  1. if we try to leave, expect to see this guy in the outfield: ,
  2. nolasco's ridiculous K:BB ratio gets my vote
  3. Those aren't superficial reasons, they are very real reasons. Hermida is only 24 and has WAY more upside than Willingham, who not only has a bad back, but is in the bottom half of production for all LFers. Hermida does have better trade value, but that's because he's more valuable. Hammer is very replacable. that is a subjective argument in favor of hermida. but, what has he actually done to make you think he'll be anything greater than (hopefully) an average right fielder? he hasn't shown anything to suggest he's going to be anywhere near the kind of impact player some people for some rea
  4. that response was uber cute... but, it didn't address my question. Cuz, in the post I mentioned those reasons are superficial to me because when you get down to who will be the more productive player on a team that has willingham and hermida, i think it will always be willingham.... making those superficial reasons appealing to another team, meaning hermida most likely would have a greater trade value than willy... but do not make him as good a player as willingham will be in 09. I just don't think hermida is a lock in 09 is all.... and yea, i know it's easier to play left at DS.
  5. question: why is it that it's so obvious were keeping hermida over willingham in 09? it can't be that he's better defensively - Willingham 22 assists and 11 errors, Hermida 11 assists and 22 errors. it can't be cuz he's better offensively - career line avg's Hermida 1238 ABs 344/440/267, Willingham 1347 ABs 362/470/267 reasons i can think of why hermida is the "obvious" keeper: younger (by 5 yrs), more potential, and he's less of an injury risk (although it has been Willingham getting 500+ ABs the past two seasons... however it looks like Hermida will crack the 500 AB mark this season) I
  6. yep, Cody is a guy i would like to keep, mainly because we are a HORRIBLE defensive team and he has been one of the few bright spots there. Hermida needs to actually show me he can do something ALL season not just the 2nd half. If he can't get rid of him after the 09 season. Uggz will be gone soon, he will be asking for a lot, and management has groomed Couglen, he is ready, Jacobs is replaceable also, Gaby Sanchez is close to ready, but until then we can move Cantu to first and see what McPhearson can do. Coughlan has twice as many errors as Uggla so far this season, and you think he's ready

  8. as much as i keep hearing on these threads about how uggla sucks i refuse to believe he's a bad player. somethings bothering him whether it be ASG, overworked/tired, or changed mentality at the plate. this is not the same uggla us marlins fans are used to seeing! He doesn't suck. He just came back to Earth. It is called a "slump". "Slump?" He passed that long ago. He's hitting .193 with a .649 .OPS in the 2nd half. He has sucked for 2 months now. .190/.292/.381 in July .200/.325/.300 in August A 2 month "slump?" huh? Keep trying. You'll come out of a "theory" and just reco

  10. i wish we'd stop entertaining the idea of gonzo playing everyday at an outfield spot.... though his bat may be slightly better than hermida's right now... his defense is amazingly horrifying and aggravating to watch. at least for me.
  11. Gaby Sanchez received best defensive first baseman Gaby just became my favorite... I really don't see why he won't be our first baseman in '09.
  12. Hermida this year, Coghlan in 2009. Is'nt Coghlan more of a power hitter? Right now he only has 7 in AA through 112 games, but his obp would warrant the 2 spot. If uggla can finish the season off with a BA higher than what it is now, I'd still prefer him over Coghlan at 2nd.
  13. put me in the camp that thinks Fredi has taken out his starters early TWO nights in a row. When you're starting pitcher is ROLLING through a lineup, you kinda gotta give that pitch count thing the boot until he starts to struggle. It's not as if it would be much of a strain on soft-tossing Olsen, who has pitched 30 games the last three seasons to have a 130 pitch outing (ricky nolasco-esque). Also, if you were skeptical about him facing Holliday and Atkins.... he already had twice in the game and handled them. Also, isn't gonzo a bad pinch hitter? i'm in a rush so i can't look up the stats.

  15. Ken Rosenthal picked us to win the east on the FSN baseball report FWIW
  16. McPherson's injury-marred ML stats: G --- AB R- H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO AVG OBP SLG 117 360 50 89 19 2 -18 -- 45 - 5 - 3 -- 23 121 .247 .294 .461 Please stop thinking he'll be 10x better than Jake offensively OR defensively... he's a 28 yr old (considering many on this board think Uggla is old and peaking at 28), DL-prone, K machine (note the god-awful BB/K ratio that is still present in his PCL #'s), who will bring nothing to the table that this team actually needs right now - i.e. defense, or patience at the plate. So I say again, please stop drooling ove

  18. It might worth noting that Coghlan is an awfully raw 2nd baseman with 17 errors, three times as many as Dan, and projects to almost 30 over an average MLB season. And he's no Robert Andino whose high error count in AAA was because he refused to accept that there were any limits on his range and went far afield to make any play he could regardless of how it affected his stats. So if people think Dan is a mediocre 2nd baseman be warned, the kid is much worse. And then there's Coghlan's hollow bat, which depending on what MLE you use projects out to a .250-ish hitter with no power and no prod
  19. The reason I'm saying Jake would be doing the same thing as McPherson is because: McPherson, at the Major League level, posted sub 300 OBP's in the 3 yrs he played there.... warranting a "career" OBP (294) .23 points LOWER than Jacobs' career OBP (317). So, you can say you think McPherson has managed to turn it around, in an extremely hitters biased league, and that is fine. But, their stats say otherwise. To bring it all around, if Jake has a better OBP facing major league pitching than Dallas Mac... you could assume he'd be putting up similar, or better OBP #'s than Mac in the PCL,
  20. Mcpherson is doing exactly what jacobs would do in AAA.... fact is, mcpherson wouldn't make our team any better if he got called up. he'd k a lot more than he is currently doing against AAA pitching and he'd be a defensive liability. don't we have enough of that already? in an effort to actually help our team defensively, as we have plenty of firepower throughout the lineup already... I'd try starting amezaga at 3rd and cantu at first for a few games.... but, since i know we need that big bat in the lineup (im talking about jacobs) we will continue running his sub 300 OBP and bad defense out t
  21. Anibal's final line from tonight: 4.1 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 3 K gracias
  22. I came to the forums anticipating another thread about how bad this team was, and I lol'd when I saw the title of the newest topic: 2009 Florida Marlins. Thanks for the laugh
  23. how about this as a rule of thumb: every time a reliever walks the first guy he faces, mark wiley comes out with a paddle, and gives him 10 spanks with it out on the mound... negative reinforcement, classical conditioning... i swear if it can work with dogs, it can work with middle relievers.
  24. mike rabelo went 2-5 with a hr.... HA.... HA...... HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  25. Hoover is horrible at framing pitches - it seemed like we got 0 borderline calls tonight. He's also not good at blocking them either. Gregg.... has just lost his Closer's role IMO. And Pinto should not be our F-ing setup guy anymore.... his walks are not a new problem, he's always walked a lot of people. The last thing we need is our second highest ranked, in the bullpen hierarchy: 1. closer 2. 8th inning setup guy, to be a walk machine. Please do something Marlins FO.
