Posted at minorleagueball.com, looking at the type of players the Marlins have picked in recent drafts, to identify potential Marlins 2013 draft picks.
Being a Marlins fan can be difficult. Anyone that cares about baseball knows this. While I certainly don't know the "answer", here're a few of my thoughts if anyone is interested.
At 20 years of age, Jose Fernandez made the jump few do from High-A to the major leagues. But you wouldn't have been able to tell by his performance. Feedback welcome.
The Marlins sign another minor league deal with spare parts from the free agent market. This time it's 30 year old 1B Casey Kotchman. Does this mean that the Marlins are going to try the LoMo in LF thing again? If he makes the club, will he get more or less undeserved praise from Tommy Hutton than Carlos Lee did?
How excited are the Marlins to have Yunel Escobar? They were calling around shopping him last week, before the mega-deal was even official.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) November 20, 2012
Don't put down money on that new Yuinel Escobar jersey just yet. The Marlins have been shopping Escobar. Brought to you by the hack-tastic Jeff Passan.
The Marlins have decided to part ways with manager Ozzie Guillen, according to the Marlins' Facebook page.
The Marlins start Wade LeBlanc in Josh Johnson's place today, ending JJ's season at 191.1 IP. While 200 IP was unlikely (though hey, it is the Mets), it seems like a shame to not give him a shot at it.
