  6. Dusty out as Nats manager

    Looks like winning back to back division championships will get you fired, him and Farrell let go for the teams not advancing

    Nats change managers often.

  9. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    Remember 1998-1999? Yeah, this is going to be bruuutal. With the cherry on top being Stanton maybe putting up big numbers on another team.
  10. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    The Marlins should have signed JT Realmuto to an extension last off season. Yelich and JT are two guys you wanna build around. Yelich with a friendly contract and young age and JT with a position of need. I don't mind going through 2013 again if it means having quality prospects come back in trades.
  11. Mike Maddux

    I definitely think a change in pitching coach is needed. Maddux would be great. I would also prefer a better bench coach. Fredi Gonzalez did well as 3B coach and hopefully comes back.
  12. Mike Maddux

    Why'd you come twice?
  13. Mike Maddux

    I thought Moose was Mussina's nickname.

  16. Mike Maddux

    Does he come come with a Greg? Are the Madduxes buy-one-get-one-free?
  17. Mike Maddux

    Yes a change in pitching coach would be welcomed here. The rest of the coaching staff I think is fine, with several I think being stand outs. (Hill, Paglaruliolo/Menechino, Wallach).
  18. Mike Maddux

    Apparently let go along with the rest of the Nationals staff. Marlins should definitely go after him.
  19. Loria vs Miami-Dade County: One Last Battle

    Lol criticizing the metric system.
  20. Last week
  21. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    I didnt say trade him 100%, just saying that his contract situation is different from Yelich's and it isnt guaranteed he would even still be here or want to be here at the end of year 3 when he's a free agent. Also, his value might be really fucking high.
  22. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    I mean, there's nothing wrong with retaining one guy. My fear is that we end up going another decade in search of a catcher that isn't a total piece of trash.
  23. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    I'd just trade him way before Yelich because Realmuto only has 3 more years of team control, which isnt bad, but that has value, and if we do a full rebuild, he will likely be gone by the time the rebuild is complete.
  24. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    I see no reason why Realmuto can't survive the rebuild. He's a vital position this franchise has failed to tackle for years. I'd hold onto him, if possible.
  25. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    I think they should try to hold onto Ziegler, Chen, Prado, and Tazawa for now. Those were all bad contracts but there's always a chance that some of them could exhibit some value next season. If someone like Ziegler is decent in June 2018, you could probably find someone to take on the rest of that contract and maybe get a low level prospect in return. Those players might be easier to move if they improve a little and stay healthy, because right now their values couldn't be lower. Dee Gordon and Marcell Ozuna should be the first players traded. Then Stanton and Straily. Depending on the players you are getting back in those deals, then decide what you want to do with Yelich and/or Realmuto. I think people overestimate Bour's value, so he's worth holding onto for now. I think I do subscribe to the belief that the Marlins FO needs to acknowledge that there are a lot of players on the roster who are simply sunk costs and it would not be wise to start diminishing the prospect hauls by tacking on those bad contracts. If you get rid of Gordon, Ozuna, Stanton, and Straily you likely meet that $90 million payroll figure.
  26. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    I'm more in line with a variant of what penguin was theorizing. Expensive contracts are sunk costs. It'll cost you assets to dump some of those players. Might as well ride them out and sell by parts. The fire sale is a two season thing. From the fan's perspective it's quite literally the ugliest thing, as unless a miracle happens next season, it's going to be a very long and very slow rebuild.
  27. Jeter/Sherman target $90 mil payroll

    Completely agreed. You cant half ass it with the situation we are in. With Jose still in the picture either with a long term deal for him or if we traded him before he hit free agency for the Sale package, this would be completely different, but this team is literally a mess in every area. We have no pitching, horrible long term contracts, no minor league system to speak of, and bad debt. We have to completely rebuild and do it the right way. Eat the contracts that expire after next year, cash in on assets like Bour, Stanton, Ozuna, Dee, Straily, and maybe Yelich and Realmuto, Then start investing heavily in the draft, player development and IFA, and we should be able to rebuild relatively quickly if we do it right. We are in a much better starting position from a tradeable asset standpoint than the Astros and Cubs were. The fans will be pissed, but you cant run a team thinking of the fans over the long term sustainability of the team. The fans arent exactly coming out in droves now, so I dont really care if we have no one in the stands next year if we rebuild the right way and have a consistent, great young team that will contend for a decade after 2 down years.
