• The Marlins, who haven't had serious trade talks yet on Dan Uggla and Jeremy Hermida, are preparing a multiyear offer for Josh Johnson.

I thought this was appropriate to post in the MLB forum as many MLB people give the Marlins **** for being so frugal.

The deal I have heard is said to be around 4 years $50M

I blame the Yankees if they can't keep Uggla and Hermida

Right, and it'll be a backloaded deal so that they can trade him with 2 years, $28 million left.

The Marlins would be stupid to not lock him up.

If they were to trade him they would get something in the range of 4 top prospects. They will just give him the deal to raise his stock even more.

I hope the Marlins can get better attendance in their new park if so, they might be able to push payroll to 60M. With a bigger payroll they would be NASTY!

Let me ask you this....If the Yanks were to sign him people would give them alot of crap about signing a player now that the Marlins are signing a player why don't we give them crap for it????? The Yanks do have a high payroll for signing players because they want to win and care about there organization the Marlins don't pay and don't care for theres. You can come with good arguments that the Marlins have won WS etc but the Yankees try to put themselves in position every year is all Im saying is the difference. Why not give the Marlins hell for finally signing there talent?

JJ is still in his arbitration years, he isn't a free agent, so New York can't even offer Johnson a contract.

What's wrong with the nickname? The Marlin's announcers use the nickname JJ all the time.

You kinda missed my point but it might be the way I worded it also. Let me try it this way. People get on the Yankees for having this high payroll but actually the Yankees have more homegrown talent on there roster then the Phillies at this point and the Yankees payroll is higher. The Yankees keep players and give them big contracts i.e. Jeter, Rivera, Posada, Cano, Pettite etc. JJ signing with the Marlins could be considered the same paying more to keep a homegrown talent. Is JJ a product of the Marlins????

Sure would be nice to see the Marlins start paying their players and try to keep them long term.

I guess him and Hanley are going to be the franchise.

Just to be clear, who says fans arent critical of teams that cheat their fans with a low payroll? While Im no fan of the competitive advantage larger market teams enjoy, I have equal if not more scorn for ownership in Miami or Pittsburgh who've stolen hope from their fans with their excess frugality.
