  1. If I did not live in Tampa I would do the half season plan, that being said I am now the proud owner of the MArlins 10 game ticket package. Was shocked at the benefits for such a low plan. Only cost me $150 a seat. Great deal. Go Fish.

  3. This is true. People always wanna throw "bad clubhouse culture" under the rug as if it's no big deal... until it's proven to be a big deal. Sometimes some people just don't fit in and need to go. And last year's Marlins showed how much the right atmosphere and the right mentality can help a team overachieve.

  4. Realmuto, Ozuna, Phelps, and that Cooper trade, and to a lesser extent Stanton because we got away from all that money owed. The jury is still out on the Gallen for Chisholm trade but I really think that was smart, same for Richards for Jesus Sanchez. Many trades don't work out, but if we generally progress and don't go backwards I'm happy.

  5. I still contend the team had to trade him; Yelich gave them no choice. Derek Jeter comes in, preaching a new mentality, a new brand, a new path forward, but he keeps a star who grumbles to the media that he's not on board, that things are going in a bad direction? The folks around these parts would have complained until their keyboards broke. Imagine trying to get buy-in from the players, coaches, training staff, scouts -- anyone! -- if you keep saying "good things are happening" but your superstar is saying "this team is trending in the wrong direction; I wanna go." Y'all can say al

  8. This is something I am a little concerned about with this year's starting rotation. We need an older guy who has been in the league a while to be in the rotation not only to eat up innings but also to bring gifts to the other pitchers: Veteran presents.

  9. Right but I remember at the time thinking that was the best time to do it because his value was only going to go down as the years remaining on his contract went down. So while they didn't have to do it I think the justification was that he doesn't wanna be here and there is no better time to get the highest return than now so while it didn't work out, it was justified at the time. And yes like Michael said, it was one trade... there isn't one team that doesn't make some trades that don't work out. I'd venture to guess that most trades actually don't work out. You hear about the ones that do b

  11. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2016/?list=mil Milwaukee's Top 30 at the time of the trade... Really no "big name can't miss" hitting prospects here. Brinson was their #1. Corey Ray is very similar to Brinson if we had gotten him. A 26 year-old who still hasn't made it (I wanted him to do well since I pulled an autographed card of his out of a pack of Bowman). Another high-ranked prospect, Trent Clark is now 25 and with the Padres. It's hindsight, but looking back we really shoulda traded Yelich to a team with a better farm system.

  14. Last year the Marlins had 2 of the top 10 starters in whip % in Pablo and Elieser. I would consider them to be the 3rd and 4th best starters on the big league roster right now. Our rotation is loaded and is only going to get better with Edward Cabrera and Max Meyer. The biggest reason why all the projection systems expect the Marlins to lose 90+ is that they underestimate the pitching. We're gonna surprise a lot of people.

  17. Being an Iowan myself, I remember him being my favorite Cub. I remember being thrilled when Hawk and Pendleton teamed up to play for the Marlins. For me, I was converted by the solid teal uniforms. Wish they would bring them back. Honestly, IMO if they did I believe it would inlarge the fan base.

  22. Elieser would pair brilliantly with an opener, and I think Rogers would too. Sandy and Pablo don't need one, but Sixto could actually benefit from one as well. It allows your starters (usually the best pitchers on the team) to go "deeper" into the game because they get a late start. It also helps because by the time the starter has thrown 4 or so innings, you'll know if you want to keep him in (close game) or let him rest early (lopsided in either direction). There is a lot of benefit to the opener strategy besides just not trusting your rotaish.

  23. Definitely Elieser though. If you can get two elite innings from an Opener then five elite innings by Elieser, I'll take it in that order. Having Elieser start with, realistically, 8-9-1 will help him push for a sixth inning as well. Suddenly, 8 innings gone, you've used just two pitchers, now use best pitcher for the coming situation.

  25. Make sure you check the schedule before you go because normally the Brewers, Cubs, and Cardinals play in those cities, not the Marlins.

  29. I like you. Really good way to look at it. Also if Federico Polanco turns into anything, that was a byproduct of the Yelich trade, so that could turn into an improvement there.

  30. It was a little worrisome in 2018 when the first draft with new ownership took another high school bat, but, Connor Scott actually seems to be ... decent! Trust the process, right?

  31. It’s a forgone conclusion at this point. I look at it this way. If it can’t get any worse, but maybe it can get little better.

  32. Nothing we can do about it man. This is a business. Maybe we can trade him for Tatis. I heard he’s much cheaper actually. Not a MOTY move. Thanks Mattingly!!

  33. I mean, remember we signed Stanton to a mega deal too...... ---- I'm interested to see how it's structured, and if it's done similarly to Stanton's or if it's more evenly spread? I also just remembered they have Machado and his $300M deal...... 2021: Machado - $32M Myers - 22.5M Hosmer - 21M Darvish - 19M (it's 22, but Cubs are paying 3M of that) ----- 94.5M in just those 5 guys before this Tatis deal........ I'd have to imagine the Tatis one is backloaded to help them out with some of these

  36. I think everyone liked Harold and we all thought he could contribute more and we all wished he got more opportunities to prove that but really, he was acquired to be a transitional piece and was never meant to be a long term solution for the Marlins. In some ways we didn't get enough from him but in some ways we got plenty out of him and that transitional period is ending. We're ready to consistently contend and so right now the answers in the outfield are a mix of veteran free agents and talented prospects who will hopefully become stars. Harold Ramirez no longer fit into the puzzle for anyth
