    FanFest - Feb 9

    I'm sorry but I was at the FanFest in 2012 and it was way more packed than that. You could barely move around.

    Future Marlins Offseason speculation thread

    I think they said that O'Brien/Walker are going to platoon at 1st

    Future Marlins Offseason speculation thread

    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).

    Realmuto traded to Phillies

    I really think that dumping guys last offseason for peanuts has given the Marlins no real bargaining power when shopping Realmuto this offseason. It certainly feels that way, since they keep asking for a ton for him (as they should), and have had no takers.

    Marlins Park Renovation Updates

    Are you new to being a fan of this team? This ownership has made it pretty clear they are not interested in fielding a competitive product. Almost every position on the team needs help and it certainly appears like they are going to try and throw all of the younger unproven, and unready guys into the fire way too soon rather than pay MLB level salaries.

    Realmuto traded to Phillies

    Cole and Verlander are FA's after this year. Going to be hard to keep both after 2019.

    2018-2019 Off-Season Thread

    I feel like this thread doesn't even need to exist, since I have not heard a single rumor of the Marlins being involved in anything beyond shopping Realmuto.

    Marlins Park Renovation Updates

    I don't understand why they are bothering with a SRO section in a stadium they can never fill. At least when I did it in 2002 at PacBell for the Giants, it was because everything else was sold out.

    2018-2019 Off-Season Thread

    I don't think they're going to sign one. At least, I would be surprised. I have not seen a single rumor linking the Marlins to any FAs, and the offseason is almost 2 months old.

    The team is not as irrelevant today

    While I'm glad they are spending money on international signings (something we never did under Loria), I would like to see them actually add to the MLB level this offseason but it sounds like that is not happening. There are so many glaring holes that need to be filled but I have very low expectations.

    2018-2019 Off-Season Thread

    From the articles about the offseason it sure sounds like they are going to do what they did last offseason, which is probably deal some guys and not add any MLB FAs. So I hope you guys enjoy another excruciatingly bad team in 2019. I still don't understand why they didn't trade Dietrich for something in July.

    Is the 2018 team worse than the 1998 team?

    At least in 1998 some of those 1997 WS stars like Sheffield were still on the team for a bit, even if it wasn't for long. This team has nobody interesting outside of JT Realmuto, who will be gone soon
  13. That Yelich trade is looking worse every day Plus his contract is a steal for a few more years too

    25th Anniversary Weekend is finally here...

    Except Jeter didn't listen to people and just added to the mess by pissing off fans even more with the way they blew up the team. On top of that he was pretty oblivious to the fan backlash (or just ignored it). I'm not sure who in their ownership group thought they would accomplish anything by nuking the roster 2 months after buying the team. It signaled to the remaining fans here that we were going back to the Loria days of blowing up a team when it got too expensive. This was the largest roster rebuild this team has had since arguably 1998, because at least when they did it in 2005/2006 a lot of the players were able to immediately contribute. Whereas so far, nobody we acquired in the various offseason trades has shown much of anything. Brinson in particular has been having a historically awful season at the plate, and he was one of the better talents acquired.

    Should the Miami Marlins consider a Tim Tebow Trade?

    This can't be a serious question. He's awful.
