Marlins Will Trade Gregg

The Marlins and Kevin Gregg are close to breaking up. Gregg has grown frustrated with the Marlins unwillingness to spend money, and isn't afraid to tell the media how he is feeling: "It's an organization that doesn't want to spend money," Gregg told the Miami Herald. One NL executive told me the Marlins view Gregg as a problem and fully intend to trade him this off season. This season, Gregg is 7-8 with a 3.49 ERA and 29 SV, but was recently removed from the closer spot for young flamethrower Matt Lindstrom.

The Rockies are known to be interested in Dan Uggla, and may package a deal with Uggla and Gregg for prospects. The Rockies have the prospects, and will likely receive more by trading Atkins, Holliday, and Fuentes, assuming they trade them. The Mets could also make a trade for him considering they need a closer.
