07:20 AM ET 07.03 | For a team that has in the past been so aggressive in trade talks, the Marlins may have waited too long on Ricky Nolasco. Many in the industry expected Nolasco to be the first starting pitcher traded. Instead, the Cubs jumped the market Tuesday, sending righty Scott Feldman to the Orioles. Granted, the Marlins didn't want necessarily want righties Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop, the pitchers whom the Orioles sent to the Cubs. ... Sources say the Marlins are looking for prospects, not players such as Arrieta and Strop, who have struggled in the majors but possess upside. Sources also say the Marlins want their trading partner to absorb most or all of the approximately $5.7 million remaining on Nolasco's contract. Well, now the Fish are stuck.

The Fish are stuck? Yes, given what they want I would say that their collective heads are FIRMLY lodged up their arses...............I would think a Gatorade cooler, a box of baseballs and Bert Blyleven's jock would be adequate compensation for this bozo.

there aren't other pitchers available besides Nolasco. If teams refuse to deal with Loria on Nolasco. Eventually his asking price may come down. It isn't like nolasco has all-star numbers

The Marlins are obviously asking for too much in return for so little.

depends on who wants him . the Marlins(Loria) wants team to take on his contract with him

And why wouldn't The Fish want Arrieta & Strop in return? Together they make a million bucks and have proven they can play at the Big League level (succeed is a different a story - and not necessarily a top priority)...

Strop has Some upside - last 2 years he was damn good. Maybe all he needs is the Pressure Free environment that the Fish have to offer.

Nolasco has one of the lowest runs supports that's why his numbers are so bad!!! He has been a workhorse for the fish!

They want prospects....they want the other team to pick up his salary ....they want...they want...they want....their cake and eat it too...... what a joke .....
