  1. According to ESPN's Buster Olney, there has been a breakdown in the negotiations between the Rockies and Marlins involving a trade of right-hander Ricky Nolasco. Olney says there is a disagreement over which side would pick up what remains of Nolasco's $11.5 million salary for 2013. And that's no surprise. Nolasco has a cool 3.68 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 77/25 K/BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings this season for Miami, but he finished with a 4.48 ERA in 2012 and a 4.67 ERA in 2011. The Giants, Dodgers and Padres are also thought to have some degree of trade interest. Related: Rockies Source: Buster Olney on Twitter
  2. According to Craig Mish of Sirius XM, the Marlins have signed free agent outfielder Juan Pierre. Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The 35-year-old outfielder hit .307/.351/.371 with 37 stolen bases for the Phillies in 2012. He previously played with the Marlins from 2003-2005, and will likely become their everyday left fielder.

  3. Baseball America's Jim Callis reports that the Marlins will not sign first-round pick Andrew Heaney. Heaney, a lefty out of Oklahoma State, was selected ninth overall in last month's Amateur Draft. But the Fish didn't offer anything close to the $2.8 million recommended bonus for that slot, according to Callis. It sounds like bad planning on the part of Marlins management. They've spent big money on other parts of their draft class. Source: Jim Callis on Twitter
  4. Im interested if they are still available. I sent you a message.
  5. The Marlins will likely discuss Adam Lind, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel. "But don't look for an aggressive pursuit," Rodriguez adds. He's speculating here and not reporting, but if a team were to look into taking Lind off Toronto's hands, Miami would be about as good a fit as any. The Fish shipped the disappointing Gaby Sanchez to Triple-A Saturday and now have a massive hole at first, assuming Logan Morrison isn't shifted to the position immediately. Lind is hitting .186/.273/.314 through 132 plate appearances this season and finished with a brutal .251/.295/.439 slash line in 2011. He was sent to the minors Thursday and placed on waivers the next day. He's owed over $10 million through the 2013 season. Related: Marlins Source: Juan C. Rodriguez on Twitter
  6. Is everything going to be complete for the FIU game? Are restaurants and everything else going to be open? I'm trying to get my friends to go... Also, will that giant thing in centerfield start doing its thing if someone hits a HR?
  7. Hanley, Wright, Zimmerman, Chipper, Polanco
  8. At least no significant player has been taken out of the lineup today... Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Ozzie Guillen is managing his final game with the White Sox on Monday night and is expected to traded to the Marlins. The writing has been on the wall for a few weeks now, but it sounds like Guillen's time in Chicago is finally over. Cowley has been told by multiple sources that the White Sox are in "the final stages" of completing a deal to send him to the Marlins. Guillen entered Monday's action with a 677-617 record (.523) over eight seasons as manager with the White Sox, including a World Series title in 2005. Related: Marlins Source: Chicago Sun-Times
  9. With Greinke, we would have two cy young contenders in our rotation, plus one who is not far off from a cy young year (Javier). That would be sick. And I forgot Anibal...
  10. Hit - Hanley Double - Hanley Triple - Coghlan HR - Hanley RBI - Hanley Run Scored - Hanley Stolen Base - Hanley Caught Stealing - Maybin Error - Uggla Win - JJ 1 point
  11. Did Philly score there in the 1st. According to yahoo, it's 1-0 Philly...
  12. Wow that's horrible. Crazy that someone can be there one moment and not the next. Things like this make you appreciate many things a whole lot more.
  13. via rotoworld.com: Marlins selected high school LHP Chad James with the 18th pick in the draft. James has plenty of upside with his low-90s fastball and hard curve. He has a ways to go from a command standpoint, but he was a nice choice at No. 18. On potential alone, he ranked as the top high school lefty in the draft.
  14. Via MLB Network: Dont have exact numbers but he's 6'3" and is a lefty. He had over 100K's in about 60 innings About a 1.8 era He's out of high school They seemed to like the pick and said the Marlins were holding their breathe because they really wanted this guy. Of course they called Josh Johnson by the name of Jonathan so who knows if we should value their opinion...lol
