From floridamarlins.com:

Fish bites: The Marlins have no interest in signing catcher Javy Lopez, recently released by the Rockies. ... Several teams have expressed interest in outfielder Cody Ross, who projects to make the team as a reserve outfielder, if he isn't moved. ... Jason Wood continues to make things happen. The 37-year-old started at second base Wednesday, doubled and scored in the fourth inning. Wood went 2-for-4 and raised his spring average to .478.


Does anyone know if the Giants or Diamondbacks would have any interest in him? Could the Marlins get one of Benitez or Julio for Ross and a larger chunk of salary than has previously been speculated? I'm just wondering if FO would consider picking up more salary if one of the teams agreed to take Ross instead of a pitching prospect.

Would trading him be worth it if it cleared up a roster spot for Wood?

What'd you give up to get him?

There's his value.

we basically got him for nothing, so anything you could get would be great.


he is having a horrible spring, not really sure what to read into that though, as spring isnt really getting serious until about now. Maybe he felt secure in his job or was working on some things, which could explain his lack of success so far...

Some people laughed (ramp, cough).....


but I told them Jason Wood is good!
lololololol

great, he is having a wonderful spring... yay... let's throw a ticker tape parade on las olas!

and Jason Wood is not "good"

if he was "good", he wouldn't be fighting for his roster spot

he's a nice player to have off the bench, or for the once a month spot start

Keep telling yourself that...Wood should have been in the majors for years now...a big reason why many major league teams want him as a future coach.

so his mental abilites is why he should be a MLB player?

hilarious.

He hasnt made it in the Majors mostly because he has never been good enough, not because he has been 'held back'

You are funny.

Ramp, respectfully, saying Jason Wood isn't good is just prejudice. He's done everything that's been asked of him, he's made the most of the opportunities offered him, and yeah he's 37 years old but he's going out there and doing his thing, which is more than can be said for some others on the roster. At some point "good" stops being defined as 27 and a stud when both your BA and OBP are hoving around .500. Without looking my guess is his OPS has to be in the 1.2 range. The guy has played every infield position this spring, made a great play at 2B playing there, has acquitted himself at 3B and 1B, he is what he is. No is making him out as a superstar, at least I'm not, but you have to root for the guy if for no other reason than he's delivering.

You could say he's everything Reggie Abercrombie wasn't five tools or no five tools.

That said, this thread I believe is about Cody Ross' trade value (putting aside the fact his wife is stunningly beautiful) if it's true that GMs on other teams have some interest in him it has to be based on what they saw last season rather this ST. For a number of teams, Ross is not the worst kind of guy to have coming off the bench or platooning, he is capable of getting scary good in streaks, I think though his value lies in rounding out a bigger package rather than him alone. He's aminimum wage guy which helps, but not a standalone talent.

Frankly if Fredi is intent on 13 pitchers it's hard to see how he sticks unless another roster spot opens up and at this point I don;t expect that. In the end I suspect the Marlins get what they can for him at the deadline and he moves on.

Jason Wood = fan favorite. Marlins will be smart to add him to the roster. He's a better hitter than Lenny Harris was with the Marlins and I think he can do exactly what Helms did last year.

Fan favorite?

No one has a clue who he is. And if he were to do what Wes Helms did last year, I will buy you his jersey off his back.

He doesn't have to be better than anyone else, he just has to contribute when asked to.

I do think the one thing working against him is the presence of Aaron Boone. Maybe, and it's a real longshot Beinfest becomes enarmored enough with Wood's play (operative word is "play") that he finds a "better situation" for Boone that leaves everyone feeling good and no worse off than they were when camp opened.

But admittedly purely wild speculation. Right now though you have to think Wood stays over Ross and Amezega gets more OF playing time as a result.

with Ross having no options left, you wonder if the Marlins would let him walk

Even the worst dart player hits the bullseye every now and then. or a 582 foot home run into the skyline of Cincinnati.

I will eat my hands if Jason Wood matches Wes Helms OPS over 250 plate appearances.

There are 30 major league teams. If he should have been in the majors by now, he would have been.

No kidding.. i think a 37 year old in his first MLB season could easily belt out a .965 OPS.

Cody Ross is having a terrible spring, but he is still a good defensive outfielder with a great arm. He has good power and doesn't need to play every day to be happy. When he does play he gives 200% everytime. He is a gritty player as well. Many teams don't have a 4th outfielder to match those qualifications
