The Marlins are taking a step toward being the best team in the majors this season. As teams like the Nationals, Dodgers, and Angels continue to perform well, the Marlins will continue to have a high payroll. A recent salary cap increase helped, but the Marlins have been able to maintain solid attendance numbers.
Last season, the Marlins’ payroll was set at $60 million. Now it is expected to be $81 million, and as far as I can tell, it’s not about to change any time soon. As far as I can tell, the Marlins don’t intend to make significant changes to their payroll in the near future.
The Marlins have a pretty good deal coming to them as well. Last season, the Marlins had to pay the $1.9 million payroll of the Marlins and the Washington Nationals. They have also had to pay the $3.5 million payroll of the Cincinnati Reds, the $3.2 million payroll of the Texas Rangers, and the $1.2 million payroll of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Of course, the difference is that the Marlins have a lot of flexibility in the contract situation. They can sign anyone they want to, and can also take their new money and use it to sign players. But there is no guarantee that the Marlins will sign anyone, just like last year. They have a pretty good deal coming to them.
With the Marlins’ new deal, they will save $3.75 million in salaries this year ($2 million from the Reds and $1 million from the Rangers). This is a lot of money, but the Marlins will probably spend it on more players, including prospects.The Marlins will also have a lot of flexibility in how their money is used. They can use the money to pay for salaries or even sign free agents.
If you are a Marlins fan, then you probably know that the Reds have a pretty good offer, and the Rangers have a pretty good offer as well. So while it’s nice that the Marlins are making a few million dollars more this year, I’d hate to see them spend a large amount of money on a single player and then have to cut a player loose. Even if it isn’t the Marlins, it’s still going to be a lot of money for the teams to take care of.
The Marlins are obviously not going to take care of the Reds or Rangers. They are going to make a deal with the Marlins for a player, and the Marlins just might, but they might also take care of you.
As it turns out, the Marlins got a deal in the off-season. The Reds gave up first baseman Jason Heyward for an extra $3.75 million, and the Rangers gave up second baseman Prince Fielder for an extra $4.5 million. The Marlins got Heyward for a little under $2 million, and the Rangers got Fielder for about $3 million.
This is the big one. I really can’t believe this is happening. I’ve been following this story for about a week, and just a few hours ago I picked up a big, fat, red “N” on ESPN.com. I was in a hurry, and I didn’t want to miss it. I’m not sure how MLB will react, I’m sure some people will blame the owners, but I’m sure the fans will get mad.
It is not a good day for baseball fans. Not only did the MLB announce that its owners would not pay their players $14.5 million per year, but they also announced that the players would have to sign a new deal. The only two options the players had were to either sign a $15 million a year contract for next season or accept a cut in salary (and the owners, for their part, decided they wanted to do away with the salary cap).
