If Bleday, Harrison, and Sanchez are crushing it, sure!

Aguilar, too.

But if they're not doing too well, no, keep em down. Case by case basis. Dickerson should be traded regardless IMO.

Just don't rule out anything, if the prospects didn't play well and the veterans play good and also would like to stay in the team, the most important if this team also compete, then why not just try to retain Marte and Corey after the 2021 season. It's not means to spend big, it means to adjust the plan when it's needed.

Eh, depending on the price, I’d be fine with Starling coming back as insurance. But I have no interest in ever seeing Dickerson again. You could trade him right now for all I care.

Why not give him one more chance ? Ng has high confidence he would bounce back …

That’s the problem, other than a couple of 3 war seasons (both in hitter friendly parks) he’s barely a replacement level player. Sure he’s had a couple of good offensive seasons, but other than one season of his career he’s terrible defensively and that negates any positives from his bat. So idk where he’s “bouncing” back to. He’s making more than Rosario, and Rosario is the more consistently overall productive player. 
 

They should have traded Dickerson And his Salary for a bag of peanuts and signed Rosario to replace him. And before anyone says “no one would trade for Dickerson”, remember that Dexter Fowler got traded and he is even worse than Dickerson and making twice as much.

A shameful lack of puns in that tweet.

That's nice in theory, but the Fowler trade saved the Cardinals less than $2M and Rosario cost $8M. So in order for someone to cover Dickerson's entire salary, the Marlins would have to package him with a prospect. And frankly, friend, that triggers Loria flashbacks.
