Well, it was predicted weeks ago, finally happens.
This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.
If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.
Man, that's going to be a huge mistake after a handful of years. Better them than the Reds imo.
Will win and flip work with a new stadium?

Conceit is self given: be careful.
I wonder what this means for Matt Dominguez. If the Marlins are as high on them as they claim to be, maybe they'd be best served moving HanRam to second base when Omar Infante's contract is up.
If they manage to get a high-end starter, I'd say they're in pretty good shape for a wild card berth next year.

I don't see anyway he lasts more than 3 years with the Marlins. I give them credit for 'changing the perception', but I think once the Miami hype wears off I believe they'll go back to being the same old Marlins with a slightly higher budget.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
If they add Buerhle or Wilson, they are a favorite for the Wild Card. I love what the Marlins are selling right now.
Just imagine if they do sign Pujols...
They should, they don't need to, but they should, just for the sheer spectacle. I imagine Sanchez and Coughlan and Infante could be packaged for a good pitcher or reliever or catcher, whatever.
Would they bat Pujols 3 or 4th?
If they signed Pujols their payroll would be huge and they'd be counting on a healthy Johnson to make a meaningful rotation. Perhaps they'd want a three way deal with the Reds for a CF or catcher while getting payroll relief and a young ace type from another team. Or maybe off load Nolasco for Volquez just to make room for Albert. You know I'm working my way towards another Hanley trade...
They'd package Gaby or Lomo with prospects for a pitcher. Infante isn't going anywhere. Coghlan has no value right now.
What's their upper limit for payroll? I figure they're at about 70-75 million before arb is settled. Another big FA will rocket them past 100 right?
