Marlins: Buyers or Sellers (or Neither)?

'This weekend's series against the Philadelphia Phillies could be the most important of the season for the Marlins - and for reasons only partly related to the standings.

'The team's three highest-ranking baseball officials - General Manager Larry Beinfest, assistant GM Michael Hill and Dan Jennings, the vice president of player development - all will be ready to make a deal. Only they might have to wait until Sunday to determine if they're buyers or sellers.

'If the Marlins, who began the weekend six games back in the National League wild-card race, win three of the first four games here, they could be inspired to make a deal before Monday's 1 p.m. nonwaiver trade deadline to bring in an outfielder or some help for the bullpen. But if they stumble, they could be persuaded to deal closer Joe Borowski or utilityman Wes Helms, both of whom have received a lot of interest from other teams.' (AZCentral)
