  1. None of them really have lights out potential but we should at least get some solid guys out of the group. Though I wouldn't be all too hyped for Oganda, but Lazo looks pretty good too once he comes off the DL. Ege+Lazo would be a huge improvement of our current lefty situation. Flores and Pineyro both could becomes solid swing-men, as well.
  2. Though there are cases like how completely randomly made decisions would net better result than the FO's projections
  3. What article did I write bashing a Marlins player? (What article did I write, period?)
  4. Projection systems are obviously not perfect and especially so when talking about something as volatile as RP prospects, but... ZiPS projected ERA Breslow: 4.11 Jackson: 4.39 McGowan: 4.47 Naverson: 4.62 = 4.40 ERA Wittgren: 3.62 Ege: 3.40 Ellington: 3.71 Barraclough: 3.69 = 3.61 ERA And we're paying Brewslow/McGowan/Naverson a combined 3.7m (or, in other words, roughly what it'd have taken to keep Alvarez). At least Jackson is only making the minimum
  5. We have several guys in the minors that aren't world beaters but are probably better than them and at least have upside.
  6. Rojas is pretty cool as a 25th guy. And at least Ichiro is cute.
  7. I'm hoping so. The payroll is going to sky rocket in 2018 and I doubt he'll be wanting to write those checks. Which is also why I don't think you trade Jose. Our window for competing is the next two years, before the payroll blows up. And I think you still get quite a bounty for him pre-2018.
  8. It's always been my goal to be an analrapist
  9. No, it really is that bad. Naylor and Garrett are our only prospects better than C's, and they're still not that good. Most of our prospects wouldn't be in other team's top 20. They're all #5 starters, run-of-them-mill BP arms, or a position player that'll be lucky to break into the majors.
  10. I'm actually still finishing my degree, meaning I'm not above an internship :cool But working for the Marlins in any way sounds dreadful. I also imagine the job would be akin to trying to explain things to BroncoBob.
  11. I'm pretty sure part of Samson's job is to take vitriol away from Loria. I recall there being several instances where it was often reported something was Loria's doing, then Samson would later make a comment about how it's his/Hill's head on the line.
  12. There is no precedence of somebody winning that, and there have been a LOT of instances in the past. And Ozuna's argument is pretty weak - he was doing terrible before being sent down and the guy who replaced him (Gillespie) is doing fine. Kris Bryant earlier this year has a better case than Ozuna. Only way to win something like this is injury related, like how Anibal won his grievance.
  13. Actually -2 prospects, since we would have gotten a draft pick for Latos walking if we offered arbitration..
  14. Because he's posting absolutely fantastic peripherals. But after Nolasco, I'm very scared of a "comes out of nowhere to post great season, then follows up with still good peripherals but terrible ERA." Also why I was okay with trading Eovaldi and seems like same deal there (and he's still posting a good 3.42 FIP) But Carrasco's peripherals easily tops both of theirs. If we got him, I'd be very happy.
  15. I doubt we're talking about Urbrina at all if A-Gon didn't become a great player. Because A-Gon became great, people bring up if it's a trade that should have been made. You then have people on both sides, one of which is going to talk up the trade as great. Never once heard Craig Counsell brought up as one of the greatest trades the Marlins ever made. Deadline dead in 1997 and he scored the game winning run. But no one ever talks about it because it was Mark Hutton who was traded for him, and he was out of the majors two years later. Nor Darren Daulton. 1.121 OPS while starting 5 WS games and appearing in all 7. We gave up Billy McMillon for him. Who?
  16. Jeter was the #6 overall pick and #16 prospect for BA after that year. He was incredibly far from being a no-name prospect. If they could have gotten Jeter for Harvey and didn't, that is a dumb move for an expansion team no where close to competing. Especially considering we're talking about a guy who's on the wrong side of 30, dealing with injury issues, and a free agent very soon. People were calling for Cishek to be moved this past offseason. And if we got a top 16 prospect for him, people would have been ecstatic.
  17. Yes, keep the guy who's ranked 81st out of 94 pitchers in FIP, 83rd in xFIP. Even though he will command more than he's worth in arbitration because of his ERA and this is the best "trade high" time ever to move him. :unsure
  18. ...going by what? Marisnick is really, really not good. :unsure Ozuna's worst season has literally been as good as Marisnick's best season.
  19. Something people haven't brought up on: He replaced Morse with Ichiro in the bottom of the 7th. So why did he not pinch run for Morse in the top of the 7th? Ichiro very likely scores on that double. Complete lack of foresight and planning. Just an absolutely terribly managed game. It bears repeating infinitely how bad the 8th inning bullpen management was.
  20. In defense, Dayton was DFA'd off the 40 man roster and none of the other 29 teams wanted him and he's, I believe, a MILB FA at the end of the year so he's likely gone in a couple months. But considering our top 3 LH RP right now are Dunn, Hand, and Conley...I don't know why you wouldn't at least see what he's got at the major league level with that kind of track history.
  21. I'd definitely suggest checking out Delirium Nocturnum. It's more expensive and harder to find, but it's super tasty. Tremens is their more famous beer, but I think Nocturnum is light years better.

    7/12 Postgame

    I remember Kyle Kaminska's dad used to post here, which I think made us root for him even more to make it. Looks like that's not happening, though
  23. Dietrich and Rojas. Neither are future starters but could be useful bench pieces. It's funny how polar opposite they are - Dietrich has staying power if he can learn to field, Rojas does if he can learn to hit.
  24. You've got two young guys who've performed in the minors this year and a chance to see if they have sticking power. But no, let's go with the washed up 32 year old
