    After checking his salary and seeing him being an expiring contract after next year, id just do it as a throw in to the deal to relieve them of some salary.
    I would agree if Mattingly wasn't here. He can't stand the guy and would likely say he is a bad example for the younger guys. Like the "gm's" said I could see Puig,Mitchell White and Keibert Ruiz for Stanton deal but also could see Adrian Gonzalez's contract,Mitchell White,Keibert Ruiz and another prospect for him too but also could see a 3 way to that send Stanton to LA,Puig and more to ?,prospects to Miami

    Why I keep saying the first guy we need to deal is Stanton-figure out what u can get for him then go from there. So many possibilties we could get 6 or 7 prospects from a 3 way and really start a rebuild. Stanton to LAD,Puig to Toronto,Mitchell White/Keibert Ruiz/Sean Reid-Foley/Anthony Alford and low level guys Then Ozuna to St Louis for Jack Flaherty,Dakota Hudson,Harrison Bader or another ML Ready OF and ?.

    Trade 3 guys and get about 10-12 prospects for 2019

    *Cards fan have there own ideas*

    https://www.vivaelbirdos.com/st-loui...-marcell-ozuna

    •Christian Yelich + Wei-Yin Chen (and his entire contract) for Jack Flaherty, Harrison Bader, Dakota Hudson, Austin Gomber, and Junior Fernandez.

    I hear they like Ozuna more BUT if they made that offer I would jump on it quickly. Rather have another position(Edmundo Sosa/Delvin Perez) guy instead of Gomber but gives u 3 quality arms and a replacement for Yelich while getting rid of Chen's contract. Then u can still trade Ozuna to Toronto

    By way the Yelich asking price has not come down. They want more than Washington got for Adam Eaton still. Min 2 Top 50 Prospects and more(3-4 prospects). They are NOT shopping him but are listening to offers IF they come in at that.

    They do not anticipate trading him but are listening

    I'd do that Yelich + Chen deal in a second. No one will ever take on the entirety of his contract though unfortunately. PLus I dont want to lessen the vlaue that we would receive from trading Yelich without attaching a bad contract. I dont really want to trade Yelich regardless. He has an incredibly affordable contract and should still be here and be good for cheap by the time this rebuild is complete. He can stay. JT id be cool with trading for a huge haul because he doesnt have a long term contract and in the best case will have 1 year left when our rebuild is complete.

    In regards to Chen, I think we should just bite the bullet, clear as much other salary as possible/wait for Ziegler and Tazawa to expire after next year and then just hope Chen can pitch a full year at some point and either get as much value as we can from him for the remainder of his contract or hope he rebuilds some of his value later in the contract. Cause as of now he is a pitcher who cant pitch and also has a huge contract. Id hope he can pitch at somepoint in the future at an effective level and then he's just an OK pitcher with a huge contract, which is more manageable.

    Ya I know they won't just saying what Cards fan are saying about it. I would do Ozuna OR Yelich and Chen for Flaherty,Hudson,Fernandez,Bader and Edmundo Sosa in a second. Get rid of Chen's deal and get pretty much exactly what u want

    Ozuna and Chen im down to do in a heartbeat. Yelich still has a very affordable 5 years left on his deal and im not trading unless im getting 3 top prospects.

    The Heyman article about Loria being annoyed that Jeter is doing everything the opposite of what he recommended is absolutely hilarious.

    Doing literally the complete opposite of Loria might not be that crazy of a strategy haha. Call him up for 'advice' all the time and do the opposite.

    The hilarious part is that was the exact reason he didn't sell the team to Jorge Mas. Mas wanted to do the exact opposite of what Jeff did and he thought that Jeter would be open to him and his guys. Like usual Jeff was wrong

    Loria, who’s in England and couldn’t be reached for comment, is said to be particularly upset about how recent drafts have gone. The Marlins’ last three first rounders – pitchers Tyler Kolek, Braxton Garrett and Trevor Rogers – had injuries and didn’t throw a single pitch in a game this year (and word is that this year’s top pick, Rogers, was homesick, which is more common than one might think, contributing to his season) – though it’s hard to say who else may have influenced these picks, and bad luck has been the main factor in their performances thus far.

    Love the part about how he is upset about how recent drafts went. This is the owner who wants his hands on everything BUT when it comes to the draft he let Stan Meek DO IT ALL. Scout,Draft,Sign. Article says he wanted Meek gone but Jeter is keeping him.(Meek is getting demoted tho) So Jeff is blaming Stan Meek for the poor farm system even tho for 5+years he could care less about it shit he probably couldn't even tell u when the draft was

    Rogers better figure stuff out because he will be in NC/FL his next 5 years

    http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/sp...178711301.html

    Clark Spencer is reporting ownership wants payroll to be around $90M for next year.....

