Leo Nunez, Edward Mujica Sign 1-Year Deals

       Two down, two to go.

       The Marlins on Monday avoided arbitration with two of their relievers by signing Leo Nunez and Edward Mujica to 1-year deals. Nunez will receive $3.65 milion plus peformance bonuses based on games finished.Leo Mujica will get $800,000.

        That leaves the Marlins with two arbitration-eligible players, starter Anibal Sanchez and reliever Clay Hensley. If the team is unable to work out deals with the two pitchers before noon Tuesday, they''ll exchange figures and go to arbitration to determine their 2011 salaries.

         Nunez will enter spring training as the team's closer while Mujica is a key piece in the bullpen rebuild, obtained with fellow reliever Ryan Webb in the Cameron Maybin trade with San Diego.

Okay, now we can trade Nunez and get a quality 3rd Basemen. Is it too late to bring back Lowell??

I JOIN THE MANY MARLIN FANS THAT ARE TOTALLY DISGUSTED WITH THE SIGNING OF NUNEZ. AFTER HAVING AN ERA FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST NUNEZ IS REWARDED WITH A RAISE. WHEN NUNEZ FAILED, HENSLEY TOOK OVER AND DID A MASTERFUL JOB. IT SHOULD BE HENSLEY'S JOB TO LOSE NOT NUNEZ. WITH ALL THE ADDITIONS OF QUALITY RELIEF PITCHERS THE MARLINS ACQUIRED, NUNEZ SHOULD BE A NONENTITY.

NUNEZ ERA FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST WAS OVER 9.00
HENSLEY ERA WAS STEADY.GIVE HENSLEYA CHANCE TO CLOSE.
