A notable day in Marlins history...

 

Courtesy of MLBTradeRumors.com, this gem, reminding us all that it is never too early in the season to start a firesale:

On this date 11 years ago, the Marlins traded Gary Sheffield, Bobby Bonilla, Charles Johnson and two others to the Dodgers for Mike Piazza and Todd Zeile. Piazza's tenure with the Marlins would last five games in which he was 5-18 with a triple and 5 RBI. Seven days later he was traded to the Mets for Preston Wilson and two minor league pitchers that would combine for 5 career appearances.

CJ isn't 2nd on my list of favorite Marlins (Mike Lowell #1, Conine #3, Pudge #4, Chuck Carr #5... and the list goes on).  Also, Piazza should go into the HOF as a Marlin, just as a slap in the face to the Mets... hey, it's an annual, last game of the year tradition anyway...
