I'm just a little surprised the Marlins firesale is happening now and not after the team has been successful for a year as in the past.
True. The Marlins were fleeced in that trade. Somebody must have put ruffies in the Marlins GM's coffee before filling out the paper work.Quote:
The return on Hanley Ramirez and Randy Choate (a decent reliever this season) was pathetic. Ramirez's last year and a half have been decidedly mediocre, but he still has more upside as a 28-year old than either Eovaldi (who I can't see being better than a decent third man in a rotation) or Scott McGough.
Regarding the Hanley Ramirez trade keep in mind the Dodgers are paying for the rest of his contract so that might have something to do with what the Marlins got in return.
ouch, what an embarrassment yesterday! I meant 16-0, c'mon!
Dunno how many Mets fans are around here, but... we finally won one! Rejoice! 2-11 since the ASB!
...I'll go back to being quiet now.
The Angels got Greinke.
I just got back from a two week trip with no internet. Im catching up on the trades, any big names that got moved?
Just to name a few:
Angels got Zach Greinke from the Brewers
Dodgers got Hanley Ramirez from the Marlins
Tigers got Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante from the Marlins
Pirates got Wandy Rodriguez from the Astros
White Sox got Fransisco Liriano from the Twins
Yankees got Ichiro from the Mariners
I think that's pretty much all of the notable trades so far.
