« Nate Robertson Wowed by Marlins' Grit; Team Brass Holds Closed-Door Meeting Following Loss | Main | Slumping Coghlan Sits With Sore Left Side »

Jose Veras, Emilio Bonifacio Out; Chris Leroux, Brett Carroll In


    The Marlins designated reliever Jose Veras for assignment on Wednesday and called up right-handed reliever Chris Leroux. No surprise there considering Veras has not performed, giving up at least one run in each of his four outings and toting a 15.43 ERA.

   But the Marlins didn't stop there. They optioned Emilio Bonifacio to Triple A New Orleans and reinstated outfielder Brett Carroll from the disabled list. Bonifacio, the Marlins' Opening Day third baseman last season, has been used sparingly so far, going hitless in three plate appearances.

    Carroll landed on the DL during spring training with a strained oblique. Leroux has made two relief appearances for N.O., allowing no runs on one hit and striking out two. Carroll supplies the Marlins with a bonafide fourth outfielder.

    Veras was the surviving member of the Marlins annual scavenger hunt for cheap bullpen help. The others -- Seth McClung, Mike MacDougal and Derrick Turnbow -- didn't make it out of spring training.

Before they fire Fredy they should fire Loria, along with some of the fans who only can blame the manager.
This manager took a group of nobodys last year to just two games out of the playoffs.
WERE IT NOT FOR THE FEW GAMES BLOWN BY THE BULLPEN, FLORIDA WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THERE.

FireFredy: You are less wothy than the Rats roaming around Robbie Stadium.

One of the negative of the Marlins is the amount of worthless fan that come to the stadium not to enjoy a good baseball game, but to spew their frustrations on others.
Best example is the jerk who hates Fredy for being cuban.
