Since Miami has become the AAAA farm club of the Yankees....who does everyone hope that we go for next?

Possibilities:

Ozuna
Yelich
Longoria
C. Gonzalez
Moustakas
Hosmer - looks like a Padre maybe
Donaldson
J. D. Martinez

anonymous...

I wouldn't mind Ozuna but will he hit that well without the new Yankee behind him.
Cargo has been a target for years, but has his time gone.
I have no idea really. Thoughts guys?

Abreu would be at the top of my list. We got lots of prospect so just make the deal
Donaldson, J. D. Martinez, Santana
Hosmer and Moose are overrated. Cain might be good if the price is right
Cargo and Longoria over the hill
I doubt the Fish deal their other OF

Then again get me a couple top relievers and see what our homegrown talent can do
We could use another SP. Maybe Lyn comes back at a good cost

I couldn't remember Abreu...but would be a good add. Wouldn't want Cain. They might take a flyer on CarGo. I read somewhere that he had corrected a problem and that's why he was normal the last 2 or 3 months of last season. You always have to worry about the home/away stats for a Rockie though, although it worked pretty good for Holiday.

We should know in about 2 weeks or less. Next week will be full of rumors.

I'd go after donaldson. But why stop there? Get CarGo, too. Maybe Abreu is donaldson can't be had.

I don't want any more DH guys to mess our defense up worse than it is. No Santana, Abreau, or JD Martinez. We already have him in Jose Martinez. This means Donaldson might be our target.

My preference is also not to deal any more with the Marlins. They can go pound sand.

Maybe I missed something, but didn't we have a deal with the Marlins? Wasn't it Stanton, himself, that refused to come to StL?

I'm not sure how this is the Marlin's fault.

gotta wonder how much the other Fish OFs numbers drop when they are no longer in a lineup with Stanton
Brewers looking for offers for Domingo Santana. He put up some good numbers last years and has a lot of control time left

Well Sig, I think they were using us to drive up the price of the guys they want to rip us off for which are Ozuna and the lefty hitting guy. They prolly think we will throw in a couple more starting pitching prospects for one of them. Not me, I walk totally away from their problems.

Agreed Mids they knew a month ago who Stanton would accept. He much as said so after the deal with Yanks.

Miami played Mo and Giants for saps. Thats really BS and I would have no more to do with them

Needs to be a MLB rule that would stop the wasting of time on something like this. In other words, ask the player first. If he says no, move on without all the bs.

Cards are now listed as "favorites" to land Ozuna.

I think we will regret trading the people we do for many years. Marlins scouts are better than ours, that is why they keep coming up with hitters, that and finishing in the bottom of the barrel quite often. But their scouts have always been able to spot talent, unfortunately our guys use metrics so heavily I believe it hurts their ability to do the eye test.

we have more prospects than places to use them. We can deal several and still have deep farm.
We may be over rating them. Only like 3 are in the top 100
I'm happy to deal them for a guy who can hit and field

Guess we can live with the Ozuna trade. Would be nice if he had a couple more years of control, but they had to do something. Cards gave up a lot more for him than the stinking Yankees did for Stanton, but he had the Marlins by the nads.

I'll admit the possibility that I am Robert Porter if you'll admit the possibility I am from KPAX

Ozuna and Martinez are really good friends. This could bode well for keeping him long-term. I like Ozuna much better than is Piscotty. We still haven't done enough to field a competitive team in my opinion.

He likes Yadi too. And the Cardinals. Viewed them as a grinding team that is in it to the end and remains competitive every year. He likes that.

they also took on a contract that could turn really ugly
I think we have a decent of resigning Ozuna if ewe start getting back to the playoffs

Cozart could have been a great pickup cheap as he went. Could have moved DeJong back to third and improved infield D
Oh well I guess there're done with position players

I sure hope they are not finished with the off season acquisitions, cause they haven't done anywhere near enough to be competitive. As of now we will be in the same situation as last year, clawing and clinging to a hope that we can somehow squeak into a wild card spot. It will likely be over a little earlier in the season unless something changes. The offense may be slightly better, but both the starting pitching and bull pen are worse so far. Defense and base running have not improved unless Oquendo can somehow work some magic.
