The best analysis I’ve seen on the six prospects the Marlins received in their trade for Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Carbera was Kevin Goldstein’s over at Baseball Prospectus. Best case scenario is that Andrew Miller and Cameron Maybin turn out to be the studs everyone expects them to be and Dallas Trahern and Eulogio De La Cruz have solid impacts in the pitching staff at some point in the future.
As far as losing both Willis and Cabrera in one fell sweoop, it’s hard not to be surprised because the Marlins planned on cleaning house. Still, with an $8 million payroll, it’s going to be hard for even the most die hard Marlins fan.
Still, this deal could work out, just two or three years from now. And with the rest of the young talent, the Marlins bear keeping an eye on just to see if one of these potential stars shines earlier then we thought.
