Marlins' Biggest Free Agent Regret?

Recommended Posts

https://www.mlb.com/marlins/news/biggest-free-agent-regret-for-all-30-mlb-teams/c-299811520

MLB.com with an article on each team's biggest regret in terms of free agency... it could be a bad signing or even letting a guy walk in free agency. But I was shocked to see their choice for the Marlins was signing John Burkett in 1995... there are clearly better choices here... anyone wanna name some?

Eh that was just a one-year deal for him to be a back-end-of-the-rotation starter (although he was certainly REALLY bad).

I'll say Bell with John Buck being a close runner-up.

It's not like we have a plethora of guys to choose from.

When I read the article title my first thought was Saltalamacchia and then John Buck. Then I thought of Chen and Rafael Furcal. After that it seems like whoever we signed before 2012 is an easy answer. Also was Casey Kotchman a free agent signing?

Kinda still wanna know why they think John Burkett was such a disaster.

No we don't but it sure feels like most of our free agent signings have been busts. Or maybe a better question is to ask who has been a successful signing because that's a short list.

Also, just remembered Volquez.

I thought of him too but I looked it up and he wasnt a free agent signing he was a trade for Yusmeiro Petit.
