Miami Marlins: 5 Possible Moves After Winter Meeting Spending Spree

The national media has indicated Marlins will shift focus to Fielder, while local beat writers have been informed that would be case.

The Marlins were a slam dunk for winning the offseason, but the Angels grabbed the ball and made it a whole new ballgame. 

Even after losing out on signing C.J. Wilson and Albert Pujols, who signed a mega-deal (10 years for $254 million), the Marlins came away with the exceptional triple play of Heath Bell, Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle

Instantly, Bell solidifies the bullpen and Reyes gives the Marlins a better spark plug to go alongside Bonifacio while patching up the vacancies (third base and center field).

Buehrle gives the Marlins not only a veteran presence but a durable, slick-fielding pitcher who might end up as team's No. 2 starter. 

However, the Marlins are not done. 

If Loria's aggressive offer to Wilson (six years for $98 million) was any indication, he wants to add one more piece. Preferably a starter but at this point, the free agency route is rather thin with aging, injury-prone or inconsistent choices (Edwin Jackson, Roy Oswalt, Hiroki Kuroda) left for grabs. 

The Marlins will have to be creative in satisfying their needs for another starter. Here are five possible routes the team might explore later this offseason.
