There have been varying rumors surrounding the Miami Marlins
and outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. They’ve ranged from the team being willing to listen to offers on Stanton to there being a nearly no chance that the slugger gets moved this winter. That being said, Hal Bodley of MLB.com believes the
Marlins should trade Stanton; the sooner the better.
The Miami Marlins should trade Giancarlo Stanton -- the
sooner, the better.
By making this trade now, and assuming the return is as
awesome as it should be, Miami's return to contention would be accelerated.
Bodley says that a Stanton trade would expedite the Marlins’
rebuilding effort. He also believes the team “won’t win that many more games in
2013” with Stanton in their lineup. While Bodley knows it’s not what suffering
Marlins’ fans want to hear, but he believes a trade is the best move for the
Stanton hit .290/.361/.608 with 30 doubles and 37 home runs
last season for Miami, and the 23-year-old owns a career OPS of .903 over three
years in the majors.

Between their new stadium with those lime green walls and monstrosity in Left-Center Field, new signings, loud manager, last place finish, and subsequent selloff that shook the Miami political system, the Marlins have been an interesting team. Their unorthodox approach has been present since their inception...

Javier Vazquez may still have it.
The 36-year-old tossed six innings of three-hit ball in front of scouts from the Red Sox, Rays, Nationals and Royals on Friday night in the Puerto Rico Winter League playoffs, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.

Veteran right-handed starting pitcher Javier Vazquez has indicated he has some interest in pitching again in 2013 after sitting out, semi-retired, during 2012. The Washington Nationals reportedly have interest, but only on a minor-league deal. The Boston Red Sox also may have some interest. Vasquez wants to play for a contender, and in the past has indicated he...
When looking at the free agent pitchers left on the market, the pickings are slim for teams still in need of a starter.

However, one name is popping up on the radar...
