  1. ESPN describes the excitement level for each team heading into Spring Training on a scale of 0 to 5... The Red Sox excitement level? 5. The Orioles? 0. The Marlins? Negative 1 million. We couldn't be a zero? Even a negative one if they realllly think it's appropriate to take a cheap shot? So negative 1 million? Anyone really think we should be less excited than Orioles fans? How is that NOT biased reporting? http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25952980/one-thing-watch-spring-training-all-30-teams
  2. @hovertical @DTrain @pollythewog @SixYearItch I apologize... I'm cluttering up so many threads pointing out how everyone thinks we suck when they're actually all right. It's true we have sucked for over 15 years now and we will continue to suck until we somehow get the last winning out of a World Series again. There is no middle ground other than that. The team will never take positive steps forward until they've actually got their hands on that next World Series trophy. There is no reason to show pride in the team I've followed closely for 26 years. My bad.
  3. You shouldn't be excited man. There is nothing to hope for. Negative 1 million.
  4. It bugs you that I make these threads/posts doesn't it?
  5. This is what I disagree with the most out of everything you said because this new ownership has done A LOT to differentiate themselves from the past ownerships over the last year. Saying the Marlins currently deserve all of this stupid biased "journalism" is like saying you deserve eggs thrown at your house daily because the previous owners of the same house were all horrible. Please let me know if you disagree with the previous sentence.
  6. It's a conversation starter. Though I'd love to know how the Orioles lose 115 games and have a more exciting season thatn us coming up.

    Unveiling of new logos and uniforms

    Like this but with the new logo of course...
  8. We thought that at the beginning but it would be really weird to do that after so long. If Jeter truly believes we have done a great job in rebuilding this organization over the last year then he has to give a lot of credit to Hill so how do you let Hill go this long as just a transitional piece? You actually then run the risk of the next guy undoing everything Hill did right.

    New Forum Setup?

    This right here basically sums it up.

    New Forum Setup?

    The subforums didn't get enough love... people post in the main forum all the time but skip the other topics for weeks at a time. It's understandable because the other topics are not Marlins related but in order to highlight them more we've put all the topics together on one page. We absolutely know it gives an overwhelming first impression but we think it is best for now... Would love some feedback and/or suggestions!

    Future Marlins Offseason speculation thread

    Yea I think Frisaro is wrong on the IFA money. He was also wrong on the sitution with Julian Fernandez' Rule 5 status.

    Team store also had a black cap with the front panel blue, like the classic Blue Jays or Twins style. Interesting idea for a future BP cap, wouldn't like it for regular season though. The store was overload for me on Saturday. I know what I truly want but in the moment I wanted everything... made the smart decision to walk away and purchase things at a later date.

    Frisaro projects 25-man roster

    This annoys me about Fish Stripes... Every time MLB.com posts an article Fish Stripes makes their own article about the same topic basically just reiterating what Frisaro said. And if there's any key points they'll write another article (or two) that just repeats those points. If Frisaro doe an Inbox article, Fish Stripes writes an article for each of his answers. They have such lazy writing. https://www.fishstripes.com/2019/2/11/18219523/2019-mlb-predictions-opening-day-roster-marlins-25-man-starting-lineup

    Chen can still give us some wins. I think he has a pretty good year all things considered. Maybe his "best" year as a Marlin? It's almost like he can't realistically get any worse.

    Frisaro projects 25-man roster

    He says Granderson might be more of a platoon guy so technically he's the backup guy who rotates.

    Future Marlins Offseason speculation thread

    The best deal for Straily is around June or July, in my opinion. And blocking a pitcher doesn't seem so bad in another lost season. It would just be optioning someone down for two or three months.

    Frisaro projects 25-man roster

    He predicted injuries already???

    Future Marlins Offseason speculation thread

    With Straily I think the ideal situation is to wait and hope he has a good first half and then trade him. He probably has some value now but he is the perfect candidate to have a good few months to fool someone into acquiring him and then we get something before he regresses in the second half.

    Sam Miller ESPN Article

    That's fair, I've also heard many people who say MLB Pipeline is the one that shouldn't be followed so, again, this thing can be subjective in several ways.

    In general all of these lists are pretty fluid so it's very tricky to say anything about them depending how you word it. Of the players who were acquired for Stanton Yelich and Ozuna the Marlins do not have any of them on the Top 100 lists today... FACT. But... When the Marlins traded Stanton Yelich and Ozuna they did acquire several prospects who were on the Top 100 lists at the time... FACT. Both statements are accurate, the narrative changes which statement someone choose to use.

    Sam Miller ESPN Article

    You wrote this whole post and then admitted that it's just from memory when I said in my post that I actually did a search and found the Fangraphs Top 100 from Feb 2018.

    New Billy The Marlin

    A teaser. Haven't seen the face but he doesn't look much different shape wise except for the addition of shoes. The new color is great, looks pretty teal in this clip.

    Chen Straily Urena are locks barring injury, everyone else competes for the last two spots. Chen doesn't take someone's spot, he already has his own spot.
