  1. In Kevin Smith endorsed Jorts and a backwards cap.
  2. There's a great quote by Pat Riley, and it comes to mind in times like this: "[SonOfJack] needs to shut the fuck up" If you think having no fear of losing your starting job and being given the longest leash imaginable for any Major League Player is going to help him develop...then you're as hopeless as Brinson was in April and May. Being in the major leagues requires constant adjustments and studying. Being told daily you're ok, you'll come around like Mattingly and Menechino have said only inspires you to keep trying the same things over and over again to get a different result... aka INSANITY. He's playing pissed, I figured as much when he responded to the instagram campain and brought it up in a interview. He had no other option then to try different shit or be embarrassed nationally. Lebatards jusifibly being ridiculed for this, but it wasn't a personal attack on Brinson. It was an attack on the Marlins for tearign down a roster that had probably one of the best 1-4, maybe 1-5 in the Major Leagues. So before you call someone elses opinion Moronic....just Shut the Fuck Up.
  3. Or More likely he realized he's a major leaguer and started putting in the work needed to not be embarrassed? Some people react differently under pressure. It seems like he thrives in it, which is great. All year he's been able to relax and learn because their committed to him long term on the MLB roster. Mattingly refused to bench him but is giving him days off and practice days. Thats great, but when you arent in fear of losing your job... we all get complacent. I'm not saying Lebatard did this for those reasons, and it's a little fucked up... but don't leave a guy batting .160 on a Major League Roster after you traded the most productive outfield in history because you didn't want to pay them. He should have been sent down in early May. They want to develop youngsters at the MLB level, they can deal w the pressure.

    Looking for a ticket stub from 6-8-18

    If 6-8 was the Sunday game, I can mail you mine- would just need your address through a private message. For stubs, the best place to look is ebay. Over the years I've been been lucky enough to get tickets going as far back as 1998, and all 5 days I was looking for in a row. Theres one guy who usually lists new tickets every month- from Marlins games. just keep your eyes peeled.

    Stan Meek no longer VP of scouting

    Been said Hill is here Because he was found to be competent but overruled by Loria and Loria’s yes men. Irs one of those, we heard your good but was handcuffed- prove it type of things. Most bad signings he advocated against and begged to use the money in different ways, I could see Samson giving Jeter the 411 and Jeter taking it into consideration. Samsons interviews w lebatard have been refreshingly honest and transparent. I dig em.

    Miami Herald does another Jeter hit piece

    Thanks for that. Funny thing is he probably doesn’t even realize it’s a Piazza Marlins jersey as my profile pic.

    If you can’t take the see the irony of following the Mutts and A’s to “get away from this mess” then you’re truly a moron. Anyone on this board knows who my first team is and has been since I was 5. gFY

    Miami Herald does another Jeter hit piece

    That’s cute, considering I’m a member of a Marlins message board and passively follow my grandfathers favorite team. Then again, you’re very likely the same person who can’t ckme up with your own opinion and decides to attack the poster instead.

    Because those people you don’t care about.... that’s who every ownership group has been trying to bring back since 1998. Without those “schmucks” we’re a bottom 5 attendance team and have no leverage to get a top 5 tv deal. Hell, we probably won’t even get top 20 without those “fans”. They make this a major market, right now we went broke at the blackjack table and were playing penny slots for the last 20 years.

    I don’t think there were any two pitchers, but the effort should have been made to keep this team as it was for one more year. Go after Vargas and Cobb if you must’ve, especially in this dead market. Realistically, going into February with the same team as last year should have been the goal. Blow it up at the AS break if you must, or go for the unemployed starters in a week from now who will settle for a one year deal and a promise to ship em where they want to if it doesn’t work out. But to come in like a wrecking ball a month into their ownership? Those casual fans silverbullet hates just turned their back casually for good. When was the last time anyone on this board saw a marlins fan in the wild? How often has it been? I haven’t seen a regular marlins hat or shirt in three months outside of my own, and let me tell you- I get shit everytime for it. I’m in the kendall area for comparison.

    Here’s the deal, all those people you just mentioned..... those are the people who they are trying to bring back into the fold- and they’ve failed them with this “build”. Its obvious the fans who know the team can comprehend it if they want to- but those same fans had the stadium 1/3 of the way full the last 5 years. This build ran those fans off for good, we’ll see them for a playoff run or three, but never casually again. The team may not have been good, but seeing it eventually get to 70 wins next year and THEN blowing it up would have saved this market. As Lebatard says, in 25 years when the lease is up- they are going to point to how WE didnt support the team in this market and why it’s going to Puerto Rico or Montreal. MLB did nothing to keep the market either.

    This, it’s not accepted by many. This board is a minority, AND I’d even say this is he one that hurt this market the most because the expectation was things were going to change. To many it’s 97,05, and 12 all over again.
