Geoff Jenkins Could Wind Up on Marlins Radar

               The Marlins, who are sniffing around for a lefty bat off the bench  might have some interest in Geoff Jenkins, who was released Tuesday by the Phillies. The 34-year-old corner outfielder threw up some pretty consistent numbers year after year with the Milwaukee Brewers, but saw those figures dip in a less-prominent role with the Phillies last season.

               Perhaps more enticing to the Marlins: Philly is on the hook for the remainder of his contract, which calls for him to receive $6.75 million this season and a $1.25 million club-option buyout in 2010. From the Marlins' perspective, he could be this year's version of Luis Gonzalez -- only seven years younger. Gonzalez, who is still floating out there as a free agent, has been linked again to the Marlins. But I'm told the interest in him is "minimal" and that Jenkins would be a more intriguing option.

if they both are available for the minimum then why not scoop up both of them?
