Marlins not likely to sign Alfredo Gonzalez

Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez was declared a free agent by Major League Baseball earlier this week and many teams are lining up for his services. One would think the Miami Marlins would be one of them but a report from the Fish Pond says otherwise and I’m actually not surprised. Gonzalez is already 26-years old and it looks like he’ll cost a decent amount of money, for a team in all out rebuilding mode it simply makes no sense.

Marlins not likely to sign Gonzalez: Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez is gaining plenty of attention, and reportedly, the right-hander could sign next week. While the Marlins have been linked to Gonzalez, don’t expect the club to be in the mix when a final decision is made.

Gonzalez, cleared earlier this week to sign with MLB teams, reportedly could get a deal of around $60 million for five years. (Fish Pond)

The rumors going around are that Gonzalez is seeking a five year, $60 million deal. I think he’ll get more then that probably around $75 million if its a five year deal. The reason being is that all of baseball’s top spenders are fighting for him. The Atlanta Braves, New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers and the Boston Red Sox have all been linked. If they’re involved you know money is going to be getting thrown around like it was nothing.
