I’ve got morons running the team I’ve inherited.

Moe Green Loria has said, for better or worse, that the Marlins are NOT going to negotiate an extension for Giancarlo Stanton this season.

Nope. Not gonna do it. Stay the course.

You smart guys do realize that Stanton will be arbitration eligible in 2014, right?

And you smart guys do realize that the best time to lock up a player is BEFORE they are arbitration eligible, right?

(See Longoria, Evan…) (Oh, by the way, even SMALLER market with a team that has SHALLOWER pockets and they SOMEHOW keep all of their stud muffins or trade them for even BETTER stud muffins (as the Rays stole Will Myers for what could be the husk of James Shields…))

So, the ONLY player on the team that can put fannies in the seats (sorry LoMo) and the only player on the team that can sell jerseys and other such rot has basically been told ‘shush you’ by Moe Green.

Take it from me, ‘shush you’ isn’t a positive negotiating tactic.

I’m not saying that Stanton’s going to be traded after this season. But if I had odds, then by gosh I’d put money on that if the odds were right.

And you know WHERE I think Stanton will be moved?

The Mets.


A. Have you SEEN their outfield?

B. Even if my colleague Brad thinks that the Mets should allow their under 25-year old pitchers to throw 147 pitches in 48 degree weather for freedom or liberty or integrity or something or other that flies in the face of science and data and all that, the Mets have some good young pitchers to deal. Also, because I don’t want to see any young pitcher be Bunker’d or Tanana’d or Busby’d or Prior’d. So it’s a sympathetic plea. (HAH!)

B (a). Yes the Marlins have a lot of good young pitchers hanging around. But MORE young pitchers hanging around means you can move some young pitchers to other teams for other things you need – like five or six other players that can actually hit.

C. The Mets, of all teams, would overpay for Stanton. I mean, seriously overpay.

But that may be a pipe dream.

Seriously, Moe Green and the Cast of Idiots…

10 years $150 million, at the least. Stanton is THE FRANCHISE. Maybe $200 million. Sell a freaking painting or two Moe Green. Lock up Stanton forever.

He’s worth it.

Otherwise, you don’t have a major league franchise, you have a glorified rotisserie team.

And in the South Florida market, that’s going to mean that boondoggle of stadium will be empty, for a long, long, time.
