In response to MadMc1944's comment:
Everybody is available--everybody is available. The question to ask the Marlins is :
"IF you were willing to trade Giancarlo who would the Red Sox have to start the conversation with as far as players? Some of our faithful fans really like Giancarlo--"
The Marlins need to get your top 5 prospects and either Doubrount or Buchholz.
Top 5 prospects: Xander, the next Hanley, Cecchihi, Henry Owens , Matt Barnes and the catching prospect Vazquez. That will open the conversation. If you are not willing to start there don't call us we'll call you if the price goes gown."
Target another Positional Player like Kemp, Ethier, Trumbo, Trout, Tulo, Puig, Cespedes,Jose Abreu, CarGo, or some of the good young Royals.
It's almost like some Big Rich Yankee fans asking so how much would it take to get Xander or Pedroia or Lester or Ue---do you put a price on people you cherish and want to keep. If I have to trade them you will have to pay dearly because they are so important to our family to our Red Sox Nation. They mean a lot to us--"Yes everybody has a price."
Give Choo a similar deal as Jacoby and keep all of our prospects. The guy is more durable and his OBP is 40 points higher than Jacoby as a leadoff hitter. He can also steal some bases and has some pop.
