5 Offseason Moves That Could Take Miami to the 2013 Playoffs

There isn't much to say about the Miami Marlins' disappointing 2012 season.

Nothing really turned out the way the team expected. Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez are gone. Their youth movement that involved Logan Morrison and Giancarlo Stanton sort of worked out while both players dealt with injuries throughout the year. Stanton was able to blossom into the impact player many expected while Morrison did not.

The marquee free agents didn't quite pan out as planned. Jose Reyes is currently hitting .289, well below the .337 AVG he hit last year with the New York Mets.

Heath Bell has been a disaster with six blown saves, accounting for numerous potential Marlins wins. Bell has also compiled a career-high 5.69 ERA so far this season.

Mark Buehrle has actually been one of the few players worth the heavy contracts the Marlins shelled out this past offseason. He has done exactly what the Marlins brought him to Miami to do—he's on pace to pitch over 200 innings and win 14 to 15 games.

The Marlins have practically thrown in the towel for this 2012 season, but here are five offseason moves that could help take the team to the 2013 playoffs.
