    The day I have to learn what an xwoba is will be the day I quit watching baseball. Lol. I'm with you. That can't really be a stat.

    Elieser Hernandez

    I agree. They usually have a least one plus tool and that's why teams take a flier on them. I don't see one plus pitch with Hernandez. At least Graves throws 95 MPH. Hernandez tops out at 92. I know we have nothing to lose but we could at least give another young guy an opportunity.

    Marlins Trade News / Rumors

    I see that there were a few teams that weren't able to reach agreement with their 1st round or supplemental picks. Props to this FO for getting their signings done quickly. I'm not entirely thrilled with their IFA signings thus far as they seem to be going for quantity over quality. However, there is still plenty of time so I will reserve judgement until there's more of a clear picture of what they are going to do. #FuckJeterAnyway

    I disagree with that. If this FO and staff are good at developing players, then why wouldn't they be able to develop Conley and others? It's never too late as evidenced by Hand and Miller. So, I would rather hang onto them and try to develop them properly than give them away for fringe prospects. We either trade them for something of value or keep them. Nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    Sorry @Entendu but I'm with @DTrain. I don't remember anyone saying that. Please show us where that was said. Other than @taiwanmarlin of course.

    I don't think anyone called Straily a building block for the future. His appeal has always been that he still has plenty of club control left for a quality back end starter. Those aren't building blocks. Those are trade chips.

    Would you rather have a season like the Mets are having?

    That's a good point but he very well might have with Prado's injury. Plus trading Dee Gordon could have moved Prado to 2nd and opened up 3rd base for Anderson. There were no guarantees to be sure but as I've all along, I hate tanking and I always want to compete and put the best team on the field that I can.

    Would you rather have a season like the Mets are having?

    Nope. I wouldn't. I was totally against the pieces we gave up to the Padres to get Cashner and Rodney. Look at Chris Paddack now. Haven't seen Naylor's numbers lately but he was raking earlier in the season.

    Maybe from Stanton because he had a monster year but I don't think we have seen the best of Ozuna yet. Nor Yelich for that matter.

    That's where we disagree. You can't just assume that the team was going to stay a .500 team. I was hoping that a new and competent FO could pull of the moves that the old one couldn't. Last years team with Caleb Smith would have been better. J T Realmuto taking it to the level he has this season would have made it better. It's all speculation at this point so it doesn't matter but my point is that they could have improved the team with smaller moves and tried to win instead of tearing the whole thing down.

    Yes, the outfield and J T Realmuto.

    International FA

    That's fine but not a top 50 player. I hope they plan on spending on the top players.

    Would you rather have a season like the Mets are having?

    Yes, but the mistake was trading away our farm system (not that it was great to begin with) out of desperation. When I said minor trades I meant not touching the core, but also not trading the farm system. Like the Dee Gordon trade. Dee wasn't part of the core, and he brought us back some decent prospects and could have been replaced at 2nd base by Deetz. What the other FO did was atrocious. This FO you would expect would be much better. Anyway, I guess we can disagree. I just won't ever accept that you have to tank in order to rebuild.

    I'm not understanding your post. What is that you are saying happened?
