How exactly does this qualify as "advanced metrics?"
I think that the Ruggiano for Bogusevic trade was really misguided and a botched effort. The cost difference between Bogusevic and Ruggiano is not...
I wouldn't really call that approach reminiscent of sabermetrics unless Hill is compiling the numbers into larger data sets for future analysis.
Furcal is going to be close to worthless this season. I'm not too high on Dietrich, but I'd rather see him get a shot over Furcal.
Just because they sucked at hitting last year doesn't mean that they weren't trying to hit the ball where fielders weren't.
He would have signed an extension if it were offered to him two years ago.
It's hard to get too excited anymore when you know that the Marlins f***ed up his contract and he will be gone in a season.
What on earth are you talking about? It's not like people are being impatient. The Marlins went 10 years without a single playoff appearance. That's...
That's fine but then they shouldn't bitch when the opposition puts the C team on the field.
If the Marlins were being fan friendly they wouldn't have jacked up the prices for an exhibition game.
They are breaking the rules, but not in a really impacting way. What they did is not that big of a deal, as many in this thread have argued, but the...
I suspect that the Marlins have broken that same rule several times themselves as have many major league baseball teams in recent years.
But that has nothing to do with the players caring or not. In this instance, the Marlins instigated. They were more wrong than Henry was. It was...
So what? It's not like it was highly personal anyway. He only said it because the Marlins were being douches and instigated it.
Henry isn't saying anything different from the stuff that has been said a million times already by anyone who follows the game of baseball.
"Not terrible" is not the same as "good."
I highly doubt they give a s***.
Well, yeah. In the post I responded to, you said nothing about no other option being available, so naturally I was responding to the money side.
You are missing the point. I'm saying that a player like Saltalamacchia is someone who should be platooned by a smart team. Of course a team like the...
Spring training promotes baseball culture, which is what the Marlins and Rays need. Transplants from New York are going to root for the Mets or...
