  1. I'll be honest: I'm surprised they even have the Marlins at 75 wins. I'm used to everyone saying we're a 65-70 win team.
  2. Imagine completely discounting a 24-year-old hitter based on 223 big-league plate appearances.
  3. The Thai curry wing sauce at Buffalo Wild Wings. Also, the fact that no one has mentioned Buffalo sauce in general yet concerns me.
  4. Like the people who were devastated when we traded Jordan Yamamoto? Lol. And in all seriousness, I actually would have been perfectly cool with bringing Ozuna back, but on something like a two-year deal. There was no way I would have wanted the Marlins to give a four-year contract to a 30-year-old wildly inconsistent hitter who is rapidly declining in the field. Perhaps the DH will become a thing in the NL at some point during his contract, but if it doesn't, I do not like Ozuna on a four-year deal in the long run. Heck, even if the MLB does institute a league-wide DH, I'm still not
  5. He was outstanding in AAA in 2019 (.305/.395/.578 with 26 homers), so this type of production is not completely out of the realm of possibility. I'd honestly be thrilled if he hit somewhere between 15-20 homers provided that his slash line were good enough overall.
  6. First mediocre Marlins player to get traded midseason and suddenly be dubbed the second coming of Babe Ruth
  7. Ozuna has one of the strangest career trajectories I have ever seen.
  8. Over $40 million a year those first two seasons for a guy who has only had two sub-4.00 ERA seasons throughout his entire nine-year career, one of which was a shortened campaign in which Bauer made 11 starts. Knock yourselves out, LA.
  9. But we lost Jordan Yamamoto, who is apparently Pedro Martinez now.
  10. We have also gotten some pretty damn good returns (e.g. the Realmuto trade was fantastic). Like @SilverBullet said: the Yelich trade was pretty universally praised at the time, and not a single soul here expected Yelich to suddenly post a 1.000 OPS the following year (and I am someone who has always seen big-time potential in Yelich). I guarantee not a single soul in the Brewers organization did, either. Yelich not only stagnated at the plate in his final season here, but he also declined rather significantly in the field, going from a Gold Glove-caliber outfielder to an average defe
  11. I hope he is happy and healthy, but I don't hope anyone becomes a decent contributor for the Mets lol. Screw the Mets.
  12. I don't know. A .200 difference in OPS is very, very significant. I'm not saying he is going to suddenly become a bum at the plate, but I certainly don't think he'll be posting .900+ OPSes anymore.
  13. Arenado's career splits at and away from Coors: Home: .322/.376/.609 Away: .263/.322/.471 He is a fantastic third baseman, but but to say that I am a bit worried about how his offense will look in St. Louis is putting it lightly.
  14. Dude was ridiculously underrated his entire MLB career. Great guy, too. Happy he's going home.
  15. That's pretty funny considering that the Giants are the only one of those four big-market teams you mentioned that have made any notable signings this offseason, and that's if you even count Kevin Gausman and Anthony DeSclafani as "notable." Even funnier is the fact that the Giants have stunk for the last six years. Heck, we have been more active than the Yankees, who haven't won a World Series in over a decade. Also, the Nationals, Astros and Royals have all won championships since 2015. I think it's safe to say that none of those clubs are "big-market" teams. What's more, the
