While I agree with webbbj I think that other prospects may be more valuable for them. I could see them wanting:
Billy Hamilton (Near MLB ready)
Tony Cingrani - Robert Stephenson - Daniel Corcinco (2 of them are near MLB ready)
Yorman Rodriguez - Henry Rodriguez (Near MLB ready)
Then probably either Cozart, Leake, or Heisey
I mean that's giving up our #1, (#2, #3 or #4), #8, *9 and (#16 or #19) plus a MLB throw in. I would say that wins the deal for them. And honestly if they chose Stephenson I would be okay with the deal because we keep our 2 top pitching prospects that are near MLB ready, but I would ask for a throw in prospect in return.
Giancarlo Stanton - OF
Charlie Lowell - LHP
- FOR -
I think that deal gets done. I am happy with that deal. Soto would've been blocked and Miami needs a 1B. Rodriguez could help will be good in the future like an Omar Infante. Leake comes in right away to help with their staff which will be completely depleted. Stephenson and Lotzkar are their arms for the future to go along with what they got from the Bluejays and Dodgers. Billy Hamilton is their new marketing campaign.
For us LF, RF, 2B, SS, 1B, SP 1-3, CL and bullpen are done and signed for 3-4 years. All you would need in my opinion would be a leadoff guy and you could theoretically go after Victorino for 2 years because of the money saved for Stanton. Watching Stanton and Votto battle it out for MVP would be fun.
