Per WQAM, Al Martin was relaesed prior to today's exhibition game with the Expos.

This is a major surprise. I expect it had to do with something off the field.....

WTF?

How can this be? Martin hit his a** off this spring. Something about him not agreeing to a clause they wanted to include in his contract apparently. He didn't want to get into it before the game when Dave Van Horn spoke to him briefly.

I can't wait to hear what the front office has to say for the reasoning behind this... I hate to say it but with this group something always seems to smell fishy.

I'm sure Gerald Williams is now the 6th outfielder. Whoopee.

Maybe it's not that big of a deal, he's just the 6th outfielder. But when a guy comes in and performs like he did, he deserves to make the team. It can't possibly be money-related. Stay tuned. I'm anticipating hearing something really stupid. Hopefully I'm wrong.

hmmm, I didn't realize he was on probation. Maybe it's off the field stuff. What's his retraining order for?

Wow, I just heard the news about Martin. I'm shocked and disappointed. There is definately something "fishy" going on.

Martin had an outstanding Spring and provides a LEFTY bat off the bench. I don't get it.

I wonder if this had something to do with the deal the Marlins cut with Millar & Gerald Williams' agents? Does anyone remeber that story? Supposedly the Marlins signed Williams in order to appease Millars agent in the midst of the Japanese fiasco.

I'd rather keep Stratton than G. Williams.

:mischief2

In an unexpected turn of events on Friday, Martin said he was released because he refused to sign a waiver that enables the team to option a player to the minor leagues the first 45 days of the season.




wow if G. Williams makes the team i'm gonna freak out :angry

This is bizarre. I wonder if Brian Banks had to sign the same waiver?

I can't understand why he wouldn't sign it anyway though. The alternative is he has to start all over with another team. And based on his hitting so far he wasn't going to get sent back down.

Strange.
