I'd guarantee $5 mil and go up to $12-$13 with incentives. That would be my maximum offer.

Hmmm :-?

According to Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com, Pedro Martinez is involved in an early form of negotiations with the Florida Marlins.

Rojas says, "The Marlins have spoken with Martinez's agent." The parties may meet next week.

To push Mets price up?
If this is legit, Oakland better get their a__es to the negotiating table because SURELY we can outbid Florida.

Looks like the Marlins are out of it.

MLB Trade Rumors wrote:Pedro Not A Fit For Marlins
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [January 11 at 2:35pm CST]
2:35pm: Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel also shoots down the rumor, stating that it looks like given their lack of interest in Carl Pavano, the Marlins don't want to give a rotation spot to a pitcher attempting to rebound.

Rodriguez says that Ricky Nolasco, Josh Johnson, and Chris Volstad are locks for the rotation, with Andrew Miller and Anibal Sanchez as the favorites for the other two spots. Ryan Tucker, Sean West, Frankie De La Cruz and Aaron Thompson are in the mix as well.

11:21am: Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald shoots down the rumor that Pedro Martinez is a possible fit for the Marlins. Spencer heard from multiple sources that "nothing is afoot on that front." The Marlins either have a lack of interest or a lack of money.

Spencer did hear that Pedro's interested in playing for the Marlins. One source even said they were his "first choice." However, no discussions have taken place between the Marlins and Martinez recently and none are planned.

Josh Johnson, Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez, Andrew Miller, and Chris Volstad

Having read your list of the rotation I wondered where my man Scott Olsen was. Did some Googling and see he is a Nat. Olsen, again, goes on my sleeper list...to replace Robb Nen. ;-D
