    I pretty much agree with all of this. I was trying to think of our worst trades in franchise history and it is tough to think of one that could be worse than the Yelich one may end up.

    Calling the Yelich trade the worst in history is already a stretch... it's not like it was Yelich for Brinson straight up. We still have high hopes that Monte, Isan, and Yamamoto can all contribute at the big league level. Way too soon to write that trade off considering 3 of the 4 guys are meant to contribute to this team down the line. 

    I'll agree on both points. As of now I still say the Cabrera trade is still the worst in franchise history because none of the acquired players helped US, and we basically gave up Andrew Miller for nothing before he became a top tier reliever. The Yelich one just looks awful right now, but if at least one of those players pans out, then it's already better than the Cabrera trade.

    Yeah I was very tough on him, I'm way too reactionary sometimes for sure! I just know he can be great, and we're starting to see that I believe. Very comfy with him and Smith going into next season as our top 2 arms. But I think I'm even more excited to see who the last 3 will be to round out the rotation. Yams, Pablo, Dugger, Hernandez along with all the minor league guys 😍

    I have my worries about Caleb, especially when it comes to giving up the longball, but if they're mainly solo shots that's fine.

    Next couple years will be fun!

    don't really get your complaint here - the author said it can't be answered.  He said will they pay to be better or will they follow the same path?  He didn't make a definitive statement like "they're being the same old Marlins".

    The author said, "they've yet to answer the question." Which again, can't be answered yet.

    Excellent example of the ignorance that's out there...

    This "article" says that it's time for the organization to change their entire rebuild plan because the 2019 team sucks.

    This stupidity is ridiculous. You cannot evaluate the progress of the rebuild solely on the record of the 2019 team.

    The thought of a change on the process doesn't mean a complete overhaul to me?  If you're not constantly thinking and adjusting  on something as daunting and massive as overhauling an entire MLB organization then you might as well just sell and go buy art for a living.

    Gonna say you both are right on this one. Can't say it's time to "change" the plan but adjustments aren't a bad thing to make. And stuff.

    Survey response:

     

    Admit the baseball is juiced instead of claiming no knowledge after seeing AAA home runs increase by such a historic margin with the only change being moving to the MLB baseball.

    Their whole thing is, "we believe there's something different with the ball and we're testing things out" and yet, it was already proven things are massively different, and HOW those things are different, by ONE PERSON who didn't even use a lab. Just simple items and proper testing, on her own.

    And MLB is still fiddling around like, "well maaaaybe it could be ... this thing?"

    This reminds me of Stanton in 2014 when he got hit in the face and finished 2nd in the MVP race behind Kershaw and people were saying if he didn't get injured he might have won the award and I remember thinking his injury was the reason the Marlins missed the playoffs and that, to me, was more proof of Stanton's MVP case than Kershaw with the Dodgers. 

    Kershaw also missed a month, however, a lot of people forget that.

    The team is doing a lot of things that a normal team does in rebuilding, but they’ve done nothing to answer the biggest question: what happens after the rebuild is successful? Will the team invest in the franchise’s continued success where previous owners failed to or will this simply be the latest incident of the team’s limited fanbase having the rug pulled out from under them?

    This one kind of annoys me. That question can't be answered yet because the rebuild has yet to be successful. The obvious hope is that the team spends but if we end up hitting on so many draft picks, even that won't be necessary until about 2025, which would be amazing.

    Other than that, good read.

    Ironic that a player from the Dodgers will likely win the MVP now that another player was injured in a Marlins vs Brewers game....

    It may actually strengthen Yelich's case. Brewers miss the playoffs, they'll say "Yelich would have gotten them there. Boom."

    Mariano Rivera just did that so it's just not impressive anymore. Gallen is going to get more than 100%. Not only will 100% of the living writers vote for him, but they will find envelopes of all the voting eligible writers who have passed away giving their votes to Gallen as well.

    I don't even need you to show proof for this, it's obviously going to be true.
