    So here's an initial attempt at a MIAMI script and on the uniforms...... Also, forgive the quality of the uniform pictures, I'm pissed since I had to take screenshots to show you all because photoshop is glitching and not letting me save in any capacity - photoshop file or otherwise (the save, save as, nor open dialog boxes will not open.......does anyone have a solution to this? Otherwise I'm going to lose everything I did in photoshop tonight, thanks in advance) Anyway, enjoy! I'm also open to suggestions!

    Ok, so I only had time to do part of my "assignment". I constructed the logo in Illustrator from the two images we've seen (the one on the Spring training ticket and the cap picture) I then put them over 4 different backgrounds. the Salmon and blue backgrounds do need a black outline to keep the drop shadow of those two colors from being washed out I then took those variations and created caps of them: Tomorrow I'll work on the "MIAMI" and "MARLINS" script to put on some uniforms. Hope you all enjoy this step.

    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.

    And now for today: All exterior signs displaying the current logo have been removed. Interior logos, and the Marlins Park logo on the roof remain intact for now, though. All banners Marlins banners that were on the parking garages were removed, leaving only advertising ones up Some seats above the home dugout have been removed now: The main part of Homer is still visible from the exterior: However! Homer is already being dismantled.......I found parts for it underneath the park in one of the loading bay: Work on homer's new spot in the north east corner hasn't begun yet, though. I also saw dumpsters full of debris and insulation on the west side in the plaza.

    Executing a borderline home invasion isn't the best way to convince a guy to wanna work for you long term. But seriously, the appropriate time is usually right after the postseason ends to give guys time to unwind and maybe take a vacation with their families. JT just spent eight months with the team, let the guy breathe before breathing down his neck with this stuff.

    So from the article, they describe the three tiers: He described “Homer’s” current home being transformed into a three-tier structure, with the lowest floor reserved for large groups. The upper two levels would offer all ticket holders a place to stand and watch the game on one side and admire the sights outside the park through the retractable glass walls on the other. “What we think is so great about Marlins Park is you have a beautiful ballpark with an unbelievable view of the downtown Miami skyline,” Bowers said. With “Homer” in place, he said, the plan can’t move forward. “It’s the only place you can do this.” I did a rendering of what I think it could look like:

    Last game reminded me of once I was at the urinal and I burped and farted all at the same time. Total loss of control.

    I think it is safe to assume most people agree that Caleb Smith has shown improvement over the course of the season. During the broadcast they crew highlighted Smith’s ability to “pound the zone” to get outs and specifically called attention to his ability to hide the ball during his delivery. Well, he didn’t “pound the zone” yesterday. Below is a chart from his last three starts in Marlins Park. These charts show the location of balls and called strikes. It is pretty clear that Smith was living outside of the strike zone yesterday. Perhaps this was intentional. Different opponent and all that. Well when you compare Smith’s balls and called strikes to that of Chen and Hernandez the previous two games it is clear that the Marlins were going after the strike zone against the Dodgers. Probably a location issue. Finally, when the Dodgers did their damage to Smith in the third inning the runs were scored on pitches on the edge and outside of the zone. The Dodgers I guess figured out this guy isn’t throwing strikes today and they made him pay in the third. Most pitchers aren’t great everyday. That is one of Severino’s go to lines. He re-tells this story a lot about how you have dominant stuff ten times a year, average stuff ten times, and bad stuff ten times. Some pitcher told him that once and he’s run with it. I’m not convinced and Holly doesn’t sound like he is either. I guess Smith was off yesterday. But I also thought the strike zone was tougher yesterday than it was for Chen and Hernandez. Different ump maybe. Or maybe with Realmuto getting the day off, Holaday doesn’t frame as well. That could be a stretch because I think framing value has largely gone away once umpires became wise to the fact that had become a big thing. Regardless yesterdays final looked really bad but it was largely a function of Smith having several things go against him and then once the runs poured in Mattingly took this as an opportunity to finally get Tazawa run out of town on a rail.
