  1. >>Sellers? Yeah,well....just ridding of AJ is a monumental "sell". Releasing an $8 million dollar pitcher is a major sell-type move...even though we have to eat his salary>> I was referring to Leiter here of course. If we lose AJ, that's a major sell.If we release Leiter, that's a major sell. We might lose 4 or 5 players by the time August begins or we may not. I am not Beinfest or Mr.Loria. I know one thing. Loria is VERY angry right now...you can see it on his face when the camera gets a shot of him and he will make sure something is done..that much we can bank on.
  2. Anyone remember Chuck Knoblauch of the NY Yankees teams of the mid to late 90's? Remember when he hit a consistent .300 in several years with the Twins and then came over to the Yankees and hit around .260- .270? Well, being a Yankee fan originally since 1975 (and still am..but I am a bigger Marlins fan..had no problem rooting for the Marlins in the 2003 WS!), but I paid alot of attention to Knoblauch's swing in those years and it didn't even resemble the same swing he had when he was with the twins. Chuck did nothing but pop the ball up consistently or he would pull lazy choppers down to 2nd base - all the freakin' time. Eerily enough - now JP has been doing the same thing this season. Where is that great instinct to take a pitch and drive it the other way?or slap it the other way?Or chop it the other way? Or bunt it the other way? Everything is pull pull pull or if it does go the other way..it's a pop up or a lazy fly ball. Now, I never did find out why the Yankees hitting coach didn't do a better job of correcting Chuck's mechanics in his swing - because it was so obvious that no one paid attention to it....or maybe Knoblauch was being shown or taught how to adjust but he just wasn't listening???!?? What I wonder about JP is this? What is Bill Robinson doing to help JP? Maybe nothing. Maybe he takes assumes since JP is such a good hitter that he will eventually straighten himself out? What worries me is that I can see how awfully bad JP's swing mechanics are off and it's seems to me that someone would of corrected it by now? I have had always supported Bill Robinson amidst all the negative comments by fans and critics but now I am starting to jump on the bandwagon.If JP continues to make such odd UN-JP like swings - I am going to start suspecting something weird is going on. It almost looks ridiculous. The only other time I felt this frustrated at a very good hitter was CHUCK KNOBLAUCH and HE never did get himself right. Oh, and throwing the ball past the 1st baseman from 15 feet away almost every other time sealed it for me. JP hasn't reached the bottom of that barrel yet. 820825[/snapback] Folks today accused me of lending nothing to this forum.That I have no knowledge or creedence to lend to this forum.Do a search of Whoshaq and you'll find that I have more knowledge of MLB than probably 95% of the members on this board.I will challenge anyone to my knowledge of the game. I gaurantee that most of this post went over all of your heads.
  3. Mike Lowell thing you can't really blame them...I don't think anyone saw this coming.>> No? He went the entire second half in a massive slump? You tell me no one worried a little bit about it carrying over into this season? I did. Al Leiter...while 8 million was excessive and he had started to show signs of what he has been doing in recent years there still was no indication that he would be THIS bad. I worried about bis age factor.It was a known fact that he had lost 6-8 mph off his fastball.But as far as just how bad he's been....I never saw this coming.I just thought $8 mil was alot for this guy.We couldn't of done better? Lee for Choi...move had to be made. It sucks looking back on it, but at the time Lee was unaffordable Well, we kept the core of our players ..and that was what we all were hoping for this time around.Choi fooled us though.He started off amazingly hot and then just totally went cold. Not resigning Pudge...I'm still on the side that this was a good move. I sure wouldn't want to be paying that man 10 million dollars two years from now. It had to be done.Otherwise we wouldn't of been able to afford Delgado and to keep the core of the rest of the team.We ended up with a 3 time allstar in LoDuca.We've done well to fill the void.[/font] Trade last year...probably their worst move, but would this team be any better if Penny and Choi were still around? I doubt it. 849862[/snapback] Their worst move? I guess the F/O never dreamed Mota would be this horrible. LoDuca is a positive.Penny is overrated and Choi is a lifetime .230 hitter who looks as though he'll never be a starter anywhere.At least that's the way it appears.It was not the worst trade ever,IMO.
