Hanley Ramirez, SS for the Marlins. He's 23 years old for next season (his second), stole 51 (15 CS) bases last year, and here's more info:

BA/OBP:
.292/.353

HR
17

RBI
59

BB
56

K
128

2006 salary: $327,000


My thoughts:

Package Uribe, Vazquez/Garcia, and money to get this guy straight up. He could lead off and do a really good job.

Is this feasible at all?

He seems like a good, young talent that the Sox could think about locking up long term, with as much possible upside as Carl Crawford.

No way. He is pure Marlin, for now. He's good, getting better, and is dirt cheap. They'll move him in three years or so.

Is this feasible at all?The Marlins couldn't accomodate Garcia's salary in their already bloated payroll.

So what happens if the Sox eat a bunch of salary? Look at it as though they're paying Ramirez that much.

You've got to understand how the Marlins work. They develop their own guys. They bring them up and watch them get very good. Then they make a run at the title, of which they've already won two. They then dump players that get too expensive. For the most part, they don't take on big salaries. And they FOR SURE don't move guys that can play, and are cheap. I think they're the best organization in baseball, from the scouting, talent evaluating and developing stand point. They just don't have much money to keep guys around.

The Marlins would never repeat the mistake the Red Sox made.

The Marlins aren't trading him. They aren't going to downgrade their SS position to get starting pitchers they don't need. They might trade Willis to dump salary. And they still have Sanchez, Olsen, Noloasco to name a few. I'm sure they still have a few good prospects they would rather take a shot at than Vazquez or Garcia. I would say there is as much of a chance of Hanley Ramirez coming to the Sox as Barry Bonds.

You might want to go here to see if this trade is acceptable by the Marlins.

That's a bit extreme dude....

Stories from the Sun-Sentinel and Palm Beach Post both confirm that the Marlins are NOT increasing payroll from last season (19.1 million). You can forget about getting any of the young Marlin players unless you want to trade away more prospects.
