  3. Well, they do acknowledge the farm system is drastically better than what it was - and correctly point out it's at the cost of fielding a non-competitive MLB roster. They're 100% accurate also in stating that the Marlins have always ended up trading away their stars for prospects and/or cash savings. The Marlins have also periodically had good farm systems in years past only to see the fruits of those systems be traded away once again for more prospects and/or savings. It's really not a stretch to see why the Marlins would be ranked so low on the list when this new group has only traded away the marketable players once again for monetary savings and prospects. Also, the article claims by 2022 they could be back in the playoffs so how far off is that really from what the expectations were when all the trades went down? I understand that everyone is ga-ga over having a better farm system by quite a bit but how different has that been from previous tear downs? The new regime will have a chance to prove they are different and thus, finally dispel the whole "hopeless" theme once it comes time to spend in FA and also when extensions are needed for the guys who end up becoming the every day starters.
  4. Eliminate the teal tbh. I don't like the combination of color schemes from different eras.
  5. Yeah so what is it... the Marlins broke up a contender or the Marlins were always out of it by May? How can it possibly be both?
  6. Yeah Stanton was definitely wrong with that comment and, unfair as it may truly be, the fact that we were out of it as often as we were can very much be blamed on his underperformance as much as anything else so he shouldn't be throwing cheap shots in this direction.
  7. My friend down there designed this. I'm trying to figure out how to cop one.
  8. I regress, but I tend to remember that despite his lofty numbers (when he got hot after we were mostly out of the race) how many games were on the line in April and May late in the game with him at bat and runners in scoring position, cringing at him swinging at the pitch 2 feet outside and in the dirt for strike 3.
  9. I also love how Stanton last year said that it was the first time he was playing for a team that was not out of it by May and the media ate that up, and yet they still declare that the Marlins were a contender.
  10. I think the Angels are a great example of what we were and would be if we didn't start over and, in some way, it's almost what people act like they want us to be... a team that tries every year but also wades in mediocrity. Like, would people actually rather us be like the Angels every year as opposed to what we're trying to do now?
  11. sandy will be an elite RP and the sooner that happens the better
  12. This is all under the assumption that the team was broken apart because it got expensive, rather than because the team sucked. I love how all of these websites that never paid attention to the team during the 2015-2017 seasons declare that the Marlins were contenders because they had a few good players. The Angels have several good players, but no one would say that they are real contenders.
  13. It seems more than just bad. It reminds me of elementary school writing assignments. Like when a 3rd grader has to write an essay on why they should serve pizza everyday in the cafeteria. They only make sense to the actual writer.
  14. And most people only buy one issue a year these days and with the internet, can't even know why that is the case.
  15. The thing about Sports Illustrated is that they hire a lot of really, really bad writers.
  16. Yeah, I don't know what the purpose of writing this article now was.
  17. Exactly. It's just loaded with ignorance. It's like seeing rain clouds and saying there's zero chance of rain. And it's from a supposedly major source/website whatever.
