    Marlins bringing up top pitching prospect Jose Fernandez. He hasn't pitched above A-ball, so it will be interesting to see how he fares.

    #Marlins will limit Jose Fernandez to 150-170 innings. Beinfest expects him to log them all in majors.

    This is great! This thread is about to end! I love it! It's like being a kid just before Christmas morning! Amazing how I can get so excited to watch other guys play a game...

    Jason Bay does indeed make the Mariners Opening Night roster while Casper Wells is DFA'd.

    Yeah, good luck Fish! Maybe they are just hoping Stanton will clear the bases and Placido will be like another leadoff guy? Stanton is awesome! Polanco is just getting old...

    Hopefully you all will have better luck with him than the Mets did! He may have just been one of those guys that couldn't play with all the distractions there. Or maybe it is a sign that he is done...

    Well I think he just lost it. He did good for a season and a half in Boston. If you can perform there, you can perform anywhere. He hit .267/.384/.537, 36 HR 119 RBI in with Boston in 2009.

    Hopefully he gets it turned around for the Mariners this season. I hate seeing that do poorly.

    I agree. I hate to see guys fall flat like that. It seemed amazing how he went from a solid middle of the order guy to someone who couldn't hit at the Mendoza Line! I never had anything against Bay, really didn't know much about him when he was in Pittsburgh, and rooted for him while he was bashing in Boston. It's weird how so many stars have signed with the Mets and done just terrible.

    I don't agree with choosing Bay over Wells. Wells is younger, more versatile and under club control. Bay may have had the better spring, but nothing that has happened the past 3 years suggest that Bay has anything left. The Doug Fister trade looks even worse now.

    I read on either espn.com or mlb.com that the Mariners were bringing in the OF walls this season, so that may help all of their sluggers. Who knows, it could just be a change of scenery that will get him going again. Maybe not. Not a lot of pressure or expectations for that team this year, I don't think, so that could help too.
