Now that the Marlins are firmly in "Get Rid of Expensive Veterans with Expiring Contracts" mode, the Diehards are pleased to announce the revival of the annual Marlins Trade Pool.
The rules are simple:
- Pick five Marlins (all players in organization are eligible, including minor-leaguers) who you think could be traded before the July 31st deadline.
- Rank those five players, one to five, in order of most likely to least likely to be traded.
- Points will be awarded based on where the player is in each competitor's list. Number one selections who get traded will get five points, number twos get four and so on down to number five selections receiving one point.
- Whoever has the most points immediately following the trade deadline wins. Prize tbd, but we'll probably send you a gift card to World of Beer or some such place.
