Rodriguez, who managed the Marlins for parts of two seasons, will take over the Carolina Mudcats, the Indians' Class A team. The 51-year-old Rodriguez went 78-85 with the Marlins and became the first Puerto Rican-born manager in major league history. Before taking over the Marlins, Rodriguez managed in Florida's development system for five years. In that role, he worked as the Mudcats hitting coach in 2004.

How Would Jose Reyes Fit On The Marlins?

In thinking of the likely landing spots for Jose Reyes, few if any would have guessed the Florida…er Miami Marlins. But with multiple reports speculating on such a possibility, it’s worth taking a look at how exactly Reyes would fit in with the Fish. The biggest question of course, is what do with incumbent shortstop Hanley Ramirez (for this exercise, let’s assume that he...

Hanley Ramirez Not Pleased About Moving From Shortstop

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, a source has told him that Hanley Ramirez is not at all pleased at the prospect of changing positions if the Marlins sign Jose Reyes and that the two shortstops are not the friends many portray them to be. If Reyes signs with the Marlins, the belief is Ramirez will go to third. There is an outside chance that the Marlins could put...

Can the Marlins Really Sign Reyes, Pujols and Buehrle?

The Florida Marlins have never been known for having deep pockets. The team never enters an offseason eyeing the top free agents in the class. The Marlins combine talented homegrown prospects with cheap stopgap solutions and, in most cases, deal their players away before they get very expensive. This has been their modus operandi for years, which makes it all the more interesting...

A Jose Reyes deal likely would be richest in Miami Marlins history by long shot

The same can be said for a pact with Albert Pujols, but let’s focus on Jose Reyes since by most accounts the Marlins have a more realistic shot of landing him. Joel Sherman of the New York Post via Twitter on Monday quoted an executive from a team interested in Reyes as saying: “The target is $100 million minimum. Until he gets a deal that starts with a 1, he will not sign....

Hanley not ready to make position change for Reyes?

If you’re a Miami Marlins fan you have to be pleased with the news you’ve been hearing to start this offseason.  With offers reportedly out to almost every big name free agent on the market and a new stadium going up, the South Beach sun has never looked brighter.  Here’s the thing about Florida though……a rain storm is never far away.  Out of nowhere a dark cloud can...

Aggressive Marlins Could Make NL East Tough in ’12

The Nationals have slowly become the chic NL East sleeper, thanks to a series of impactful high-round draft picks (Stephen Strasburg, Drew Storen, Jordan Zimmermann, Bryce Harper), good trades (Wilson Ramos, Michael Morse) and a stable superstar leader in Ryan Zimmerman.But swiftly and loudly, the new-look Miami Marlins are trying to make a more immediate surge to the top...

MLB Network: Jose Reyes Agrees To Deal With Marlins Pending Physical

According to Maury Brown, MLB Network is reporting that Jose Ryes to Marlins is a DONE DEAL and pending a physical. Dino Costa of SiriusXM Radio, first reported that Jose Reyes has agreed to sign with the Miami Marlins. Costa says the deal hinges on whether current Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez agrees to move to third base. If that happens, “this deal is done.” As Jorge Sedano...

Reyes deal with Miami Marlins awaiting Hanley’s approval?

For starters, our post title is a question, not a statement, because it all depends on which report you believe.  One thing is for sure; just when you thought a football-filled Sunday afternoon would yield a break in the ever turning Jose Reyes rumor mill, conflicting reports as to whether or not the free agent shortstop has agreed to a deal with the Miami Marlins have it churning...

Marlins Make Offers to 3 Big Fish

All it took was a stadium built mostly at taxpayers' expense, a quick name change and new uniforms to get the Miami Marlins to open up the pocketbook for some elite free agents. Reports have surfaced that the Marlins have made contract offers to three free agents: 1B Albert Pujols, SS Jose Reyes, and P Mark Buehrle. All three visited Miami last week and toured the new stadium...

Taking His Talents To South Beach?

There are two aspects to the Miami Marlins & Jose Reyes saga that I haven’t really heard mentioned yet. The first is that the Marlins had to put up $155 million for the stadium, plus purchase an additional $100 million in parking from the city. These funds do not include any additional stadium cost. Frankly, I’m not sure who paid the staff when they were at the old stadium...
