They simply don't have any major holes remaining. Your only shot is to offer them a few very good prospects for Arencibia. Would you give up Tapia, Marte and Cecilliani for Arencibia?

Former B'klyn Dodger fan. Mets Maniac since 1962.
Now I know why high priced players demand a no-trade clause in their contracts.....
I think they shipped Hanley because they had plotted this firesale from the first sign it wasn't working. But even if they didn't, they're better off without that malcontent douche.
But I do agree that the Marlins are a joke.
Anyway, those stadiums can be huge boons to the cities they're built in. Asking the community to chip in isn't such a bad deal considering what the stadium does for the economy.
Mark my words, no high profile free agents will EVER sign with the Miami Marlins because they don't believe in having no-trade clauses. Guys want those 7-10 year deals to establish stability not worrying about being shipped out after year one. Say what you want about the Mets but that Marlins organization is more pathetic. Inside I am laughing my butt off because Jose thought he would be in Miami for a while. Ask Jose behind closed doors how he feels right now and I bet he has just a one word response...."BETRAYED". Sometimes the grass isn't always greener on the other side even if the money seems to be.
It's just a bad deal almost always driven by the emotions and passions unique to professional sports rather than sound economic sense. The owners just play us for suckers.

Oh, and to those saying Loria scammed the city, the fault in that story is the simple fact that the stadium was approved back in 2007.
