Realmuto updates and rumors

Recommended Posts

I can tell all of you one thing, from everything I've read and heard, there is absolutely 0 chance Whitley is moved.

Lower their trade demands from something extortionist to something doable.  If they would lower their asking price, they probably get into a bidding war and approach their asking price.  

Extending him to Posey figures is moronic.  Wait a year is not good.

Play out his deal is more a fuck you option and is a viable option too, if you dont care about a long term return and want to send a message.

 

So its really either lower their trade demands slightly.  or just say fuck you to JT.  Though from listening to Mike Hill that appears to be the route they are taking, probably after getting burned in other deals, so I dont blame him.  

It almost feels like they feel badly about last winter and they’re overcompensating in the other direction in terms of trade demands

Realmuto is worth a top prospect, I don't see them extorting anyone or asking for too much. The alternative is they take less than his value and are rightfully ridiculed again for it.

Yea it's funny how the Marlins are laughed at when they rush a trade but then laughed at when they try and hold out for better. 

And in some cases it is the same people that have said both things.

And then suddenly, "Marlins sign Realmuto to four year $65M deal." Fans: "LOL how stupid they're not going to compete any time soon why would they do that"

Nobody is denying he is worth a top prospect.

Its the Marlins wanting 2 top prospects PLUS that is why Realmuto is still a Marlin.

I think the problem is you must have a different definition of "top prospect"  The Marlins aren't asking for Whitley AND Tucker (actual top prospects), that'd be nuts. They asked for one of them and you called it extortion. They asked for Acuna last year from Atlanta, again ONE top prospect.
