Marlins, Dan Uggla Begin Contract Talks

    The Herald's Barry Jackson is reporting that the Marlins have begun talks with second baseman Dan Uggla on a contract extension but that the two sides are "far apart" at the moment. Keep in mind that it's early in the process.

    According to Jackson, the Marlins "appear willing to pay in the three-year, $30 million range," well below what Uggla's agent is seeking. Uggla has another year of salary arbitration remaining with the Marlins before he can become a free agent.

 The Marlins are also expected to make pitcher Ricky Nolasco an offer on a multi-year deal. Nolasco can be a free agent after 2012.

Keeping Uggs and Ricky would be great!!!!!
Go Fish!!!!!


Randy St Claire is a waste... Nobody wanted the guy and as we have seen we now know why because he can't do anything but hurt a staff.. Loria loves him because nobody wanted him and he could pay him cheaply.. Lorias kind of hire...Nunez is at best a 7th inning guy... Jeffrey loria.. You have to PAY to have a closer who makes opposing hitters think and Second guess not a guy who throws changeups because he loves the pitch..


If I was josh Johnson I would be getting prilosac for whats gonna become a bleeding ulcer from watching this team ruin his starts


The guy is arguably the best pitcher in the game... He's your horse.. Under 100 pitches... I like Edwin rodriguez but the guy is way in over his head and I can assure you other "aces" In the league go for the complete game that's why you pay your ace what you pay him!!!!!


If I was Uggla I would make Schnoria and PeeWee the Putz pay thru their noses to sign me,or I go the free agent route to a big market contending every year team...not this circus Los Miami Expos run by a bunch of el cheapo clowns...

I Bury Paul

OMG Los Miami Expos is painfully funny, because it's damn true. Nunez has the speed, but lacks the guts. He's a mess, where was the needed help at the trade deadline?
