There are a couple reasons why these types of posts don't get a ton of attention.

 

1. To a large extent trades rarely happen, so predicting any trade - even a likely one - is pointless

2. A Castro trade is less likely than many, many other trades

3. Most people do not want to trade Castro at all

4. Trades happen within divisions, sure, but very rarely do huge trades like this happen within divisions, read: Cards and Pirates not likely.

5. The Marlins probably wouldn't want Castro's contract (even though its relatively reasonable)

6. There are some major, major packages up there, the bigger the names the increasingly less likely any trade will ever include that player (nowadays)

 

On the other hand, there hasn't been a ton of traffic on the MB recently and I enjoy lots of traffic, so keep em coming.

Man that's a huge haul for Castro. don' tknow if we'd have room on the 40 man roster for that many players.

Not sure I agree with this.  

 

Marlins are going to need to spend up and try to win eventually, if only to keep the Commish and the Union off their backs (again).  In that regard, locking up a cost controlled cornerstone like Castro could be an attractive option.  

 

Especially if they had, say, a young star that they made very angry by trading away nearly all of the team that they had told him they were committed to winning with thereby making it somewhat more difficult to sign said player to any sort of a extension when he hits arbitration/free agency in the near future.

Damn, that's almost the same level as the Saints trading all their draft picks for Ricky Williams.

Seems like the Marlins like to spend money one year, then obliterate it before it really has a chance to get off the ground (last year) or when they recently were really good (the year they won the WS).  I really don't get their logic there.

I hate to say this, but the chances we trade Castro are miniscule to none and the chances that you predict what Castro is traded for is even less.

Starlin Castro + Nate Schierholtz to Royals

 

#1. SP Kyle Zimmer (AA)

#2. SP Yordano Ventura (AAA)

#11. SP Kyle Smith (A+)

#17. LHRP Donnie Joesph (AAA)

#18. 2B Christian Colon (AAA)

 

Escobar moves to 2B, Royals have a cost-controlled middle infield for 5+ years and a platoon in RF that works in Schierholtz/Lough for the next year and a half.
