That's an awful deal for both teams. Urbina isn't worth a top prospect like Gonzalez, IMO, while the Rangers need an SP...not Gonzalez, as good a prospect as he is. The Marlins would have been better off keeping Gonzalez to play in the outfield, or acquiring an SP for him.

are you kidding? the market for young OF's is bigger than the market for a closer. dont forget, the trade deadline isnt till the end of the month, and a guy like Gonzalez doesnt even need to be turned into pitching by then, the rangers have thrown it in.
