Marlins Hot Stove: Team talking to Dee Gordon about contract extension

The Marlins and Dee Gordon are taking about a possible very long deal that could keep Gordon in Miami well into his free-agent years.

The Marlins, according to sources, have offered a five-year deal, with Gordon seeking a deal of seven years. While things are said to be moving slowly, at least they are moving.

Gordon has become key part of their core, and he did it in a hurry, one big year in which he became both an offensive and defensive star. Gordon won a Gold Glove and a Silver Slugger his first year in Miami.

The Marlins have a history of paying their stars well with contract extensions, most notably Hanley Ramirez and Giancarlo Stanton.
