Well, if they got Rhodes, then the Red Sox could get Grabow!

I actually don't like this move for the Marlins, Gaby Hernandez is a decent spec with some good potential, they should have been able to land Arthur Rhodes for less than this.

He went 9-11 in AA last year and is 3-0 in AA.

Arthur Rhodes is 38 and has only pitched 22 IP this year and would be more of a special more than anything.

On paper this is a good trade for both teams

Yeah I agree. Last time Rhodes pitched in the N.L. east, he got lit up.

shall see how it works out gaby will be a 4-5 type pitcher in the big leagues potential for a 3. He isnt special but solid sorta an ian kennedy type imo.

We have alot better in the minors, that said it is a high price. It is nice to see them going for something.
