After pulling off one of the most shocking trades in recent baseball memory, the Miami Marlins are apparently not done shedding payroll. After shipping Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, Emilio Bonifacio and John Baker to the Toronto Blue Jays, the Marlins are reportedly looking to trade outfielder Logan Morrison as well. The Marlins are looking to move both starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco and Morrison, but it’s more likely that the 25-year-old outfielder gets shipped away. He could probably be moved for a lot less than Nolasco, since he’s coming off of a disappointing season. Morrison also made just $480,000 in 2012 and he is not yet eligible for arbitration. Morrison had a solid year in 2011, hitting .247 with 23 home runs and 72 RBI. His OPS of .798 was average, but he played in 123 games and it was a solid showing for his first season in the big leagues. But the Kansas City native underachieved in 2012, as he played in 93 games and hit just .230 with 11 home runs and 36 RBI...

  • Loria should really sell the team, Marlins have gotten good players but under this owner the vibes are negative. for the team, this guy has obvious reasons for the team. He has tricked the miami people and said that he was broke to get the park and filed millions and millions of dollars in profit. Give it up and sell the team. Its hasnt worked because owner ship sucks.bottom line.
