You know, I agree with this. The Cubs don't seem high on Marshall. The Reds desperately need a southpaw in the rotation and you've gotta believe that Marshall's value is low right now, at least in the eyes of the Cubs. What could be offered up? 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?
Sorry, but these are some of the worst trade proposals I have ever seen. I wouldn't mind going after Marshall, but I would NEVER offer Hamilton, Bailey, or Cueto for him. I would however, offer them Stubbs, Freel, Gonzalez, Keppinger, or maybe even a post-600 HR Griffey (and his contract).
