    Thanks. I'll say it again - I'll believe it when I saw it. I'd say there's probably about a 1% chance this happens.

    Chris Dickerson. I don't know how soon he will be back but I don't think GMJ would be up here right away.

    Seeing as you are the head of the GMJ fanclub on these boards Heather, you don't need to say a thing. <Ducks!>

    WHAT?

    Are you kidding me? If this is true, I'll be doing backflips.

    I mean really, I don't think there's a chance in hell the Cubs will do this trade.

    I'm out of that but I can offer you some pepper and ginger if you can make something out of those two things, LOL

    Back on topic now....I'm still on board with no thank you to this trade. :

    Wonder if Price could help Marmol cut back on the BBs?. He's the kind of power arm I'd like to have, but not at the full-price mentioned.

    Just saw it was on bleacher report. There's a 0% chance this is true.

    OMG.... I'd go nuts.

    Guy is a STUD (Marmol). Heisey is not gonna turn into much. He's Chris Denorfia with better size.

    That said, I'll guarantee you it doesn't happen.

    I think Heisey is more like Tracy Jones without the cocky attitude.

    Bleacher Report is so, so bad.

    I don't even read articles on BR. That's how false and Madden-ish all their fantasy trades are. I thought the report was from MLBTR, and got excited. No way this happens.

    I agree that Marmol is a risk, and like so many relievers, he could turn into a pumpkin in the blink of an eye, especially with his walk rate. But I don't see Heisey ever being much more than a nice fourth outfielder, so I wouldn't mind taking that risk.

    But I am 100% behind your skepticism of trading for relievers. To quote a posters username: Caveat Emptor.
