    To be fair he's not terrible, just perfectly average and not better than any of the guys you mentioned, certainly not with the TTO penalty applied to him. Dusty Baker is such a bad manager.

    Yeah, he's a perfectly cromulent SP4. I just always cringe when managers get 6 strong from the Roarks and Vargases of the world then leave them in with a small lead because they haven't hit 100 pitches.

    How long before Florida trades him? He'll be making 25+ Million going forward for the next 11 years.

    We got money coming off the books and a vacant RF position.

    Chance they try to trade him in the offseason as his salary jumps up $10.5m.

    He's got a full no trade clause though.

    Not normally but as hard as it is to believe, Stanton was apparently reluctant to sign the contract so they gave him everything he wanted.

    If the Marlins go full rebuild he's willing to waive it. It would be nice to see him in a hitters park

    Felix do the DL with bicep tendinitis. It's sad watching him fall apart.
