Marlins interested in K-Rod?

The Marlins are showing interest in free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez, reports MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

Miami has been in contact with Rodriguez’s agent, Scott Boras, though nothing is imminent, according to Frisaro.

Rodriguez, 33, saved 44 games with the Brewers last season. He would add a quality and proven arm to the back of the Marlins’ bullpen. Steve Cishek remains the closer, but Rodriguez would be a strong fallback option.

The Marlins actually came into $1 million when they won their arbitration hearing with Mat Latos. The pitcher filed for $10.4 million, and Miami countered at $9.4 million. The ruling went in favor of the club.

Miami could use that extra money on Rodriguez. Rafael Soriano might be another option, Frisaro tweets.

Soriano, 35, had 32 saves with the Nationals last season. He’s totaled 117 saves over the last thee years with the Nats and Yankees. The right-hander has a lifetime 2.85 ERA over 13 seasons in the Majors.

I misread the headline. “Marlins interested in ARod.” Now that would be sumpin’. What other living human being could teach Stanton how to be the best he can be? Barry Bonds? ARod at SS/3B….filling the stands everywhere the Marlins play!!

I wish it said Marlins interested in A-Rod.
