Miami Marlins Winter Meetings: Live Blog, Day 1

With the Winter Meetings set to kick off today, Marlin Maniac will be holding a live blog that will allow Marlins fans to stay up to date with everything that is going on at the Winter Meetings. It’s like you get to be there yourself!

The Meetings are taking place from December 9th-12th in Orlando Florida. These meetings allow representatives for all teams to get together and hammer out deals that presumably improve their teams.

The Marlins figure to be pretty big players during these meetings, as they have been dangling Logan Morrison for the better part of two weeks. We will be taking side bets during this time as to which day Morrison will get traded. All kidding aside, this space will allow us to explore every rumor, regardless of how big or how small, and discuss the ramifications of all moves for the Marlins.

With a new front office, we can be sure that they are going to want to make their mark on this team, and we have seen that already with the signings of Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Rafael Furcal and pending Garrett Jones. Look for the Marlins to be big players over the next few days.

Please join us in the comments section below and jump in with your opinion, we value everyone’s, even if you don’t agree with us. We will get started at 8:30 am EST.
