    Next Year?

    With all our arbitration eligible players, who do you guys see returning next season. I see our team as like this next season

    1B=Cantu
    2B=Coughlin
    3B=McPherson
    SS=Hanley(duh)
    LF=Willingham*/Ross
    CF=Maybin
    RF=Hermida*/Ross

    *=1 of those 2 wont return.


    Pitching
    1.Josh Johnson
    2.Ricky Nolasco
    3.Andrew Miller
    4.Anibal Sanchez
    5.Chris Volstad

    I therefore don't see Uggla, Willingham/Hermida(one of them), Jacobs, or Olsen coming back next season.

    I think we might move a couple of them.. but not 4. Olsen is probably gone b/c of the other pitching we have in the minors. I like the chances of hermida being back. I think Willingam, Uggla, and Jacobs are all free game to be gone...

    Willingham goes before Hermida, IMO.

    And is it me or does anyone want Cantu locked up for 2 or 3 more years?

    I wouldn't mind having Cantu back. He's arbitration eligible, and he seems to be the best stop-gap for Dominguez.

    I don't see Hermida going anywhere, or Uggla for that matter. I'd like to see Willingham stick around but I would understand if they didn't choose that route. Jacobs and Olsen are most likely on the out (as much as I've grown to like Olsen the past couple weeks)

    I think Cantu is back and Ross in gone. Olsen MIGHT be gone and Hammer and Hermida will be here. Uggla is definitely staying.

    I wouldn't be so sure about Hermida staying, the fact that we were willing to trade him tells you something...but I'm not sure either way.

    I'm pretty sure Jake will be gone and Cantu will take over at 1st with possibly Mcphearson covering third...

    We were trading him for Manny not shopping him around. He does have potential I just don't know what the threshold of the team is waiting for it to click.

    Well if the organization was sure he would turn into a Hanley-like player we wouldn't have been willing to part with him... but I guess the disappointment in him is growing.

    The reason I don't see Uggla coming back is cuz he will have a ton of value, he'll be really expensive, and Chris Couglhin is nearing MLB ready status.

    Haha... I meant that Uggla, Jacobs, or Willingham COULD be gone...but I dont think that they all will be. I expects Olsen and 1-2 of the others to be gone...not all four...

    Dude, "Hanley-like" players are few and far between . . . and the Front Office doesn't have to be "sure" of anything to make that move - You can be willing to part with Hermida, a stud who hasn't yet panned out, in return for Manny Ramirez a perennial All-Star, and still believe in Hermida's talent . . .

    I think they bring back Olsen for another year. The pitching is deep but I wouldn't trust them all for next season.

    Uggla, Hermida I believe will be back.

    What's Mcpherson's contract like? I thought it was a one-year deal.

    I thought Coughlin was still a few years away from making the big leagues, and I don't expect the Marlins to push him any faster when they have a fan favorite and a solid player in Dan Uggla.

    It was a 1 year contract, but I believe he's still up for arbitration?
