    A team that hits around .230 is never fun to watch.

    I agree with this. Tons of expectations going into one season with a huge let down, compared to going into the next season with zero expectations and watching some kids grow in front of our eyes. 2014 should be better, with a couple hopefully silencing some skeptics.

    Except for when Jose pitched, absolutely disagree. Last years product on the field was an abomination, like watching paint dry. Agree with those who say we should never be subjected to that kind of team again.

    So you were more entertained by the 2012 squad?

    Absolutely, was frustrated by them but yeh. The 2013 team was just horrific, looking at the group we had in the infield and at catcher, could have very well been the worst assemblage of hitting in the history of the game.

    I certainly enjoyed the 2013 victories more than the 2012 losses. :lol

    Yeah, there were so many of them.

    7 fewer, which was not what was expected. Again, zero-little expectations that fail = more fun to watch than high expectations that fail.

    The 2006 team was a LOT more fun to watch than 04 and 05.

    Only because of Fernandez.

    A Fernandez-less 2013 Marlins is far less exciting than the 2012 Marlins.

    I agree. Whenever Fernandez pitched, it was electric.

    Good signing. Should be a nice bat for our lineup. Really like the way our future looks. We may be a year away, but I really like the direction of this team.

    Unless have missed it, why hasn't there been an interview with our big signing. Where is the media? I would like to hear what Salty has to say and why he signed here-even if it just the standard reply.

    He'll be introduced today at the Winter Meetings so expect some quotes later today.

    I like the move. This will give us time to find our franchise catcher.
