Luis Gonzalez?

The rumor is that the Marlins are trying to sign Luis Gonzalez to play some LF and 1B. 
 This seems like an odd move, unless there are more moves in the works. Where will Willingham play? Jacobs has not been a success so far, but are they giving up on him? What about Ross, who had such a fabulous second half?  Who is going to play 3rd? 
Gonzalez made over $7 mill with the Dodgers last year, and $10 mill with Arizona two years ago.  In his prime, in the late 90s, he was very very good. He only struck out about every 9 plate appearances. If they sign him, maybe he can teach Uggla how not to strike out.
