  1. We would be getting fleeced there. Bart isn't looking like he's going to be super special yet, and you're talking about trading a controlled, effective SP. Considering the injury issues some guys like Edward Cabrera and now Sixto have been dealing with, I would think the Marlins would be extremely reluctant to trade any of their younger guys right now. I don't really have an issue trading guys like Aguilar, Cooper, etc. who are not going to be long-term solutions and could potentially provide a return now. Obviously this team is not going anywhere yet. I do think they need to prioritize younger hitters if they start to trade some of these veterans, as the farm is kind of low on hitters, and the top hitting prospects in the farm aren't really wowing anyone yet this year.
  2. This team needs bats badly and replacing coaches isn't going to fix that. A lot of the guys they have been running out there the last 2-3 seasons have just not performed.
  3. This team really needed to add another bat and they only picked up Adam Duvall which isn't going to cut it
  4. I mean the baseball rumor mill has been pretty quiet overall. I think part of the reason is that it's unclear when the season is going to start. I don't believe ST will start on time. If the Marlins are serious about bullpen help, Brad Hand is probably the best cost-effective option out there.
  5. I'm extremely confused as to how they ended up with a collectible like that
  6. Villar/Aguilar is a great no risk, high reward group of moves
  7. They should absolutely snatch up Villar. I have no idea what the Orioles are doing waiving a 4 WAR guy when their offense is already abysmal. But Angelos is notoriously cheap.
  8. Sorry, but we can't sign Castellanos because he would block Noted Prospect Lewis Brinson from hitting .180 again
  9. I just found out today that Kolek had ANOTHER surgery two weeks ago and may miss another season. God that pick was such a disaster.
  10. I'm just not convinced that this front office knows what they are doing on player development. A lot of the guys that they targeted to trade for are floundering and just not looking like good pieces. I agree that it's going to take awhile to rebuild this team, but this franchise has been suffering for so long that it needs to happen faster than with a team like the Astros. They at least had winning teams throughout the 90s and into the 2000s before they had to blow it up and start from scratch.
  11. I'm really not sure how you justify firing a hitting coach with an offense that is this historically bad. It's not like the team expected to be competitive. It would be different if our record was like this and we still had Stanton/Yelich/Ozuna/Realmuto/Gordon.
  12. Yelich turned into a legit star as soon as he left here which figures. Meanwhile Lewis Brinson still gets ABs because we have no one else
  13. I'm sorry but I was at the FanFest in 2012 and it was way more packed than that. You could barely move around.
  14. I think they said that O'Brien/Walker are going to platoon at 1st
  15. Camp starts on Monday, I'm not sure why people think they are going to suddenly add players now. I was surprised at the Granderson deal but that was a minor league deal with an invite to ST so they don't have to pay him unless he makes the team (which seems pretty likely since I think the FO has said that the only guarantee is that Lewis Brinson will be a starter).
