Jacque Jones signs with Marlins

As expected, Jacque Jones signed with the Marlins. They gave him a minor league contract, but that will change when he joins the club, which will probably be this weekend.

The Marlins want Jones to see some live pitching so they sent him to Jupiter to join their extended spring team. This way he can leadoff every innings and get 6 or 7 t-bats a day.

Even when Jones joins the big league club, he will get a pro-rated contract in the $280,000 range.

The Marlins attempted to trade for the outfielder last year when Jones was with the Cubs, but the Cubs pulled the plug on the deal at the last minute.

Pizzle

There's not much reason to be happy about this. I hope the Marlins dont go announcing this at the "site" of the new stadium now...wouldnt be surprised though.

Hating aside, there's probably a reason Detroit and Chicago let him go. If he's our leadoff hitter, we need to put Hanley back to the leadoff spot. I dont care if Dan Uggla gets hot hitting 6th. Hanley is hitting like .190 in the 3 hole.
