OK for Buehrle to be upset but he didn’t sacrifice money to join the Marlins. If you want no trade clause, sign somewhere else for less.
Marlins already in PR nightmare so why not trade Giancarlo now? Rebuild the entire farm. Stanton never wanted to stay in Miami.
If Stanton always wanted to head back west, Marlins should try maximizing value now. What can we get from Dodgers, Angels, Padres or Giants?

“Can you believe those [effing] Brewers?” Samson said, not hiding his disgust. “They’re giving away tickets to the last game of the season because they finished over .500. How [effing] stupid is that? Giving away tickets for being ‘average.’ I tell you, we’ll build it up and tear it down year after year if that’s what it takes to win a World Series.”

RT @Deadspin: The Marlins’ megadeal isn’t completely terrible. Sadly for Miami, Jeffrey Loria is.
It’s not a terrible trade for Miami. It’s really not. Their expensive team was poorly constructed, and they chose to blow it up all at once rather than handicap a rebuild with long-term contract. Alvarez or Marisnick may end up being the best player in the deal. They have the money to sign free agents—on their terms, not “we need to get some big names to open a new stadium” terms.
The Marlins have signed Juan Pierre to a 1-year $1.6 million deal. Pierre, one of the main catalysts for the Marlins 2003 championship team, will likely play LF for the Marlins and provide speed at the top of the lineup. JP will turn 36 in August but is coming off a nice season with the Phillies where he batted 307 and stole 37 bases.

Giancarlo Stanton (@Giancarlo818) received two MVP votes, a 7th and and 8th.
