  1. Hmm, I wonder what person, employed by the team, could maybe have prevented him from going a third time through....
  2. I like Elieser, but I think he's what we already saw: a guy who can give you 5 or 6 strong innings every 5 days, but not a guy who is going to go deep into 7th or 8th innings very often. That's definitely someone who belongs in a good team's starting rotation, though. I like Elieser as a 3/4 in a good rotation behind Sandy and PLop. Sixto will obviously be back in the rotation sooner or later, but I agree that he needs to earn it back because he looked very hittable the second (or third) time a team faced him. He needs to work on varying his pitches in the offseason and in Spring Training. We
  3. Projecting the rotation, Mattingly noted three who would be considered “locks.” He mentioned Sandy Alcantara, Pablo López and Elieser Hernandez, who missed the final month and the playoffs due to a strained right lat. Left off the “locked list” were rookies Sixto Sánchez and Trevor Rogers, both of whom made their MLB debuts this season and pitched in the postseason. That doesn’t mean either won’t be in the rotation at the start of 2021, but Mattingly reminds they may need some more Minor League polish. “We know what Sixto showed he’s capable of,” Mattingly said. “We’ve also seen some
  4. Imagine wearing a 2020 Chicago Cubs Postseason! shirt or hat
  5. The Marlins outperformed this year and left us all excited for 2021! Brandon Kintzler, Yimi Garcia, Brad Boxberger, Nick Vincent, and Matt Joyce are the relevant free agents. We may need to rebuild the whole bullpen, and we should be looking at either signing or acquiring a new catcher. Thoughts?
  6. that was the hardest Joyce has hit the ball in months!
  7. so who in here is going to be mad that Jazz is smiling even though we're losing?
  8. dude we could have Mike Trout, Cody Bellinger, Mookie Betts, and Juan Soto on the roster, and we still would have had Matt Joyce batting with the bases loaded in yesterday's game.
  9. I will literally eat a piece of Don Mattingly's shit if Matt Joyce hits two grand slams in this inning.
  10. Yeah, I think Cervelli would have been huge for Alfaro. I hope the Marlins can keep him around as a catching coach or something like that. Didn't we have Brian Schneider in that role at some point?
  11. Obviously I'd be thrilled to get Realmuto back, but I don't think that's happening. I wouldn't be mad at James McCann being a Marlin. Other than that, I think we'd have to try to trade for a catcher, or just hand the job back to Wallach and Alfaro. Someone like Wieters, Castro, or Flowers would be decent as a depth piece to help Alfaro improve, but coming off a playoff season, I don't think we want "guys to help other guys improve" at such an important position. We'll want "guys already good enough to play"
  12. We're very unlikely to win this game, but it would be nice to get a run or two, just to not have back to back shutouts.
  13. Isan hasn't shown me anything at all that makes me think he'll figure it out at the big league level. His swing is way too long to hit good pitching. I hope I'm wrong, but I absolutely would not move Anderson for a guy like Isan.
  14. Here are the free agent catchers available before next season: Alex Avila (34) Drew Butera (37) Welington Castillo (34) Jason Castro (34) Robinson Chirinos (36) — $6.5MM club option with a $1MM buyout Tyler Flowers (35) Bryan Holaday (33) Erik Kratz (41) Sandy Leon (32) Jeff Mathis (38) James McCann (31) Yadier Molina (38) Roberto Perez (32) — $5.5MM club option with a $450K buyout Wilson Ramos (33) — $10MM club option with a $1.5MM buyout J.T. Realmuto (30) Austin Romine (32) Kurt Suzuki (37) Stephen Vogt (36) — $3MM club option with a $500K buyou
  15. I don't like moving Brian Anderson to the OF. He's so good at 3B, and we have decent enough outfield depth. We need to stop messing with his defense, keep him at 3B, and sign him to a short extension.
