So far, it has been a big week for the Fish. After signing Wei-Yin Chen, Edwin Jackson, and Chris Johnson, the roster has been upgraded, but now it is time to lock-up the arbitration-eligible stars already on the team.
Chris Johnson, a career .280 hitter, has been brought in on a free agent deal. He will provide bench depth and can play third base whenever Martin Prado needs a day off.
At the start of the week, it was plausible to wonder how Miami would compete in 2016 with a less than stellar starting rotation. However, now that Wei-Yin Chen has been signed, the starting pitching unit has a lot of promise.
Wei-Yin Chen just received the largest ever contract the Marlins have given to a pitcher, so does this mean that they are now committed to competing for championships?

It is a better idea to bet money on Bartolo Colon hitting an inside-the-park home run than it is to buy a ticket for the Powerball. Seriously.
Come to mention it, it has been a weird off-season regarding outfielders in general.
