How serious the offers are and for whom isn't known at this point but the Marlins are running a couple up the flag pole.
''Things will get going. There's a lot of conversations,'' he said. ``The offseason has a cycle to it. The key parts to our team didn't come until after Dec. 20 last year. So it's still a little early.
``We're into it. But there are times where we need to be patient [and] remember there may be other opportunities. But there are things that we're trying to pursue now.''
I feel that one of them is a deal for Rocco Baldelli, which Dr F linked to in his comment yesterday.
The Baldelli offer makes sense assuming the Marlins don't have to sell the farm in order to get him. I have no guess at present who the other trade offer could be for, that may become clearer in a day or so. But given the following quote by Beinfest,
It is very possible that the trade offers made by the Fish wouldn't effect the present pitching rotation. The Marlins could be offering Minor Leaguers instead.
