For some chump-esque minor leaguer. Perhaps one of the more knowledgable minor leagu buffs among us can elaborate if this is anything more than a salary dump.

Villone = Marte but not as good.

The Marlins are pathetic. Lefty relievers come at a premium at the trade deadline on July. Why not just pay him a million and trade him for better stuff. To think, they gave up a couple of good prospects for this guy last deadline. :o:

It's not about making the team better. It's about sticking it to the people of South Florida and their representatives. Watching their off-season, you'd think Loria had just rented a copy of Major League and decided on a new course for the team.

When does Ricky Vaughn start for them?

When does Ricky Vaughn start for them?That's precisely what's going on. Having been rebuffed on a stadium deal, he's sticking it to the fans and building a case for moving the team. If he can get his payroll down to $30M, he'll make money even if nobody shows up because of revenue sharing and network TV money.

If you can't tell, Loria makes me :angry: and :puking:

From Rotoworld:

Marlins acquired LHP Ben Julianel from the Yankees for LHP Ron Villone.
Pathetic. Anyone who wanted Julianel could have taken him in last week's Rule 5 draft. The 26-year-old had a 3.90 ERA and a 106/50 K/BB ratio in 87 2/3 IP for Double-A Trenton last season. The Marlins are now in line to make a big profit next season, so they certainly could have held on to Villone and waited for his market value to go back up. Every other trade GM Larry Beinfest has made has been defensible, but this is just ridiculous. Even worse was that the Marlins didn't offer arbitation to Todd Jones because they didn't want the draft picks. Bud Selig should have stepped in by now.
