Former Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez, who resigned from his post last June, questioned why the Marlins would sign an All-Star shortstop in Jose Reyes when they already had one in Hanley Ramirez. Rodriguez offered his observations during an interview with MLB Network Radio Wednesday with Jim Memolo and Todd Hollandsworth.

"I think it's going to be [a] very interesting situation, to say the least," Rodriguez said. "Knowing Hanley, he's a very proud player. It's going to be very hard for him to move out of shortstop. He's a big league shortstop. He's an All-Star shortstop. In my opinion I think they are going to have a tough time trying to convince him to move to third base. Even if he does that, move to third base, beginning of the season, I think it's going to be very interesting to watch how everything develops, how Reyes takes the front pages and how the people start talking about the All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes. It will be very interesting to see how Hanley will handle all that. In my opinion I don't think that was the right move to sign Jose Reyes. You already have an All-Star shortstop. Why spend money on another All-Star shortstop? Why not put the money in another player like Albert Pujols or somebody else, one front-line pitcher?"
