Gaby Sanchez going to get a shot

According to Fredi, first base is Gaby Sanchez's to lose.

Jorge Cantu might end up starting at first base on opening day for the Marlins, but rookie Gaby Sanchez will get the first shot at winning the job this spring.

"Sanchez is going to play first base, or we'll give him an opportunity to play first base,'' Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said Wednesday when asked how he thinks Florida's defense will improve next year.

"If that doesn't work out, we can always move Jorge from third to first, and he was pretty good at first base.''

I have absolutely no problem with this.  I really believe Gaby is the future first baseman of the Marlins and it is time to see what he can do.

Just in case you want to bring up Logan Morrison, his future with the Fish is in left field.  And he is already being prepared for the change of positions.
