And this weeks list of players who maybe but really aren’t coming to the Marlins are:

  • Alex Rodriguez: The biggest prize in baseball is very expensive and some guy at CNN/Money makes a good financial argument (but not a realistic one).
  • Cliff Floyd: He’s likely to retire but would love to play for the Fish at $3MM per year (but Cody Ross gives you the same numbers for 1/10th of the price).
  • Jorge Posada: The Marlins need a catcher but this one is going to get a huge offer from the Yankees.
  • Paul Lo Duca: Catcher, again, but his health may not be worth the financial risk.
