Odds & Ends: Marlins, Rangers, Injuries

Another round of links…

  • MLB.com's Joe Frisaro takes a more in-depth look at Marlins president Larry Beinfest's comments on the possibility of long-term extensions for pitchers Ricky Nolasco and Josh Johnson.  "With a new stadium set to open in 2012," Frisaro writes, "the Marlins are in a better position to sign players to multi-year deals."
  • Matthew Pouliot of NBC Sports continues his "Restoring the Rosters" series with a look at the Rangers' potential 25-man roster.  Pouliot is now halfway through the interesting collection of columns.
  • Bob Harkins, also writing for NBC Sports, suggests the Phillies are a good match for all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman, who has reportedly been placed on waivers by the Brewers.
  • Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post notes, via Twitter, that the payroll "just for Mets players on the DL would be higher than the total budgets of 17 other teams."  Tough times in Queens.
  • Ben Nicholson-Smith hosted his weekly live chat on MLBTR Tuesday afternoon.  If you missed it, we've got it archived for your viewing pleasure.
