    I’m sure a lot of teams are wondering what Miami sees in Alcantara and Sierra.

    Seems like a piece they put out to make the fans think they are trying but also glad they didn't do the stupid thing and trade 2 Top 25 prospects when it wasn't needed even by the team that traded for the player

    Perhaps the Marlins are just stupid or really valued those prospects higher. Not even just the Blue Jays but you would think a whole bunch of other teams would give up more to land him.

    Its not as simple as well this player is rated as X on BA's top 100 Prospects so he should be worth more.

    Yeah the Marlins were after pitching prospects, and got 3 plus Sierra. If they are high on him and Alcantara then they're likely pretty happy.

    It's arguably better than what they got for Stanton - though I wouldn't be surprised to see them flip Starlin Castro for more prospects.

    Well if that's the case, they're a bunch of morons, then. We have better pitching spects than that return, I for one don't believe that horseshit from Phillips, Vlad and Bichette, lol. They were raked over the coals.

    Phillips is obviously talking nonsense, but our offer could have been built around pitchers that the Marlins didn't rate as highly as the prospects that they got from the Cardinals.

    Was going to post something like this. Them asking for Vlad just has to mean they like Sierra and Alcantara more than Toronto’s non-Vlad prospects. They clearly like those two pieces, and Alcantara especially, more than the industry. They had tunnel vision for pitching, apparently (not sure why) - is it really a stretch to say they weren’t enamoured with Pearson, Zeuch, and SRF?

    Asking for Vlad AND Bichette, in the same deal, is where things get silly, if indeed they did that.

    I bet Blair called my son this morning. He was wearing his new Marlin's hat.
