    Would people please stop treating ramp101 like he knows something special about the Marlins.
    Would you rather we follow your lead and insult him and the city he lives in?

    I specifically insulted his posts as being misleading and FOS. As for the city of Miami, that was slightly in jest, but feel free to have at it with Lexington or Houston. I have my problems with both. Miami is notoriously the Worst Sports City in the nation, besides possibly Atlanta, which is exactly what I said. Their fans are fair-weathered and disloyal. That is a generalization, but a factual one.

    No, they play in North Dade County, just south of the county line, next to Calder Race Track!

    I happen to have alot of knowledge about the marlins and if you think aj burnett would go for anything less than adam dunn would be using no common sense

    luis castillo will probably resign assuming we have a taker for preston wilson...we will then have enough $$ for him

    we would never trade castillo for more pitching...our minors are loaded with prospects better than howington

    the marlins need a lefty bat-no thanks on casey and walker

    anything else to say dansforman?, resident expert on everything

    Trade Dunn this offseason

    We need to TRADE DUNN for an ace this offseason. We have Kearns who is a better ballplayer. Dunn's value is still high, but it will be lower as time goes on. We have capable OF'ers in our farm like Mateo and Pena. Who's with me??

    Only 3 players have EVER had 110 + walks, .950 OPS and 25 HR's at the age of 22 in the history of Baseball.

    We have the 4th

    I think you have a great passion for the Marlins, but undersand this.


    Jim Bowden would not trade Adam Dunn to the Marlins for

    Josh Beckett, and A.J. Burnett.

    HE would not trade him for Bartolo Colon.

    He would not trade him for anyone.

    By the way....

    IF the Marlins had Adam Dunn, they would not trade him to any team for A.J. Burnett.

    The most your going to get is about the same Cleveland garnered for Colon from Montreal.

    I would say

    Todd Walker (to replace departed Free Agent Luis Castillo)
    Wily Mo Pena
    Scott Dunn
    A ball pitcher

    for

    RHP A.J. Burnett

    Would be a good trade for the Marlins to get.

    They are not even going to get Howington or Moseley for Burnett.

    ummmm....try again

    and you are saying the marlins wouldnt get howington or mosely either...yea you would make a great gm

    anything else jrod? most of this board except you and danforsman would back me on this one

    Dunn is a great player...

    but I would rather have an ace. And Kearns is a better all-around player. Dunn will end up with a ton of HR's, but we don't need him as much as we need an ace.

    The amount of time a guy has been here doesn't increase, nor decrease a guys brain power. Heh.

    Take you, for an example.
