Excellent return for 2 months of Marte. Now the big decision; what impact bat are they able to get with the pitching surplus. They’ve done an A+ job acquiring the talent, who they acquire with it will determine our next 2-3 years

Not complaining about the trade.  It’s a bit surprising it was for a pitcher, so it leads me to this question.  

If we traded a pitching prospect for another CF, wouldn’t that be a push as we just traded a CF for a pitcher?

What do you mean? If we do that then we got both another big league ready starting pitcher and a big league CF who will be here in 2022, we didn't have that this morning so that would make us better going forward.

Marte had 2 months left on his contract, I'd like to think they wouldn't acquire a CF with the same contract situation.

Not really, since the combo of P/CF’er we’d be getting in return are likely to help us more in 2022.

Luzardo is more big league ready than the prospect(s) we’re likely trading to get a CF’er.

The CF’er should have more years of control than Marte who is a free agent at the end of the year.

Wonderful trade. Idk why you guys had little faith.. They've generally done a great job in trading and drafting. It's the lack of moves that hurts them. When they make a move, it's a good one.

This is a good point. Excited for what's next.

Not necessarily as the new CF would presumably have more team control (and team friendly contract) in addition to being younger.

I know this was meant to be a joke, but it’s absolutely accurate. I can already see the feature.... “Marlins get two intriguing youngsters and the A’s will pay the remainder of Marte’s contract”

Kinda impressed that it looks like they're working multiple trades to get their targets. Feels like Loria would have demanded Marte for a CF which would have lessened the return, they'd get a prospect CF and say it was a great move. Seems like this FO is more creative and wiser about their goals.
