    Make Trade With Marlins?

    The Florida Marlins have liked Middlebrooks and have been linked to the 3rd man. How about this deal with Florida? Not sure if they would do it but worth a shot:


     


    Marlins Receive:


    Middlebrooks-3b


    Jackie Bradley Jr-CF


    Bryce Brentz-RF


     


    Red Sox receive:


    Andrew Heaney- lefty starting pitching prospect


    CHRISTIAN YELICH- CF (he becomes our CF)

          I don't see any reason to panic. The Sox have been the most successful team in baseball over the past 10 years.

          They currently have the best farm system in all of baseall. They should stay the course.

          It should be obvious to all that 2014 is the Tigers year.

    The Detroit Tigers? Or the Hanshin Tigers?

    The Detroit Tigers were just swept by the Cleveland Indians and lost again last night to the Rangers in the first game of that series. The last game they won was v Boston.

    They may have the greatest hitter in the game but they also have a few warts too.

    Best farm team in baseball. ? You mean on paper?  Boggy is ok ... Who else?....Rather just win games and have bad farm system. Farm systems today are all about the money down the road.Can we keep these kids? Heck no !!! We showcase players for teams that want to spend. Sure we have players with talent just keeping them is something else. What I see is that the sox are a breeding ground for Yankees or any team that spends. We can have all the best we want ,just that we will soon watch them playing for another team.

    So, complaint of the day is that the Sox lose all their young players because they aren't willing to spend to keep them? We just develop them for other teams? Lol, we're really scraping the bottom of the barrel here in terms of whining material.

    Pedroia, Lester, Buchholz, Youkilis are among those in recent years who would beg to differ. Ellsbury spent 6 years here, gave us some very good seasons, and then left for a bigger payday...that hardly makes us the Marlins. (BTW, keep repeating how we should have paid $160 million for him, when he is hitting .265 with a .718 OPS...those posts will be fun to dig up a few years from now.) Same goes for Papelbon. Who else are you talking about?

    Yeah, absolutely, that's what I believe.Two months down four to go, anything can happen from critical injuries to pick-ups before the trade deadline. Especially the ALE that race is wide open.

    It is too early, but clearly, the Tigers are the elite and most balanced team, so far. Barring major injuries, I think they are the favorite this year.

    I disagree.

    But if you're going to give marks for the best team thus far in the AL you would have to give it to Oakland who btw has a better overall and road record than the Tigers.

    But that being said it's still to early to say who is the best and to claim this year belongs to a certain team.

    How many so called experts picked the Sox to go all the way last year in May? I thing Detroit was the fav.

    I didnt say anything about record, TWM. I went into the season believing the Tigers were the overall favorite, and I haven't seen anything to change my mind. They clearly have the best starting rotation in baseball, one of, if not the best lineup and got a decent closer in Nathan. It will come down to pitching and health. I agreed its still too early, and I'm not crowning anyone, it's just my opinion.


     


    They're a great organization, with a good GM and owner, who has waited a long time for a championship. They've been after it for several years and it a small window, that is closing, it's now or never. I wouldn't mind seeing them finally win it, just would prefer to see it with Leyland, at the helm.

    If you want to make a trade with Marlins, they would do it in the winter time.  But now they are only 2 games behind the Braves.  Marlins is going to stay pact until the month of July, and then see where they are in the standing.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


    You're entitled to your opinion.

    Bill Parcells once said you are only as good as your record shows.


    Oakland currently has better pitching than Detroit and why they have a better record than the Tigers.


    http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/team/_/stat/pitching/year/2014/seasontype/2


    I would not pin a team a favorite just based on where recent winners have come from as far as preseason favorites go.


    There are no clear cut favorites I can see, all of the good teams could be knocked from contention with the loss of one player. Health plays a hugh role. Plus we still have the trade deadline coming up. Things can change overnight.


    Just too early imo to make statements like that. 


    I do like Cabrera and I do think he's in a class all by himself. Only two players in the history of the game have won two triple crowns, Rogers Hornsby and Ted Williams.


    Cabrera was on course to win two back to back before his injury last season which is just unheard of.
