Seriously, who allowed some of these people on the chat today? Seriously, trade H. Ram? He’s under contract for another 4 years.

$4-8M for Thome? Seems high. I think he’s willing to sign for $1.5M again if someone can give him the confidence he’ll get AB’s. It’s not like he did anything this year he didn’t do last year to inflate his value…

When he signed this year he said he did because he wanted AB’s. Does that change next year? Is the DH market much different? Is his value much higher? No, no, no.

Why didn’t the tigers do it for even 3M this year?

Having seen Adeiny Hechevarria play many a times this summer, I will say this…He has made a fantastic general adjustment to America, new people, and a new language. His ceiling though is very high, which is why I wouldn’t worry. I’m not worrying and pretty much his best skill is his defense which IS Major League Ready, but his bat is coming. He has a tendency to not hit pitches inside and wait for the low outside pitch which is what he almost always hits. He has good platae coverage but again, he is raw. He is in AA but I’d say he still is a little bit away from the Majors simply because he needs to get more AB’s because again, he is very raw when it comes to hitting. I have a lot of video and sometime, I’m going to review them and send them to Mike, but just from seeing him a ton this summer, theres nothing that tells me that he is a bust, in fact, I would say he has perenial all-star potential. He is also a good buddy of mine and an awesome guy!

There’s a difference between the two.
A.) Hanley is a top 5 player, Uggla is not
B.) Uggla is under contract via arbitration, Hanley is under contract via an extension past his arbitration years

Fair, but I can’t see him stopping 10 short of 600 if he still feels productive…

Rumors from who? Red Sox fans? Tigers fans?

It’s been stated time and time again, Marlins are building their new stadium. They need a proven guy to be the face of their franchise in their new move. Not to mention MLB called them out about not spending enough money and just pocketing revenue sharing, I’d love to see them try and explain trading Hanley when he’s already signed.

TwinsVet

HA! I like that logic :-)

And when I think about it, I think you’re pretty spot-on (at least, the part
about the conditions he would or would not come back on – I won’t jinx my
boys by predicting he doesn’t come back!).

I trust common sense on 09/22/10 more than a rumor from almost a year ago.

If the Marlins trade Hanley, then they better be returning all their revenue sharing too.
