2014 Miami Marlins Analysis

Winter Meetings: Marlins lineup optimization

The Miami Marlins made a series of moves to try and improve from the putrid 2013 season. Did the additions of Garrett Jones and Rafael Furcal and the subtraction of Logan Morrison help or hurt the team? Let's optimize the lineup and find out.

Morrison trade: Capps and justifying Jones signing

The Miami Marlins signed Garrett Jones to justify trading Logan Morrison, the only first baseman the team has ever known. Is Carter Capps enough justification to make that signing worthwhile?

Morrison trade: Small return for flawed player

The Miami Marlins got a decent reliever in return for the disappointing career of Logan Morrison. Carter Capps has some tools to make the return at least acceptable given Morrison's poor performance.

Marlins had replacement third baseman in Escobar

The Miami Marlins would not have to jump through hoops and veteran castoffs on their last legs had the team made a reasonable offer to Yunel Escobar last season rather than playing a hard line with him.

Jones signing: Morrison trade critical to signing

The Miami Marlins are closing in on a deal with free agent first baseman Garrett Jones, but the success of that deal is directly tied to Miami's return on incumbent Logan Morrison.

2013 Winter Meetings: Marlins preview and plan

The 2013 Winter Meetings are here and the Miami Marlins have a number of goals they need to accomplish during the next few days. What are those goals and what can Miami do?

Jones signing: Replacement first baseman flawed

The Miami Marlins appear close to signing Garrett Jones to a two-year contract to replace Logan Morrison. The problem is that Jones is essentially an older version of Morrison.

Furcal signing: Solano, Lucas to compete for 3B

The signing of Rafael Furcal put a one-year stopgap on the Miami Marlins' second base situation. That leaves utility infielders Donovan Solano and Ed Lucas to compete for the third base job.

Furcal signing: Marlins buy time with stopgap

By signing Rafael Furcal to a one-year contract to play second base, Miami is once again opting for a stopgap rather than turning to its own players. But what can Furcal bring to the table for Miami?
