Villar Traded to Marlins for LHS Easton Lucas

Recommended Posts

Rich Dubroff is stating that VIllar indeed passed through waivers. Uncertain what that means for the Marlins.

Well I’ll be a monkeys uncle. Write down this day; I was wrong once.

You're wrong.  This isn't the day you were wrong.   You were wrong the other day when you said what happened today wouldn't happen...... ;)

Dumped Villar for nothing.  Alrighty.  I hope they aren't expecting to see me at Camden Yards this year.  

Seems rational.

Roch:  “I’ll pass along comments from executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias later tonight.”

Waiting with bated breath.

Waiting with bated breath.   

The Orioles 2019 draft was positionally top heavy. Acquiring a college starter that signed for a premium at his draft position is at least a flyer.

I guess I don’t understand why we would want Villar next year. I couldn’t care less about losing Villar or what we get for him. Didn’t expect anything. Fine with salary dump no reason to spend 10 mill on him.

This also fits the type Fangraphs pegged as the Marlins after the Gallen-Chisholm challenge trade.

An interesting tidbit from that story - I am guessing Lucas is okay at Trackman.

I like that the Marlins appreciate flash, and sexy tools, and that they’re chasing them in trades, in the draft, and among international free-agents. A rival team source told me this week that Miami seemed much more willing to part with Trackman-friendly pitching than it was with their younger prospects in rookie ball.
