Marlins sign Juan Pierre
- Updated: November 17, 2012
Of course, Pierre actually started his career with the Colorado Rockies, but that’s neither here nor there. For the sake of this post, he’s going back to where it all started. See how much better than sounds?
So anyway, Pierre signed with a Marlins team that just traded the last of their good players not named Giancarlo Stanton. They got rid of Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson last week, and that’s after they got rid of Hanley Ramirez, who they sent to the Los Angeles Dodgers during the season.
Which means, there isn’t a lot of talent left on this squad. So, picking up an aging left fielder who hit .307 and stole 37 bases this season for $1.6 million is actually a pretty bid deal for the Marlins. It’s also a good deal for Pierre, who is bouncing from team to team on one-year deals at this point in his career.
