Hanley Ramirez traded to the Dodgers, fuck yeah. We'd still have Girardi as manager if it wasn't for him. Can't wait to splurge some more on big name FA's this off season on all the money we're cutting from next year's payroll. Sign a CF, sign a 3B, maybe a LF, maybe a C, we'd be good to go!
Shit, man. I've really questioned what the fuck the Marlins are doing this entire year. They splurge on Reyes/Bell/Buehrle, nearly get Pujols as well, get tons of media attention on their new ballpark and uniforms/logo, and now they expect to sell out that huge place with the shit they're doing now? They were among the biggest buyers in Free Agency, now they've sold the guy who has been their team for years? I know Stanton is the future, but Jesus Christ. I just don't understand how you go from major buyers to major seller in the span of half a season. Their mistake from the beginning was hiring Ozzie, tbh.
Not really a steal considering the Marlins were looking to cut salary and were probably willing to take what they could get. A top pitching prospect who's already pitched in the majors and an additional minor leaguer isn't terrible.
EDIT: With all the HYPE surrounding this team in the off-season the only possibility was underachievement tbh.
Maple Leafs - Raptors - Steelers - Blue Jays - Florida State
LA made out well. Their lineup was definitely lacking production outside of Etiher and Kemp, and Hanley ought to be able to come in and hit presumably 5th, and hopefully helping them out quite a bit. Getting Choate, a rather solid reliever, is good for the Dodgers as well.