    According to a Major League Baseball source, Jeter and fellow owner Bruce Sherman proposed cutting the team’s 2018 payroll to around $90 million — down from last season’s franchise-record $115 million — as part of the operating plan they submitted to league owners during the approval process.

    ...

    If the current roster was left unchanged, next year’s payroll would approach $140 million, meaning ownership would need to eliminate about $50 million to get to the $90 million target figure they presented to owners. The owners could always choose to exceed or fall below $90 million.

    It's kinda hard to build a roster for $140 million that is this bad.

    Ok, so if we have to cut 50 million from the current team out of the current group of guys without trading stanton (which i realize we will likely do): T

    Trade Ozuna (11M)
    Trade Prado (13.5 m, assume we eat 3.5m, so 10 million)
    Trade Dee (10.8)
    Trade Ziegler and Tazawa (16 million total, assume we eat 6 million, so another10 million)
    Bour (3.5 million)

    That right there is a total of 44.8 million saved. We could also deal Dietrich for 3.8 million saved so we're around 48 million. So it's certainly doable, but if we're gonna trade everyone might as well just do a full rebuild.

    Im still on the train of clear as much salary as we can from guys that have contracts that go past the end of next year. Bite the bullet or just get as much as you can for guys like Ziegler and Tazawa and then just wait until the end of next year when Volquez expires. If we trade Stanton, i'd love to see us eat as much money as possible for Ziegler and Tazawa and use the savings that we could get from a Stanton trade to take on some of their salary to get a better return and accelerate the rebuild.


    BTW, Craig Mish, who has solid marlins sources, said on Twitter today that the marlins love Eduardo Rodriguez FWIW. He'd be a nice pitcher to add to a rebuild but he's not an ace guy. I'd love to do a trade of Stanton and maybe Bour because they need power and I think he would be a great fit for Fenway for Rodriguez, one of Benintendi, Betts, or Devers, and a lower level high ceiling prospect. and with the way Dombrowski operates and their need to upgrade the power in their lineup, I think that is certainly doable.

    Mish's tweet was in reference to a Nick Cafardo article that said, in part, this:
    From my discussions with Marlins officials — and I don’t know if this jibes with new baseball ops guru Derek Jeter — they would want an outfielder to replace Stanton and most likely it would be Andrew Benintendi. They would want a major league-ready, controllable pitcher (Drew Pomeranz or Eduardo Rodriguez). They would want another young pitching prospect (Jalen Beeks?).
    Benintendi, Rodriguez, and a guy like Beeks for stanton alone, even if we have to eat a little bit of money, would be an incredible return relative to what would be expected with Stanton's contract.

    Then just start dealing parts and getting as much young talent as possible. I would prefer Devers but if you can get Benintendi AND a solid starter like Rodriguez that would be a great haul.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Then, if you find a way to get Vlad Jr and one of their better starters from the jays for Ozuna..... you'd have a really nice future without even trading Bour, Ziegler and/or Tazawa (if you eat their money), maybe Straily if you can get a good deal, and maybe even JT if you get a huge return, plus you'd still have guys like Prado and Dee.... that's a really nice start and you can do that by saving money. I'd even think you can get a fairly solid prospect for Dietrich too if you wanted.

    Keep Yelich and you have a lineup including Vlad Jr., Yelich, Benintendi, JT if we keep him, Anderson, and whatever you get for the other guys and a rotation including Rodriguez, Urena, Straily if we keep him, Peters as a solid back end of the rotation guy, Conley (hopefully he can bounce back), and prospects like Richards, Garrett, a guy like Reid-Foley, Merandy Gonzalez, Rogers. That's not a bad start at all, and then you have a few years to invest heavily in the draft and IFA. This is certainly capable of a relatively quick rebuild (that being 2-3 years).


    And to continue my tangent, if we do go full rebuild i want us to capitalize on some of our young, cost controlled bullpen arms given the volatility of bullpen arms. I'm talking a guy like Barraclough. Even if its for a prospect, im always in favor of trading a bullpen guy if you can get a guy the team scouts really like in the rotation or lineup. Im all about that even if it doesnt work out in the end. bullpen pieces are the last thing you should worry about in a full rebuild like this.

    And what do you guys think is the value a guy like Bour has? I think we might be overestimating his value. He seems like a DH only kinda guy and hasnt shown he can stay healthy. He does have team control though. Weird situation for him. Very interested to see what his value is, but i think we end up trading him in a package with someone else.

    I would be very ok with Mattingly not being the manager next year.

