Three More Trades The Miami Marlins Should Make
- Updated: July 6, 2012
I was going to make this post before the Carlos Lee trade and believe me or not, suggest the Marlins go out and get him, but of course stuff came up the last week, so my post get postponed today but I have three more trades to suggest. I will be back to blogging a lot more about the Marlins. Here are the trades that could help them a lot.
1. Miami Acquires Closer Huston Street from Padres in exchange for 2B Noah Perio and RP Dan Jennings - This helps Miami because Heath Bell has been a disappointment to say the least, maybe moving him into the setup role where he was good in the years Trevor Hoffman closed for San Diego could let him regain his stuff and Street is a great closer, especially when he’s in a pitcher’s park. Even at Coors he was decent and he could be an above average closer or even if Bell gets good Street can setup. The Padres would get a good reliever they need and a future second baseman where they need a bit of help and depth.
2. Miami Acquires Catcher Kurt Suzuki from Athletics for 1B Mark Canha- Oakland needs a first baseman and Canha is a decent hitter with power but could be given up by Miami for Suzuki who could split time with a power minded John Buck, where he may be able to hit better with a new team and is better all-around, I like him, especially as a fit for Miami.
3. Miami Acquires Starting Pitcher Zack Greinke from the Brewers for OF Christian Yelich, C JT Realmuto, OF Marcell Ozuna, and RP Mike Dunn - More of a blockbuster, that probably won’t happen but another ace would be good and cost a lot and if they could sign him on. I’d do this trade because out of all the players, Yelich is the only one I’m a firm believer will be an all-star and the rest could be good but are just prospects and Greinke could take over for a struggling Ricky Nolasco.
