Holy mother of God.
Massive. Surprised a bit by the prospects given the contracts coming back (it's near $150million I think in total), but each one has his warts (perceived flaws, projection hiccups)....
And remember AA saying in September that TDA might get looks at DH and 1B....well, this sounds like it was a big part of this plan.
They both get traded IMO. It'll be d'Arnaud-Mathis.
I think JPA gets flipped (here's hoping my scenario of JPA for Ike Davis turns out haha), but Buck stays for at least April. TDA is probably ready, but it's still nice to let him prove he is our #1 catcher rather than handing it to him.
Also, SN is reporting the deal w/o Marisnick, and only Olney's included him from what I've seen...maybe he's not in there (I can hope right?)
Source: #Marlins will get Jacob Marisnick or Anthony Gose, as well as a catcher -- Arencibia, Wilson or Mathis.
I'm hoping and mildly betting they take Marisnick because he's more "toolsy" than Gose and their new manager will be more familiar with him.
And they can have one of the catchers. Even JP. Wilson or Mathis would be of no consequence.
EDIT: and now that Gregor Chisholm tweet above seems to confirm it is Marisnick. Nice.
