2021 Trade Deadline Thread


Recommended Posts

Alright, let’s throw around some possible scenarios. I’ll start....

I’m really interested in Trey Mancini. He can play some outfield and be the right handed platoon to Lewin going forward at first base too. He’s basically a much better version of Coop with the ability to stay healthy (obviously other than the Cancer situation which hopefully never reappears). I prefer him to Mullins 100000%, what do you think it would take to acquire him?

If we were in contention I would agree with you.   At this point,  he's not the type of player the Marlins are looking for.   He's almost 30 and only has 1 more year of control left. At this point, the Marlins are looking for younger and more controllable players. 

Mullins on the other hand is only 26 and has 3 or 4 years of control left. He also plays CF which is a position of need once we trade Marte.

Yeah but the same thing goes with him as Bart, you just don’t know what you get with him since this is the first time he’s played a full season. Plus, he’s pretty much what we’ll get with Bleday when he comes up.

The amount of control doesn’t bother me actually. I think the best way for them to proceed given their limited resources is to keep getting these Marte types with a season or two of control to both produce and bridge the gap to the outfield prospects and later flip for more assets to fill areas of need. Otherwise, to get an impact player with 4-5 seasons of control they’ll have to give up 1-2 A++ prospects and I’m not really with that. I prefer filling the team with solid 2-3 war guys than a 4 war guy and a bunch of fringe major leaguers. For example, the Red Sox signed Hunter Renfroe for a little over $4M and he’s been one of the best pickups of the the past 10 years for them. If this team is smart, they can find multiple good players, platoon them correctly and get just as much production as some of these 15M-20M AAV players (a’la Tampa Bay) They just have to stop acting like Berti, Devers, Sierra, Wallach, Brinson, Marrero are major league players and get some real pieces to fill the roster (sorry for the long reply lol)

it would tide me over until the offseason. they have NO excuse not to spend to fill in some gaps during this offseason.  regardless of trades made at the deadline, there will be more work to be done during the offseason.  So if it APPEARS they're getting in line to field a competitive team in '22 i'll be happy but that happy feeling will vanish if they do nothing again in the offseason. 

 

Fair?

Agreed here completely - Sure, it'd be a good start.  But if they do that and then proceed to do nothing in the offseason saying "we did our shopping already, we're done", then it'll just be more of the same.

The focus for the Giants is only for this year.  Being a team in need to make that playoff push gives the sellers the leverage at a higher premium.  Every playoff push the Marlins made they over spent, that I remember.

Marte is a huge asset regardless of him being a rental next year.  

 

To be fair, teams would basically deal with Loria who'd say "ok" to trading anyone not on a list with no other input.

It would help, but I am more interested in something like this:

Not Buxton specifically, but if the team shows it is willing to give someone a fairly sized contract, then I will be pretty happy.

I'll believe it when I see it.  Not necessarily Buxton (no thanks based on injury history), just spending in general.
