    And yet it could be a lot worse. I'm sure the pirates or royals would like to have one of those rings. If the marlins weren't going to win with the players they had, why not made the deals and build up the farm system again? The marlins may have had some bad teams, but more often than not they were competitive within the division using their own young talent. That strategy worked and they should try to get back to that.

    Thank you. I agree 100%. It isn't as if keeping/trading Escobar will make a difference on making the playoffs or not. They will stink either way.

    -The guy is 30 so by the time the Marlins are relevant again, he will be on the downside.
    -The fact that he is affordable for 3 years makes him appealing to ALL teams in need of a SS. Not just those with a big payroll.
    -Personally, I am not huge on Escobar so if they can cash in on the dearth of available SS talent, now is the time.

    With that said, I don't think it would be a bad idea to wait until the deadline. Also, they don't need to give him away. I know they won't get a huge package, but at least a couple good specs.

    Rays make some sense. I think the Cubs do as well.
    #WhyNot?

    People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops
