  2. The Miami Marlins opened their Grapefruit League schedule with a 5-3 win over the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie on Saturday. Both teams exchanged runs early and then some solid pitching led the way for the remainder of the contest. Defense was shaky early, though weather played a role in those miscues. The conditions were windy at New York's spring home, with fly balls becoming an adventure early on. Other than the defense, Miami had a strong start to the spring and have some things to build on the rest of the way. Monte Harrison picked up a base knock in the first inning and stole a p

  3. Fiers should have outed it while he was there, but at least he had the guts to do it eventually. The rest of the cheaters kept it hidden. Fuck unwritten rules. When a written rule is broken and the integrity of the game is at stake, I'm glad someone spoke up. It is annoying as a fan of the game to see people vilify Fiers. Also, fuck Rob Manfred.

  5. I would like to take credit for this. It was clearly my thread asking if they should claim him, that convinced them to do it. Great job everyone replying to it with positive feedback as well.

  7. Offering him 4/$60 is the textbook definition of a legit attempt to sign him. That's around where he should be, absent some crazy offer from someone else. Also who else is offering that money? Are the Marlins afforded an opportunity to counter in your hypothetical? If three teams offer that and they raise their offer is that satisfying a good faith effort then? He's also from South Florida and the Marlins do have a lot of hope to sell, even with the 2021 team. Portraying them solely as a 100 loss team is difficult when there is a ton of talent coming. The farm is legitimately deep. Likewise

  8. How about we just stick to the rebuild since we've already restocked the system, have another high draft pick in June and have already sacrificed two brutal seasons to it? Changing the plan now would be a Loria type move. Short term FA is my preferred route.

  9. What do you consider over spending? The Marlins basically have right now: 2020 - 20+ guys club controlled for 25 man roster = $42 million. They need some bench bats, and a legitimate starter in the outfield. (Alfaro, Wallach, Cooper, Isan, Rojas, Berti, Anderson, Ramirez, Brinson, Sierra, Caleb, Sandy, Pablo, Urena, E.Hernandez/Yamamoto, Stanek, Steckenrider, Brice, Brigham, Garcia, Conley) 2021 - Literally 22-24 guys as they have to play the kids= $48 millionish, assuming reasonable arb estimates. They still just need a right handed bat, and potentially upgraded bench/bullpen options

  11. so he wants to be paid MORE to play for Miami. The exact opposite of the whole "hey, he might take less to play here because of ....." Also, already admitting that basically he's not going to try and take an opportunity to rise to the occasion to play in front of a people who would embrace him (and demand more money as a result) tells you everything you need to know about him as an individual.

  12. I've defended Samson a bit because he was always nice and professional with me directly, but this is getting to be kind of ridiculous. His need for attention rivals some of my 6th graders at this point.

  13. Now I've paid keen attention to whether or not the fellers in the mound have been throwing the bendy stuff or not to ol' Brins. And I'll say, there appears to be a book on Brinson: Throw a breaking ball down and away. Not really revelatory stuff, but the it's a recipe we saw work against him in 2018-19. Well, they've gone to that book again this spring, maybe even to an excess as pitchers are trying to master the feel of their off-speed bits, and frankly Brinson had licked his thumb, maintained eye contact with the pitcher, and one-by-one ripped every page from that book. I'll go ahead a

  17. You know - I thought I did a good job there. Most of the time, I feel as if I'm writing well. I wrote that, proofed it, missed the obvious flub, and published it. I continually and carefully monitor each story's performance, and revisit them for later edits as needed. That major vs. minor thing....should have been obvious. I feel like an idiot for missing it. I work really hard to grow traffic to my blog. I write over 30,000 words a month - every month. I know I make errors, but I do try very hard to keep them to a minimum. To answer your question - no I do not have an editor. If you

  22. My prediction was that one would sign and then the Marlins would get desperate for the other and amp up their efforts then. Good to see they didn't wait for that desperation.

  25. This move was so obvious that, with our history, it was like we were almost expecting them to actually screw this up and NOT do this so seeing it happen actually feels amazing lol. It's like whoa we actually did the right thing??? Kinda weird how that feels rare for us. Hopefully this is another sign that things are different moving forward.

