MLB Trade Rumors: Olsen Conviction Could Lead To Trade
Marlins president David Samson indicated yesterday that starter Scott Olsen would not be welcome on the team if convicted of charges of DUI and resisting arrest. Apparently the felony designation is the tipping point for Samson, who seemingly would not boot Dontrelle Willis off the team if convicted of only a DUI.
To be fair, Willis has had just the one incident while Olsen has had at least six. Many teams could match up if the Marlins decide to trade Olsen this winter - the Diamondbacks, Phillies, Royals, and Devil Rays come to mind. The Fish probably still need a center fielder.
To be honest, I don't know why you'd want him on your team. I'm surprised the Marlins already haven't given him the boot. I know if I was a GM, I probably wouldn't want him for his track record.
