I think Marlin fans should really hope this deal does not happen. However, I believe that if the Yankees eat enough of the money owed to Alex Rodriquez it will be a hard deal for the Marlins management to pass up. There is a hole at third in Miami and while Alex is better than what the Marlins currently have, the baggage that comes along with him is huge. The Marlins management is in a spot where they really need to be honest with themselves. With the young cores that the Braves and Nationals have, this team could be a few years away from being a serious contender. If that is the case, why do you need Alex Rodriguez? You don’t field a team with the sole purpose of putting butts in seats and I sincerely hope that Marlins management realizes that. If they don’t, take a long look at last year with Ozzie.
