San Diego Padres send:
Orlando Cabrera (3.0 gold stars), $6,000,000
Darren Dreifort ( 3.0 gold stars), $11,000,000

NOTE: I edited this post to reflect Dreifort's new rating (it was 3.5) and I had incorrectly reported his salary at $11,500,000.

To the Florida Marlins for
SP Matt Riley (3.0 blue stars), Minor League Contract
Rocco Baldelli (5.0 blue stars), $300,000
Wilson Betemit (4.5 blue stars), $320,000

what&#39;s the problem? a 3.5 and a 3.0 for 3 prospects?

mass amount of payroll be taken on dreifort isn&#39;t a 3.5 hes a 3.0 hes older and injury prone. Baldelli is almost ready and is beter than cabrera. Betemit is gonna be really good.

Orlando Cabrera plays a much harder position than Baldelli. They have similar potential, and Rocco may be ready soon, but Cabrera is ready now.

Dreifort carries a high price tag, yes. But he is a quality pitcher despite that, and 31 is definately not old. My mistake reporting him as a 3.5, he WAS a 3.5 at the beginning, and I neglected to go back and check. You&#39;ll notice I also misquoted his salary (11.5 mil it really should be 11 mil). I will fix that after I post this.

Getting prospects is always a risk. Betemit is a 4.5 level prospect, but this is the classic prospect - for - veteran trade. I gave up 2 proven guys, and got 3 prospects.

I believe this trade is fair, I really do. Yes, I am getting younger. Yes, I am getting cheaper. But Cabrera and Dreifort are quality players who will help Florida right now.

I confirm, I don&#39;t see anything wrong with this trade beside the payroll.
