  • Randy St. Claire, who was fired by Washington in June, is in the mix to be Florida's next pitching coach.
  •'s Marlins beat reporter Joe Frisaro answers a number of reader questions, from whether Jorge Cantu will be back in 2010 (Frisaro thinks so) to whether Dan Uggla will be traded (Frisaro also thinks so).
