I am going to try to do this twice a week, I will have updates on the Miami Marlins and their free-agency scramble to put together a contender heading into a new stadium. Here are some recent updates:
- Javier Vazquez is a 50-50 chance to retire or pitch next season. He prefers to pitch on the East Coast, but you can count the Marlins out as a team he may pitch for next season. Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Vazquez’s rocky relationship with Marlins new manager, Ozzie Guillen will keep the 34-year old from returning to the Marlins. (This is what Rosenthal reported on Hot Stove Live, no active link for it.)
- According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Marlins are concerned about the command issues C.J. Wilson had in the postseason.
These are all the updates I have up to the moment. Expect to see another update on Wednesday. Stay tuned to MarlinManiac for further updates and analysis on further Marlins off-season moves.
