    Greg Cote challenges Jeter to spend on Realmuto and Machado

    It's almost a perfect example of something Loria would try and is thus a great test for Jeter. I think I'd feel more comfortable going forward if I hear that Jeter wants no part of Machado because of the timing of his free agency.

    Decisions decisions... gotta decide if I cut Tazawa from my Franchise in The Show 18.

    Greg Cote challenges Jeter to spend on Realmuto and Machado

    That's what I mean. You have to be a true baseball fan to recognize Machado. He's not recognizable to the city of Miami even though he's from Miami. He doesn't transcend the sport even in his home town. Which is why I don't think signing him would seriously increase attendance. People won't go to Marlins Park "just" because a Miami born player signs here. With that said, could his Miami ties be an asset to this team one day in a perfect world? Yes but it would take him signing here, staying successful, and leading this team to championships. If that happened yes the city would embrace him and put him on a pedestal but signing him ain't doing it alone.

    And then when I post about situations like this and complain about how the media is spreading lies and false information I get asked why I'm "triggered" and why this stuff "bothers me" and why I'm kissing Jeter's ass or whatever. The media is clearly 100% wrong here but apparently it's ok to keep letting them lie about something I actually am knowledgeable about and care about. Within a reasonable confine of those who would care, I won't shut up about it. With that said this stuff always makes me wonder how often the media is lying about things that I am not knowledgeable about and I just hear it and think it's true. It's probably so often it's not even funny.

    Greg Cote challenges Jeter to spend on Realmuto and Machado

    But would enough people think like you? Would attendance significantly increase with a Machado signing or would it, like always, be the same garbage where fans only turn out once we're truly in contention late into the season? Because I hate to beat the same dead horse but fans didn't show up with their supposed favorite homegrown Marlin star Stanton chasing 61 home runs so why would they show up if "some Orioles player who is from Miami" just signed here? Also Machado, as good as he is, isn't a recognizable face of the game. I feel like we can ask everyone in Miami "who is Manny Machado" and they'll have no clue outside of serious baseball fans. Just being from Miami doesn't automatically make him a superstar in Miami.

    Could be because he wears clown makeup and seems to live in the sewer. Can't question people like that.

    There's an ongoing litigation so I can't say too much at this point.

    Machado won't take a discount to play here not with the money he can earn elsewhere and with the state of this team. Nor should he. It's not like his hometown team is selling out and is one player away from a championship team. And I wouldn't worry about Realmuto not smiling. He's never been a smiling all the time player regardless, that's just him. With that said I've seen him look happy several times this season. I mean it's not like he's moping around all grumpy either. Sorry if I abused anyone with this post.

    14 inning scoreless streak for Marlins pitchers since Tazawa last pitched. The little things.

    Isn't this also old? @SonOfJack so you're saying this happened long ago but he has since gotten it back? Geez if so then yes this is garbage and means nothing.
  15. http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/greg-cote/article211413379.html Greg Cote wants Jeter to extend Realmuto and make a run at Manny Machado in free agency as a way to prove to Miami that he is committed to winning. While I get the general idea he's proposing, I see a few things that can be argued... -Cote says that teams MUST spend in free agency to win... that's a tricky one because spending for the sake of spending is a recipe for disaster and is part of why we're in the mess we're in in 2018. -He says that Loria never spent enough to field competitive teams... I disagree and think Loria actually spent too much the problem was he didn't spend wisely. -He assumes Realmuto wants to stay. While that hasn't been proven one way or the other Cote needs to remember it takes two parties to agree to an extension. Let's not forget both Jose Fernandez and Marcell Ozuna turned down extension offers in the past. -He makes it seem like Jeter has no other options to win over the city and fanbase... nope. -He thinks Miami is perfect for Machado and while it is perfect in a vacuum... is this really the right time for Miami to suddenly spike payroll and throw big money at one guy? Machado isn't old but he will likely be closer to 30 when the Marlins compete again IF that. This might be another situation where we'd be wasting money on a guy who's only going to decline when we need him to be best.
