Seems very unlikely that he'll be able to land a roster spot. Marlins already have a lot of guys competing for reserve spots (Coghlan, Peterson, Cousins, Rowand, etc.).

 

Still worth the try though I guess.

 

EDIT: Wow, really didn't mean to almost copy SF745's post above me.

The most heckling from the Fish Tank I've heard was directed towards Kevin Gregg. Good times.

Ha, my favorite was heckling Carlos Delgado when he came back in 2006. Not like he could hear us. Then a Mets fan in front of us stood up and purposely mooned us with his disgusting, hairy ass.

 

 

What's the point of heckling Carlos Delgado? The guy picked us to sign with out of several suitors in FA and we happened to turn around and send him out of town for minor leaguers the next year.

Actually, we sent him to the Mets for Mike Jacobs.

Mike Jacobs got us Leo Nunez 4 years later.

Leo Nunez turned into Juan Carlos Oviedo 3 years later.

Juan Carlos Oviedo ... to be determined.

Leo Nunez was a total screw-up and it's fitting that his career ended with a fraud, which is what he was as a closer. But I'm confident that this Oviedo guy is gonna do well as a set-up man. He hasn't had an ERA over 4.06 in the last 5 years, and plus a change of scenery from playing in the black hole that was Florida to coming to an exciting locale like Miami can only help him.

He's gonna be the same guy because roles don't really matter. You're either a good reliever or you're not a good reliever. Leo Nunez worst season as a Marlin was as a setup man. The whole "doesn't have the mentality to be a closer" is bulls***. He's just not very good. Always been the same guy. He allows too many HR's to be the very good high-leverage reliever the Marlins hope he can become.
