Hello baseball fans, and welcome to another edition of FishStripes’ Fish Bites Podcast, where we explore the latest Marlins news and rumors.
Miami wanted to upgrade its starting rotation and did so by acquiring Colin Rea and Andrew Cashner from the Padres on Friday morning.
Scott, Thomas Bennett and John Butterworth break down the deal and discuss how valuable Cashner and Rea will be for the Marlins this season.
MLB.com’s Jim Callis (@jimcallismlb) joins the show to discuss the state of Miami’s farm system both before and after the club’s trade with San Diego, and Sporting News’ Ryan Fagan (@RyanFagan) joins us to discuss Ichiro Suzuki’s quest for 3,000 hits.
The guys break down each NL East team’s approach to the non-waiver trade deadline and react to each piece the Marlins lost in their trade with the Padres.
