Future Marlins Offseason speculation thread

A reliever or 2 definitely have to be added.   Serio Romo, Bud Norris, Adam Warren, and Ryan Madson make sense.  Perhaps even taking a flier on AJ Ramos on a minor league deal.

 

Also, with Brinson, Dean, Cooper, Sierra, and Granderson, and Rosell Herrera the only OFs in camp with MLB experience (not counting Anderson), I would think signing another OF to at least a minor league deal would be wise.  There are still a bunch of useful OF out there and the Marlins should have some money to spend.  Adam Jones, CarGo, Span, Parra, and Melky Cabrera all make sense.

Also, I think that signing CarGo to an incentive laden deal would make a lot of sense.

 

Agreed - follow the trend of all of baseball this off-season, give him a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. If he does well, great, off-load him to a contender who needs an outfield/bench bat. It's going to be exactly the same with Granderson, really.

Camp starts on Monday, I'm not sure why people think they are going to suddenly add players now. I was surprised at the Granderson deal but that was a minor league deal with an invite to ST so they don't have to pay him unless he makes the team (which seems pretty likely since I think the FO has said that the only guarantee is that Lewis Brinson will be a starter).

What's our starting OF currently?

 

Aren't they thinking about moving Garrett Cooper to left field for whatever reason?

 

So, I think right now, it's ... Cooper, Brinson, Anderson if Prado is healthy? [Although I'd so much prefer just having Prado be a bench bat / de facto bench coach]

 

Personally I hope O'Brien gets the most looks at first base.

If Prado is healthy it's pretty much Brinson Anderson Granderson, not gonna really bump Brinson or Anderson for CarGo and leave Granderson out to dry. I mean yes they could do it but it doesn't seem to fit the plan right now. If Prado goes down then it fits better but that isn't something they can really assume.

The free agent market is still at a standstill because of Harper / Machado. Plenty of players have still not been signed. Honestly, this is the dumbest shit I have ever seen and it is pathetic. This is worse than last year with the signings. Once those idiots finally sign then everything will start picking up. I expect them to make a couple more signings before March.

So what do we have:

 

Starters: C- Alfaro, 1B- OBrien/Walker, 2B- Castro, SS- Rojas/Riddle, 3B- Prado, LF-Granderson, CF- Brinson, RF- Anderson

 

Bench: C- Holladay, 1B- OBrien/Walker, SS- Rojas/Riddle, OF- Sierra, ???

 

SP: Smith, Lopez, Richards, Straily, Urena

 

RP: Guerrero, Conley, Eveld, Steckenrider, Garcia, Alcantara, Chen

 

Idk who you'd fit in that last bench spot, and I have no idea what to do with our seven SPs but I hope they'd shove Chen in the bullpen and let the young guys start. Am I missing someone?
