    Marlins officially sign Mesa brothers

    We only signed two of the three? So Marlins! #FuckJeter Lol. Just kidding of course. This is awesome. #StartingToBelieve

    4 coaches including Perry Hill gone

    Hill should have been retained. He's probably the best infield coach in the league. #FuckJeter

    Ryan Lillie traded to Reds for international pool money

    What do you have against Cubans? One is a highly regarded prospect, the other is young but generally well regarded as well and Gaston throws 98 MPH. Not of that gurantees success, but to say all you see are three busts shows a great deal of bias. SMH
  4. It would also improve our farm system tremendously.

    If the Marlins can pull this off and sign all three of the Cuban prospects, I will be forced to stop using my #FuckJeter hashtag. #FuckJeterNoMore ??

    Dump Starting Pitching

    These crazy ideas are what's wrong with baseball. Sports in general needs star power to be successful. If you want people to watch the games in person or on TV, you need to have players they will fall in love with like Jose Fernandez. If players are interchangeable, fans won't have anyone to identify with and won't get behind the team. This is why I have a problem with all of this sabermeterics stuff. Theses aren't math problems, these are baseball games and even though it's about winning, making it about just numbers will kill the game.

    Pablo Lopez

    We also got Nick Niedert, Chris Torres, and Robert Dugger from Seattle for Dee Gordon and Int slot money. If you look at what those three guys are doing in the minors you'll be very happy with the results. We might have really fleeced them twice. We should always trade with the Mariners!

    The Opener

    No I don't. Chen should go to the pen so that Niedert or Gallen etc. should get a look. We aren't going to win anytime soon regardless. Lets just develop some pitching. We might not have an ace but we have plenty of young arms that should give us plenty of depth. Pablo Lopez and Trevor Richards have held their own so far in the show. Alcantara should be joining them for good soon also. Gallen has been unspectacular but very solid in the PCL. Neidert has been very good all season and Dugger has come on strong in the second half after being promoted to AA earlier this year. We still have Guzman, and Cabrera in A ball who both have top of the rotation potential. Trevor Rogers is also developing in low A ball and Jordan Yamamoto was great in A and AA before getting hurt. Also, Braxton Garrett should be ready to go next spring. The point is we have a shit load of young arms to develop and there's no need to use a gimmick like an opener. At least in my opinion. They won't all make it but if half of them pan out, we are in good shape. If we dont have an ACE by the time we are ready then they can sign one.

    Stanton still wants the Marlins to succeed

    I would forgive Jeter. Lol

    The Opener

    Forward thinking. How's this for forward thinking. Develop better players.

    The Opener

    I hate the idea. That's taking away from the game. Pretty soon it's bullpen games every night with each pitcher getting two innings. There aren't going to be an stars to cheer for pretty soon. Just relievers and platoon guys. Boring.
  12. Very good read. Thoughts??? https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2791455-i-find-it-very-difficult-to-watch-why-mlb-greats-think-baseballs-in-trouble?share=twitter

    Brian Anderson compared to other NL rookies

    Anderson is a nice player and will be a solid contributor. I've said it before that he reminds me of Conine. I don't think he'll ever be a superstar and he might be on the fringe of our next core but not a major piece of that core.

    8/15 Marlins @ Braves

    Still don't think he should have been tossed. Especially 20 minutes after the fact. Umps are idiots.

    The Monte Harrison Appreciation Thread

    17 hrs and 24 stolen bases. He also has a .315 OBP despite a .238 BA. The tools are there. Just needs better pitch recognition. Or a wider bat. LOL. He just turned 23. There's still time. On the other hand Scott , Pompey, and Banfield have all been promoted to Greensboro. Might have a good draft class on our hands.
