The Astros want the best catcher in the league and they want to give us their 5th best prospect.  They need to eat a bag of dicks.  

They can give us their fifth.

So long as they add in their first.

The narrative has been "Angels got Lucroy, another suitor off the table, Marlins losing leverage" but Lucroy is yet another option off the table for teams that need catching upgrades which in turn makes JT even more valuable to those teams. The Marlins still have leverage folks, all they've lost is the Angels but the other teams still want catching help.

Isn't it kind of a wash, really? Sure, we lose one more team that may have tried to get JT, but as you say, there's now more urgency as there are less available catchers. Should be a net zero situation.

I don't know about a wash, might even be an advantage for the Marlins. If the remaining teams need a catcher and they no longer have backup options like Lucroy Grandal Ramos McCann etc then they might be more likely to give in on Realmuto.

Yeah, that's true. And any team that wants him can't throw it against us of, "there's less teams going for him now," because we can respond with, "we don't HAVE to trade him right now."

The only way the Marlins lose leverage is if there is literally only one suitor left. 2 or more and the Marlins can hold their ground all they want.

Didn't the Halos have a worse farm system than us when we have a worst farm system in the league ?

And like I said, the Marlins can say, "well we can hold on to him for now then." You hope he stays healthy and continues to progress as he has over the years and get an even better return at the deadline.

You and I finally agree on something.

Wasnt even aware the the Angels and/or Lucroy mean anything to the Realmuto conversation in 2019.  

 

Last year was ummmm pretty fucking bad for Lucroy.  And the Angels have no farm.  Anyone in on Realmuto would only have gone after Lucroy if there was literally no other option. Maybe.
