Blockbuster Trade!

leave a comment »

The first blockbuster trade of the season was approved today as the Florida Marlins traded the #2 pick in the draft to San Diego for Kevin Youklis and San Diego’s 1st round pick.

With acquiring Youkilis, the Marlins have flexibility in the corner infield positions.  This allows them to draft with one of their 3 picks either a top of the line 3rd baseman or 1st baseman for 3 years.

San Diego on the other hand moved up 9 spots in the 1st round and is more than likely going to come away with either Albert Pujols or Hanley Ramirez.

Look for Florida to package a few picks together to acquire another 1st  or 2nd round pick.  She currently has SD 1st, Flo 2nd, Flo 3rd, MIN 3rd, FL 4th, FL 5th and now only 3 selections to make.
