    Aaron Boone to the Marlins

    c/o MLB.com:
    MIAMI -- The Florida Marlins today announced the signing of infielder Aaron Boone to a one-year contract. The announcement was made by Marlins Executive Vice President and General Manager Larry Beinfest.

    Boone, 33, spent the past two seasons with Cleveland, batting .251 with seven home runs and 46 RBI in 104 games last year. He has played 969 ML games with Cincinnati (1997-2003), New York-AL (2003) and Cleveland (2005-06) and was named to the NL All-Star team in 2003. He missed the 2004 season recovering from a pair of left knee surgeries. Primarily a third baseman, Boone has also appeared at second base and shortstop in the Majors, and owns a career .264 average with 115 home runs and 499 RBI.

    In the 2003 ALCS, Boone hit a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the 11th inning of Game 7 vs. Boston, the fifth home run ever to end a post-season series, just the second in a Game 7. His father, Bob, played in the Majors from 1972-1990 and his late grandfather, Ray, played in the Majors from 1948-1960. Aaron's brother, Bret, also played in the Majors from 1992-2005. Boone resides in Paradise Valley, Arizona, with his wife, Laura, and their son, Brandon Aaron.

    Good for Aaron. He might be veteran precense to a young team.

    Good for the Reds, who had no place for him.

    Super guy, but not a super ball player.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    "fish gotta swim, Aaron's gotta swing"
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Maybe he's trying to get a hoops try out with the Heat?

    I'm really glad the Reds didn't pick him up; that kind of deal had "Reds" and "Krivsky" written all over it. In fact, I'm still stunned that it didn't happen with the Reds.

    I know you won't be stunned when we end up trading for Aaron Boone later in the year from those same Marlins.
