    This is a dumb take by Mish. No manager was going to change this team from a 100 loss team or last year’s from a 98 loss team. Don makes some bad decisions but with a shit roster to work with, his job wasn’t to win games really. It was to help mold a young roster into a winning one. It was to keep a good clubhouse. It was to keep guys fighting and clawing even in the dog days of summer. The clubhouse seems to love him and they do try and win even while having one of the worst records in baseball. Their failure to win isn’t on him. I would say he did a good job based on what was expected of him.

    Let’s also not forget how we’ve had some shitty pitching out of the bullpen for some stretches this season (Chen and stanek for example). So a one run a game improvement and a slightly better pen would make us a middle of the pack team.

    I'd be 100% down to pool money and buy a team if only for the entertaining "meetings" we'd have trying to agree on club direction and which 2 pitchers we need to contend. At least the bbq would be on point.

    I'm usually on board with Mish's thoughts, but his comments yesterday (Abreu/Markakis) and acting like Mattingly should've won 100 games with this roster today seems odd.

    I really hate how teams use a manager during a rebuild and then just toss them when they are ready to compete. I mean you are just treating the guy like garbage saying "deal with our crap and when we're ready to reap the rewards of your hard work we're gonna kick you to the curb."

    This reminds me of Stanton in 2014 when he got hit in the face and finished 2nd in the MVP race behind Kershaw and people were saying if he didn't get injured he might have won the award and I remember thinking his injury was the reason the Marlins missed the playoffs and that, to me, was more proof of Stanton's MVP case than Kershaw with the Dodgers.

    Dombrowski's record: Deplete farm system to build a few championship clubs. Hill's record: Deplete farm system to build a 79 win club.

    This doesn't really fit because his contract was up now so now was the time to make the move smoothly without backlash of firing a guy. And you'd also want their guy to come in as soon as possible, you wouldn't necessarily want your guy to come in the one year you think you'll be competing because there can be an adjustment period needed as well.

    For the record, I get why we're like this, but it's funny that the Marlins change managers like they change their underwear but the one time they finally extend a respectable manager this is us...

    Really surprising. At the end of the day, though, Donnie isn’t the reason we will lose 100+ games and he won’t be the reason (if) we win 82-90 games in 2021.

    Calling the Yelich trade the worst in history is already a stretch... it's not like it was Yelich for Brinson straight up. We still have high hopes that Monte, Isan, and Yamamoto can all contribute at the big league level. Way too soon to write that trade off considering 3 of the 4 guys are meant to contribute to this team down the line.

    Sandy really taking form lately. Whatever he's doing differently, he seems to have found consistency in doing so.

    Honestly, this is actually kinda correct.

    So what did they say is the reason for "the forecast is lazy?" Just because attendance is bad in late August of a 100 loss season for a mid week game vs an unpopular opponent just as a major hurricane is forming? Or did they say something more?

    That game was reported to be 23,725 fans with an average of 22,042 in the three games of that series. So only 16.3% and 8.08% better than the season average of 20,395. Since it was a weekend series and this game in particular was a Sunday, you would expect the numbers to be up naturally. So, the needle didn't really move much. The one problem is the untruthful reporting of attendance so it is impossible to tell whether these numbers are more or less accurate. But based on the reported numbers, the attendance in the 2nd half when Stanton started his tear were down compared to the first half.

    I'm not against this idea. Go for it, see if it works. Just don't let him face Acuna.

    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.

    I'm not a racist, but I don't like Hill's "flattery" face. How much did he flatter former owner Loria and prez Samson? A scumbag.
