  1. Can I just gush about how good the rotation is looking over the next couple of years? 1. Sixto Sanchez 2. Sandy Alcantara 3. Max Meyer 4. Edward Cabrera 5. Pablo Lopez The rest: Trevor Rogers -- Top 100 Prospect Braxton Garrett -- Former Top 100 Prospect Eliezer Hernandez -- Looked great at times last year Nick Neidert That's like 4 guys with ace potential + Pablo + 2 Top 100 prospects + a couple more arms with big league starter potential. Wow.

  4. Poor Craig Mish. Not to be hyperbolic, but he may initially believe that we care so much about him. Eventually, though, he'll realize there were other factors. All in all, I'm glad he writes for the Marlins and not the Cardinal.

  5. We have also gotten some pretty damn good returns (e.g. the Realmuto trade was fantastic). Like @SilverBullet said: the Yelich trade was pretty universally praised at the time, and not a single soul here expected Yelich to suddenly post a 1.000 OPS the following year (and I am someone who has always seen big-time potential in Yelich). I guarantee not a single soul in the Brewers organization did, either. Yelich not only stagnated at the plate in his final season here, but he also declined rather significantly in the field, going from a Gold Glove-caliber outfielder to an average defender, at best. It was pretty clear that Yelich didn't want to be here anymore, and chances are, he would not have even come close to posting the types of numbers he did in Milwaukee had we kept him. We almost certainly would have had to trade him away at some point. The Marlins are also far from the only team that talks about five-tool prospects. You hear that from pretty much every organization. Even the Yankees, arguably the best organization in baseball, talk about the importance of five-tool guys.

  6. Hmmm... Say what you will about the Yelich trade, but the Strange-Gordan, Stanton, Ozuna, and Michael King trades were all winners in my book. I guess we can feel disgruntled about the Gallen trade (praise be), but I'm still really excited about Jazz, the player (the music? eh). If Jazz hits even his median projected value (a strong defensive SS with occasional big-league pop), then it makes it a win in my book because of the dearth of such players (and the relative wealth of pitching prospects at the time and presently). I think last I saw on that MLB Trade Values site, Stanton was worth -$100M or something crazy like that. Getting anything of value for him was downright robbery.

  7. Great for Mish... the Herald's Marlins coverage is gonna be so much better now. Huge difference from recently when they actually dropped daily beat coverage of the team.

  8. I dunno, where's the crafty Strailey type? The veteran workhorse Despaigne type? The underrated, under the radar Drew Rucinski type? Korea? Oh. They're all literally in Korea? Yeah... I prefer the current group. It's not guaranteed to be the dawn of a golden age, but the horizon is definitely sparkling.

  9. I would love more evidence of Brian having a problem with what she said. Even if it has truth behind it that doesn't suddenly mean that BA is disgruntled and wouldn't sign an extension so gotta take all of this with a grain of salt. Did she say anything wrong? Not at all. Could she have worded it differently? Possibly. With that said, it was clear what she meant and if BA and his camp had a problem with what she said then maybe they need thicker skin.

  10. Seems like a good pitcher to take a chance on. I would like Kintzler back, too. Not as the closer, but as a 6th/7th inning guy, or the guy you bring in when you really need a double play, I think he'd be great.

  18. DJ was always a pretty good hitter. Got more notice after he went to NYY. Ortiz is ... maybe a decent one here. He started hitting once he went to Boston. Was OK with Minnesota and the power was always there (look up the story of the home run derby when he was in Seattle's system, then going by David Arias). Matt Kemp maybe? Anywho. 😁 Monte is going 30/30 this year.

  19. How about this: - Universal DH - 12 team postseason - Salary floor starting in 2022 with penalties relating to draft picks if floor not met. Let's just make all that happen, yeah? Cool.

  20. Christian Yelich was very vocal about wanting out of Miami... he was not an MVP caliber player at the time... other teams did not have much interest in him... the Brewers proposed what was the best return at the time... the return was praised at the time considering Yelich was not an MVP yet... the return included multiple Top 100 prospects at the time of the deal... on the day the trade happened the Marlins were praised for getting multiple top prospects for a "good but not great" disgruntled player who other teams weren't very interested in. Did it work out for the Marlins? It did not. Some trades work out and some don't. Stop doing the whole "I told you so" bullshit over the Yelich trade because nobody "told you so" at the time. And with all of that said, Harrison Diaz and Brinson still have time to be solid contributors to the Marlins for many years, we only just DFAd the fourth man in a four person return. How many multiple player deals have guys who never even make it to the majors? Stop acting like the DFA and trade of Jordan Yamamoto is the final straw in the judgment of the Christian Yelich trade, as if Yamamoto was the only remaining hope from that deal.

