Marlins Sign Anibal Sanchez, Clay Hensley

      There will be no arbitration acrimony involving the Marlins and any unsigned players in February.

 Anibal                                                                                             The team on Tuesday signed their two remaining arbitration-eligible players, with starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez and reliever Clay Hensley working out 1-year deals. Sanchez agreed for $3.7 million and up to $50,000 in performance incentives. Hensley agreed for $1.4 million, plus incentives worth up to $50,000.

        Tuesday's signings coming one day after the Marlins worked out deals with two other arbitration-eligible pitchers, relievers Leo Nunez ($3.65 million) and Edward Mujica ($800,000).

       Had the Marlins not reached agreement with those players, the sides would have exchanged salary proposals, with an independent arbitrator choosing one or the other following a hearing in February.

Leo Nunez 3.65 million = disgusting, don't need stats to tell me this guy was a terrible "closer" last year.

How can the Marlins Management willingly give a guy so much for a 1/2 inning worth of work but not an impact player say 10 million for 9 innings?

The should have signed Soriano for the closer role.

I join the majority of the Marlin fans in objecting to the signing of Leo Nunez. When Nunez failed during the crucial month of August(ERA OVER 9.00). CLAY HENSLEY CAME TO THE RESCUE AND EARNED THE CLOSING ROLE. WITH THE ADDITIONS OF ALL THE QUALITY RELIEF PITCHERS NUNEZ SHOULD BE A NONENTITY.

Nunez is the future,he is young and he has unlimited talent he just needs to learn to use what he has.Hensley is a pitcher who will help the young ones learn.All the genus analist say our young fielders need a vetran presence to guide them.Well the bullpen needs a guy like Hensley to help them learn and mature.We have a good bullpen they just need to jell

CHRIS COGLAND IT IS A BAD CHOICE FOR PLAY CF; HE ISN'T, HE IS 2ND BASE PLAYER, ALSO HE UNDERWENT KNEE SURGERY SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, AND CF POSITION DEMAND MUCH LEGS EFFORT (REMEMBER PRESTON WILSON CASE)
