I think low-to-high 70's is where we'll land depending on how our team matures.
I think if we had 1 more power bat who could play 1b or 3b full time we would be a definite wildcard contender if our rotation stays reasonably healthy.
I think that too much has to go right for us to compete for a wildcard spot. I could see us brushing .500 if they were to implement platoons at 1B and 3B very early on.
Ranking us ahead of the Phillies?
That's an awesome surprise.
Some have picked the Marlins as sleepers to take 2nd in the NL east.... Theory is the Phillies are done, the Braves aren't as scary as they have been in the past and the Mets are stuck rebuilding but with some nice pieces.
Damn the Marlins are so bad they can't even say they started at the bottom
87.... Playoffs hopefully.
They should at least platoon at 1st, Catcher and CF. Send Ozuna back down to the minors. You'll get s*** production from 3rd, SS and 2B but the rest of the roster could be OK. I don't know if that will lead to .500 but we'll win more than 65 games.
Is this the yearly "we're going to be better than the Braves" post?
Ask Piazza how that prediction turned out last year for him.
Always.... Better....Than....The... BRAVES!
Ruben Amaro Jr. really f***ed up the Phillies.
He is laughably bad at this point.
I say we end up 3rd behind ATL & WASH.. From last place to third would be a tremendous job done by the coaching staff and Red.
Ruin Tomorrow, Jr. is realizing that it's finally...tomorrow.
I'd love to see the media as a whole just go "Woah, the Marlins made it to third place?"
With our pitching it's certainly possible.
Defintely agree... but its the look on people's faces that I wanna see.
I'd be ecstatic with an 80 win season, content with 70 wins.
