With your depth at 3B I think dealing Marte is the right decision, I am just not sure now (before he comes up) is the right time, or if Cain is the right guy.
Oliver Perez has 1 year in which his bb/9 is under 4.5
Cain hasn't yet went over that line since he came into the majors. Yes, I was one of the believers 2 years ago. But to compare Cain to Ollie is absurd.
