Call em up or leave em down?

I really wish they'd let Granderson go.  Nobody is going to trade for him. They did the right thing by picking some vets in the offseason in hopes of maybe flipping them at the deadline but that experiment failed this year.  Time to jettison the dead weight and let some other guys play. I highly doubt they'll be any worse.  Don't care if they're career minor leaguers.  Just put some new blood in there and see what happens.  You could literally have a new outfield of guys batting .210 and it would likely be an upgrade as mind boggling as that is to say.

Good low risk signing by the Marlins hoping he could have a good first half and net you something at the deadline.

It hasnt worked out, so the low risk part is whats nice.  Should be getting that DFA.  Should have already gotten it tbh.  

He has no trade value.  He is blocking one of these 24/25 year old guys that the Marlins should be giving more playing time to.  

It makes zero sense for this team in this situation to roll out Grandy on a regular basis.

Give Dean a chance, hitting .372 with .455 OBP.  Earned a call up. Marlins OF hitting .179 (Grand) .192 (Herrera) .167 (Galloway & Obrien)

Rotating the same crap.  Dean has been doing this a number of times, hitting great in the minors, getting called up and then being around .230.  It really does not matter, but does not fall under the guise of "earning" anything.

except .230 is an actual significant improvement for the current production.

Monte Harrison 16 stolen bases this year without being caught.

How do they not notice the missing bases on the field?
