  1. I disagree - to an extent. Obviously you don't sign someone to some big contract year one of a rebuild. But sometimes a splash needs to be made early to show everyone (both on the team and externally/to other teams, FAs, etc) that you mean business and that things will be different - like the Nationals when they signed Jayson Werth a year "early". Their top guys weren't ready yet, but they signed him to show what they planned to do. And I think we're at that point now. If there's ever a team that needs to show people things will be different, it's the Marlins. To your point, we have seen "different" as far as drafting, international spending, etc. Now we need to see it with FAs. I think a big component to the "we need to be doing more/moving forward out of rebuild stage" argument is because of the pitching we have NOW that's being wasted on lost seasons.

  3. I only like turkey in deli form. We don't even have it for Thanksgiving.

  4. I mean, I believe ultimately it's up to the player to decide whether to have surgery or not. Let's just hope this doesn't lead to surgery down the road delaying the recovery time.

  5. I don't know why Jeter is to blame for any of this. I also don't know why we're blaming anyone. The team is being built. It is not built yet. 2020 was not a full season and you can't compare it to any other season. Making the playoffs in 2020 meant little for our expectations over a full season. The more games you play, the higher the chances that slumps/hot streaks will even out and you have the true "best teams". The 2020 team likely doesn't make the playoffs over 162 games and that's ok. You have to give these guys a chance. They are continuosly drafting well and developing players. It's dumb to make a splash when it's not your final piece. We don't even know what that piece will be, although I suspect it will be a 2B or C

  6. TBD - just like the Marlins 2022 plans.
