Do the Marlins not believe in BABIP regression?
When a pitcher has a high BABIP, there might not be significant regression (think Glendon Rusch).
I don't really get why you'd DFA him. Even if you want to trade him, doesn't this reduce your leverage significantly?
Turner and Flynn were both acquired in the Anibal Sanchez trade. A rare failure by the Marlins front office?
but it seems like they're pretty awful at trading major league talent for prospects
he's looking for his 2nd ring with the Marlins, having also gotten one in 2003 (when he beat the Yankees twice in the World Series).
Woo! Back in the big leagues!
Who was it that used to claim that Nate Schierholtz was every bit as valuable as Hunter Pence? MGL?
The Giants acquired a guy with a 109 OPS+. For the privilege of doing this, they traded a guy a year younger with a 115 OPS+ who plays better defense. In addition, they had to throw in their #2 prospect.
That is an awful, awful deal.
They traded for a guy who's played worse than the guy they traded. In addition, the guy they traded for makes more money. In addition, they threw in prospects.
This is a terrible, terrible trade.
Before we pile on too heavily (was one of them me?)
On one hand, Turner is still young, has top prospect pedigree, has better peripherals than performance, and was solid as recently as last year. It looks like he is healthy as his velocity has actually been better this year.
On the other hand, FIP is 4.26 over the last two years and that would work out to a 90 ERA+. That's nothing special.
I can't remember ... who were the Giants gonna give the Cubs for Soriano before he nixed the trade?
