The article mentions FLL-CCS, but nothing about AA keeping it. While I have heard AA may operate the flight during peak travel periods, such as summer, it is not in reservation systems for this summer.
Don't look for MIA-MAR to become a 757 either. MIA-MAR is a pretty high-yielding route, but not very dense, and putting the 757s on it would just kill the yields. Also, from a passenger perspective, I don't know why you would hope for an AA 757. AA's 738s are, by far, their best short/medium haul aircraft.
As for MIA-VLN, it will happen, but absolutley no idea when. AA has been pushing it back often, and the rumours March 2005 start date isn't going to happen. Though I am confident you will be seeing AA at Valencia sooner than later, most likely as AA's next South American destination.

From an enthusiast perspective, the bigger the better...
As a pax, I cant tell because I havent had the chance to fly the 738. I've flown AA's 757, 767, 727, A300, MD80s, but not the 738. I will fly the 738 next month but on Delta. CCS-ATL-CCS
