I've scoured this week's Sports Weekly, and I thought I'd take the opportunity to update everyone on where all the ex-Marlins are heading into Spring Training 2004

I did the same thing you did, but on the MLB web site and found only a few you missed. In Baltimore there is Denny Bautista-ML, Boston-Jeff Bailey-ML, CLE-Dusty Wathan-ML, Det-Pablo Ozuna, Greg Norton-ML. You did a great job.

Wow, how did I miss Bautista?....I believe we had DEREK Wathan, not Dusty, or did we have both?....Ozuna isn't listed as on the 40-man roster, or as a non-roster invitee for Detroit, and Norton actually didn't play in the organization according to baseball-reference.com; I think there was someone with a similar name in the org. though.

I had Norton listed in 1999 Media guide and team yearbook. Dusty Wathan played at Portland in 2001. Also when did Shane Halter play in the Marlins system?

According to his stats, Norton played a FULL year with the White Sox in '99. I'll have to do more investigating on that....


You're right....Wathan was with the Marlins.


I could've sworn Halter played in AAA years back.....

The Tigers formally opened spring training by losing C Ivan Rodriguez's luggage ... In addition to signing Rodriguez, owner Mike Ilitch said the Tigers will further re-establish their identity and boost their self-esteem by replacing their bullpen carts with fully-loaded Cadillac Escalades that will need to be refueled after every pitching change
