    Only person smiling in any of those pictures, seems to be Mike Redmond. Who can blame them.

    As per the Joe Rose Show (WQAM 560AM) Giancarlo Stanton won't address the media until Friday (at the earliest). Claims he walked right past the (sparse) media members at camp, and ignored all questions except to say he would possibly talk on Friday. Also of note, José Ferñandez was asked about what he thought of Mike Redmond being his new skipper and he said (paraphrased), "who is that ? Oh you mean that guy ?, I don't know I just met him a few minutes ago".

    Great........

    Well, I imagine the rest of them aren't smiling because they're working. It's all action shots, man. Come on.

    Hey @JoeRoseShow take it easy on that Cuban defector for not knowing who Redmond was. You know all you white people look alike to us.

    No one will comment on Fernandez because no one cares. It's not a big deal.

    What comment would you want?

    1) We don't know what he said

    2) Who cares what he said?

    What the hell does it matter?

    You're trying to make news of stuff that isn't news.

    When you say Fernandez out loud, were you pronouncing it Fern-yandez?

    1st, I just copied how I had seen it spelled from someone else. If it was wrong, I won't spell it that way again.

    I'll have to see if WQAM has the clip up on their website. They have been talking about it all morning on the Joe Rose show ( http://wqam.com/ ) He's on for another hour so you can hear it, because they are playing it over and over.....so hilarious. Star prospect and he doesn't even know who his manager is. It can only happen with the Marlins.

    I'm not interested in hearing it.

    It can happen elsewhere too.

    Probably has.

    We probably don't know about it because it wasn't interesting then either.

    Why should Jose Fernandez know Mike Redmond outside of meeting him 5 minutes prior? And like emkay said, Redmond isn't his manager anyway

    The way we go thru managers Redmond might not even be here next year when Fernandez is up Let's just hope Redmond does what Loria says


    Also Jose Ceda is has been throwing off the mound since Jan. He could be another nice option for us if he can finally stay healthy

    Regardless, he literally met the guy 5 minutes prior

    what do you want him to say?

    The more troubling thing for me isn't whether that was said. If they had dinner two days before the trade it shows you how quickly the deal happened. No shopping of players, no sleeping on it - it just happened. That's what I hate. No thought process.

    The Reyes part of the "deal" wasn't even discussed at first,it was only discussed when Toronto asked about him and said they would take his whole salary plus a Top Prospect for him. If Toronto says NO to taking his salary plus including Hech and Marisnick then Reyes is our SS and the guy the board wanted would have been here instead playing C

    Honestly I don't think they wanted to trade Reyes but were offered something to good to pass on. Plus what is the point in paying a guy 100 million when by the time the team is good again he will be a FA

    Bleh.

    You don't take the first offer you get on Jose Reyes. That's stupid.

    Completely agreed.
