    They are also sending five Cardinal fans to attend all Marlin home games. They will sit behind home plate to give the appearance on TV that there are fans at the game.

    It's not what you think, It's money that has to go toward the upkeep of the clevelander pool.

    This isn’t a bad deal especially when you factor in Yelich’s potential death.

    You people are way to negative. This group has yet to even say one word publicly and you’re burying them. There will be tough decisions to make since they are inheriting a mess, but Loria being gone is a huge positive for this franchise. I also believe that Jeter would not be involved in something that will tarnish his image in the game. Give this some time and I think he will get this right. Lots of work ahead though. This is a good day.

    His changeup shows some potential and a 8.2 SwST% is not horrible although it's not good either. A 5.05 K/9 and a 3.95 BB/9 is simply not going to cut it but he's young and there's no downside of throwing him out there every 5 days at this point in the season. He has shown better strike out rates in the minors.

    I don’t know why they don’t do it. Also, if you look at the blueprint they’re trying to follow of championship teams that built from the ground up, they all had a guy they committed to before they reached the point of being great teams. The Astros gave Altuve an extension, the Cubs did it with Rizzo, the Royals committed to Salvador Perez. Etc. Even now, with a team like the Braves who have gotten a lot better, they built around Freddie Freeman. At some point, you have to keep some players. JT Realmuto is a keeper for many reasons. A case could’ve been made for Yelich, but maybe more so for Realmuto considering he’s a catcher. It’s incredibly difficult to find a catcher to build around. We would know that considering all the bad catchers we had in this franchise post-Pudge/before Realmuto arrived.

    As much as I hate to see Yelich go, this is my take as well. He will be a very good player for the Brewers, but this was a great trade for Miami. 1 for 3 on trades just proves Jeter can still hit for average. Don’t ask him to defend these moves though. Overrated in that aspect.

    But many analysts I have heard also agree that they did poorly in what they got in return. We all pretty much understood the inevitable, but we had hope that the old method of getting mediocre returns, relative to what many thought was a fair or good return, would end. So yea, we had to do it but....we did it poorly.

    The Marlins analytics department flow chart: 1. Is man baseball player? Yes > go to Q2 No > do not trade for 2. Is man expensive contract? Yes > do not trade for No > go to Q3 3. Is man fast? Or is man pitch fast? Yes > acquire immediately No > hang up phone and eat pudding cup

    We didn't get back a single top 100 prospect. If Alcantara pans out that would be great for the fish but that wouldn't make it the right trade today. He was their 9th best prospect. You couldn't do better than that for two years of Ozuna? Unless you are insinuating that Hill and Denbo and Jeter knew more than most scouts and felt that Alcantara was their best prospect and targeted him all along. I won't buy that for a minute. They settled when they didnt have to. You don't trade a 27 year old two time all star coming off a 37 homerun season with two years of control for someone's 9th rated prospect. That's not good negotiating skills whether Alcantara pans out or not.

    And this: https://www.si.com/mlb/2017/12/09/giancarlo-stanton-trade-yankees-marlins-brian-cashman-aaron-judge-gary-sanchez "And then there are the Marlins. What else can you call this trade other than an abject disaster for a franchise seemingly committed to being a pointless mess for the rest of its existence? Jeter can’t be faulted for the no-trade clause that Stanton used to blow up his plans; that was the parting gift of Jeffrey Loria, steadfast in his devotion to screwing the fans of south Florida. But no one forced Jeter to work out trades before even knowing if Stanton would approve them, and no one made him offload his franchise player despite Stanton’s refusals destroying Miami’s leverage. Conspiracy theories will follow Jeter trading his best player to his old team right after taking over, but it’s not that complicated. This is just an owner completely in over his head getting worked by someone far savvier. Pity, then, Marlins fans, who have stuck by this team through firesale after firesale only to be rewarded with yet another, and this time by an ownership group that looks poised to do less for the franchise than even Loria. By dealing Stanton, Jeter and company have showed that all they care about is the bottom line, not the product on the field. The result will be a completely awful and unwatchable team that should, to Jeter’s great joy, cost nothing. The Marlins will be burned down for the insurance money under the guise of rebuilding and getting rid of onerous debts that the owners would claim impeded winning. But a team in one of America’s largest media markets shouldn’t have to sell off its best assets for pennies on the dollar or punt on fielding even a nominally competitive squad. This is a terribly sad day for baseball in Miami, and a shameful moment for MLB, which never should have allowed Jeter and Bruce Sherman to buy the team."

    terrible move for Waltz. Loved him as the play by play guy. Preston and Conine are whatever, but Waltz deserves better.
