Marlins announce 71-player spring roster

        There should be no trouble finding a good seat at Roger Dean Stadium most days when the Marlins play there this spring. But the Marlins' clubhouse looks like it'll be a tight squeeze. The Marlins announced a spring roster totaling 71 players.

         I'm not sure if that's a club record of some sort. But I can't remember the number ever being that large. In addition to those on the 40-man roster, the Marlins have invited 31 others that include 17 players signed to minor league contracts and 14 organizational players.

         Making up the latter group: right-handed pitchers Michael Brady and Jose Fernandez; left-handed pitchers Adam Conley, Grant Dayton, Brian Flynn, Andrew Heaney and Raudel Lazo; catchers Wilfredo Giminez, Jake Jefferies and Jacob Realmuto; infielders Danny Black and Derek Dietrich; and outfielders Jake Marisnick and Christian Yelich.

         The list of players signed to minor league deals includes the following: right-handed pitchers Jonathan Albaladejo, John Maine, Doug Mathis, Chad Qualls, Kevin Slowey, Jordan Smith, Mitch Talbot and Michael Wuertz; left-handed pitcher Zach Phillips; catcher Craig Tatum; infielders Matt Downs, Nick Green, Kevin Kouzmanoff, Ed Lucas and Chris Valaika; and outfielders Jordan Brown and Austin Kearns.

Methuselah...Actually, there's no fool like an ignorant jerk with no life who logs onto blogs to criticize people he doesn't know because he isn't man enough to stand up to the old lady at home. Grow a pair, put the old lady in her place, and leave the rest of us alone.

Rachel is a name used by the old fart Rachel Sandstrom.


At least now I know how to spell "Methuselah", any chance he is 1 of the 71 invitees? I mean the original "Metheuselah."

Thanks Rachel!! I sincerely hope you did not give out your real name. I have mellowed to such a degree that I'm in shock that I once responded to drivel far less compelling than that of Mr. Meth.
