Trade his ass too.

The Marlins are going to suck for the next two to three years, and there's nothing that can be done now to avoid that. After that, when maybe they might be getting better? Dobbs wont be here. Stanton wont be here. Morrison wont be here. None of those guys want to be a part of this franchise. The only people who want to be a part of this franchise are those who need an opportunity to prove themselves as talent.

This isn't a rebuild. It's a rebirth. The team is the momma and it needs a new fucking daddy because he's a no good piece of shit.

LoMo doesn't have a whole lot of trade value. Stanton could restock the minors and reload for 2 years from now....

Well yeah Lomo doesn't have a ton of value but he has very little value to a last place team as a Marlin for the next two years and arbitrarily zero value considering I guarantee he doesn't want to be here afterwards.

What I'm saying is... Lomo's value is highest right now as a Marlin by virtue of the direction of this franchise.

Stanton's value obviously holds, but the quicker you move him for prospects, the quicker those prospects will be MLB ready. And as in the same case above, Stanton's value as a Marlin is nothing considering there's not a chance in hell he will want to be here. He's already made it clear, he's pissed off.

If they really are going to burn it down, they should trade Stanton now and keep LoMo in the hopes that he stays healthy and hits 25 homeruns next season. Then his value will be much, much higher than it is now.

Mitch Williams and I wholeheartedly agree. Despite a shitty stadium and a tight budget, the Rays still put a competitve team out on the field.

The Rays' stadium is a fucking abomination and their fanbase is sad. Those players deserve better than Tampa.

Cool can we have their team?

Nah fuck it, Jeffrey Loria would go to town on that.

So far this is one of the more interesting offseasons. Tigers upgraded their poor outfield defense today replacing Boesch with Hunter.

Much as I love baseball, I admit to a lot of ignorance. So, please forgive me for this question if it's completely stupid, but...

...doesn't Selig have a say in who buys a team? If Loria ran the Expos into the ground, why would anyone allow him to buy another?

Maybe Loria has incriminating photos of Selig.

I'm pretty sure Loria acquired the Marlins in the same transaction that be sold the Expos. They still existed at the time, so despite the fact that he drove them into the ground it's much more hindsight now. Easier to assess that from here than it was back then, probably.