  4. There are no such things as cancerous players, only players that can not fit into a specific clubhouse. Ex. Pudge, Pierzynski and Guillen P.S. And based on your cherrypicking of players, I think you might have an agenda. 849872[/snapback] Enc's a cancerous player.His laziness rubs off on the other guys.
  5. this team hasnt shown fire for more than 2 games in a row all year atleast 1 major change really needs to be made 849800[/snapback] Maverick,my Sellers topic was locked by the moderator. You told me to GO AWAY. How can you be ignorant toward me? You asked the question in this thread here and I just gave my opinion via my own thread ...as I did not see yours.I just got home and posted without reading yours.So why shoot me down? In other words, how was what I posted any different than what you or anyone else posted here or in the DISGUSTING thread? Ok, get mad if I started yet another similar topic but people get mad at me for being opinionated? Why? Everyone else expresses the same thoughts and all of sudden there are 100 replies in agreement.But when I post something similar, everyone tells me to GO AWAY.\ I might as well shoot myself 849839[/snapback] It's a freaking forum. People just get mad when you jam down their throats that their team sucks AFTER EVERY LOSS. It gets old. 849847[/snapback] How am I the only one that jams these opinions down people's throats? (as you so eloquently put it) Do you monitor your own forum? The other day I counted ummm, countless similar topics...and many by the same person. Ignorant..and a definite vendetta against me for no reason..mr.Moderator. Sad to see
  6. Look, this team needs to remove the "cancerous" players that are nothing but whiners and complainers and have to absolutely move. The following player, in my estimation have to move becuase they are doing us more harm than good and contribute to a negative clubhouse environment: 1. A.J. Burnett (P) 2. Josh Beckett (P) 3. Guillermo Mota (P) 4. Tim Spooneybarger (P) Even though he has not pitched, he was not well liked in Atlanta becuase of his attitude. These players are not necessarrily bad players, but they are more worried about their paycheck than what the team needs to win. I don't think that this year we have what it take. I think that we should start to focus on what we need and retool for next year. I am not going to put up any mock trades, but it is apparent that some of these guys have to get out of here. 849826[/snapback] How come this person is not told to GO AWAY?????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  8. Red Sox get: AJ Burnett(RHP) Orlando Palmero(OF) Astros get: Jason Stokes(1B) Jay Payton(OF) Yorman Bazardo(RHP) Jon Papelbon(RHP) Marlins get: Bronson Arroyo(RHP) Brad Lidge(RHP) With this, the Astros get a solution at 1B in the long run and 2 good young pitching prospects to take the place of Lidge, plus Payton, who will like being in a position to start. The Red Sox get a replacement outfielder that can play all 3 positions and wont complain about playing time and a frontline starter in case Schilling cant return to form. The Marlins get a dependable starter(who I have wanted to trade for forever, before this season and would set up our rotation like this: Willis, Beckett, Arroyo, Olsen, Moehler), whos presense wont require Leiter or Valdez to be re-inserted into the rotation, and a closer that coupled with Mota could turn into what the Dodgers had with Mota/Gagne(you know, if you had the lead after the 7th you pretty much won). It works out for all 3 teams, I would think so anyway...and you know if I am proposing a trade of Burnett(my all time favorite Marlin, just ahead of Lowell and Gonzo), I am serious I think it would work. 849274[/snapback] Right now it seems offense is the problem that needs to be addressed.Use Burnett and Enc to get one of these guys - Dunn,Pena,Griffey,Shawn Green,Vernon Wells or whomever..I don't know what else might be available. We can go with Willis, Beckett,Olsen, Moehler, & Valdez.
