The only guy I'd really like to see signed to a long term contract is Hermida.

 

Keep Uggla until the year before he is eligible for free agency, trade him at the deadline, and call up Coghlan.

 

Not sure exactly what to do with Jacobs and Willingham. I'm not too sure if the Marlins have them in their long term plans or what.

i would like for hermida and uggla to stick around for a while

 

uggla possesses that rare power found among 2B

 

as much as i love hammer and jake, they do seem to pick up a few too many niggling injuries so possibly this will come into the minds of the owners when deciding about long term deals?

I have no problem at all with Jake. But Hammer needs to do something about that back. Just relaxing it during the off season isn't fixing the problem.

The message behind the Ramirez signing to the other Marlins players (specifically those going to arbitration the first time) is, "You are the masters of your own destiny. in on their efforts. Step up your game and be rewarded, don't and the train's leaving you at the station", which is exactly the right one to send in a season that increasingly looks like one in which they have a legitimate and so far well-earned chance at competing.

 

If they didn't know before, the third year Marlins certainly know now how to cash in. I have a pretty good idea of who stays and goes but a lot will be determined by what happens in July, and why.

This. Hermida long-term, Willingham through arbitration years at least. Olsen as well, if he remains on good behavior for the next year.

 

If the team is fading by the trading deadline, and Uggla still has good numbers, selling while his value is maximized would be great. I like Uggla a lot, but investing long-term in a second baseman approaching 30 is almost never a good idea. Coughlan/Andino/Amezega could fill in decently, and hopefully Coughlan develops into an OBP machine down the road. If there's money to keep him around for another four years, great, but I'd rather lock up the other guys mentioned first.

 

Jake you keep only while he is fairly cheap. His level of production at first base is not hard to find, and 1B depth in the organization is looking better, with Morrison, Sanchez and a good chance of taking a 1B in the first round this year.
