Dempster, the winningest pitcher in Marlins' history, was dealt to the Reds for outfielder Juan Encarnacion, infielder Wilton Guerrero and minor league left-hander Ryan Snare.

The Marlins then sent Floyd, minor league right-hander Claudio Vargas, Guerrero and cash to Montreal for pitchers Carl Pavano and Graeme Lloyd, infielder Mike Mordecai, minor leaguer Justin Wayne and a player to be named later.

The player to be named has been rumored to be right-handed pitcher Josh Karp, Montreal's No. 1 pick last year out of UCLA. Drafted players can't be traded until a year after they sign and Karp didn't sign until September.

Why did Marlins make the trade ? :confused:

Did they do it to trim the payroll ? Sure sounds like it. :yes:

Well, you're forgetting about Justin Wayne and the player to be named later (who everyone says is going to be Karp)

Wayne was a first-rounder from 2000, that everyone's compared to Mussina. Karp is another young pitcher, their first rounder from 2001.

but yea, it was mostly to trim payroll a little bit. Nobody goes to the games, and I think their GM said something like: "Floyd wants to stay here, and we want to keep him here... but we just can't pay him what he wants, and what he deserves."
