    At first glance you wonder why the Fish would even consider a trade like that. But if you consider who their owner is, it doesn't become that much of a stretch. But Loria usually gets a little more value than what we'd be proposing. Plus the guys he trades off usually are in for a big pay day.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Fish bait

    I pray the Marlins are contracted. I am so sick and tired of hearing about their crap....or is it carp? Anywho, you can have your damn AJ, Beckett, Andy Fox, 'Juan Gone', and Braden "don't call me Brandon" Pooper. While one corner of a single ventricle of my heart feels bad for 'Marlins fans' for the way Huizenga and Co. pumped and dumped the organization to buy a title, I hate the city of Miami. You deserve Ricky Williams, Jeff Loria, and Rod Strickland. Doesn't Dennis Rodman still live there? That place doesn't deserve a real baseball team, and I feel sorry for the talented guys who are being a) shuffled around like Sorry pieces and b) being forced to sweat their asses off in front of 300 blue-haired carpetbaggers. Please, Bud, if nothing else, promise me that the god-awful state of Florida will not have a baseball team when spring rolls around.

    Listen, don't be so dense. The trade was an idea.

    Before the season? Did you think the Expos could have gotton Colon for anyone not named Vladamir Guerrero or Jose Vidro?
    Probably so but they did.

    So, it always isn't going to take super stars on your roster to make a trade.

    Brandon Phillips is a helk of a player though....

    No arguing about that.

    What we're doing the about is the notion that we can just "trade some bodies for Burnett." Burnett is an ace, he's young, and he's inexpensive -- in short, the type of pitcher all 30 teams want and nearly all can afford, at least until he's eligible for arbitration.

    If the Marlins put out the word, every team will have offers on the table, and they'll be talking about premium guys. The Reds can't just put *an* offer on the table, it needs to be the *best* offer. If I was the Marlins' GM talking about Burnett, I'm not interested in a package of average veterans and second-tier prospects. I've got plenty of those. Put real value on the table or don't bother calling back.

    If the players strike and end the season on the 30th, WILL Castillo be a free agent? I am not so sure. Seems to me that he would lack the service time to qualify.

    AJ Burnett was placed on the 15 day dl with sore elbow and since our season is over there is no need to rush him back...i guess you dont want him anymore

    castillo, and penny

    yea something like that would probably do

    I pray the Marlins are contracted. I am so sick and tired of hearing about their crap....or is it carp?

    first off the marlins play in ft.lauderdale and not miami...why are you so against miami?finally the marlins didnt buy their championship.....$55mil for a world series team isnt like the yankees.....and doesnt every team who has won recently bought their WS? and dont give me this crap about "you can have aj and josh" you know you would want them in a heartbeat.....as for andy fox, he is untouchable

    anyway thats my rant for the day

    He probally dislikes it, because they have so much talent, for such a young team, they already have a WC Title, and the fans continue to show them no support. They get around 5 fans a night, its pitiful.
