The Marlins and Orioles are discussing trade scenarios, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports (on Twitter). Miami is "knee deep" in trade talks and could complete a blockbuster in the next 24 hours, Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio reports (on Twitter).
The Marlins, who sent Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to Detroit yesterday, have also had teams inquire on Hanley Ramirez, Carlos Lee, Josh Johnson,Ricky Nolasco and Randy Choate. The Orioles are known to be seeking pitching and corner infield help. It wouldn't be surprising to see Baltimore pursue Ramirez or Johnson, since either player would have an impact in 2012 and on next year's team.
I think the buy low potential on Hanley is something many never saw coming. Now is the time to consummate what was always meant to be: Hanley to the Reds for Cody Puckett and Mark Serrano.
Just kidding. Seems funny that this year's team looks like it doesn't have room for Hanley. I'm not sure Cozart's defense doesn't offset Hanley's offense.
