Changes Begin

New, comments

While they may not have been the high profile moves you were expecting, the Marlins began to shake things up yesterday (as mentioned in last night's comments).

Out

  • Nate Bump is on his way to Albuquerque. He'll likely be a starter in AAA.
  • Matt Perisho has probably seen his last day in a Marlins uniform. He's not interested in the minors and will try to join up with another team.
In I'm not sure what to think of the moves at this point. I am looking forward to cheering Bentz. Chad is a native Alaskan (not too many of those in the majors) and he was born with a slight disability, similar to former major leaguer Jim Abbott's.

Maybe it was just me, but I got all excited when I read The Herald's headline this morning ("First move: Shuffle relievers"). For a brief instant it gave me hope that there were actually established roles in the bullpen. Unfortunately (other than Jones as the closer), it appears that defined roles are non-existent in the bullpen. Maybe that will start to sort itself out now that everyone can feel the uncomfortableness resulting from a relative mainstay like Bump being demoted.
