LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andrew Friedman has thoroughly overhauled a 94-win team in his first two months running the Los Angeles Dodgers. None of his myriad moves made a bigger, more baffling splash than his trade of popular slugger Matt Kemp and $32 million to a division rival for what might be no more than half of a catching platoon.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Casey McGehee knows how much Pablo Sandoval meant to the Giants and the city of San Francisco. Even living across the country in Miami, he understood the affinity for the Kung Fu Panda in his native Bay Area.

If one ripple from the thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations means baseball prospects get off the island and into the major leagues without payoffs to smugglers and threats from kidnappers, it’s hard to see the downside.

Credit where it’s due, the Miami Marlins are doing some serious work this winter and seem to be on track to field a very competitive team in 2015.  It would also appear they’re on top of their social media game. On Wednesday, the team announced its most recent acquisition on Twitter, that of free-agent slugger Michael Morse on a two-year, $16 million contract, in a way that would only truly make sense under the circumstances: Morse code.  You’ll want to make sure the Vine is unmuted for full effect. If you’re in a spot where that’s not possible, like say a work cubicle or a school play, the Marlins provided the code in text form.   Sorry, that was confusing. Translation: — .- .-. .-.. .. -. … / … .. –. -. / — — .-. … . — Miami Marlins (@Marlins) December 17, 2014 Impressive, but Big League Stew would a little further with the Morse code in reporting his trade from the Seattle Mariners to the Baltimore Orioles back in 2013. Check that out here .  Now, here’s the full translation of the Morse signing by Miami And now the real translation… OFFICIAL: The #Marlins have signed Michael Morse! Welcome home, @MCode38 ! #MorseCode pic.twitter.com/LXBiIVQm4o — Miami Marlins (@Marlins) December 17, 2014 Translating further, the Miami Marlins are serious about contending in 2015. That’s the clear message they’ve been sending through their series of aggressive moves, which of course started by signing Giancarlo Stanton to a monumental contract in November. They’ve also been aggressive in trading for pieces like Dee Gordon and Mat Latos. Now they’ve added Morse, which t hey believe will help solidify their offenses new look.  As always though, one can’t help but wonder if the tone will be completely different a year or two down the road. Mixed signals always seemed to be more of their thing, so the fact we’re getting clear positive signals will understandably be greeted with a pessimistic response.  BLS H/N: Cut 4 More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.
