The Marlins are trend setters again

When the season started, the Marlins were the only team in baseball whose highest paid player was a relief pitcher. The Giants are the first, but doubtless not the last team, to copy the savvy Beinfest's strategy.  
As always, the Marlins come up with these innovations within severe salary constraints
--Gregg makes about $2,5 million on a one year deal, while Zito makes close to $15 million this year, with another 4 or 5 years at the same level to come. 
 The Marlins record is 15-10; the Giants are 12-15.
