    Marlins option LF Logan Morrison

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...s_mlb&c_id=mlb

    .249/.327/.464/.791, 17 HR, 60 RBI, 5 E, 4 Ast., plays a solid LF, and a good PR boost from all his tweeting.

    Not great numbers in his sophomore year to be sure, but really, does Jeff Loria and this Marlins organization have a clue?

    Logan wasn't excited about the move.. he took to Twitter and voiced his opinion ans said the release of Wes Helms and his optioned down were tied together some how.

    If the Marlins are sour, the Reds should be on him. I'd gladly deal Stubbs for him.

    I would too. LoMo to LF, Sapp/Heisey to CF.

    tougher pitchers, tougher ballpark, fewer fans. I got to think his numbers would get an additional boost playing in the GABP.

    Stubbs? How about Volquez?

    There sure does seem to be a lot of people wanting to trade away Drew Stubbs. I'm just not seeing it. He's got a great glove, speed to burn, some real nice pop in his bat...he's just being miscast as a lead off hitter. No way I want to deal Drew. Just leave Sappelt in left and leading off and Stubbs will be fine.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Who hits 4th and 5th and what positions do they play? I don't think this team can win with more than 1 of Stubbs, Heisey and Sappelt in the line-up regularly unless they get a clean-up hitter to play Catcher or 3B. That ain't happening.

    Why would the Marlins do that?

    Agree. This is where we have a clear redundancy, and I think the guy has to play CF. I see Heisey as an ideal 4th OF. Sappelt or Stubbs will probably emerge as the starter. But it makes no sense to keep all three of these.

    And Phipps may now have to be considered part of the picture too.

    Sappelt is the best fit at the top of the order, Heisey is the best bench player, Stubbs would bring the most in trade. No brainer IMO.

    That's how I'd read it, too, though I'd like to see a bit more of Sappelt before fully endorsing this conclusion.

    I don't think people are wanting to get rid of Stubbs, they just see an opportunity to acquire Logan Morrison. As much as I like Drew Stubbs I would rather have Logan Morrison. You have to give up something good to get something good. Just because you trade a guy doesn't mean you are giving up on him.
