if Gathright gets the CF Job in Florida he won't be a sleeping for very long.

Trading him to the Marlins makes zero sense. Do the D-rays think that they are making a run at it this year or are they going to take a prospect for a prospect? Make some room for him in the OF and let him play.

Agreed - that's why we decided to feature him as a sleeper now, before any deals go down. ;-)

It would be my honor to trade Gathright for a pitching prospect especially some of those in the Marlins organization. Gathright himself is a interesting ball player as he is widely known for his speed and jumping over cars ability :-b (what that has to do with baseball I don't know though) :-? , but most people don't realize he is a lazy defensive player and shows little hustle or love for the game. I personally think that he sucks and would take a prospect for him right now, but several of my Drays brethren like him quite a bit and think he should be allowed to show his stuff this year in Tampa and then moved next offseason for some solid pitching.

If he does land in Florida and starts, he could put up some very nice steal totals. Good guy to have in the sleeper column right now. ;-D

Ditto. From the few games I saw him this season I wasn't overly impressed. The OF is crowded already so why not move him for what you really need?
