Mega-Trade

Another arm-chair GM's thoughts!

Alright everyone, try this mega-trade proposal. Zito, Harden, Chavez, Crosby, DJ, and Daric Barton to the Marlins for Hanley Ramirez, Miguel Cabrera, Dontrelle Willis, and a player to be named later. Zito is gone, so let's get a major league player instead of draft picks; Harden, let someone else be teased by his potential, puls he is young enough for the Marlins to wait on; Chavez gives the Marlins a 3Bman until they trade him, same with Crosby at SS, although he is young enough for the Marlins to keep; DJ and Daric Barton add value to the deal, and Swisher at 1B makes both irrelevant as everyday players for the A's. Swish is the guy to keep for 10 years; The three we get back replace 3 starters we traded, we fet younger, and better. Cabrera may not be a golden glover, but his offense is more consistent and productive than Chavez'. Hanley Ramirez is becoming one of the best players in the game. And the local stud, Dontrellle more than replaces Zito and puts butts in seats. A player to be named later from the Marlins trades of both Chavez and Zito to keep their payroll down, and team packed with great prospects. I'd even offer to keep paying our ex-players, the Marlins pay their ex-players, to sweeten the deal further!
