    2018 attendance on par with 2017?

    The reported attendance last year was 1,651,997. The reported attendance this year is about half that. So we are supposed to believe that last year’s “real” attendance was half of what was reported? I don’t buy that at all.

    Will we avoid 100 losses?

    Could be. I assume that most on here will say that they don't care if the Marlins play that game or not.

    Is Joe right or wrong?

    I agree with all of that. But at the time (if my memory is correct) it sounded like both Yelich and Realmuto expressed displeasure at the other trades and wanted out. They traded Yelich and not JT, probably because they got what they believed to be a good return for Yelich but not JT. Then before this season in the media they portrayed Yelich to be a malcontent and JT to be a team player. Seemed disingenuous to me.

    Maybe so but should have kept Yelich. No reason to trade him (unlike Stanton and Ozo).

    If nothing matters then nobody is at fault and there is nothing to criticize. Just move along and don’t ask questions. I seem to remember that some of you guys were bragging early in the year that the team was on the same win/loss pace as last year so wins/losses mattered at some point.

    What does it mean to “matter”? I guess if you really don’t care whether they win or lose then it doesn’t matter to you. But I would prefer that they lose as few games as possible. And I certainly don’t want them to reach the 100 loss benchmark.

    Wtf is up with you guys constantly telling each other that nothing matters. Why are you even posting? Of course it matters.

    Comunidad 305

    Doing "something new" is not an effective marketing strategy. They are obviously doubling down on the "Latin" appeal, which has not been tried before. But that could also turn off other fans who would rather hear traditional baseball noises (organ music, etc..) instead of really loud Latin music. But the Comunidad 305 idea just sounds like a ridiculous gimmick, thought up by people who don't understand local culture.

    LOL

    I find the "wins and losses don't matter" and "I don't care about wins and losses" comments infuriating. People with this attitude are not real fans, imo. If you invest enough in a team to buy tickets to games, attend games, watch games on tv, etc..., how is it possible not to care whether they win or lose?

    The Marlins are making a huge season ticket/marketing push this year, in a way they have not done in the past. This is commendable, but also likely necessary. They have probably lost money hand over fist this year.

    Brinson starting rehab assignment in AA

    This is what bothers me more and more. I get that fans opposed to "the process" are generally ridiculed on this board. But "the process" is dependent in large part on making the right personnel decisions. "Rebuilding" by trading your best players and getting marginal prospects in return does not work.

    Urena hits Acuna Jr with first pitch

    Who says Urena "won't factor into future plans". He certainly will be around next year, and presumably in the rotation. He's one of our better starters. There is no way he will be released over this. Now, I certainly hope they talk to him sternly behind closed doors.

    First Time Visitor - A Couple Of Questions

    There are no pubs or bars right around the stadium other than those connected with the stadium. Somebody mentioned the Clevelander and then there is a big tent like structure (Fifth Base) on the other side of the stadium. These places are open before and after the game. But, for a weeknight game the attendance will probably be very poor so there won't be many people in those bars. If you're looking to have fun pre and post game, you'd be better off on the Beach.

    Urena hits Acuna Jr with first pitch

    I don’t mind throwing at guys (not at the head of course) in the right circumstances. But the Braves, and especially Acuna, have kicked our asses for three games; total domination. It is bush league to throw at him in that situation, on the first pitch no less. And now he may be hurt. This is embarrassing.

    2020 TV Deal: Future of the Marlins as we know it?

    I think the attendance - fans in seats - is less this year. It is anecdotal, based on my attending 25-30 games both years. But there seems to be fewer fans this year. How much fewer, I don't know. 1,000 a game? 2,000 a game? That would certainly be logical, wouldn't it?
