On Yoenis Cespedes, Marlins To Be 'Aggressive Right To The Point Of Stupidity'

As we've talked about, Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is nearly a free agent. Once he is a free agent, the bidding war will begin. We've long figured that the Miami Marlins would figure prominently in said bidding war. David Samson didn't exactly downplay the idea.

From the Sun Sentinel:

"Aggressive right to the point of stupidity, but not quite there," said Samson, characterizing the club’s planned pursuit. "We think he’s a perfect fit for us, but it has to be sane. [We've] expressing interest, going to visit, making it very clear to his representatives and to him and his family that we think he should not be anywhere other than Miami. As a Cuban and someone in the DR, it makes perfect sense. We have a perfect position for him to play. It would be great."

"Aggressive right to the point of stupidity" is just such a perfect way to describe the Marlins' entire approach to the offseason. So of course that'll carry over to the Cespedes sweepstakes. There's no guarantee that the Marlins will sign Cespedes, of course, but they'll try their damnedest, and these aren't your grandpappy's Marlins anymore. These Marlins are...aggressive right to the point of stupidity. Man that's perfect.
