  1. what kind of trade value does he have out there? Red Sox? What could we realistically take from them that would be useful to us right now?
  2. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/florida-marlins/fl-miami-marlins-reyes-bell-1217-20111216,0,6885485.story so Reyes has time to text back and forth with Boni, but apparently he and Hanley don't have time to connect. Not a good sign, IMO. Apparently Boni & Reyes are close. Hanley, not so much.
  3. joecapMARLINS joe capozzi Growing buzz in lobby that #Marlins will emerge as winner Albert Pujols derby. Nothing final yet but fish r favorites, accd 2 lobby walkers 1 minute ago LONG LIVE LOBBY WALKERS! that's what Tiger Woods said!
  4. let's play a game: name the best pitcher who is tradable that we'd get for Hanley go!
  5. now he is a jokester and is very tongue in cheek on Twitter, so who knows if he is being truthful here... but he seems earnest about this. Those may not be the EXACT uniforms/logo but I heard red/yellow for the color scheme. about 8 hours ago via Echofon 4 those of u cracking on the Marlins teal. Heard a rumor that these will be our new unis/colors starting in 2012 http://plixi.com/p/69231580 http://twitter.com/LoMoMarlins?from_source=onebox
  6. they probably locked season ticket holders into long contracts during the Lebron years
  7. The Marlin's biggest revenue problem has been that, by the terms of the stadium lease, the stadium owner made more money from fan attendance than did the Marlins. The new stadium solves that problem. It remains to be seen whether the team and the management will draw well from the South Florida fan base in this or any other economy. The Heat are not selling out. don't let facts stand in the way of your story
  8. http://mlbbuzz.yardbarker.com/blog/mlbbuzz/sources_marlins_nolasco_reach_impasse_in_contract_talks/3816114 « Back to blog Sources: Marlins, Nolasco reach impasse in contract talks 17 minutes ago by JonPaulMorosi The Florida Marlins and right-hander Ricky Nolasco have arrived at a stalemate in negotiations for a long-term contract, major-league sources told FOXSports.com. The impasse sets up a number of possibilities for Nolasco, who was 14-9 with a 4.51 ERA in 26 starts this year: -- The Marlins and Nolasco agree on a one-year deal. Nolasco, 28, is still in his salary-arbitration years, so the Marlins could simply allow that process to play out and retain his rights through 2012. He’s due to receive a raise on the $3.8 million he earned this year. -- The sides compromise and sign a long-term pact. There is still plenty of time for the parties to reach agreement. They have been exchanging three-year proposals, sources say. -- The Marlins trade Nolasco. Florida could deal Nolasco and still have a formidable five-man rotation: Josh Johnson, Anibal Sanchez, Javier Vazquez, Chris Volstad and Alex Sanabia, who had a 3.73 ERA in 15 games (12 starts) as a rookie this year. Clubs have been calling the Marlins in recent days to express interest in Nolasco, sources said. While it’s not clear which teams have contacted the Marlins, it’s well-established that the New York Yankees, Milwaukee Brewers and Washington Nationals have been active in the trade market for starting pitchers. -- Jon Paul Morosi and Ken Rosenthal
  9. I thought this thread was going to be about Stanton for Manny. Should've been.
  10. here is Jayson Stark on the Sedano Show, says the Marlins get $85-100M from revenue sharing and TV/radio deals before they even sell 1 ticket http://miamiherald.typepad.com/sedano-says/2010/01/marlins-espns-stark-breaks-down-the-revenue-share-numbers.html kind of damning and you see why other tax paying owners are pissed
  11. from Peter Gammons on Twitter pgammo Peter Gammons: memo to Josh Johnson:get an agent who won't embarrass you for his pitiable self-promotion about 4 hours ago http://twitter.com/s...find_on_twitter
  12. I lose respect for Sosnick every time I hear his words.
  13. from Peter Gammons on Twitter: @pgammo Tis the season when agents try to spin news. So here is reality:Josh Johnson isn't going anywhere. 2010 @ $4M is good business for Phish
  14. any thoughts on who we could get back? http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/10353396/Wednesday%27s-buzz-from-the-GM-meetings Interest in Uggla ... at third base — 10:51 a.m. The two teams showing the most interest in Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla would move him to third base. The Giants and Orioles are the clubs in strongest pursuit of Uggla, according to major-league sources. The Red Sox also have inquired, envisioning Uggla as a potential replacement for free agent Jason Bay in left field. Dan Uggla. (Al Bello / Getty Images) Uggla, 29, projects to earn approximately $8 million in arbitration. But in four major-league seasons, he has averaged 30 homers and 90 RBIs. For the Giants, he would represent a more affordable addition than Bay or Matt Holliday. The Giants would play Uggla at third, Edgar Renteria at shortstop, Freddy Sanchez at second and Pablo Sandoval at first. If Uggla went to the Orioles, he could replace free agent Melvin Mora at third base and also fill in at first base and DH. The Orioles, awaiting the arrival of third-base prospect Josh Bell, do not want to block the position long-term. They also are concerned about Uggla's defense at third; their pitching is too weak for the team to give away outs. But the team would benefit from Uggla's right-handed power. If the Marlins trade Uggla, they almost certainly will keep third baseman Jorge Cantu, who also is arbitration-eligible. Cantu, 27, has driven in 195 runs the past two seasons and provides protection for shortstop Hanley Ramirez in the cleanup spot. Emilio Bonifacio likely would replace Uggla at second, with top prospect Logan Morrison perhaps taking over at first.
