    What do you think it would cost to get Ruggiano from the Marlins?

    I know he's on the wrong side of 30, but I'm convinced he's a late bloomer whose development was blocked by the Rays' incredibly deep system.

    In 2012, only 20 players in all of MLB with more than 300 plate appearances had a better Rc/27.

    He's clearly comfortable hitting at GAB.

    He could play CF and would allow Choo to shift over to LF. When Ludwick comes back he gives us depth. He'll push Ludwick and allow Choo or Bruce to take nights off against lefties without the team missing a beat.

    By the time the Marlins are any good, he'll be closer to 40 than 30. Seems like a trade candidate to me.

    So do you want him, and how much would you pay to get him?
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
