2011 - The Year of Javier

(FIXED) Vazquez turned down two 2-year offers to sign a one-year deal with the Fish.

This Xmas-season deal is reported to involve Santa's brother, a Mr. No-Trade Claus. (Wow...Jeffrey had never believed in Santa's brother before).

"The Yankees will receive a supplemental pick between the first and second rounds of the 2011 draft as compensation for losing Vazquez".

Javier had a rough 2010. Michael Jong thinks the complete-the-deal physical should be "highly important for the Fish in this case".

Happenings

Both John Buck and Dan Uggla get their new numbers.

Saturday begins a new year of the Marlins Insider radio show.

The Marlins put Caminero and Reed on the 40-man but leave Sinkbeil exposed to the Rule 5.

The Marlins (with a bunch of sponsors) distributed hundreds of turkey feasts to the people of Little Havana.

 

Some Thots

Bottom line: Loria wants results. People now claim that the Cabrera trade was a bust for the Fish now that Miller and Maybin are gone. Bottom line: Since that December 2007 trade the Marlins have a better win/loss record than the Tigers. The fact that Detroit was finally better than the Marlins (by a game) in 2010 may have been an early suggestion to the front office for some direction shift.

Who knows?...Omar Infante may have been a lost piece of the Detroit trade, just missed by the Marlins as he was traded (for Jacque Jones!) three weeks before Miggy and D-Train were shipped. (He got to the Braves in a trade with Will Ohman - geesh, once and future Marlins were hovering around this guy).

One thing's for sure: when Loria says they're not done doing deals, that's when everything starts to quiet down and nothing begins to happen, for some reason.

Anything Happen Today?

Well, let's see...oh, the Marlins seem to have signed Toronto catcher John Buck to a 3-year deal...

...Oh yeah, and they also have traded Dan Uggla to the Braves for lefty Mike Dunn and infielder Omar Infante.

Other than that, not much.

Fish Release Spring Schedule

It's a schedule that screams 'Let's pack up and move to Arizona!' They're in Kissimmee on the 3rd, then they take the bus all the way back to Jupiter on the 4th, go all the way to the west coast of Florida (Ft. Myers) on the 5th, then all the way back to Jupiter on the 6th. Then again, they take the bus from Jupiter all the way to Ft. Myers on the 12th, then all the way back to Jupiter on the 13th, and then right back to Ft. Myers again on the 14th. At least on the 16th they start a whole week at home. (MLB)

Getting Burned

The Marlins' flagship radio station is now the Heat's flagship radio station.

Since the Heat felt they were put on a lower level compared to the Dolphins on their last radio station, they exercised their option to move to 790theTicket, where it's a question at what level the Marlins will be placed in this new arrangement.

The Heat's last seven regular-season games smack right into the beginning of the Marlins' new season.

And since the Heat should be a shoo-in for the playoffs, this scheduling conflict will have an open-ended continuity.

Fearless prediction: a solution will be decided sometime within the next six months.

Fish Report

The Fish do some promoting. (mlb)

Former-Fish and WS MVP Edgar Renteria was bought out by the Giants. (allheadlinenews)

Former-Fish Kevin Gregg has been let go by the Blue Jays. (miamiherald)

And Former-Fish Miguel Olivo was a Blue Jay for about an hour-and-a-half last night. (lookoutlanding)

 

Stadium Fallout

The County Commission want the Marlins to increase their share of the stadium costs. The Marlins probably won't oblige them, as they're spending too much defending their buddy Mayor Alvarez against Norman Braman's recall petition.
