Marlin Maniac's Chris Logel examines the recent comments from VP Michael Hill surrounding the possibility of trading their bevy of young pitching prospects.
Cuban refugee turned NL Rookie of the Year Jose Fernandez took some out of his first offseason as a Miami Marlin to visit and learn about other Cuban exiles.
Earlier this week, the Chicago White Sox sent highly touted Addison Reed to Arizona in exchange for top-100 corner infield prospect Matt Davidson. Mr. Logel asks the question about whether or not Miami missed a golden opportunity to land a potential 1st baseman for the future.
As the overall consensus opinion surrounding Carter Capps/Logan Morrison swap has stated countless times, the Marlins took a gamble when they traded Morrison for a middle of the road reliever. While Garrett Jones could be a solid fit at 1st, the act of basically giving up on a relatively young slugger for a possible set-up man is definitely a huge gamble.

On December 17, 2000, City of Miami officials and the Marlins announced plans for a new baseball-only stadium in downtown Miami.
The Miami Marlins' options at third base this season are running thin, and at this rate, the Fish may not find a replacement who would be an actual improvement over in-house options like Donovan Solano.
On this day in team history, the expansion Marlins signed free agent catcher Benito Santiago to a two-year contract. An All-Star the previous four seasons, Santiago played solidly for Florida before giving way to top prospect Charles Johnson.
The Miami Marlins are still looking for a player to fill in at third base, and Casey McGehee's name has come up in rumors thanks to the team's interest in positional flexibility.
Despite signing several free agents and making a pair of trades, the Miami Marlins believe they still have moves to make, particularly at third base. The Marlins were reportedly not in a hurry to make any moves.
