09:35 AM ET 01.06 | The Marlins have unsuccessfully tried to trade for several third-base prospects in recent months because they're not convinced Zack Cox is the longterm answer. Cox, who will start 2013 in the minors, hit .253 with one homer and seven errors in 23 games at Double A after the Marlins acquired him from St. Louis.

After spending the biggest part of the 12 season at Triple A Cox got a wake call after being traded to the Fish and was sent to Doubled A to finish the season and those long buss rides which goes with it.

"they're not convinced Zack Cox is the longterm answer."

The real question is why would they ever consider him a long term solution.

The Marlins can still succeed in Miami, but not with that ownership. Bud Selig, if he had a pair, would force the sale of the team.

that would be the day,, till then we must wait patiently,,,,,

the marlins got two cards to play them well in the right hand,,giancarlo stanton should bring them plenty help from any major league team, plus logan morrrinson could give them the uppercutt with another good prospects in return,,,

By question to the Fish is why did they sign Polanco if they thought he could not play third base.

Gyrko plays thirdbase, and he rakes, him and some pitchers for Stanton, problems solved.

Isn't a long term solution to any of the Marlin's problems a contradiction? How is it that the Marlin's owner isn't being investigated for fraud in connection with suckering Miami and/or Dade County into building a new stadium?
