Yeah, but why trade away a package of younger talent if you don't believe you can sign him? I'm jsut saying, I don't think it'd be worth it to trade Young, Upton, Kaz; or some package like that, when he's arby eligible, and FA eligible in 3-4 years.

i thought the marlins were having a firesale so they could sign both m-cab and willis to multi-year deals...and that seemed like a good reason as they were also trying to save some money as the deal for the new stadium feel through. now they are trying to trade m-cab and willis too...it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. :-/ don't think they are going anywhere...

Well hold on now ...

Willis is abritration eligable I beleive, and I have read that he is due to get around 4 million for next year.
Thats a chunk of change for a team that is selling off everything except the the batboy who puked the milk.
He just got fired.

I could see Willis being moved. I could
The Marlins still have holes and they certainly have enough pitching. :-o

Yoda, if you hit behind Cabrera he could easily score 100 runs.

Maybe the Giants have a few prospects they could give up to get D-train home to the bay.

I see Yoda hitting in front of Cabrera. With his strike zone, he could easily walk 300 times. Cabrera could easily lead the league in RBIs! :-b

The only thing I can think of is that Loria is attempting to tank the team and have them lose potentially 130+ games next year. That way he could cry about how much money he is losing and no one (even less than now) will come to the games. Then he can get the team out of Florida within a year and have some other city buying him a stadium.

This is the only possible explantation. We knew the Marlins had to cut payroll, but they've gotten rid of the ENTIRE TEAM! I mean, this has to be the result of some kind of conspiracy either to expedite the moving process, or to contract the team and have a contraction draft containing all of the best prospects in baseball. There's no other explanation for an attempt to get rid of Cabrera and Willis besides the fact that they are TRYING to lose. It makes absolutely no sense to say you are rebuilding, then dump your best young talent.

As a Marlins fan I'm already beginning to look for a new favorite team, since not only are all my favorite players gone, the whole team will be gone very shortly. Very, very sad time to be a Marlins fan. :-/
