The Marlins are saying that he is available this off season, and I think we should nab him. We can add payroll, we need a veteran presence, and it wouldn't block anyone long term. He will be 30 at the beginning of the season, so he has a few good years left. His numbers weren't all that great this year, but he's playing in a canyon, and I don't think he's happy. It would probably cost us Paul Maholm and maybe another player. We could have:

1 Tabata or Milledge- OF
2 LaRoche or Walker- 3B
3 McCutchen-CF
4 Jones- RF or 1B, depending on Clement
5 Uggla-2B
6 Clement or Milledge- Jones to first if Clement tanks
7 Doumit- C
8 Cedeno- SS

Add Alvarez to that lineup, and we could score a lot of runs.

Also, they could add one of the following pitchers from free agancy: Randy Wolf, Doug Davis, Jarrod Washburn, or Chris Capuano to bolster the left side.

But I don't care if he never gets any better. 30 HRs and 90 RBIs a year with nearly 100 BB I will take.

I think it's amazing that the Marlins view Uggla as available, especially considering they have Jack Squat (IF) playing at 3B.

Yeah, I know. Maybe their plan is to move Cantu back there and play Bonafacio at second. Then Jack Squat would be playing first.

I didn't realize Squat was with the Marlins now. I thought he was still with us, pitching out of the bullpen, pinch hitting, ....oh, never mind. Too long of a list.

Jack Squat? When did Matt Capps change his name? His pitching certainly hasnt changed with the name switch...
