Federal Probe Will Not Affect Marlins' Offseason Plans

The Securities & Exchange Commission subpoenaed information - including financial records and correspondence with commissioner Bud Selig - as part of a probe into the Marlins' new stadium deal according to Charles Rabin, Martha Brannigan, and Patricia Mazzei of The Miami Herald. Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post hears from a team official that the probe will not impact their offseason plans, however.

“It will have no affect whatsoever on our roster plans,” said vice president P.J. Loyello.

The Marlins have been one of the most active teams this offseason. They've already agreed to sign Heath Bell for three years and $27MM, and they remain heavily involved in the bidding for Jose Reyes. C.J. Wilson, Mark Buehrle, and even Albert Pujols are on their radar as well.

The federal probe could take over a year to sort out, with the city and county having until January 6th to turn over correspondence and the club's financial records dating back to 2007.
