  1. It's funny that you mention whining when the movie is about the original trilogy's hero becoming a whiney quitter which is completely uncharacteristic of that character. Between Poe's tantrum and Kylo Ren's destructive tantrum (his second of the trilogy), this movie was all about developing emotionally unstable and insecure characters. It was just bad story telling: Subplots that didn't further the overall plot, instances deus ex machina, poor character development... Not to mention the plot of the movie was about running out of fuel while being pursued through hyperspace as if the original
  2. I'm more than just a little disappointed in how the first few games have gone. I'm just shaking my head.
  3. I'll be home in Michigan, wishing I could afford (or justify buying) a subscription to MLB.tv.
  4. i think I've been here since this was a geocities page and Admin scribbled updates in crayon. I recognize your screen name. In those days, I think some of the regulars were Moneyball and Hollyberry? Do those names sound familiar?
  5. I think the last season I regularly visited these forums was 2005 or 2006? Is there anyone from those days still around? Tough season so far this year.
  6. I've said it before and I'll say it again... Josh Johnson is the next Tim Spooneybarger. He has potential to have a great career but he just can't stay healthy. I still think the organization should let him go eventually. It's not too much to ask for pitchers that can keep themselves from falling apart every other season or so.
  7. I have to admit the Marlins had one of the worst showings on opening day. It worries me. It wasn't worse than the Nats losing 11-1 to the Phillies, or the Cubs losing 16-5 to Atlanta. Yeah, but that is expected from the Nats... expected by me anyway.

  9. i cant believe we are even talking about this. this is insane, if south florida cant support the marlins, NOONE else can... i wanna see one of these other "optional" cities like portland or vegas build them a half a billion dollar ballpark. portland is a cow town with a population less than hialeah and vegas is going bankrupt. I'd say Oklahoma City might be able to. The NBA never saw that as an option and then quickly changed their minds while New Orleans was playing there after Hurricane Katrina and now we have the OK City Thunder. I am surprised that Indianapolis never comes up.
  10. If you were a real Marlins fan, you wouldnt want us to move I don't think the location of the organization should determine how much of a fan I am. I've been a fan since the beginning and I am sure that I can spend the next 70 years of my life getting excited about recycling the team every few years for some young and upcoming stars, but I'd really like to see some team development and a packed stadium when I watch the games online. It just gets sad when the fans get really excited about a player and just as soon as he has proven his worth, he is sent elsewhere because the Marlins can't aff
  11. I found an article that does an accurate comparison between the Marlins organization and the American automobile industry. It sounds odd, but it kind of makes sense. See the link below. Hot Stove Daily: Florida Marlins The Marlins really should move to a location where the general population will support the organization. I used to be strongly opposed to this because I just couldn't stand the thought of my team changing its name, but now I support it because then maybe they can earn enough revenue to keep my favorite players around. The departure of Josh Willingham and Scott Olsen
  12. The sad thing is, I heard about the low attendance while listening to a local radio show in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Florida Marlins fans living in South Florida are a joke all over the country. I think the team should follow the footsteps of the Seattle Supersonics and move to Oklahoma City... that or San Antonio. Heck, they'd get a larger attendance if they just moved up here to Grand Rapids. If they build the new stadium for the team in Florida, they are going to lose so much money. It is just a horrible business move. The team has been around since 1993 and they have won two Wor
