Jeff Conine, nicknamed Mr. Marlin, has accepted a standing offer from the club to become a special assistant. The meetings in Las Vegas are his first official duties with the team. Conine's role will be similar to special assistants Andre Dawson and Tony Perez. He expects to be at Spring Training with Florida in some capacity.

  2. Agree, not sure why everyone is clawing for Dallas to be a starter next year. Let him show he's healthy and productive for more than a season.

  5. The Marlins are expected to move their Triple A affiliate from Albuquerque (N.M.) to in New Orleans next season. According to industry sources, and a Marlin source, the team will replace the Mets affiliate in New Orleans. The Mets are moving to Buffalo.

  8. I know I don't really post, but did anyone else just catch that? Straub, who owns the Miami arena put in a permit to demolish the arena, and wants to build and finance a new marlins stadium on the site.

The confidence that was showed in me by Jeff Torborg, Jack McKeon, Joe Girardi and Fredi Gonzalez was greatly appreciated. My respect and love goes out to all of the players I had the privilege to work with over the years. Each one touched my heart in a special way. I would like to than
  10. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2732239 Dontrelle Willis reached agreement Monday on a one-year, guaranteed $6.45 million contract with the Florida Marlins, a day before he was scheduled to exchange salary arbitration figures with the club. Willis' deal includes $50,000 in incentives, a "sizable" advance on his salary, and bonuses if he makes the All-Star team or wins the Cy Young Award, Silver Slugger or National League Most Valuable Player Award, according to his agent, Matt Sosnick.
