Potential free agent signee Juan Uribe is said to be looking for a three-year contract, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Although the market is thin for third baseman this season, Heyman does not like the chances of Uribe getting such a contract.
Even if he were to fetch a three-year contract, that would seemingly take the Marlins out of the hunt for the 34-year old. The Marlins are seeking a temporary stop-gap solution for third base with third base prospect Colin Moran expected to be ready sometime in 2015. Signing Uribe and benching Moran, who could be a better player at that point, does not make much sense for the Marlins.

In 2013, the Marlins employed the services of a young Adeiny Hechavarria at shortstop. Hech is a wizard with the glove, often times making plays that were spectacular to see. Unfortunately, Hech made too many errors on plays he should have made, and that hurt his defensive value.
Welcome back to the Greatest Moments in Marlins History. From 1956-1960 there was a team in Miami called the Marlins who played in the International League. This team has no affiliation with our current Marlins, but earlier this year the Marlins wore the 1956 Miami Marlins Jersey with a Satchel Paige patch. So today we present moment 133- Satchel Paige pitching for the Miami Marlins!
Living in Alabama is not an idea situation for me, as I am a big Miami sports fan. One advantage of living here though is that the state does have a few minor league teams, including the Birmingham Barons. The Barons hosted the Miami Marlins Double-A affiliate at their brand new ballpark and I was fortunate enough to land media credentials for the series.
