    The Marlins have one player on their roster guaranteed money next year for a total of $1.5M. They have one player with a $1M option and the rest are either arb or pre-arb players.

    Great move for the Dodgers. Nolasco should be solid. Not much to give up, but they were willing to swallow the entire $5M+ remaining. Only Sanchez looks to be of much and even he's on his second turn thru A+, so it still remains to be seen if he becomes anything at all.

      And for the two guys he's likely to replace:

      Capuano - 67 innings, 4.01 ERA, 3.92 FIP and 0.5 WAR (0.6 WAR per 86 innings)
      Fife - 41 innigns, 4.65 ERA, 4.56 FIP and .05 WAR (.1 WAR per 86 innings)

      This is about a one win upgrade for the Dodgers...

      ...which is why I'm worried about what Ned give up.



      It does make it that much less likely that Ted Lilly will appear in another game for LA.
      49 innings, 4.18 ERA, 4.48 FIP, .1 WAR (.3 per 86 innings).
      Is Lilly still in LA or is he down with your 'Topes? I forgot he was even still around at all. Would he go somewhere else? I doubt anyone would trade for him, right?

        He's on rehab I believe.

          Lilly got roughed up the other day for 5 runs in the minors.

            first pitch by Nolasco as a Dodger results in an out.

                  6-0 Bums and Nolasco pitching a 2-hit shutout.

                  Déjà vu.

                    The Yankees are 'reportedly shopping' Phil Hughes

                    I've taken the following rate states for Hughes and divided them by the AL Starter average to get Hughes' rate compared to the league

                    For example:
                    Hughes K's 19.4% hit batters.
                    The average AL starters K's 18.2% of batters
                    19.4/18.2 = 1.07.
                    Hughes K's 7% more batters than the average AL starter

                    K% = 107, BB% = 84, LD%=100, GB% = 67, FB%=143, HR/FB=84, FIP=101, xFIP=107, SIERA=101

                    Hughes' biggest weakness is in giving up home runs.

                    Granted, that's a big weakness.

                    BUT

                    Hughes' rate of home runs per fly ball is below the league average. The reason he gives up so many home runs is because he gives up 43% more flyballs than the average AL starter.

                    Per StatCorner, there are 46% more home runs hit by left-handed batters in Yankee Stadium than in a neutral park.

                    That number's a lot lower in Dodger Stadium where there's "only" 19% more left-handed home runs than in a neutral park. That's a lot higher than I thought, but it'd still be a lot less home runs allowed by Hughes.
                    Here's all of Hughes' fly balls and home runs in Yankee stadium overlayed on Dodgers Stadium

                    *http://katron.org/projects/baseball/hit-location/

                    These locations aren't exact and it doesn't account for changes in wind patterns, atmospheric pressure, etc.

                    But you can see that some of the HR's that Hughes has given up in Yankee Stadium would have been fly outs or near fly outs in Dodger Stadium.


                    I still think the Yankees will ask too much, but Hughes might be successful pitching in LA
