Take this for what it’s worth. Dontrelle Willis’ agent, Matt Sosnick, ran into former Marlins GM Larry Beinfest in the supermarket recently. Beinfest basically said that the Marlins plan on Willis remaining with the team, so the two sides should plan to discuss a contract as usual. For Sosnick that means late November talks.
Willis will earn more than $7MM next year, which will probably comprise a fifth or so of the team’s payroll. Most likely new Marlins GM Michael Hill will listen to offers on both Willis and Cabrera and trade one of them.
