Marlins Agree To Terms With OF Dewayne Wise, Three Others

     It's been an extremely quiet past few weeks for the Marlins, who made most of their offseason noise in November and early December. But, with just about a month to go before pitchers and catchers report to spring training, they're still tweaking things.

     They've agreed to terms on minor-league deals with four players with big-league experience -- outfielder Dewayne Wise, infielder Joe Thurston, catcher Clint Sammons and infielder Jamie D'Antona -- in deals that were first reported by Matt Eddy of Baseball America.Wise

      Wise is the most intriguing member of the group, and could serve as either outfield insurance and/or a lefty bat off the bench. He plays all three outfield positions and has hit .308 as a pinch-hitter over his career. Wise is probably best known for a spectacular ninth-inning catch with the White Sox that preserved Mark Buehrle's perfect game in 2009.

      Thurston, who plays a variety of positions, last played in the majors with the Cardinals in 2009 when he appeared in 124 games for St. Louis. Sammons had brief stints with the Braves from 2007-09. D'Antona spent the past two seasons in Japan.

Wise is a good CF but identical to Maybin only cheaper. Lets see if he can get on base and steal some bases, then he will be a good signing. I agree though, get some quality bats LORIA, SPEND THE MONEY YOU STOLE FROM MLB AND THE FANS.
