  1. I'm not sure if Brice makes the team. I'd rather have Stanek, Steckenrider (healthy), Brigham (great end of year), Yimi, and Sharp (keep him or he's gone). Then, is Brice better than Hernandez if one of those 5 gets hurt? This one isn't a big deal.

  3. Brice is out of options so that limits flexibility for a backend reliever, and Keller isn't very good. They also have at least 7 comparable or better right handers - Stanek, Steck, Yimi, Brigham, Sharp, Hernandez, and Dugger - plus Guzman likely joining pen midseason. Garcia and Quijada are there only lefty relievers without Conley, and Quijada doesn't really look ready. Vesia is probably a 2021 player considering they can avoid 40 man protection for 1 more year. Conley also has real upside - https://blogs.fangraphs.com/these-three-marlins-lefties-have-some-funky-fastballs/ Relievers are volatile. He's worth the gamble this year for sure. He knows this is his last chance for consistent MLB contracts so you'd hope he shows up ready to go.

  6. One thing to keep in mind is that their WAR numbers the last 2 seasons don't mean squat. If Diaz, Harrison, and Yamamoto maintain starter level WAR for 5 seasons they would get to 30 WAR. If they contribute to the Marlins having winning seasons, who cares what their total WAR is especially since it probably helped get better picks the last 2 years with their struggles. It would be like if a team was guaranteed to win 810 games and lose 810 games over the course of a decade, it would be better to average 53 wins for 3 years and 93 for the other 7 than it is to get 81 wins every season.

  7. The stupidest decision this regime will ever make is trading Yelich with 5 years of control for below market value. And that isn't accounting for Brinson failing and Yelich getting better. But the Wittgren move was really dumb.

  8. I disliked the Wittgren move too, but you said the media should have been all over them for it and I can't think of media anywhere that would have been all over any team for DFAing a middle reliever with no real prior success to speak of. Once again you're discussing different things and/or changing the conversation midstream.

  9. Half the threads are full of idiotic ramblings under the guise of sarcasm because people are not saavy enough for intelligent conversation, so you are correct in that assessment.

  10. This is a stretch. Wittgren was solid but he was also just a middle reliever with no really big prior successes to speak of. It's not like he was an All Star before nor did he go on to become a superstar in Cleveland. I can't think of any media in any market for any team that would have made a big deal about DFAing a middle reliever with no real prior success.

  11. Uh. It's a minor league deal. IF he makes the major league roster, he makes 750k with 250 in incentives possible.

  12. The fact that nobody in the Miami media covering this team really pressed this front office on that decision (DFA Wittgren) is just a testament to how fucking bad the media is in Miami.