  26. Why would we? It's one thing if it's a 1 year experiment like the Dolphins where they cleared the cap space and got the draft picks quick and presumably next year is going to be a radically different team. But year 3 of new ownership after clearing the books and being 1+ year out from the prospects? We all deserve better

  28. 2021 free agency is Mookie, Realmuto, and a lot of SP (Bauer, Ray, Paxton headline). Everyone else is older and you don't want on a long term deal (Springer, LeMahieu, D. Peralta), or not even "Castellanos/Ozuna" level absent breakouts. I wouldn't want them to spend on this unless they can somehow convince Mookie to come down. Maybe Ray if he is healthy as he's still really young and I really like his stuff if he keeps it together. 2022 free agency is epic - Freeman, Rizzo, Baez, Arenado, Lindor, Correa, Seager, Story, Conforto, Syndergaard, every old ace in baseball (Kershaw, Verlander, Kl

  31. I am sympathetic to this argument (to an extent), but to echo your other post after this, it's definitely not will he be bad next year or not. To me this is, does he have any value to this organization. As we saw at the deadline, topical relievers got nothing of value in trade returns. No one is going to trust Chen even if he throws a solid 30 innings before the deadline. There is no upside with him. Where is the value when they could be giving those whatever innings to someone else to see if they have a longterm option? Give them to Quijada as a third bullpen lefty and if he bombs, call Casta

  32. All joking aside. As much as people like to dwell on Yelichs coming of age, the Marlins did well on Ozuna. He posted a wRC+ of 143 in his last year in Miami. Followed it with 107 and 110 in St. Louis and now they’re supposedly letting him walk. That’s a win for the marlins. Stanton was massive salary relief. He barely played this season. Trading him right after 59 HRs was going to get them about as much as they could have possibly hoped for. You really do win some and lose some.

  34. It's a couple of things, I'm comfortable in me and my own actions to protect myself but I can't trust the moron who accidentally gets too close to me in the concession line and coughs on my back and secondly it's a personal comfort knowing I put my family at less risk by not going to a ball game or doing other unnecessary things. I don't really care too much about myself but I have a baby of less than a year old and my elderly in laws in my house often as they help take care of the baby so it's more about not putting them at risk. I'm not trying to make my story a big deal I'm just saying ther

  35. I'll add to this with the fact that, where did we get Jose Fernandez, or Yelich, or Stanton? Elite players don't necessarily come from the top rated prospects before the draft.

  36. Ichiro "is" a Seattle Mariner but I don't think his time here is gonna be forgettable considering his 3,000th hit was as a Marlin and he was here long enough that people will remember that this is where he winded his career down especially since he was still fairly productive too. I'd argue that Ichiro's time as a Yankee will be more forgotten down the line.

  37. Oh please. I don't know if he's a nice guy or not but calling out Fiers for this when virtually the entire organization was cheating is kinda lame. Fiers wasn't wrong and one can complain about when he spoke up and the fact that he accepted a ring just like the rest of them but this is people trying to pass the blame. "Shooting the messenger" if you will. Getting mad at your sibling because they told your parents you did something wrong. Calling someone a tattle tale in school when they tell the teacher when in reality you were wrong anyways. Fiers is a bad guy for pointing out somet

  43. The Loria led Marlins seriously fucked the team. It was all the impulsive terrible decisions that deprived the team of anything that resembled a farm system. Oh, Fernando Rodney is available after 2 good months? Give them Chris Paddack. He won't amount to anything. Dan Straily available? Looks like we don't need Luis Castillo anymore. The team was in such a terrible place that it will take years to recover from it. You don't just sign 2 pitchers and then magically have a great team. I'm sure the Astros fans of 2011-2013 hated their rebuild. I'm sure the Nationals fans of 2008-2010 felt the

  47. Trades could change the board for sure. However, they do have a high upside player at every position that should be MLB ready by 2021 (or an extra year for Bleday): C - Alfaro (drops Ks is a monster). Banfield could develop. 1B - Lewin (they say GG calibre with big power upside). Cooper is also cost effective 2B - Diaz (big power, and cost effective). Berti also was awesome and maybe he's real SS - Jazz (and Devers/Nunez are interesting) 3B - Anderson LF - Bleday CF - Monte (maybe Sanchez). Plus VVM could hit and Sierra has GG upside. Scott and Misner behind them. RF - Sanchez Al
