    It should, but not as important as his expected adjusted HNHZY-. Or even better, his Batting Leverage Opportunities With Massive Expectations, aka BLOWME. Very advanced stat there.

    You can believe in whatever stats you want to believe in, I don't care what you enjoy. I choose to not use them because if a guy has a good HNHZY+, it doesn't mean much to me. I saw enough evidence of the faults in having so many stats when there became ways to prove any point about any player. You can use some 4 letter stat and show me why Player A is better than Player B. Then I can reference a five letter one with a plus sign next to it and prove the opposite. Totally cool that some people like them and believe in them though.

    Because most are college seniors who will never be drafted again so they aren't able to ask for more. They either take it or leave it and never get signed at all. And even then the lower amount is a huge improvement of what they were getting before so they take it. Yes there's a huge gap between 100,000 and 300,000 but if you weren't making much before then even the 100,000 is an excellent amount at this point so they take it.

    No one is requiring anyone to understand advanced stats in order to enjoy baseball. In the same way I can enjoy the weather without a meteorology degree, you can certainly enjoy baseball without understanding why the teams shift the infield or bat Castro 4th. However, I don't expect my complaints about the weather to have much merit given I know very little about how clouds move or storms develop. This is a commonly held position, but also a straw man argument. Do you have any examples of the analytics community sharply dividing on the analysis of certain players or strategies? More often than not the opposite happens. Because most baseball analysts are using similar statistics and similar statistical methodologies and best practices, there tends to exist more consensus, bordering on echo chamber risks, than bitter disagreements. I can think of, in the last 15 years, maybe 3 or 4 hotly debated topics within the analytics community (aging curves, wOBA vs tAV, and a few other small ones). More often than not, new statistics created say similar things to the old ones -- xFIP, SIERA, and DRA all agree with FIP and even ERA that Clayton Kershaw is great. This of course is not say that a fella, let's call him Hodd Tollandsworth, can't dig up weird, useless, esoteric stats to build his own narratives. If today he feels like Rojas is clutch sometimes but not all times, he'll dig up Rojas's batting average with runners in scoring position during the last 3 day games. That's a split of a split of a split -- all using a 200-year-old statistic from when the game was VERY different. Hodd's stats? Yeah, those are utterly useless and a stain in the general baseball conversation.

    If they killed, they'd be in jail and wouldn't be able to make the debut. Think before you speak.

    Hey I appreciate all the responses. I see that a lot of you have had similar experiences at the ballpark. I'm just as tired of the attendance narrative that infects everything Marlins. This was never meant to come as another complaint in a long line of them. I was genuinely dejected leaving the stadium. I agree with all the factors (Monday game vs cardinals with no runs), but the place was LIFELESS. I agree in general with Jeter's plan to rebuild the farm system....I'm just not sure how much longer baseball in Miami can go on like this.

    Ballpark atmosphere in terms of the on field product (as in nothing to do with concessions and music and other between innings entertainment) is very dependent on if the team is good (or at least playing well such as a few weeks ago) and on how much offense there is. There isn't much that can be done when the team stinks and isn't scoring runs. And I say about scoring runs because we could be a one hundred loss team and the home fans will still be invested in an individual game if they see home runs and multiple baserunners as those things create more exciting on field situations even if the team ultimately loses.

    If I understand it right... They drafted college seniors and juniors who aren't gonna demand more money and so they sign those guys below value and that allows them to allocate the saved money to sign the first rounders to higher bonuses to ensure they sign. It's either smart use of the money or it's just #CheapJeter... you decide which you want it to be.

    Is it weird that I enrolled my kid in all day summer camp so that he can get off my ps4 and I finally get some real time on this game? Don't tell the wife though.

    Welcome aboard! This city has shown they go to sporting events when the team is playing well. Doesn't matter if they're cuban or Turkish, if there's a good team on the field people will come. No one came to see Hechavarria, and no one has declared their allegience to the marlins for signing the Mesa brothers. I'm cuban, but I don't want this team trying to use the "hispanic" card to draw people in. Let's build a classic baseball culture in the city and let it cultivate over generations like the other teams have.

    YOUR Miami Marlins host Western Pennsylvania's own Pirates at Marlins Park in muggy Miami, Florida. Trevor "Dicks" Richards (3-6, 3.31 ERA) takes on Steven "Don't Taze Me" Brault (2-1, 5.05 ERA) in the opening game of the series. According to Baseball Reference's WAR calculation (rWAR), Trevor Richards has been the best pitcher the Marlins have so far this season. He is fifth according to calculations on Fangraphs (fWAR). (If you're wondering why I personally take Fangraphs WAR more seriously, Baseball Reference says that Miguel Rojas has been the second most valuable player on the Marlins roster this season.)

    Sure, I get that. But I also like our projected lineup better with another Top 100 in the fold. I have nothing against Caleb, but I think this is a prime chance to capture surplus value. Again, all hinging on the fact of a team willing to pay up. He will be 28/29 next year, and hasn’t thrown more than 77IP in a big league season to date. If someone wants to pay up for him, I’m all ears

    Someone pointed it out on another forum. We've allowed the fewest runs in the NL East.

    I understand the value of pitching depth, but this is the reason I want to trade Caleb (with the assumption that his market value isn’t ridiculously low). If we could grab a top 75-100 prospect for him with some other intriguing bats, sign me up. You’re still looking at a 2020/2021 staff of - 1. Sixto 2. Pablo 3. Sandy 4. Gallen 5. Richards Depth - Yamamoto, Neidert, Garrett, Rogers, Cabrera. And that’s with Guzman and Holloway getting moved to the pen

    There's no way they can sign all the draft picks from this year. The Marlins can only sign the ones that they drafted.

    Fangraphs says Alfaro has been our most valuable player, followed by Cooper and Anderson (tie), Neil Walker, and Harold Ramirez, THEN Miggy Ro.

    2 walks, 3 hits, 0 runs, 5 strikeouts in 7 IP. I don't see any issues last night from him. An extremely solid debut.

    There are people who would kill for a debut as solid as that one. Good for him.

    You'll have plenty of people who consider the traditional ballpark experience boring though. Especially in a city like this where there are so many cultures represented, so many other fanbases represented, and honestly so many other entertainment options as well. Gotta do things to try and make the place fun beyond the on field product. If they don't and just keep it "traditional" you'll have a lot of people complaining that they don't try and do more either... especially when the team sucks. With that said, not all of it is nonsense... what team doesn't do mid inning entertainment segments these days? Would you rather watch the defense do their warm up throws in complete silence? And what's wrong with Latin music? It's popular music in this city. It's not all bad music and enough people like it.

    I wish it was just a traditional ballpark experience. Keep the walkup songs and mid inning organ, drop the dancers, spanglish, mid inning games/segements, and latin music. If the team sucks then so be it. Obviously that needs to be fixed, but all the nonsense on the side is a slap in the face. Just let me watch my shitty team in peace.

    They are a bad team with a bad manager. This is to be expected. The win streak wasn’t going to last long and they can only play over their heads for so long until they fall back down to earth. Sad thing is, there is currently 3 other teams that are even worse than the Fish now. Go go MLB parity....

    If it were that easy, sure. Marlins are not in a position right now to be giving up prospects to get MLB players, however. It's not as simple as "go get him." This team will be good in a couple years should things go mostly to plan and people will go. Welcome to the site, and I hope you enjoy your stay!
