Conine's problem besides his health, is grand slam encarnacion. As long as enc continues to play well, conine wont see much playing time, even though the season is very long, and if conine doesnt see much playing time you gotta believe the FO will trade either him or enc away. Conine will eventually start complaining about playing time more than he already has. He's still too serviceable to rot on the bench

I don't think Jeff will do much complaining for any number of reasons, most importantly because he just opened his restaurant in Hollywood and the last thing he wants is to be traded elsewhere.

Steve isn't going anywhere, he is going to finish his career with the Marlins and then remain with the team in some facet, probably in the front office as a "special advisor to the general manager" or something along those lines.

 

Unless Niner was traded for Albert Pujols or Vlad Guerrero, the Marlins would take a beating in the press and they would really upset the entire fanbase. Beinfest and Loria have too much to lose by trading away Niner.

Niner will stay. This is home for him. And home is important to him. The new restaurant is an interesting diversion but, in fact, he wants it to work. That's his style.

 

By mid-season he will get his share of AB's. He plays three (arguably four) positions and these over-bred thorough-breds are prone to disabling injuries.

 

Steve will be important. I do think Jack is making a mistake keeping him in the Gate. He's not used to bench-squatting. Not good psychologically for a champion, just as it wasn't good for champion JP.

 

Jack is thinking about the long-haul. He doesn't realize that part of the long-haul is the short-haul.
