  1. As long as we got back someone who can get three outs when called on without having to call the trauma unit I don't care if he 21, 31 or 41 and he can last through October.
  2. ...I don't know why Jorge Sosa is on this team, actually... I've been wondering the same thing myself. :notworthy
  3. I said recently and I wasn't being facetious that Cantu's greatest contribution to this team right now may be freeing up his roster spot for someone who can contribute. Perhaps luckily for me I was in an airport concourse when the eighth inning rolled around so aside from second-hand accounts I'll have to wait for the 2am replay of the game to see exactly happened.
  4. To some extent, if Cantu is the odd man out and it looks more and more like he is, the roster spot his departure creates plus the salary saved that can be allocated elsewhere are almost as important as the player compensation we get back. Will Carroll tweated a couple days ago that if the Marlins trade their players, they either need to take a contract back in return or pay our players salary, as part of the agreement with MLB and the union this past offseason. Which is unfortunate, because being able to save 3 mil this season to spend next year or what not would be awesome. That is
  5. Has anyone factored into their thinking re:Nunez' unavailability last night that we are about to start (counting tonight) nine games in a row - two against our division-leading Braves, then flying to San Francisco for four against the wildcard-leading Giants, followed by three against the NL West-leading Padres, and maybe giving Nunez a night off before the beginning of that run might not be the worst idea in the world? If it had been Fredi he would of panicked and perhaps thrown Nunez out there in desperation with no warning or preparation (going over batting characteristics, etc.) and th
  6. I have to run so you can have the last word but the supposition without evidence is that the throw would have beaten Bonifacio to third. You had just seen Stanton airmail one home that Tommy/Rich suggested may have been affected by the wet outfield grass and a slippery ball, which factors into not just the result but what took place on both plays, and conceivably could have gotten that runner were it not so high, but it seems you are more than confident that EB would have been out at third (the supposition as we'll never know, you - the collective "you" ) IF THE THROW WAS PERFECT. Aha...th
  7. i was on florida marlins site to see who pitching i see one page say Ricky Nolasco or say Volstad here link http://florida.marlins.mlb.com/news/probable_pitchers/index.jsp?c_id=fla other here http://florida.marlins.mlb.com/ticketing/singlegame.jsp?c_id=fla look under sunday game i hope is Nolasco because he will gave us better chance winnng the game Either Tommy or Rich said last night the mention of Nolasco has a typo, an error of some sort and should never had been published. The last I heard it was between Volstad or using several members of the relief corps to kluge together a
  8. 2003, that is incredibly unfair and ignorant. Ignorant? Get over yourself Pengy...I mean really you string together a bunch of suppositions none of which you can prove or even have any evidence of, and the frosting on the cake is I'm ignorant? Honestly, I expect better from you. We should be celebrating an enormously important victory and this is the focus of discussion here? Miscues happened all night, on both sides, I personally think Wagner's performance and how we took advantage of it is a much more spicy subject to be reveling in rather than beating this dead horse. And no
  9. Also, did Marlins2003 really say that there are people who want bonifacio to die? No bobby I didn't. I used a figure of speech. bobby I worry about you. Your obsession is getting worse and worse. If you really believe what you wrote, you really ought reach out for some mental health counseling. Try the school nurse maybe she can send you to someone before it's too late. Good luck next time.
  10. ...It wasn't the wet track though; he was just caught looking at the OF'er. That's a situation with 1 out and his speed that there should be no doubts. He should have confidence in his best ability and know that he has to and can get to 3rd base with 1 out in that situation. And you know all this definitively because you've been in that position so many times that instinctively you have absolutely know doubt you would have been able to choreograph the play better than he did, even though as inelegantly as he may of looked, he wound up with the desired result. It must be nice to be so

  12. Was it last night when Bonifacio watched Dexter Fowler in the outfield and in doing so got himself to third base with a triple and ultimately scored the winning run. Or was that so other guy named Emilio Bonifacio? I'm confused. But tonight on a wet track, down a run in the ninth inning he watches the outfielder and he's being accused of not running the bases properly. This is a perfect game played by imperfect people. You guys are impossible to satisfy especially when deep down inside even if you won't admit it, you hate the guy and no matter what he does it will never be enough in your
  13. There's a reason they settled on Murphy and not Luna and we may never know what that was, but clearly the choice was there to be made and they made it. Since both guys were regs for E-Rod you have to figure he knew who was going to fit in best up here (and that's being said by someone has been talking about Luna for the last six weeks or so).
  14. The problem Erick that you identified is a legitimate one, finding a quality starter would be great. No argument there. But part of what you saw tonight with only one lefty in the bullpen, admittedly one I personally don't have all the confidence in the world in and have said so, even as he's been doing well, is not having a second lefty and preferably one who can pitch to more than one or two batters - not having another guy that fits our needs in certain circumstances - guys who can contribute three or four nights a week each will, I believe, and I'm not speaking for anyone else, will con