  9. >And what happens if we come out of the gates after the ASB, and rattle off 6 wins in a row? What then?>> 6 in a row out the gate? On the road? :headscratch If they pull off that miracle I'll buy you a beer :cheers
  10. Lets see, we lost the first 2 games of the series, inconsisent offense in this series which means the score for the final game will probably be... 23-2. 848935[/snapback] Difference here is Leiter didn't pitch any of the winning side of the games in Wrigley.So, it may be 23-14 Marlins. A sweep seems imminent based on the pitching match up today , but I will remain positive for a miracle! :lol
  11. Yes, amazingly so. Depressed and angry and it's only a baseball team.What TF is wrong with me? :confused
  12. I love this board 848839[/snapback] There another one of those infamous comments from Maverick that doesn't give any explanation........... 848845[/snapback] it shouldnt need one... but you're semi new so here it is when we win, life is good, everyone is a future HOFer, and we have the title in our grasp when we lose, all hell breaks loose, everyone is a AAAA player, and we are staring worst team of all time in the face 848846[/snapback] And again.No one says anything in reference to the ferocious negative remarks until I post, then Maverick comes in and posts in reply to my post.I fully know what he means. Eff this board is right.I am f*cking tired of being targeted on here for no reason :mad 848858[/snapback] Usually your the king of negativity.....Ramp's right...you people all act like your 12 years old.....the season isn't over.....there's 162 games in a season...I'd love to hear u guys during football season....then you slightly have more of a case of being so radical after one game. 848866[/snapback] And you're the king of "I know it all".You snub your nose at people like me who are just being honest with their emotions.The reason you've seen negative posts from me is because the Marlins have given me reasons to post what I've posted. And again,I have NOT been the only nor am I the KING of such posts as you so snobberishly have appointed me such a title ..so why don't you crawl back into your home :toilet
  13.

  14. I have a feeling that if they don't come off strong in the first 15 or so games after the break, they will just let the season slip away and we will finish well under .500. 848822[/snapback] Thanks again for your support of me in the Dontrelle thread! But...the Fish start off on a long road trip after the break.Not a good way to get it going unfortunately I Can't think of anything positive to say (as usual) :confused
  15. Disgusting. Thats how the Marlins have been playing. Awful. I can't believe we have such a great team and blow leads and get horrible offense. I can't even watch the Marlins games anymore. If we didn't have Cabrera, Delgado, and Castillo, LoDuca, etc...... and weren't considered a good team, I wouldn't mind watching this team. There is such a huge difference between watching a bad team playing bad, and a great team playing bad. Even the '01 team was a much more fun team to watch than this. Its gets even more harder when your watching your team play at home and the other team has more fans. Im a very positive guy and have always been optimistic when I look at things. I hate to say it though, but unless we get a MIRACLE, this team won't be going anywhere in October except home. Trading AJ seems to make more and more sense each day. Im sure people will say, "O well were only half way through the season", or "We still can win the wildcard" Guess what. The writings on the wall and it isn't saying we have a bright future. Delgado is a great addition, yes, but this team has had a lack of offense for 247 games now. (Last season and this season) Blame it on Robinson, lack of power, Lowell, Jp, whatever. The fact is this team can't play offense. The Nats have this never die attitude when they play that reminds me so much of the Marlins. Meanwhile the Braves, injury infested and all, are on there way to just being 1.5 games back of the Nationals. Somewhere between the end of 2003 and mid-2004, this team stopped that attitude of expecting to win when they came to the park. Why all the negativity??? I just watched the Marlins fall to a team that had lost 8 in a row and without their most important bat last night, and tonight lose by SIX to the CHICAGO CUBS to yet again drop/tie a series. Sure a series should not define a season, but as I said before, this team struggled last year and look like the same team this year I now have two choices. Start watching more Nationals games since I love to watch a team of nobodys play like champs, or go to Marlins games, but expect to loose. This team should now be sellers. AJ and Josh have been dissapointments IMO. THese guys have played GOOD for most of their career and I thought both would be GREAT. Bring in some prospects, and lets change the look of this team. It hasn't been working now for 1 and a half seasons. What the F*CK happend??! :confused 848772[/snapback] I agree..it is sickening.Also, too bad I get personally attacked by Admin the moderator and others on here when I speak my mind. But I see you and others posting what I did yesterday and now I don't see anyone attacking you. Someone told me in another post to let it slide off my back...but it's hard to do when I get slagged badly for posting stuff like this (which ,again,I agree with your post)...but no one else does. This happens in my personal life too. I guess I am always one of those type people who always get's singled out for some reason. So,I will let it fly now since I have nothing left to lose..as I've been waiting for this type of post and subsequent thread replies from others. I have spent over $2000 on season tix and I want a effing REFUND man....how's that for jumping off the bandwagon,huh?? :banghead EFF this team. They suck beyond belief. They get paid alot of money to win.They were picked overwhelmingly to win the division by 90% of the media writers,etc. This is totally embarrassing and pathetic....I mean that word is an understatement. This board can kiss my arse! :mad :thumbdown :hat
