With the trade, Ricky Nolasco becomes the only Marlin earning more than $1.75MM in 2013.

What makes this statement even worse is that there's a real possibility that they could deal Nolasco.

Well done Mr. Loria. Looking forward to watching you sit back and soak up revenue-sharing money from rest of the league. If there truly is a baseball God, the SEC will find enough to be able to (at least) stick him with the bill for that stadium.

How many more teams can this guy get traded to before people stop getting their hopes up that he'll reach his full potential? I mean yeah, he's a good defensive player, and if he hits like he did in 2011 he's pretty valuable, but offensively he's never come close to matching the potential he showed when he first came up in Atlanta.

I read on mlbtraderumors.com that one of the reasons that the Marlins moved him was Escobar's changing his mind about moving to third base this season.

It could be one of the reasons but it probably didn't matter. The Marlins were already talking about moving him once they got him.
