Of course the Marlins are interested in Yuniesky Betancourt

Yesterday I poked a little fun at the Marlins’ reported interest in “proven run-producer” Juan Uribe, so of course I have to post this from Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald:

The Marlins have inquired about free agent third baseman Yuniesky Betancourt … Betancourt can play every infield position but the Marlins are considering him –– and several others–primarily for third base. … Betancourt figures to be a less costly alternative to Juan Uribe, another free agent third baseman the Marlins are considering.

Poor man’s Juan Uribe is honestly a pretty apt description of Yuniesky Betancourt.
