  1. I could be wrong here, but isn't it very unorthodox to open the season with a four-game series?
  2. I stand by my assertion that the Marlins are actually better than the Mets when healthy. Not that that's exactly saying much.
  3. The Mets aren't even much better than the Marlins. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure they're better at all if both teams are at full strength. The only reason why they are even in the playoff hunt is because they are in the NL East.
  4. I don't hate the Mets nearly as much as I used to, but man; beating them late in the season never gets old.
  5. Sandy, Rogers and Pablo have the top three spots locked down. After that, it's anybody's guess. My prediction is Sixto and Luzardo getting the fourth and fifth spots.
  6. Where did I say anything about other teams' stars? All I said is that Sixto has ace potential. I never said I wouldn't be open to moving him for the right return. I have seen several posts saying things like he has been a non-factor and hasn't been on the field, and all I was saying was that those claims were exaggerated and that it's too early to essentially write him off.
  7. See but here's the thing: the contract didn't look THAT bad at that time. He was coming off of one of the best seasons in recent history, if not ever. He was a dominant hitter and a Gold Glove-caliber outfielder. It only looks bad now because of the injuries. Hindsight is 20/20. I could be wrong, but I don't seem to remember anyone complaining about Stanton's contract in 2017. It's only been the last couple of years with him missing extensive time that it has become such an issue. Do you think the Yanks would want to reverse the trade if Stanton were healthy and smashing 40-50 homers a year? The fact of the matter is that we literally got nothing of consequence in terms of players in return for a guy who was, at the time, the best player in baseball. That trade was a bad one no matter how you spin it.
  8. That's fair, but I don't think it needs as much of a major overhaul as people are letting on. Adding a couple of cheap pieces could make all the difference. Again, bullpens are typically a crapshoot. What's great one year may suck the next and vice versa.
  9. The problem is that we got absolutely nothing of consequence for a guy who was probably the best player on the planet at the time (or at the very least top 3-5). I understand Jeter wanted to get out from under the contract, but for a guy who just hit 59 home runs and won an MVP, you need to get something other than financial relief. His contract also did not look bad at the time given the monster season he had just had. Keep in mind that I'm one of the more positive posters here when it comes to the FO, but the Stanton trade was bad.
  10. I mean it's been one season. It's not like he has been on and off the IL for three years straight. The kid is 23 and entered 2021 ranked as the No. 6 prospect in all of baseball. He also showed significant promise last year. Way, wayyyy too soon to throw in the towel on him.
  11. This. The Marlins rank fourth in the majors in bullpen ERA and fifth in WHIP. It hasn't been nearly as bad as people are making it out to be. As far as next season? Bullpens are, and always have been, largely a crapshoot. Yeah you get your elite relievers every now and then, but for every Josh Hader there are 20 Yimi Garcias, if not more. Just throw some of our live arms (Bender, Holloway, etc.) in there, add a couple of cheap options in FA or through small trades and hope for the best.
  12. I mean, I personally find our young star pitchers to be incredibly exciting. We all knew the lineup would suck going into this season. It's part of the process, and the million and one injuries the Marlins have had haven't helped matters, either.
  13. Well, that's due to injuries this year. The kid showed last season he has the potential to be an absolute stud. Albeit, it was a very small sample size, but he was a top prospect for a reason. I have a lot of confidence in him becoming a frontline starter for us. Possibly even the ace. We'll see.
  14. Right, but apparently, the Yankees are just looking to dump Voit. If the Marlins can get him on the cheap, I would do it. Gives us another bat. Worst case scenario, he is a valuable bat off the bench (especially if the DH comes to the NL). Not making any money.
  15. Yankees are shopping Luke Voit. Wouldn't mind taking a flier on him. Really good bat when healthy.
