Marlins trying to lock up Josh Johnson

I hope this is accurate, but somehow I have my doubts.

The Marlins, who haven't had serious trade talks yet on Dan Uggla and Jeremy Hermida, are preparing a multiyear offer for Josh Johnson.

One, I think the team will unload Hermida.  Two, while I would like to see Uggla back, I don't think it is going to happen.  Three, Johnson isn't going to come cheap and the organization is known for their cheapness.  It will be awhile before we know anything since the Marlins honor the blackout of news while the World Series is going on.

But there is something to be said about it being reported there is the possibility of Uggla being back and JJ signing a multiyear deal.  Hope is still alive.

Now, come the Winter Meetings, this scenario could change big time.
