I hope the Miami Marlins, who are known to be relatively cheap, decided to opt for the long distance service plan on their phones this year because it’s apparently ringing off the hook.

With a limited market for starting pitching, the Miami Marlins decided long ago to put Ricky Nolasco on the trading block and ever since doing so have been fielding calls from just about every team in the Majors. Now, according to a report, the Marlins want to trade Nolasco as soon as possible.

Per Buster Olney:

The Marlins have been aggressively working to move Ricky Nolasco, ASAP.

With so many teams interested in Nolasco, it seems a bit odd the Marlins would be in such a rush to move the pitcher. The San Diego Padres, New York Yankees, Washington Nationals, Los Angeles Dodgers among others have been some of the interested parties though many rival GM’s have stated they see Nolasco making his way to the San Francisco Giants, who may need the most pitching help of all – odd as that is to say.
