Dodgers just bought a pennant imo. Hanley's first at bat with LA was a triple and he scored. Third AB he drives in a run with a single. He fits in very nicely with the Dodgers needs- another big bat and a 3B. Detroit should benefit in the short term also with Infante and Sanchez, not so sure about the long term for them tho since Sanchez is a free agent. At least all the ex Marlins ended up in good situations on contenders.
As for the Marlins, some may not realize they had a 90-100 million payroll this yr which has flopped big time - losing record and 12 games out. Perhaps they paniced a little early, but it is hard to find one veteran that has played near his career avg and they had nobody on the All Star team. Maybe they should have looked at firing the hitting coach first. My biggest regret so far is that they havent shed Heath Bell, their $9 million/yr closer who has accounted for at least 11 losses all by himself between blown saves and losses. Id trade him straight up for an ice bucket but there prob would be no takers. I'd say the GM Beinfast's job should be in a little jeopardy also given all the bad moves---buy high, sell low seems to be the current mantra.
Attendance has been fine, tho after these trades that will no doubt change. Uncanny management ability to pi$$ off the fans. However, the team is definitely not moving after building a beautiful new stadium. Thankfully, I have already been to a couple of wins this yr so need to return for awhile.
Marlins fans can only hope that Loria decides to cash in for new ownership but that's not likely any time soon. Been a bizarre yr starting with Ozzie pi$$ing off the locals by talking up Castro and getting off to a terrible start. Best record in baseball in May got them tied for first then followed by the worst record in June. Adding Carlos Lee before the All Star break and now trading away a bunch of starters. A roller coaster only a manic depressive could appreciate.
