I see him as the 1st or 2nd best Bucco prospect. A single away from the cycle tonight. I think he has star potential, and I think he should be up proving it right now!

Victorino is a winner and he puts the ball in play – 32 walks and only 43 K’s, 19 SB’s, and a solid defender. I think he is a FA at the end of this year, so it’s a big gamble for the Bucs, but the price would be a lot less and he could be just that extra veteran presence that could help down the stretch..

The scouts and even you guys said Andrew McCutchen didn’t have 30 hr per year power as recently as last year. The fact is that what Marte is now, he will likely not be in two-three years. Players grow, adjust, and improve. (or get worse, but I don’t see that in Marte’s case).
Sounds like nothing more than people trying to downgrade his value so they can get him easier in a trade. Anyone having played fantasy baseball for over 20 years like me has heard the same kind of trash talk from other owners trying to get you to trade your best players for as cheap as they can get them.
Also don’t forget all the bums those same scouts gushed on about over the years – Chad Hermanson, Lastings Milledge, Doug Frobel…you could write telephone book sized catalog of all the bums that scouts have been ridiculously wrong about.

I don’t want to trade any of them. Stay firm NH

I feel like a hot Presley, Marte, or Tabata can do what Span does.
