It is Monday, which means it is time for our weekly recap. This past week returned MarlinManiac to its normal schedule. We have another busy week planned on MarlinManiac. Spring Training is just over a month away. We are prepping to have a great season. Without any further ado, here is a recap of what happened last week:
- Is Yoennis Cespedes hurting his value by playing winter ball in the Dominican? This is the question Will examined. Cespedes got off to a slow start, but has picked it up a bit lately.
- The Miami Marlins announced their 22 non-roster invitees. There are a few names that you guys will recognize.
- Matthew examined the player that seems to be the odd man out when it comes to a position to play. Read more about what the 2012 season means to Chris Coghlan and his future.
- The arbitration deadline was Tuesday at 12PM CT. The Marlins were able to come to terms with Juan Carlos Oviedo and Edward Mujica. The team was close on a deal with Emilio Bonifacio, but far apart with Anibal Sanchez.
- We continues the 1997 v. 2003 series with the poll of who was the better world series short stop for the Marlins. The polls closed at midnight this morning. Go check out the results.
- As most of you are aware, the SOPA bill that was threatened to pass, fell through. MarlinManiac made a post on Tuesday speaking out in opposition of this bill. I hope many of you signed the petition!
- I also brought you guys some updates on Prince Fielder and Yoennis Cespedes. Are either of them any closer to being Marlins? Check out the posts to find out.
- If you want to watch something hilarious, check out the video of Miami Heat superstar Lebron James pummeling Marlins owner Jeffery Loria.
