    Someone sent me a link to this conversation. Great stuff. One of the big things the Marlins need is more fans like most of you who have posted here. I appreciate everyone’s passion. One of the commenters wondered what motivated me to send out the Tweets I did Sunday night. I’ll answer that question here. I was on the team bus, heading from the ballpark to the airport after the Marlins finished off the sweep of the Phillies Sunday. I was reflecting on a 20-15 stretch and, especially, the just-completed 5-2 road trip, watching the team play so well for a week in a couple of great baseball markets in ballparks packed with 40,0000 passionate fans each night night. And then I thought about flying home to an incredible ballpark but only 6,000 fans and Max Scherzer Tuesday night. It just hit me that things are beginning to change for this franchise on and off the field under this new ownership, and it’s time that people begin to acknowledge that. Things are improving in tangible ways that people in this discussion can see. As someone who grew up down here and left the Boston Red Sox because I wanted to work for my hometown team at a time when I probably still smelled like champagne after winning a second World Series in my last 4 seasons there in 2007, it frustrates the heck out of me that too many people just won’t move on from things that happened under previous owners 5 or 10 or 25 years ago. At some point, you’re either a baseball fan, or you’re not. You’re either a Marlins fan, or you’re not. In my eyes, it’s not a crime to not care about the Marlins. That’s cool. But eventually that’s on you. That’s not on a former owner. It’s not about needing a new ballpark or needing to be out of the heat and the rain. It’s not about trading away players people loved but somehow played in front of the lowest attendance in the league year after year. At some point, own it. It’s on you. Now, I realize that most of the people reading this don’t fall into that group. As I said in the thread, I can’t begin to express my appreciation for those who are dedicated fans of this team. I acknowledge it hasn’t always been easy to be a Marlins fan. But you know what? Your faith and your devotion is getting closer to being rewarded. For the first time in its history, this franchise has a plan that is being adhered to and is in the earliest stages of bearing fruit. As much as we want to celebrate some of the exciting things beginning to happen as some players graduate to the big leagues, others begin to establish themselves and some begin to produce because they’re finally healthy, we’re still in the 2nd or 3rd inning of this thing. There is so much more talent on the way. Guys who will be here before the end of this season. Some who will arrive next year. Some further down the road. They have transformed the scouting and player development operation. They are doing things internationally that have never before been done here. They have transformed the clubhouse and organizational culture. They are bringing in talented players who want to be here and are being taught daily what it takes to sustain success. And they’re immersing themselves in the community and have worked hard to improve the ballpark experience through various enhancements, including cheaper tickets and concessions. You can go to a game for $10 and buy ballpark staples for $3 or $5. I could go on, but there’s probably a character limit at some point. Just wanted to say thanks to those of you who have been supportive of the team and to those who supported my thread the other night. I hope you guys will keep coming out to Marlins Park and will encourage others to do so. Explain to people what you and I are seeing that maybe they don’t yet see. It’s not going to win over everybody, but that’s fine. Fans like you can be part of the solution. Thanks for the passion! Look forward to seeing you at Marlins Park, and here’s to some great days down the road for this franchise. Fans like you deserve them more than anybody. Glenn

    I forgot to make a post a few weeks ago on my 15th anniversary of this site. I used to be much more active e but stupid adulting has taken my time away. For those not aware, I am your resident Marlins fan from Iowa... Davenport to be exact (been dealing with quite a bit of flooding lately!). I became a Marlins fan in 1995 when I was 12 years old when my hero, Andre Dawson, signed with the Fish. I grew up idolizing him when he was on the Cubs. When he went to the Red Sox for two seasons, I became a Sox fan. When he went to the Fish in '95, I became a fan of the Marlins and have been a fan ever since. I remember that '97 World Series game so vividly as a 14 year old. That hooked me in and there was no going back. Flash forward to 2003. What a magical run that was. Being surrounded by Cubs fans, game 6 was one of the more amazing life events. Words can't explain the level of excitement (and fear) I felt being in a bar with 100 pissed off Cubs fans in my Marlins gear. It was amazing. I would say though, during that magical 2003 run, that the best game of the entire playoffs was game 3 of the NLDS against the Giants. The Jose Cruz error, falling behind in extras then Pudge ending with 2 outs and bases load... Amazing. Then the next game with Niner to Pudge to end the series.. so awesome. Then beating the Cubs.. and then winning a world series IN Yankee Stadium. Boy oh boy. Any way, I am rambling. The last 15 years have been tough but my level of fandom has never swayed. Seeing your favorite players continually traded, cheap owners, terrible farm system.. I still never gave up on them! Granted, I would throw hissy fits and say eff the Marlins every once in a while, but I would always come back (I'm an adult and not capable of switching loyalties). I try to go to a Marlins game or series at least once or twice a year. Have already gone to a Brewers game (we won 8-3.. we had lost the last 6 times I had seen them!). That may be it for this year.. all the games I go to (Milwaukee, Chicago, StL) happened very early in the season. Also the owner at my local bar knows to put the Marlins game on the TV when I am in the place (Doesn't exactly make me popular.. lol). I would say that I am pretty excited for this current team. I feel that Jeets is turning a corner and I really hope it keeps up. The young pitchers are incredibly impressive. Really hope that we are able to give them some offense because I think this turnaround could be a lot quicker than people expected. Anywho, just thought I'd ramble on a little bit. I haven't done that too often during my 15 years on this site. Keep believing Marlins fan.. our loyalty will be rewarded again... it has to!! Larry -- Thanks for everything. You've always run a good site. I'm sure when Jeets gets this train rolling that we'll be seeing quite a few new faces on this site! Go Fish

