Starlin Castro being in this deal is hilarious. It's so useless when teams take on the guy at the big league level. It's the lazy way out in terms of balancing the budget and negotiating. I'd rather have 2 C+ level prospects in Rookie ball 

 

He’s gonna get flipped to the angels for prospects.

If you're trying to get rid of $295 million in salary taking back one player that you can flip elsewhere for other prospects is a small price to pay .

Not when you pay the price of not getting any elite level prospects back and then have to negotiate a further deal with no leverage.

Its not the Stanton deal that’s hamstrung the organization. It’s the likes of the Chen deal, the Prado deal, and the Vólquez deal. This is Loria’s mess, but the Stanton deal was not the problem. 

 

I’m waiting for the day, when Miami finally gets that one superstar that actually wants to be in Miami.

 

Personally, I think the new ownership group could have saved face by holding onto Stanton, and trading the likes of Ozuna/Yelich/Realmuto to receive some legit prospects. With the rate that young talent is ascending to the majors and impacting the game these days, I think that would have been the quicker route to competitiveness. Potentially to the point where we were competitive enough to convince Stanton not to opt out. If he did decide to opt out, then it’s him turning his back on the city, and he becomes the bad guy. Not the new ownership group.

Stanton didnt want to be a part of a rebuild. THAT WAS the original plan.
