It's going to be tough for the prospects that the Marlins are going to make into a team next year. They'll be thrust out there with little support and more than likely lose a lot. The veteran on the team will be like 26 years old, and the only thing going for them is that they're in it together. Not exactly the best way to break into the majors...

Thanks, I have lot going on in my life, so I'll be in and out for awhile till I get it straightened out. To be frank, I thought I would have done so already.
I'm back. Sorta.

Some Florida Paper wrote:The Marlins tendered contracts to 36 of the 37 unsigned players on their 40-man roster Tuesday, the lone exception being infielder Joe Dillon, whose rights were sold to the Yomiuri Giants of the Japanese Central League.

I vote to move them to New York... now that would be revenue sharing.

Finally, St. Louis also signed pitcher John Riedling to a minor-league contract yesterday. "So what?" you say?

Well, Riedling had been the highest-paid Marlin in 2005 to remain a Marlin so far this offseason. He made $750K in 2005, which tied him with Damion Easley for the 16th highest on the team (not including Paul Quantrill and Ron Villone whose 2005 salary, or at least the bulk of it, was paid by another team. Riedling had been listed on the Marlins roster when I investigated the payroll cuts over the past month. Somehow (was he non-tendered?) he became a free agent and signed with the Cards.

All 18 players who were on the Marlins roster in 2005 and who made at least as much as Riedling were already gone by yesterday. Now, the highest salary from 2005 that is still on the roster is Brian Moehler's $400K, just the 20th highest on the team, ignoring Quantrill and Villone (though Moehler re-signed for $1.5M in 2006). Lenny Harris ($425M in 2005) also re-signed, but to a minor-league deal, so he's not on the 40-man roster.

That means that that 69% of the Marlins 2005 payroll has now been jettisoned ($41,308,834 of $60,593,334 by my calculations). I estimate that after arbitration their payroll will be just $18,750,000, just $10M above the mandated league-minimum payroll ($8 M based on 25 players at $320K).

They just can't stop getting rid of players.
