Pudge Prefers Fish

MLB Trade Rumors reports:

David Quinones of the Miami Herald talked to free agent catcher Ivan Rodriguez, who said, "We have something going on with the Marlins, but I'm not too sure where we are right now." Based on his home in Miami and World Series season with the team, Rodriguez would like to play again for the Marlins. MLB.com's Joe Frisaro seems to like the Marlins' chances. He says the holdup is playing time rather than money, though.

Pudge added that two or three other teams are in the mix. SI.com's Jon Heyman believes the Astros are still in, and Jim Baumbach of Newsday reported that the Mets are scouting him.

Should be noted that in the SI article Jon Heyman notes that the Fish are still scouting and shown interst in catcher John Baker. (I can't seem to get italics off)

Pudge states that it is a playing time issue not a money issue....so, soon we should see him price himself out the Astros range, then subsequently sign with Florida. He will then state that he likes to play at home, The Fish have more potential (younger players) and he wants to win a championship.
