MIAMI — Greg Dobbs is attracking interest from several teams, one of them being the Nationals. But a return to the Marlins still remains a possibility for the veteran infielder. Miami remains in the mix to sign Dobbs as a free agent. In 2011, he was a bargain, signing a Minor League deal with an invitation to Spring Training. Dobbs, 33, initially was used as a left-handed bat off the bench, but he ended up getting regular playing time, mainly at third base. Dobbs batted .275 with eight home runs and 49 RBIs in 411 at-bats. As a pinch-hitter, he made big impact, hitting .370 (10-for-27) with a home run and eight RBIs. – Joe Frisaro

Reyes says he's eager to play with Ramirez

Jose Reyes says he hasn't heard from new teammate Hanley Ramirez since signing a $106 million, six-year deal last week with the Miami Marlins.

Miami Marlins' New Logo Is Nuts, Which Is Also a Good Way to Describe the Team

The Miami Marlins have a new stadium, a new shortstop, a new manager and a new attitude, so it's only fitting that they have a new logo. Formerly the Florida Marlins, the Miami Marlins unveiled their unique logo this offseason to a mixed reception, but cartoonist Will O'Toole thinks it might just be perfect. Check it out in the cartoon above. Since graduating from Seton Hall...

2012 Uniform Changes: Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins had one of the most dramatic change in uniforms this season. The uniform change comes with a new stadium, a new team (hello Jose Reyes) and a new team name, the Miami Marlins, formerly known as the Florida Marlins. One of the key aspects of the makeover is the change of the color scheme from green and a little bit of black to orange and little bit of black. The...

Miami Marlins Add Bargain Basement Buys to Big Shopping List

The biggest splash this MLB Hot Stove season has no doubt been made by the fish. The Marlins spent big bucks on Jose Reyes, Ozzie Guillen and Mark Buerhle. They’ve done some thrift store shopping now to complement the “backing up the truck.”  From Bob Wirz, Indy Baseball Chatter: The Miami Marlins are not limiting their signings to those expensive major league free agents...

Olney: Red Sox and Marlins had dialogue about Hanley Ramirez

As expected, Cherington and company looked into Hanley Ramirez. "No traction" in an interesting way to refer to it -- but regardless of semantics, the Marlins don't appear to be interested in what we have to offer. Aaron wrote on Monday that a deal would likely hinge on a package involving Clay Buchholz and/or Kevin Youkilis, and I'd say prospects would probably...

Sandy talks about Reyes, and the definition of an ‘offer’

Yesterday at Citi Field, Sandy Alderson said he has no regrets over how things played out between the Mets and Jose Reyes. He said he never wanted to make the first offer to Reyes, knowing Jose’s agents would simply turn around and shop that offer to other teams (forcing the Mets to eventually offer more anyway). As an example, he doesn’t think it is a coincidence that Jose’s...

Setting the Mahmud

RSBS Special Correspondent and Ryan Braun Beef Injector, Mr. Johanna Mahmud reports: Things to Do in Miami When You’re Dead Just one week ago I wrote about all the good the Marlins are doing. It’s been an interesting week since then. I baked. I strung lights. I went sledding in my neighbor’s bathtub (she may or may not know this). I made a gingerbread house. I have Christmas...

Indians In Serious Talks With Jose Lopez

In an effort to balance out their predominantly left-handed lineup, the Indians are in serious talks with infielder Jose Lopez according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. This is another indication that the team is beginning to sour on Matt LaPorta.