  23. Ya know, if we're ever going to use an Opener, this year might be a good one to do it. Have ... IDK, any one of Cimber, Pop, Campbell Open and have Elieser take the five innings after them. Maybe even six, depending how he's doing. Just don't let him face more than 20 batters. After that. Bass. Yimi. Ballgame.

  26. I LOVE this diagnosis: And I would add to that: If you don't think 2020 was fluke, then there needs to be an agreement that the pieces are already in place for a possible repeat (or improvement, depending on the bullpen and prospect improvements). So if yer gonna get your drawers in bind about the offseason, then you have to submit that 2020 wasn't a fluke. Maybe I'm more of a doubter than I realize about 2020, but I'm perfectly fine with the patient, prospect-focused approach this offseason.

  30. Ok, sounds like most posters are satisfied with the trades BUUUUUT I have a bit of a problem trading away prospects that have produced right after they where traded. The timing has been really bad IMO. Anderson, Gill, Paddok, and Yelich. Letting them develop at least one more year would have netted us a much bigger return? It’s just unfortunate timing. Kinda of the same with Hand, Castillo, and Andrew Miller. The timing has been off. I like some of the trades, I think Jazz will have a breakout season.

  32. No, shouldn't be an unpopular opinion - right now my thought is that the spot is Harold's to lose provided he stays healthy. If he's at 100% he needs to be out there consistently.

  33. That would be sad.. I know it might be an unpopular opinion around here, but I would put a healthy Harold in right field any day over Monte (and twice on Sunday - doubleheader).

  34. 30 Strikeouts/30 At Bats? Just kidding. We love you, Monte! I’m predicting that Monte will be tearing up in AA/AAA (I don’t know which he would be) and be called up in June.

  37. Nice, I like that trade! Yamamoto lands on his feet with a fresh start on a new team so I’m happy for him. Marlins get a 19 year old(turns 20 next month) shortstop. On his very limited minor league stats so far, doesn’t seem to be power guy as of right now, but he does seem to get on base pretty well, and hopefully will continue to improve and maybe 4-5 years down the road we could be hearing more about him possibly making a difference in the Minors or even the Majors. I know we made a lot of fun of Yamamoto, but still I’m genuinely happy to see him get a fresh start somewhere else, I actually hope he does really well on his new team, except for when he plays the Marlins, then he can be like regular Yamamoto, for those games. 😂

  38. I like Pat Burrell...but he was pretty one dimensional by the end. If Monte grew his similar prolific power I would be happy. I laughed because I assumed you were suggesting that Monte doesn't fit the Burrell mold exactly...and thought you were highlighting the biggest difference in Monte's skill set - speed. Therefore, the joke..."I would be happy if he were Pat Burrell...but with speed and defense [the skills that make Monte Harrison talented]" is funny... ...but it doesn't seem as funny now that I feel like I have to defensively prove I belong. I swear I watch baseball... Now I have a question for YOU...what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

  41. They managed to play last year with minimal issue. There is no reason to delay the start this year. What are they going to have figured out a month later that isn't figured out now? This another example of using the crisis to gain control - Manfred essentially wants unchecked control of MLB. Have I mentioned that I dont like Manfred?!? I don't like unions either, but they've got ground to stand on here.

  45. If the Phillies had made the playoffs in 2019 or 2020 I'd say they won the trade because they accomplished what they wanted when getting Realmuto. But by not being able to extend him before he got to free agency I'm not so sure we're in the exact time frame to judge how the Phillies did on that trade. An argument can be made that they lost the trade and then, in a separate move, had to spend $115 million to keep JT around. Especially when you consider the Marlins made the playoffs over the Phillies in 2020 with the help of Sixto Sanchez... I can see the argument for saying the Marlins actually won this deal. I mean, if I'm a Phillies fan... considering we did nothing in 2019 and 2020, we could have just kept Sixto and gone after JT in free agency now and then the 2021 Phillies have Bryce, JT, AND Sixto. So yeah, I'm not sold on the Phillies being clear winners of that trade at all.
