  1. He's been a slow starter in new leagues so far in his career so he's pretty much on track. He'll get acclimated to it eventually. A lot of his offensive issues right now (or at least what i've seen" is him not being aggressive early in the count. he's almost TOO patient and gets himself into pitcher's counts too often.
  2. What I mean is he doesn’t have a FUTURE on this team. I think the fact that he hasn’t come up once and they put JT riddle in center a lot this year proves that. Far too many outfield options. You have Jesus Sanchez, Bleday, monte Harrison, that will be up in the big leagues by 2021 (and if I’m gonna have a 4th outfielder I want someone with some pop off the bench). So yeah bring him up with the expectation to trade him because unless what we have coming up completely tanks, he won’t be anything worth having around especially considering his lack of versatility (versatility being what got Riddle in there over him). An all defense-no offense fourth outfielder can be easily picked up when the time for contention rolls around. Also: I think cooper has earned his spot as that 4th outfielder / back up corner infielder so again, I just don’t see where he belongs.
  3. At this point I think they should bring him up and give him an opportunity to have a decent stretch so they can trade him somewhere, cause I don’t see him getting a chance anywhere here honestly.
  4. I almost made one but I wasn't sure of the site's stand on religious jokes lol
  5. I don’t feel like Bleday will be up at any point next year. They’ll wait to delay his clock till 2021 which is when they’ll begin to go all in due to the expected TV revenue (pretty sure that wolverine report confirms that) And I agree with others in that Pablo will be in the rotation over Sandy. All that said still very excited for the next few seasons!
  6. lmao you wouldn't catch me dead with that, but Juice did a great job.
  7. No for sure he’s a second baseman, I just think maybe they’re bluffing to make it look like they’re not desperate to trade Castro. Either way for sure Castro gets moved and for sure it’s to make room for Diaz lol
  8. Holy crap, that is freaking laughable.
  9. Haven't the marlins been saying they don't need to trade starlin to bring up Isan since they could put him at 2b/SS/3b/LF if need be? I'm sure it's a plight to limit any perceived desperation to trade Castro but maybe that's why he didn't mention it.
  10. This guys name is too close to Lewis (Brinson) so he’s a bust
  11. man Idk why I thought he was 32 when he was here. Ok forget the bour reference, I stand by what i said lol
  12. I don't know man, I think that he will get better and peak around his 31-32 years old seasons (like Justin Bour) assuming he remains healthy. I definitely think he's capable of being a starter on a playoff version of the marlins. Even if his average regresses to around .270-.280 (which it probably will) I still envision him being a productive hitter with a consistently high slugging %. The team should eventually be fine offensively, specially if we you're getting the production we're hoping to receive from Isan Diaz and Monte Harrison. If they need an upgrade anywhere I think it's shortstop (assuming, they keep Banderson at 3rd)
  13. Right now the important part is developing the starting pitching and the hitters. I think they’re purposely managing the bullpen to lose. That way we keep the talent up and doing well, but get the added benefit of having Conley and Chen blow games late and keep us drafting in the top 5....I mean I’m half joking but there can’t be any other reasons those two morons are still in the big leagues.
  14. Yeah, I'm optimistic lol...No but in all seriousness it was almost 15K and that game was awesome. The crowd kept the wave going for like 5 revolutions which i havent seen in yearsl ol
  15. I was there and the atmosphere felt a little bit better, can’t lie. Though A LOT of those people were Phillies fans lol...going again tonight, hopefully we have our best Saturday attendance!
  16. Without a doubt, not just the marlins, but any sports team is going to benefit from the adrenaline rush that comes with hearing 30K+ completely invested in what you are doing. All I need is 2-3 people to watch me playing ping pong and say "wow, he's pretty good" and I'm going full Forest Gump mode. I think it's akin to a band booking a gig and seeing 5 people in the crowd...You get that "what's the point" feeling. Unfortunately, the team needs to win before people come, but it's an uphill battle without fans in seats to not only provide the resources required to field a competitive team, but also to bring out the best in the players. I bought a 20 game package and am going twice this weekend even though yes, I'm usually completely depressed by the 5th inning when we're inevitably down 5-1 but I know that my support and attendance is required....these are trying times in the marlin kingdom I tell you lol
  17. I have to admit at the time i was a little confused as to why he was the odd man out, but it's turned out to be a great decision!
  18. He doesn’t need at bats, he needs an overhaul of that long ass swing that gets exploited day in and day out. He can’t hit inside pitches without opening up too early which makes him susceptible to the outside break ball. It’s the exact same trouble Cameron Maybin had when he got here (and pretty much his whole career)
  19. I have to agree, I've always been the kind of guy that stays the full 9 innings, but I've left every single game early that I've been to the past two seasons. Complete Drag.
  20. That’s great to hear, thanks for the updates man!
  21. Yeah it definitely could’ve been worse, but still.
  22. Holy crap.... https://sports.yahoo.com/boston-red-sox-david-ortiz-shot-dominican-republic-hospitalized-020705191.html
