    I could be wrong here, but I don't think he ever publicly requested a trade. Jeter came in and basically said "we're trading you" and then attempted to trade him to the two clubs that Stanton specifically asked not to be traded to (I wanna say it was Boston and either San Francisco or St. Louis?), so I don't blame him for being upset with the way things were handled. Stanton could have begged to stay, and we still wouldn't have kept him. He just wasn't part of Jeter's plans.

    Stanton was great here and single-handedly kept us in the playoff hunt in 2017, and I actually don't think we will ever see someone do what he did for that stretch again in our lifetimes. He was 2001 Barry Bonds level from July through the end of the season, and without the help of PEDs.

    He was always a stand-up guy and I'll forever be grateful for what he did here. He isn't quite Miggy, but he certainly means a lot to this organization.

    Remember I’m also a lifelong Red Sox Fan so seeing him in pinstripes makes him look like Hitler to me lol

    He was a great player here, great in the community, his request to be traded and his shit talking was specifically about the organization and it's clown show antics, he was very complimentary of the city and the fanbase, no reason to boo him and anyways he already came back and was cheered here before. 

    Let me be salty!

  3. It’s odd that the Yankees felt they needed another power hitter who strikes out a third of the time. Their lineup issues are due to the fact that that’s pretty much all they have outside of Lamahieu, who isn’t even producing like himself this season.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe Big G came back in 2018 to then Marlins Park. But he will probably get a standing O. Franchise’s HR leader, probably will be for awhile 😄

    Not if Bryan De La Cruz has something to say about it.

  5. He publicly requested to be traded, publicly criticized trades the Marlins made on Twitter, talked a house of shit in his Yankees press conference. I’m not applauding him, he’d probably tear his hamstring trying to thank the crowd anyway.

  6. No but honestly, good teams keep players like him around. You don’t win 100 games by having a good starting lineup, half of those guys will inevitably spend time on the IL. You win 100 games by having good depth to step in and play when that inevitably happens

    Gotta play dude from Houston everyday right? 

    Oh for sure, even when Sanchez comes back. Sanchez in Left, De La Cruz in Center and whoever they decide to replace Duvall in right when he’s traded (I’d assume Brinson gets it to give him one last chance to show what he’s got)

    I mean even then your fingers are on the back of the controller what in the world would cause a pinkie break? Lmao 

    I don’t play a single game other than a crossword puzzle app I have and even I know there are PC games that don’t require a controller 😂

    Keeping someone who takes up a roster space because they make people laugh isn't the best of decisions. I love Aguilar as well and he's a decent bat. If some team really wanted to overpay though. Cya. Fish have pretty much said he ain't moving though anyway.

    Oh no, I don’t mean that way thought that doesn’t hurt lol I mean that they rile the guys up and keep people motivated. When you’re playing 162 games a season with bumps and bruises and haven’t seen your family in months, that really makes a difference.

    DH comes to NL next season.  Room for him.

    That’s another thing that really keeps me from wanting to pull the trigger. Is that for sure though, did they already agree to it?

    What are everyone’s thoughts on Jesus Aguilar’s future with the Marlins?

    Should we trade him in the next few days?

    Should we extend him beyond this season?

    Should we keep just because his name is Jesus?

    Eh, he’s a tough one, cause he should be able to get at least a pretty good bullpen arm but the team needs his kind of personality around. He’s like Miggy in that he elevates the people around him.

    Pruitt is a 31 year old who doesn't strike anyone out and gives up a lot of runs.


    Probably our next closer, if you ask Don Mattingly

    They need someone to add to the bullpen that will give up 6 runs every time out. How else are they going to secretly tank the Rest of season for a top pick next year?

  13. I just hope they don’t go after Jo Adell, dude seems to have “bust” written all over him and I can’t handle another Brinson Situation. I understand he hasn’t had much experience in the big leagues but it’s not the struggles per se, but the way he struggled that put me off. And they agree cause he hasn’t come back up this season so they obviously don’t think he’s ready

    "The 23-year-old was expected to be a key part of Oakland’s rotation this year but struggled mightily, pitching to a 6.87 ERA in 13 appearances, and missed time after breaking the pinkie on his pitching hand while playing video games in early May."


    love him already


    All I hear is a buy low opportunity lol If he had seen immediate success he would have cost us a fortune.

    I feel like I've heard this surgery for someone else but I can't remember who... anyone else remember this or just me? 

    Chris Archer is one, and we can all see how bad that’s affected him. He wasn’t lights out before but he’s borderline useless now

    That makes sense and we could always counter trade for another CF like Eric mentioned.   But trading for a pitcher who has mightily struggled after breaking his finger is somewhat alarming for a player of Martes interest.  

    I think the article and fantsy video does a good job at the pros and cons for each side because let’s face it, there are some major risks here based on that article that I wouldn’t have expected us to take for Marte.



    You’ll see man. By next season, they’re going to eliminate his sinker and or teach him a cutter along with further developing his changeup and get him on track. His sinker and changeup are both pitches that have arm side run, so as long as the hitter can eliminate the curve out of his hand, they can pretty much keep their hands inside the ball and guess right for the most part.

    Plus the A’s mismanaged him terribly. They rushed him and then threw him back and forth between the bullpen and rotation. Those who have played know that 90% of the game is played between the ears and that kind of shit fucks with your head.

    This is really informative. The fantasy video is worth listening.  

    With that information, Im a bit surprised we would take any risks for a player like Marte.  I understand the risk and reward with controlling benefits but in this stage of the game, I thought a bat (CF or C) would be the complete focus for Marte.  

    Not trying to be negative, but it’s seems like a risky play intself without addressing the need directly for Marte.  

    Isnt everyone tired of players who are still unproven?


    What team is going to give up a GOOD controllable center fielder for a good center fielder that will be gone in two months? So trading Marte for a Center Fielder was never an option. if anything, what they asked for is just proof that the  offensive pieces they are looking to acquire will come at the expense of pitching (hence why they needed Luzardo)
