    Archer wants TB to expedite youth movemet

    It was developed by people who couldn't hit a f-ing baseball.

    Manfred, The Commish

    Not a fan at all. I don't like a lot of the changes that have been made - slide rules, intentional walks, etc. They've created situations that are critical to the outcome of games for 100 years, and they've just written them off. It took the replays a while to grow on me, but I'm good with them now. The other rule changes, I won't be good with - they've changed the way the game is played (same thing they're doing in football).

    Marlins Trade News / Rumors

    I guess we'll see whether DD's finger is broken or not. A lot of times, that isn't determined until after the game. If it is, he'll likely be staying....

    Marlins showing some improvement

    I don't disagree with you, but it's unfair to hold this current ownership group accountable for the complete incompetence of the last. I think we're also going to see in the next year whether Hill had been handcuffed in the past, or if he's truly incompetent as well. If he's incompetent, I don't think he will be here long.

    Barraclough, Conley, Steckenrider

    That's exactly what it is. He's setting the bar. It's always easier to come down in asking price than it is to go up.

    Marlins Trade News / Rumors

    I'm not implying that we give him away, but we can't be scared to trade him because he "might" develop into a good pitcher like Miller & Hand did. We don't have the luxury of a deep farm system at this point (which is a shame, since we used to have one of the best, and we have nothing to show for it). We are still at a point in the build/rebuild that we're multiplying, not adding yet. We have to build a solid ML roster, but we have to build depth behind it too. All of that said, we don't ever trade for the sake of trading. If there isn't a good return, hold onto him.

    That says that we have a horrible track record of developing players, not that there was a couple of diamonds in the rough. If Conley somehow becomes a superstar, but we get a few prospects and return, that's a chance I'm willing to take. We have to wash our hands of the previous management, and move forward - that includes the development of our prospects.

    Nationals Recently "Checked In" on J.T. Realmuto

    Would you rather have a season like the Mets are having?

    Without any money, and Stanton's ballooning contract.

    Sandy Alcantara being called up

    If he can control his pitches consistently, he ought to to really good. He had incredible movement on all of his pitches, and worked the bottom of the zone, for the most part. Really happy about this outing.

    Nationals Recently "Checked In" on J.T. Realmuto

    I don't mind the deferred payments, as long as your profitable. The last thing you want is for a players salary to cripple you for years after he's gone. As long as it makes business sense, absolutely! Just to make sure we're clear, I was 100% kidding about that pay structure. I actually would love to see them have the ability to front-load, so that we get a bargain on the back end of the contract, while acquiring more talent. We obviously have to have the funds to do so, but you can also only do that with a certain type a player.

    I don't know what you're talking about. Something along the lines of 5/100 (1:$5M, 2:$8M, 3:$17M, 4:$30M, 5:$40M) that's solid - ask Jeffrey Loria!

    ...and right as I hit "Submit", Castro hits a HR. In that case, you can't win if you can't score at least two...
