Marlins Update

1. Declined to offer arbitration to all free agents.

         I would have hoped to keep LOOGY Arthur Rhodes, but apparently not, he’s a Red now.
2. The Marlins release Matt Treanor, get LHP Zach Kroenke in Rule V Draft from the Yankees.
         Sad to see Matt Treanor go, long time Marlin. Hopefully Kroenke could come up big, we Uggla from the D-Back’s in the Rule V Draft, if you remember.
3. Marlins re-sign Josh Johnson to a 1-year deal.
         He’s still under team control until 2011, so it’s good to know we will have the tall fella for a                              few more years.
4. After 19 teams were interested in Joe Nelson, the Rays finally signed him.
        After the Marlins wanted to sign him for $0.65M, and he wanted $0.8M, he got $1.3 from the Rays.
5. Marlins sign RP Scott Proctor to a one-year deal, who was with the Dodger for the last 1.5 years.
       The 1st free agent signing for the Marlins. This one could go either way.

The Florida Marlins Get Their Stadium…But

The Marlins have finally succeeded in the battle of the law against Norman Braman.

The Fish have received support from Miami-Dade in building a publicly funded ballpark.
The only setback is that the Marlins have to wait until 2012 for their new ballpark to open.

David Samson, the Marlin’s
president, is quoted saying: 
“This
is because of Braman. It’s not because of the economy. It’s not because of any
issues with the [final] documents. It’s not because of any of that. We are on
schedule [for 2012], and everything is going to be fine.”


The Florida Marlins now have to extend their lease with Dolphins Stadium one more year because their lease ends after the 2011 season.
