ESPN’s Peter Gammons just reported on Sportscenter that the Marlins have inquired about what it would take to get Adrian Gonzalez and Heath Bell.
I am whatever on Bell, but I love the idea of trading for an excellent, young, reasonably priced star first baseman.
Have to think that with the way the Padres seem to be building their farm in Brian Giles’ image, the first guy they would look at is Logan Morrison, who is third in all of baseball in BB% (behind a couple of Friars).
Does Morrison and West get it done? Do you throw in a bullpen arm like Tucker? Is that trade worth it for the Marlins.
You have to assume this means Cantu moves to third, effectively replacing Bonifacio with Gonzalez. That might be the biggest upgrade any team could make at the deadline.
Very interesting, and good to hear they aren’t standing pat, though it wouldn’t be surprising to see an Uggla or Ross move as well so they can offset salary and keep Bonifacio in the lineup.
