Ivan Rodriguez not returning to the Marlins

Apparently, Ivan Rodriguez will have to look for employment elsewhere.

"Our payroll has gone up significantly and I would say we are set," said Samson, who put at "zero" any chance the Marlins would sign ex-All-Star catcher Pudge Rodriguez, squelching rumors.

Not signing Pudge really doesn't bother me at all, but does the above statement mean we are going with Rabelo as the backup?  I truly hope not.

Surely the Marlins can start checking behind the couch cushions and come up with enough money for someone better.
