  1. I think you have to register a single hit first in order to become eligible at even a sub-replacement level......... lol
  2. This is great news for the minor leaguers, and as said should've been done some time ago.
  3. I simultaneously don't want either of the Dodgers or Braves to win. But seeing as LA has been in the world series the last 800 years in a row, I guess I'm "rooting" for Atlanta in the "indifferent but if I had to choose one" sense.
  4. Lol, this season was one big bowel movement.
  5. Manager wants to do it an old school way, FO wants it a modern analytical way? I guess?
  6. Naturally. You don't usually get fired after getting your team from .500 to the playoffs.
  7. Do we have to include the obligatory Yankees = Marlins job connection rumor?
  8. Yeah, I remember Eduardo filled in for a while years back. I didn't like him then. Have heard him briefly on some national broadcasts and still don't like him lol.
  9. We could get any of these things today! lol
  10. It'd be nice to have a synced up view to show where he was when the ball went over, but at the very least he looked to be at least halfway between 2nd and 3rd already by the time the ball had landed, at which point I think he should be given 2 bases from where he was when it went out, which would be scoring. Had he not passed second when it went over, I'd be ok with putting him at 3rd, because you can't assume he'd have scored from there.
  11. If they can work out an extension as part of the trade, that's one thing. But yeah, with only a year left, he's not the guy.
  12. Here's MLBTR's arb predictions. Marlins (13) Jesus Aguilar – $7.4MM Richard Bleier – $2.5MM Jorge Alfaro – $2.7MM Garrett Cooper – $3.0MM Dylan Floro – $2.4MM Brian Anderson – $4.5MM Elieser Hernandez – $1.4MM Sandy Alcantara – $4.5MM Pablo Lopez – $2.5MM Lewis Brinson – $1.3MM Jon Berti – $1.2MM Magneuris Sierra – $700K Jeff Brigham – $600K At minimum, the bold (Sierra and Brinson) can be dumped for around 2M savings. Sierra is beyond useless, and Brinson's time is up for me - if he goes on and does decently with another team, so be it - he's had chances here and never taken the opportunity, whether it's pressure or what, he just hasn't gotten it done. Move on Marlins. The italics are other question marks at best for another potential 7.5M savings. I'm not advocating dumping Cooper, just saying he could be moved somehow as others have discussed. I'd rather keep him if we can confirm the DH which would be good for him and his injury history, with some occasional 1B games to get other guys rest. Alfaro - guess they could keep him as a backup? But getting expensive for a guy that can't hit, can't catch, can't call a good game, and has passed balls every other pitch. I'd rather have a Mathis-esque backup that's great at game calling/defense. I know they like Berti, and I have too, but as the price tag climbs and he didn't do as well this past year, do they keep him? Brigham, I honestly don't know enough about - is he worth keeping?
  13. That was the good thing about Rich and Tommy - they had great banter together, while also realizing not every single second of air time needed to have rambling *cough Holly *cough. They wouldn't go radio silent for minutes, but also would take a break for a second and just let the game happen.
  14. I honestly don't know what happened/what play you're referring to, as I haven't watched any baseball in months, but it's the Rays, the league won't care. If the roles were reversed and the Red Sox got hosed, there'd be a press conference and the rule changed the next day.
  15. Joe Girardi this this between his Yankee and Phillies gigs. Saw him earlier this evening.
  16. If anything, it'd make the hot garbage the team will be without any moves more watchable....
  17. I think Rich just got hired by the Angels in the middle of this past season to be their PBP guy, unfortunately. I wanted him back too. I'm just glad Holly is gone - Severino, while still too national sounding, at least has gotten better over the last couple seasons. Holly just seemed to get more and more annoying, to my point. Sounded like Tommy would be open to doing some analyst stuff, though not 162 games at his age.
  18. I agree that given the team's history, they'll have to overpay for any FAs, but even then there's a limit to the overspending......to build on @SilverBullet's example, you don't give Castellanos 300M when his market is maybe half that.....it's market + 10% or something.
  19. Agreed. I'm shifting to not caring/watching from afar without moves being made. Yup, I think the consensus was after the pandemic season, we understood being hesitant with purse strings, but that things needed to be done, and they didn't.
  20. Maybe.....hopefully. If 40M total is all they're spending, there's no hope lol. I don't see them blowing out the farm they've built to facilitate trades for everything we'd need either.
  21. If this is true, they're only planning on spending 40M total over x years spread out over x number of guys? yikes.
