Mth, how good are the prospects that the Marlins gave up? If they aren't top line prospects, I don't think the trade was THAT bad, since the Marlins definitely needed someone to bridge the 7th and 8th innings along with Almanza. If these were good prospects though, they should've forced Texas to eat most of Urbina's salary.

One of the prospects they gave up was the #1 overall pick in the 2000 draft.

The article above said that the Rangers are paying 1.4 of the 2 million owed to Urbina for this season. The Marlins are only out 600,000.

the three guys they gave up are quality prospects. the two position players are very good hitters and the pitcher is ok. will "the fresh prince" smith hits very very well and should be watched as a future fantasy contributor. he holds the arizona prep school HR record and has done well in the minors.

but in the near term, it could help teixeira owners. i don't know if Tex qualifies for OF yet, but he probably will soon. i think he will start to get more OF starts, since adrian gonzalez is supposed to be a pretty good hitter, but more to the point, an awesome 1st basemen.

adrian gonzalez was actually rated higher than dontrelle willis.

I agree; Florida got screwed... I'm not a big fan of UU.

ANyway, on my team, I have Looper, and picked up Cordero for insurance. If Looper holds his job, I may trade some for some depth elsewhere. I hope he keeps it--he's done well!

Looper better keep his job, because I just aquired him in a trade. I traded awaymy All-Star closer Mike Williams, Dontrelle Willis and Andruw Jones for Todd Helton, Ramon Ortiz and Braden Looper.

If it makes you feel any better, All Star pitcher Mike Williams (God, its hard to say that without laughing) will probably be losing his job after next week also.

Pittsburgh doesn't have anyone to replace Williams. He's going to keep the job by default. He's got 24 saves this year and he saved 46 last year. He's not going to be replaced.
