You forgot the 3rd guy.

Crap so did I, I forgot his name seriously.

LMAO! I actually didn't. Was thinking they would actually acquire another positon player but they seemed to be off limits from the Phillies.

Will Stewart looks to be a real solid piece though.

They going to re-invest that JT salary money?

They still wanna sign a reliever or two. I see that money being invested back into the bullpen. Might see them sign a closer now. I still don't think they got with the closer by committee like they have been talking about.

Alfaro is a WC in this deal. 5 years of team control. Only 25. Some Plus Power and good defensively. Sixto Sanchez is only 20 y/o, but he has had injury concerns. I think Sixto could use a year of seasoning in minors before coming up next year. No sense in rushing him. Will Stewart is an intriguing piece. I like his stats. The International Bonus $$ could help Marlins sign Yolmer Sanchez. He was projected to be the starting SS for the Cuban National Team before he defected. ?

 

Maybe the Marlins can convince the SS to sign if he can compete for the MLB right away. ?

I honestly think Marlins did about as well as they could have done. I still cannot believe Machado and Harper haven’t signed, and it’s FEBRUARY! ? so many great FA’s still available. Dallas Kuechel, a Cy Young Winner, is still available.

It'd be crazy creative if they got this guy immediately after this and essentially made Sanchez part of this trade return. What a nice move that would be.

So then we would have gotten Victor Victor and Sanchez Sanchez this offseason?

Love the deal. We got Alfaro who can immediately step in at catcher. 

He can't immediately step in, there's still a few more days before pitchers and catchers report. It would be a waste for him to step in so early.

Well this seems not terrible.  I am unsure how to proceed without the usual post-trade rage.

Yeah people acting like Alfaro is just here to replace JT in the short term but he could still be a good long term piece.
