The MLB winter meetings are wrapping up, and one thing is for sure: the Miami Marlins are in full sell mode.  In a matter of weeks, they have traded Dee Gordon, Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, and are reportedly talking about trading Christian Yelich as well.  For those familiar with baseball, those 4 players were the main young, elite talent on the team.  Like we say in finance, it’s always a good idea to have a plan in place, and I certainly hope the new owners of the Marlins have a plan in place to win some games over the next few years.  Right now, that plan remains to be seen.
