I'm guessing the Marlins would only want prospects or major leaguers making the minimum.. I just doubt they have any interest whatsoever in Bailey or Stubbs .. The Marlins would have to flip them for more prospects. That's what the Marlins did with Escobar. Got him from Toronto, and then flipped him for a prospect.
I even think Chapman's salary would be a sticking point.
They'd be interested in Mez, Hamilton and the Reds' minor league pitching prospects is my guess.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
