2014 Marlins’ Christmas Wish List

5 of 7

Max Scherzer:

I know, this is not going to happen nor would it make a ton of sense for this team. However, he would bring lots of attention to the club, as well a boat load of excitement. The team’s payroll is still incredibly low, and they have received 16 million dollars in trades from the Yankees and Dodgers. Scherzer would make the Marlins rotation ridiculous, and the team could probably bump the Nationals for the division title. It’s a longshot, but it’s worth dreaming about.
