Great idea. But where will we play him? Can he get into our lineup?

I'm assuming If we sign Gary we won't have Mike anymore either, seeing as we can't afford both...

I don't see the Marlins dishing out the kind of money Gary will demand. I don't really want him back anyway.

It isn't as simple as just saying it. We don't have the money to have both.

A) Keep Lowell

B) Get Gary

Pick one...

Yea seriously. They have the money to keep him, he has been there a little bit, he's settled. Why leave to a losing team for less money?

Which one, Sheff or Lowell? How bout I don't think we can afford either.

Although if it were to happen I think we could make room for him if we had to.

I wonder if Sheff could catch? ;) Now there's a nice power hitting position we haven't had properly filled in awhile. :angry

I would prefer to go after Vladimir Guerrero. He is younger than Sheffield and probably doesn't cause as much trouble...

Where does everyone get the idea that were going to have extra money around to sign a big-name free agent. The reason the Marlins will have to get rid of some of the higher-salaried players on this team is because they wont be able to afford them, not to replace them with other higher-salaried players. Because of the one-year contracts and the players increased salaried through arbitration, the Marlins payroll would go up $10-20 million just to keep this team intact. Paring Lee or Lowell or Castillo, etc. would be an effort to get the payroll down to what Loria wants to spend. After that, there wont be all this extra money around.

Thank you Ross....


If this team decides to trade the big 3...



Expect no big name free agent to even get a prank call from this organization in the offseason.