    so the Marlins used 104.98% of the bonus pool had they hit 105% they would have had to forfeit next year's first round pick......pretty good work by the front office especially to sign the last pick they inked the 12th round high schooler and still under 105%

    Absolutely. This kind of play should expedite the plans. We are getting a clearer picture of the team's specific needs. It is no longer "everything".

    This is not a thread about what we should do at the trade deadline. We already have one of those. This is a thread about suggesting trades for the Marlins to consider. See the difference?

    No. Jeff will bring the ham, then Mike will kick it so Jeff will have to go get it again and bring it back then Mike will just kick the ham again only to make Jeff have to retrieve it once again and upon the return of the ham, Mike will just kick it for a third time. We'd need to also call up Arisberto Keepham from Single-A to make it all make sense, and he's not ready for the big leagues.

    Marlins radio play by play guy absolutely NAILS it in reference to the Marlins and their lack of support at Marlins Park. Read the whole thread it’s worth while

    You have the most wins, but also the most loses. That puts you in 7th for win%. @rmc523 has the best win%, but has only done a single game. I would say @THRILLHO is the leader among qualifiers. 1st: @rmc523: 1-0 (1.000) 2nd: @THRILLHO: 7-4 (.636) 3rd: @el_gmac: 3-2 (.600) 4th: @Das Texan: 2-2 (.500) 4th: @SilverBullet: 1-1 (.500) 6th: @pollythewog: 2-3 (.400) 7th: @SonOfJack: 10-16 (.385) 8th: @SongInTheAir: 1-3 (.250) 9th: @Michael: 2-7 (.222) 10th: @DTrain: 1-4 (.200) 11th: @taiwanmarlin: 0-1 (.000) 11th: @Marlino: 0-1 (.000) 11th: @Ema2R: 0-2 (.000)

    NOTE: all numbers outside of parenthesis will be the original MLB pool, numbers in parenthesis are the added up value from that new list. ;TLDR version - We have $8,564,300 (or $8,567,100) left in our pool. We have the potential of offering Bleday/Misner a total of up to $9,216,550 (or $9,219,490) without losing a draft pick. MLB's original pool says $13,045,000, (using that link above, I added up the pick value of the top 10 picks and got $13,047,800). I then added up what guys have been signed for and got $4,480,700. That means for those top 10 picks, we have $8,564,300 (or $8,567,100) left. Looking into it more (I provided the MLB info below), the top 10 picks are the only ones assigned a slot value that counts toward/against our pool figure. Only if a guy from 11-40 signs over $125k will that count against our pool. According to that list at that link, there were only a few guys right at that $125k figure, so they shouldn't count against our initial pool. There are more guys unsigned, but I'm assuming the team will cap everyone out at that $125k figure to not affect their pool for Bleday and Misner. Also important to note, we can exceed our bonus pool too, but we'll incur pentalties. We can exceed it by up to 5% and "only" pay a 75% tax on the overage. After that, we'd get hit with losing draft picks. MLB's list at the link below says the Marlins had a $13,045,000 pool (so not sure where the extra $2,800 comes from adding up the picks from the new link, but still a negligible difference), but given that, that means we could go up to $13,697,250‬ ($13,700,190‬ using the new link) total (an extra 652,250 or 652,390) without losing a draft pick, and "only" paying a $489,187.50‬ (or $489,292.50) tax. Written another way: They can spend an extra $652k over their original pool allotment and only pay a 490k overage tax. Meaning we have the potential of offering Bleday/Misner a total of $9,216,550 (or $9,219,490) without losing a draft pick. From MLB: https://www.mlb.com/news/2019-mlb-draft-pools-and-bonus-values

