You know, I agree with this. The Cubs don't seem high on Marshall.

My inclination would be to say Hamilton, because they seemingly need OF help, but since they already gave up Hamilton for less than the price of a Mercedes, I don't think they'd go for him. Would you offer up Bailey or Cueto for Marshall?
First, they didn't give up Hamilton. They agreed to make a pick for the Reds, once that was agreed on, the Reds told them who to pick. They would not tip their cards first, that would not make any sense.
And absolutely not on your trade proposals, any of the three would be bad.
