Cha-Ching: Marlins Receive Holiday Spending $$$$$

 Just in time for the holidays, Marlins players will be receiving a tidy little bonus -- specifically, $10,424 per full share -- for finishing second in the NL East last season. While the amount pales in comparison to that received by the Yankees, each of whom is receiving more than $365,000 for winning the World Series, it beats an empty card.

The money comes from a percentage of the playoff gate receipts.

 As a team, the Marlins received nearly $600,000 and awarded 49 full shares, 7.28 partial shares, and seven cash awards.

  -- The Dan Uggla trade talks should heat up again when baseball executives gather in Indianapolis next week for the annual Winter Meetings. Not much has changed on the Uggla front since the G. M. meetings in Chicago earlier this month. Teams that have expressed interest include the Baltimore Orioles, San Francisco Giants,, Boston Red Sox and New York Mets.

  -- Don't look for the Marlins to offer salary arbitration to any of their four free agents -- Kiko Calero, Brendan Donnelly, Ross Gload and Nick Johnson -- at Tuesday's deadline. However, the Marlins remain very much interested in re-signing Gload to a two-year deal similar to the one granted last year to his mirror opposite on the bench, Wes Helms.
