Urbina traded to Marlins

This trade makes no sense to me. Why would the Marlins want Urbina unless they are going to deal Looper ? I have a hunch Looper
will go to a team that needs a closer and has a player/prospect
the Marlins want.

Looper still sucks. Benitez should be better outside of New York.

Looper, Braden (RP-Fla) 16 saves 33 Ks 2.37 ERA 1.32 WHIP
Urbina, Ugueth (RP-Tex) 26 41 4.19 1.32

Urbina has four blown saves and has a record of 0-4; Looper has three blown saves and a record of 4-2.

Can you explain why he sucks? The saves difference is due to the team; when given the ball in a save situation, Looper does better.

Looper is 16 for 19. %84 percent save conversion
Urbina is 26 for 30. %87 percent save conversion + experience

anyhow I think Looper will keep his job. He's done a great job so far in my opinion.

To say Looper sucks is wrong. Look at the last months stats.
Looper 1 win, 5 saves, era 1.93 whip 1.50
Urbina 0 wins, 8 saves, era 6.93 whip 1.65

Urbinas only advantage is saves, duh ! Rangers don't have a sp
that can finish a beer, much less a game. Like I said this makes
no sense to me, I think Looper is next to be traded. The Marlins
don't need a setup man, much less another closer.

I have no idea where Looper might go- it just does not make sense
for him to stay, do you agree ?

I agree; they don't need another setup guy, nor a closer. Why would they give up good prospects to rent Urbina? I don't understand it at all, unless it's just to show Central Florida that they're trying to win.

How's this guy that'll be taking over for Urbina? He worth a pickup in a 10 team h2h league?
