifying Offers. I don't mind for Hellickson but Hill Yikes!

 

Not Michael(Hill) he's a double Yikes!
