Marlins: the price for Cody Ross is "very, very high"

Jul 19, 2010, 1:14 PM EDT

That’s what Buster Olney is saying the Marlins are saying.  And I can only think that the reason the Marlins are saying that is because the Braves — a division and geographic rival — are the team that has been mentioned with the greatest interest in the Ross.

Don’t get me wrong, Ross is a nice player. But he’s not worth a king’s ransom. For the Marlins to be saying he is is because (a) they really do want to make the Braves pay through the nose for him; or (b) if they do unload him to a division rival, they want to portray the haul they get in return for him in those terms, whether or not it truly is that rich a haul.

    My gut feeling is that Cantu and Volstad are the ones being shopped the hardest, with Nolasco, Ross and Uggla behind them. Schuerholz is perfectly adept at rigging a threeway with some AL team so that the Bravos wind up with Ross anyway, if they really want him, without weakening themselves in the process.

    The GM for the Marlins is very, very high.
