08:17 AM ET 09.13 | If indeed Miami is moving in a new direction, Jose Fernandez may help lead it. Fernandez's rapid ascent through two low minor-league levels this season has elevated his name into front-office discussions about the composition of the Marlins' starting rotation in 2013. He almost certainly will start the season at Class AA Jacksonville. But if he dominates Southern League hitters the way he did batters this season in the South Atlantic and Florida State leagues, the Marlins could promote him as early as May or June. ... Fernandez -- drafted at 19 out of Tampa's Alonso High School in 2011, three years after he defected from Cuba on a raft -- has proven to be a winner so far.

Right now, pretty much anyone could break into Miami's rotation.

Breaking and entering is a popular past time in Miami.

It was a good story until you said he would probably start the season at Double A next year. There are a lot of Jose out there, but also the farther he goes up the betters will also be better.

When I saw that Pic above, I at first thought Ozzie was announcing his retirement from baseball and entrance into the WWE (Wrestleing) with 'The CLAW as his finishing hold.


Guess not! Too bad :^(

Do we know for sure that he's as young as he says he is?

September 13, 2012  01:07 PM ET

He's actually 38 years old.

How about replacing Guillen. Pretty sure he could coach in Cuba.

Is it just me, or does it appear like he's describing grabbing on to a stripper's hooters?

...just saying...