    Rojas is kinda like the "new" Prado for this team from when Prado used to be good and his hamstrings weren't made of wet tissue paper (no, i know the bat isn't quite to par but it's not far off either) - kinda odd considering Prado is still with the Marlins. That said, if they get a decent offer you still have to move him - he's the kind of player that's key for a team with real aspirations of winning it all since he's so versatile in the field and doesn't embarass himself with the bat either. Most title winning teams do have that super utility guy on their team which is what Rojas certainly would qualify as. He can certainly start on a regular basis as well - but he wouldn't be an everyday starter on a playoff team most likely so none of the middling or bottom feeding teams will likely put an offer out there for him as there would be no point. Also, if any of the bullpen arms get even a respectable offer - you move them. There is not a single lights-out type of bp arm on this roster and the bp is generally the easiest part to fix in an offseason whether it's through FA or even just converting a starter to long relief or calling some kids up. Legit shut down type guys in the bullpen that can do it from year to year are really rare (when you consider how many there are in MLB) and every year new guys step up and assume that role. It's probably the most volatile part of any MLB roster. If for some reason Richards doesn't work out as a starter he would make a devastating relief arm, though in my opinion since he does have that stupidly good out pitch. I really don't want to see him moved. Such a shame that Urena had to go and get himself injured.

    Tonight’s attendance was very impressive: 9,469 Only Friday Night with higher attendance was 5/17 vs. Mets: 9,870. We will have our first 10,000+ Friday Night very soon. Starting Pitching was impressive, bullpen was great tonight, Offense was very productive. We will make the playoffs by 2021. The rest of the Division is in chaos, Phillies are overrated, Nationals are mediocre, and the Mets are a soap opera, the Braves are our only competition.

    This is beautiful. Can't forget how great Stanton was as a leader here when Jose passed, very nice to see him imparting some leadership and words of advice to the Angels players. A good man...

    To be serious, I can say that I keep renewing, not to show support to the marlins for the way they do things, but for my own selfish reasons. I grew up down here and a diehard baseball fan. Walking in the stadium that first game in 1993 was magical, I stopped and just said "oh my, a regular season game and our own team". Sure, the "experience" and "experiences" over the years challenges anyone to keep supporting this business, but to a baseball fan, it goes beyond a business. I differ from the example if the food is really bad at a restaurant, you won't keep going unless they improved it. You can choose a different restaurant, but there will not be another team to go watch. I started taking my daughters to games and my older one and I watch almost every game together, either in person or on TV. You can't beat that except I have now taken my 4 yr old granddaughter to games and she is getting it and asking a million questions. Last Friday night, we were babysitting and it was bedtime and she said "grandpa, can we watch a little baseball before I go to sleep". Her favorite is Brian Anderson. Then she says "I want you to teach me baseball". So, yea, I view this from a different perspective and it is not rare or unusual. The fan base in other cities were built from the same relationships with the kids and the generational growth. This is what we are striving for. And I do not want to lose this team no matter how bad they can be and for this I always say thanks that Loria got it done, regardless of the methods.

    As far as Geffner is concerned, I know for a fact that he goes to almost every game home and away. This is a real fan. Yet, our fans keep coming up with reasons not to go.

    It wouldn't be an over the hill guy like Encarnacion but it is interesting to think if they might sign a bat if they do continue to show improvement throughout the year as they've been doing lately. 20 of 35 lately right? A couple more stretches like this might be enough to move to the next stage of the rebuild even if they still finish in last place. Also remember they made a push for DJ Lemahieu last offseason... this ownership might not be as far from free agency as we think.

    it does give you hope for a year or two from now when even more of the top arms in the minors are in the mix too (and hopefully more bats). on that note - I'm gonna go watch Sixto pitch tonight.

    People are way too focused on Caleb's age. If the Marlins do what they want and are sustainably good in 2-3 years then him being 29-32 years old is perfectly fine. I mean I know he isn't super young but the talk about his age is making him sound like he's 37 and at the tail end of his career.

    Just realistic, honestly. Alcantara doesn't miss bats, and his run prevention is not sustainable if he keeps walking almost as many guys as he strikes out. I understand that on-field performance is the most important metric, but there's plenty of value in advanced stats like SIERA and FIP, both of which show Alcantara is (right now) a well below average pitcher. I think he can still develop into a solid starter as he's shown plenty of signs of putting things together, but there remains the chance that his career follows the path of Jarred Cosart (eerily similar numbers at this point)

    It's one thing to keep a guy like this on the roster because of his contract. That comes from the higher ups (Hill, Jeter, whatever). Putting him into games we're losing by 1 or 2 runs? That's on Mattingly, and that's giving up the game. I know people roll their eyes at things like this, but imagine being a young Marlin player fighting your hardest to win the few games your team is going to win, then seeing the worst pitcher in baseball come in to pitch in a game you're down 3-1. 3-1 is a game you can still win. Why put in a guy who is almost guaranteed to make that deficit larger?
