Marlins To Make a Run at James Shields

With a thin free agent starting pitching market, the Marlins’ best bet may be to add depth via trade. One name that Buster Olney brought up in his blog for ESPN insiders over the weekend was James Shields. According to Olney, the Marlins are considering making a “serious run” at the Rays’ Shields.

Shields would be an ideal fit for the Marlins. He’s at worst a solid No. 2 starter minus the salary exposure that would accompany a free agent like C.J. Wilson. Shields’ contract has three more club option years (2012-’14) at $7 million, $9 million and $14 million, respectively. - Sun Sentinal

This would be a good move for the Marlins.  They have a good pitching staff already, and play in a pitcher friendly park.  Leaving the AL East would help Shields a lot.  However, the biggest problem the Marlins have is with their offense.  Besides this move, they should be looking to bring in some bats.
