  1. So I literally got off work and went to the library and was just in time for the bottom of the 9th. I think i'm good luck, lol. Either way, this is such a huge win! Way to go, guys!
  2. "...we're the only announcers that wear Tommy Bahama shirts..." I literally LOL'd to that.Love Rich!
  3. VERY excite for this one! We match up extremely well on paper vs. these Nats including Hanley's dominance of Marquis. Not to set myself up for a letdown, but I kind of expect a dominating performance from the ball club tonight. Picks to click: obviously Hanley and Anibal Sanchez.
  4. I hope that Javier can rebound, he performed pretty poorly today and our defense was back to its old self. Plenty of hits, just not timely.
  5. I have no plans tonight. What I would give to live within driving distance of Sun Life.
  6. Went with Buck.....what a way to make a splash (no pun intended). JJ outstanding and the win was well deserved. And the bullpen was actually fun to watch.
  7. Looks like Infante will man 2nd and Dominguez/Helms/Bonifacio will handle the hot corner. If Dominguez is not ready, why not just put Bonifacio at CF and Coghlan at 3rd? I guess they want to give Coghlan as much prep in center as possible. Still, not the biggest fan of this. Thoughts? Marlins confident Coghlan can man center By Joe Frisaro / MLB.com | 12/03/10 2:55 PM EST MIAMI -- On short notice, Chris Coghlan proved in 2009 that he could adapt to left field. He went on to win the National League Rookie of the Year Award that season. The Marlins are confident that Coghlan can now make a similar adjustment to center field. After trading Cameron Maybin to the Padres a few weeks ago, Florida informed Coghlan that he would be switched to center field. The decision to play the 25-year-old in center came several months after the Marlins had asked him to move from the outfield to third base. The fact that Coghlan has never played a game at the professional level in center field raises questions about whether the club is setting itself up for another move. President of baseball operations Admin Beinfest said on Friday that isn't the case. "We like Chris Coghlan. We like him in this lineup," Beinfest said. "The way he adapted to left field -- he developed into a pretty good left fielder in a short period of time. We feel he can do that in center field. As long as the knee is healthy, and there is no reason to believe it is not going to be, he has good instincts on the baseball field. We think he's going to be a good center fielder." Coghlan is recovering from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. His recovery is on track, and he is expected to be at full strength when Spring Training opens. The Marlins have already had an active offseason, which is one reason why they aren't expected to make a big splash at the Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., beginning Monday. "I know there is going to be some speculation about center field," Beinfest said. "But when we made the move for Cameron, we had already had that internal discussion. We thought Chris could handle center field." A natural infielder, Coghlan had been bracing to move to third base since Jorge Cantu was traded to the Rangers in July. But Coghlan suffered his meniscus tear and missed the rest of the season. Beinfest didn't rule out the possibility of Coghlan someday returning to the infield, but the organization clearly wants his focus to be strictly on center. "We don't want to play pinball with Chris," Beinfest said. "He's an important part of this team. I don't think anybody wants to be bounced around. I explained that to him when I spoke to him. I said, 'You're not going to get a call from me every couple of months with a new idea.' "That's part of the attraction of Chris as a player, though. He has versatility. We know he can play second, we know he can play third. We know he can play left field. We have a very good feeling that he can play center field. Those are all good attributes." The knee injury limited Coghlan to 91 games this past season, and he batted .268. In left field, he had a .994 fielding percentage and seven assists. With Coghlan projected in center field, the Marlins are giving prospect Matt Dominguez every chance to win the third-base job. Defensively, Dominguez draws comparisons to Mike Lowell with the way he handles the position. How he adapts to big league pitching is the question. At Jacksonville, Dominguez batted .252 with 14 homers and 81 RBIs. If Dominguez isn't considered ready, the Marlins may consider going with Wes Helms or Emilio Bonifacio at third base. Another possibility, Beinfest said, is Omar Infante, who right now is projected at second base. There could be a scenario where Bonifacio plays second base and Infante plays third. "Matt Dominguez will come in and complete," Beinfest said. "Wes Helms can play over there. If it works out that [infante] is at third, and Bonifacio is at second, and that's our best club at the start of the year, so be it. "We have some people who can move around and help us defensively improve the club."]
  8. Great news, but I'm staying patient for it to become official. I'm happy that other people are pleased as well!
  9. Why is Alex Gordon a fail? I wouldn't Maybin for him straight up, but he's a similar spec in that he's a big-upside guy, he's shown flashes, but he has ultimately been disappointing. My fail was eluding to the fact that a Maybin for Gordon trade would be effing terrible. Gordon could, I guess, be ok, but a straight up trade involving those two would do way more detriment than help.
  10. 12:25am: The Marlins have also discussed Maybin with the Royals, according to Frisaro (Twitter link). Alex Gordon? It just seems like the FO would be more willing to hang onto Maybin for another season giving their committment to defense up the middle. Unless, they're afraid he's on his way to Miller/Hermida-ism. FAIL
  11. I'M SO HAPPY FOR CODY!!!!! Congrats to San Fran...classy, classy city!
  12. Yeah, it's a nice story but I want the Phillies out of the post season asap along with the Braves. Come on! It was a historic performance by Roy Halladay and all you can say is that?
  13. To be honest, I wouldn't be pissed if Philly won the whole damn thing this year. They're a great team and they have one of my favorite pitchers ever. Yeah they're fans are god-awful, but Doc deserves it.
  14. Incredible! I mean this guy has absolute ice water running through his veins! Philly or not, Roy Halladay is a hall of famer and one of my favorite pitchers of all time and I'm proud to say I witnessed his no-hitter tonight! I don't think any Marlin fan is angered to see Doc throw a no hitter to put the Phillies up 1-0 in the NLDS.
  15. Mendez was excellent. He definitely exceeded expectations. :thumbup We didn't have the most timely hitting, but Stanton's homer was great and what more can you say about Daniel in 2010? Actually a pretty fun game to watch and it was the bomb to see LoMo in the starting lineup. He definitely gets badass points for that. Can we continue with the freak injuries? Good Lord it's getting ridiculous. It was great to see Ceda make his first ML appearance, but I was wondering how that would affect his composure. Overall, I enjoyed the game and I'll be monitoring game 2 at work tonight. Luckily I get off in time to see the last couple innings.
  16. LoMo in the starting lineup, rocking the shiner! What a champ!!!!!
  17. Major props to MrandMrsFish and whoever else takes over the DFR for the time being! Also, does anyone know where I can find any videos of Stanton from this year? He has 12..no...13 home runs that I need to see! He did it AGAIN today!!
  18. What a crowd! God we are f***ing pathetic. I honestly don't know how the players get pumped to play a game when they see all the empty seats. Not trying to justify it, but im sure people are at home watching the Heat get eliminated. No doubt there. The only thing is, we will have a crowd this pathetic next week too.
