Young Starters are staying Marlins

It appears any deal concerning one of the young starters is off the table.

The Blue Jays offered Alex Rios to the Marlins, who desperately need a center fielder, but Toronto was unable to pry away LHP Scott Olsen (their preferred target) or any other member of the game's best young rotation. "They won't break those pitchers up," a rival scout says, "and with the cost of pitching right now, I can't blame them." . . .

Good.

It's too early to trade any of them.  It generally takes about three-years of major league service to really know what you have on your hands.  Taking some time to see who pans out only makes sense to me.  And even some don't, they will still be young and have value on the trade market.
