Usually have this posted on Friday’s, but I had a very hectic last week. Will try to stay caught up this week. We do have the announcing of the new CBA to look forward to on Tuesday. Now we lets take a quick look back at the week we had here on MarlinManiac.
- MarlinManiac was proud to introduce readers to two new staff writers on MarlinManiac on Monday. First up was Cory Eucalitto who wrote about a Marlins fan skepticism at the Marlins new venture to spend money on free agents. This is a very exciting time for Marlins fans, but we fans have a hard time trusting management. Second up was Will Stanifer (stany19), who wrote about what he sees Jose Reyes bring to the Marlins.
- Also on Monday, I laid out what Marlins fans should expect at the GM meetings that took place on Tuesday and Wednesday.
- On Monday night, Clark Spencer had this to tweet. I had this reaction to the tweet on if Hanley Ramirez is really upset about a position change.
- We had a breaking rumor that the Marlins had offered Albert Pujols a 9-year deal worth about $225 million. That rumor was never verified, but it did raise my confidence in the Marlins adding a major free agent.
- On Thursday we had Will Privette preview what player the Marlins might add on the Friday deadline before the Rule V Draft. Will did an excellent job by predicting three of the four players the Marlins actually did add correctly.
- Also on Thursday, James C. Etzbach Jr joined the party a little late, but he had his reactions to the Marlins new unis up.
- On Friday, I of course posted my weekly link dump, Marlins Way. Some really good reads from other Marlins blogs around the internet. Some good reads in there if you get a chance.
- Saturday and Sunday involved some excellent football games, but not to be lost in that shuffle, Will Stanifer made another post. He did an excellent job of comparing the attention the Miami Heat received this past season and what the new found attention could mean for the Marlins moving forward and how they can learn from their basketball friends.
