Ken Rosenthal with interesting details on last summers shenanigans with the Padres.

 

Turns out when Colin Rea blew out his elbow the Marlins wanted to take back the entire trade and their plan was to trade Naylor to the Phillies for Hellickson which the Phillies had already agreed upon! Then Castillo would be flipped to another team for a controllable starter before the trade deadline. The Marlins couldn't get the entire trade vetoed so they agreed upon Rea returned for Castillo and the Phillies backed off on trading Hellickson to anyone. Also explains why Castillo got traded for Straily. Seems like they were always intent on using Castillo as bait for a controllable starter.

i think the only real fuck you here belongs to mike hill. this trade actually looks even worse now. Only Mike Hill. 

 

Of course it looks worse.

 

But there were some idiots here who were defending that trade on the grounds that there was no way in hell that the Marlins could have gotten Hellickson. The premise was basically that the Phillies asking price was too high and that was apparently not true at all.

"A complete voiding of the initial trade, as the Marlins understood it, would have been complicated by the fact that Cashner already had pitched for them, allowing one earned run in six innings in a 5-4 victory over the Cardinals on July 31."

 

What "COMPLICATED" would prevented them to complete voiding that terrible trade !? as COMPLICATED as Hill's BRAIN !?

This is just another reason why Mike Hill has no business near any front office. I know [uSER=5078]@pollyvonwog[/uSER] will remember this one.

 

Chicago reportedly asked the Astros for a package including young right-hander Joe Musgrove and top prospects Francis Martes and Kyle Tucker when the two sides last engaged in serious Quintana talks, and that package was deemed too steep by Houston. Musgrove, after all, made his big league debut at age 23 last year and threw 62 solid innings with a 4.06 ERA, 8.0 K/9, 2.3 BB/9 and a 43.4 percent ground-ball rate. He’d be controllable for at least another six seasons and possibly seven, depending on how much service time he accumulates in 2017. Martes and Tucker, meanwhile, are considered two of Houston’s best prospects and both ranked within the game’s top 35 prospect in MLB.com’s recent rankings. (Both were within the top 60 on this week’s top 100 rankings from ESPN’s Keith Law, as well.)

 

Remember Franics Martes? They guy we kind of just threw in the trade for Jared Cosart a couple years ago? Now he is a Top 35 prospect and has been doing quite well in the Houston system.

Qustion, kind of off subject, but any chance we could get Park for nothing?

 

Parking at the ballpark garages is usually about $15. You can park for less on someone's lawn in the nearby community. I doubt you can park for nothing unless you do something like park at a nearby business and walk to the ballpark. I tend to just pay up for the parking garages for the convenience of it. Hope this helps, let me know.

My impression is that Hill could not find the way to send Cashner back to San Diego after he had pitched well in his first start and the League preferred to mediate than to cancel the Trade but the option was available to cancel the trade
