    Marlins Cut Jacob Turner

It's quite a fall from grace for the 23-year-old, who was once considered a top prospect during his days as a Tigers farmhand and was a key piece in the Anibal Sanchez deal. Surely someone will take a chance on him, but his career has been a disappointment thus far.

    Why would a team that is not going to make the post season cut a 23 year old talented pitcher? I would love if he came back to Detroit.

    May have been DFA'd because he's out of minor league options. He will likely get claimed by one of the MLB bottom dwellers.

    To my point earlier, that's another trade the DD masterfully pulled off. Sold the Marlins on Turner and got Sanchez/Infante.

    If he doesn't get claimed by a bottom feeder I agree with Ahoda, I would definitely like having him back here. Absolute worst case scenario he's organizational depth.

    Wouldn't it be great if he went unclaimed? He's got half decent numbers...I'd put a claim on him.

    It's amazing that DD can seemingly see the future with our prospects. Who has he traded away that's turned out really good?

    So far the worst I could find was trading Mark Redman for Nate Robertson and Gary Knotts lol. If that's the worst in terms in trades then you have yourself a crafty GM.

    His free agent signings have been less than stellar but no one is perfect nor should he expected to be that.

    Jair Jurrjens was pretty good for awhile and Renteria was horrendous

    I was impressed with Turner against the Braves earlier this season. He gave up 2 ER on 4 H in 5.0 IP and it seemed like he had plenty left in the tank but they took him out anyway. He had a disastrous outing Sunday and that is what got him the dfa. I actually think he has more potential than to be just depth but then again it is based on small sample sizes even though he was in our division.

    I remember a lot of you were mad that we traded him. Jack and I said it was a good trade.

    Yeah, I just patted my own back there.

    I thought it was a great trade from day 1. My back is ready for some patting.

    Who said it was bad? http://forums.prosportsdaily.com/sho...d-Omar-infante

    Seems like everyone thought it was a good trade at the time.

    Yup, you right. Remembered it differently.

    In an amazing turn of hilarity. Brad Penny looks to be getting called up to replace Turner in the rotation.

    hahahaahahaah

    No man could make this forum more hilarious than he.

    Honestly its even mind blowing that the trade is already 2 years old. They really weren't kidding when they said that time moves faster the older you get.
