Colorado Rockies: Should they trade for some of the Marlins relievers?
The Miami Marlins are going absolutely nowhere in the NL East, as they have a record of 38-56 and in last place in the division. They also have the worst record in the NL. The main reason they are where their awful starting pitching but their bullpen is drawing some interest from other teams.
According to Joe Frisaro, MLB.com’s reporter for the Marlins, a quartet of their relievers have garnered some interest on the trade market. Some teams that have been linked to the Marlins bullpen are the Cleveland Indians (who have the worst bullpen ERA in all of baseball), Houston Astros (who just optioned their closer Ken Giles to Triple-A Fresno after imploding on Tuesday night and telling his manager A.J. Hinch “f*** you, man” when he removed him), Boston Red Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers.
However, with the Rockies only 3.5 games out of first place in the NL West, the Rockies front office needs to determine whether or not they think they need to trade for a reliever, since many of their current group have not lived up to their expectations.
If you ask me or most fans, I would say yes. Even if the current relievers pick it up and they acquire some relievers, you can never have enough pitching. It’s a good problem to have.
Let’s take a look at the relievers that the Marlins could ship off in the next couple of weeks.