    If we’re “rebuilding” then let’s rebuild.

    our lineup really was not anything special last year. we had the 11th most runs. the 10th best obp. the 14th best slugging with Stanton and Ozuna. and the 11th best OPS. as many good pieces as this lineup has, it really is not all that close to being anywhere near the level it needs to be to be close to being able to carry our offense post Jose. Granted, we can find guys at SS and 3b, but we would still have holes in literally our entire rotation and multiple fielding positions with no farm system depth at any position. this team needs a complete and utter gut and rebuild.

    Even if we ran it back we would be horrible inefficient in terms of $/Win.

    Spit balling another potential dodgers trade, i think a guy like Urias would be a target people are forgetting. I'd also love to get Austin Barnes back in the organization as our starting C and either trading JT or making him a 1b long term, with the preference being trading him. Barnes is really good and has like 5 more years of team control.

    Maybe Urias, Mitchell White, and Barnes for Stanton? Id be great with that.

    Lol, its called turnkey, but i really wish it was called turkey.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Also, that seems like a really strange job title to put out a classified style ad for. Maybe i just dont know how these things work though.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Btw, the way Yasiel Puig is playing is exactly why you go get him when he could have been had for nothing last August. I know we had 3 OF's already when everyone was healthy, but that was such an obvious buy low move especially considering Stanton was considered to be out for most of the rest of the year anyways and we were still in it at the beginning of september, from what i remember.

    Especially for a rebuilding type team you go get as much talent as you can and figure out what to do later. But alas, Puig will net a really big return this year separately if the Dodgers are able to get Stanton.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Also, it really seems like a foregone conclusion that Stanton is gone going by the way the reports are coming out of the front office now. 90 million payroll and over 30 is already committed to 2 guys in Volquez and Chen who likely arent going to pitch next year. It really is a damn shame, but it's the right thing to do. It is unfair in my opinion, however, that they are going to get crucified by the fanbase down here when trading him is the right move all things considered.

I know we had 3 OF's already when everyone was healthy, but that was such an obvious buy low move especially considering Stanton was considered to be out for most of the rest of the year anyways and we were still in it at the beginning of september, from what i remember.

    Especially for a rebuilding type team you go get as much talent as you can and figure out what to do later. But alas, Puig will net a really big return this year separately if the Dodgers are able to get Stanton.

    Also, it really seems like a foregone conclusion that Stanton is gone going by the way the reports are coming out of the front office now. 90 million payroll and over 30 is already committed to 2 guys in Volquez and Chen who likely arent going to pitch next year. It really is a damn shame, but it's the right thing to do. It is unfair in my opinion, however, that they are going to get crucified by the fanbase down here when trading him is the right move all things considered.
    What sucks more is that they have 29M in the form of Volquez (13) /Ziegler (9) /Tazawa (7) coming off the books after this season, and that they can't eat that for a year in order to keep Stanton.

    that is true too. IF we start at 140 right now though, there is no real way of getting to 90 without dealing him. No one is taking volquez or Chen, so lets not even get into that. Out of Ziegler and Tazawa, that is 16 million (9 and 7), not 13, but realistically no one is taking Tazawa unless we eat at least 4 million, and no one is gonna take on Ziegler's contract unless we eat at the very least like 3-4 million.

    We can get rid of Gordon at 10, Prado is at 13.5 million for next year and 15 the year after, so realistically we would have to eat another 4 or 5 of that for next year. Then we can trade Bour at 3 million or so, Dietrich at 3, Ozuna at 11. It just doesnt make sense to keep Stanton, Yelich, and Realmuto and then completely blow up the rest of the team, nor does stanton want to do that. Plus we have a terrible farm system so we would be mediocre-bad still for at least another 2 years.

    Blowing it up is the right call. If we are gonna eat money for a year, id rather it be in the form of eating money on guys like Ziegler and Tazawa and maximizing the return on them.

    The Loria hangover will be present in ways we cannot even imagine for years to come.

    Which is just ONE reason that the fan base will have every right to be annoyed as fuck over Stanton getting traded months after hitting 59 HR’s.

    Except that its not that easy. That is 29 million. You would have to cut another 21 million to get to their target payroll level, and even doing that isnt easy. Not to mention our remaining team would be flaming poop. Blowing it up is absolutely the right call. When they blow it up and build the team the right way and invest in the right areas, the next 2 years where we stink will be well worth it and we will actually have a consistent winner year in and year out.

    I just dont get the rationale that we should keep this team together when theyve proven for years on end now that it is simply put a straight up mediocre team at the major league level with nothing at the minor league level.

    See, you say we’ll have a consistent winner year in and year out (after 2 down years) but that’s a VERY bold statement.



    My problem with your stance on all of this is you make it sound like a FIRE SALE should be an easy pill to swallow for Marlins fans. Fuck that. It may be the right move (everyone on this forum knows that) but for Marlins fans it’s yet another train wreck that we have to stand on the side of the road and watch.

    You’re being obtuse.
