The Miami Marlins have reached a deal with free agent third baseman Placido Polanco, according to the Associated Press.
If you can catch and throw a baseball across the diamond, and occasionally hit big league pitching, the Miami Marlins may have a starting job for you at third base.
The Miami Marlins have succeeded in their quest to alienate fans and eliminate payroll, but they still have a rather large opening at third base that hasn’t been filled and the baseball winter meetings are about to conclude.
The Miami Marlins need to acquire a third baseman in the offseason to replace the void left by Hanley Ramirez. But would the Marlins seriously consider filling that hole with soon-to-be ex-New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez?
The Florida Marlins have a pretty big hole at third base as Spring Training continues in Jupiter, Florida. But that doesn’t mean that the Marlins don’t have a plan, namely, rookie Matt Dominguez.
