Marlins Non-Tender Paulino and Veras

     No major surprises tonight as the Marlins officially parted company with catcher Ronny Paulino and reliever Jose Veras while tendering contracts to five other arbitration-eligible players and working out a one-year deal with another, reliever Burke Badenhop.

     Tendered contracts were Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez, Leo Nunez, Clay Hensley and Edward Mujica. The Marlins avoided arbitration with Badenhop by agreeing to terms with the right-hander on a one-year deal that will likely pay him in the neighborhood of $1 million.

      Paulino became expendable with the signing of John Buck while Veras was squeezed out of the bullpen picture by the addition of four relievers through a series of three trades.

I hope it's never said of me that I was "non-tendered." I'm pretty tough, but that would hurt. Sure glad I didn't have to write that hed.

We never criticize Professional Sports Administrators, but sometimes overhear
the criticisms of others, and I ask, pitcher J. Vera was a known quantity for
the club thIs season, albeit after a farm system tune-up, why not sign him and should
he prove to be excedent personnel, trade him at a later date? Save opportu-
nities are extremely important for this ball club, that does not have the habit of
exploding for runs!
