    This comes according to MLBTR. Pretty impressive if you ask me:
    Miami has not only lured "superscout" Jeff McAvoy away from the Rays, but sources tell Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports that the club will add Mike Berger from the Diamondbacks in a vice president role (Twitterlinks.) This makes for a quiet but outstanding off-season, opines Passan, who notes that the organization could look quite different if owner Jeffrey Loria gives new GM Dan Jennings more authority than was afforded predecessor Larry Beinfest.

    Why are the Marlins looking at Sizemore when in that same article the Nats are trying to trade Espinosa?
    I know Espinosa has shown to strikeout a lot but Sizemore also strikeouts just as much, the difference is that Espinosa is a 20-20 player and Sizemore has no where near those type of stats
    BTW Espinosa is younger than Sizemore

    Ill tell you why...
    Espinosa has a guaranteed contract
    Sizemore would be signed to a minor league contract
    I may be wrong but I don't think so

    Very interesting. How'd I miss that?

    Taking a scout from the Rays has to be a good thing. Now steal Friedman. :mischief2

    Getting Freidman would take a lot of money, so that isn't going to happen. He loves Tampa and has turned down jobs with better organizations than the Marlins.

    All good as long as Loria gives them the freedom to do their job. Maybe this is a sign he realizes he's not very good at evaluating talent and making baseball moves.
  9. Maybe, juuuust maybe Loria will also be a little more trustworthy of Jennings over Beinfest because isn't Jennings considered "a Loria guy"?

    This is all irrelevant as long as senor micromanager is the owner.

    More than whoever they are replacing probably.

    Luring respected front office people is a start, but it will take years for these guys to replenish through the draft. I have serious doubts that they will be able to add legitimate players through FA - who would sign here that has a chance to sign elsewhere when they know the history of this ownership group shipping out anyone making above the minimum on short notice?

    Loria guy translates to Loria puppet. Too much history of him NOT letting guys do their job to have me believe it will be any different.

    Loria fired Beinfest because he disagreed with what Loria wanted, but Dan Jennings was onboard with Loria's ideas. So I expect things to get worse, if anything...
