    If they can get rid of A-Rod I'd be fine with it. But I have no idea how you keep thinking trading our best player and best hitter by far just to get rid of A-Rod helps this team now or in the future.

    No I read it, the point was getting rid of A-Rod is fine, but trading Cano and getting no value in return is a poor way to run an organization. That offense we saw in the playoffs would be our offense for 162 games

    Dont get me wrong, i like Cano but i can see either they overpaying for him or he walking away. I like Nova as well but its all about getting rid of Arod and 5 more years at 114 million. He probably cant DH when he is 40. Hell, they didnt think he could do it in the playoffs. What makes you think having his sorry ***** on this team will be a benefit at all? Pipe dreams.

    I wonder how the team will be in 2-3 years from now......
    Ok fine, let's trade A-rod and Cano!

    Oh wait, who in their right mind is going to take the player you just described. You think A-rod will somehow be better on another team? He'll be the same. We have the highest payroll in the league, and are able to pay A-rod's contract. NO ONE ELSE IS GOING TO TAKE THAT CONTRACT. Talk about pipe dream.

    Enough with trading A-rod, it is never going to happen. And if it did, we would be covering almost all of his contract, so there would be absolutely no point.

    Miamis payroll abligation for 2012 = 101k. Teams can absorb that salary if they wanted to. To say because the Yanks have the highest payroll doesnt mean they are the only ones who can afford it. Ask the Angels, Phillies, Cubs and Dodgers.

    Why the closed mind? If the Sux can make the Dodgers eat all of crawfords and becketts salary just to get Agon, why do we need to eat all of Arod? I dont remember Crawford being a superstar last year. How did that work? Well Agon was one of the best 1st baseman and fits their fan base.....do we have someone like that???? Hum.....

    And if people can decide to add crazy trade ideas to this forum, why not this one?

    yeah i know i think it is because i like my trade more. Arod & Cano to the Dodgers for Ramirez/Ethier & Lee. Reyes is too injury prone for me

    Tex
    Grandy
    Youkalis
    DH

    Very good. Add Carlos Lee for your DH. Although i dont see Reyes and Buerlhe, you gotta ask for more. I can only see Buerlhe and a position player prospect.

    After the trade, Miami launches the party ala Heat. A-Rod talks "not 1, not 2, not 3......"

    The Texas Rangers are not willing to trade either Elvis Andrus or Jurickson Profar for Justin Upton, leaving the Tampa Bay Rays as the favorites to land the Arizona Diamondbacks star right fielder, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com.
