Fish Stripes managing editor Ely Sussman fills in for Danny to prep you for all the trade deadline rumors and activity.

Making the “spot start” on Fish Bites during Danny’s wedding weekend, Ely ties a bow on the 2019 Marlins MLB Draft class (3:00). Top picks JJ Bleday and Kameron Misner both made their first visits to Marlins Park as professional players over the weekend.

On this MLB trade deadline special, we emphasize how important it is for president of baseball operations Michael Hill to get fair value (8:00). Featured Marlins trade chips include Austin Brice (10:30), Starlin Castro (14:35), Jarlin García (19:50), Bryan Holaday (22:20), Trevor Richards (25:20), Miguel Rojas (29:15), Sergio Romo (33:40), Caleb Smith (37:15) and Neil Walker (41:30), with brief mentions of José Ureña, Hector Noesí, Curtis Granderson, Martín Prado and Wei-Yin Chen (46:20).

(Sorry about the audio quality! Some slight technical difficulties. Shouldn’t be an issue on any future episodes.)
