  1. I dont see why a player like Marte wouldnt accept a deal with a vesting option or two and/or incentive based escalators. the real issue is the base so many have mentioned is already 20 mil MORE than the low ball insulting offer the front office supposedly presented. I mean there is cheap and trying to get a good deal. Offer 3/40 if you want that. 3/30 is just flat insulting to a player like Marte.
  2. Absolutely. Which we have no reason to actually believe isnt the case.
  3. Its not even that ok of an offer honestly.
  4. If all you are focused on is race then yes i guess it can. Its meant to be a distraction from the real discussion though. The question you posed with no context is meant to be a distraction and go down some weird tangent at hand which is all fine and dandy. But context is always needed. Say for instance: 2 blacks out of 10 workers when the other 8 are white means something far more than a workplace with. Doesnt even take into account the gender issues. 2 Blacks, 2 Hispanics, 2 Asians, 2 Whites and 2 mixed race folks. Of which there is a 50/50 split among gender. So to say 2 out of 10 workers are black is meaningless in respect to insightful conversation.
  5. I'm sure Sherman didnt say 'offer whatever they think is right', because some might think the right amount is 18-20 AAV. Generally speaking owners set budgets and then let their baseball people figure that out within the budget. Though for big deals the owners usually sign off on them or any deal that would significantly affect the budget.
  6. What's ironic is that Jeter the player would have told Jeter the front office guy to go fuck himself and find himself a new team with an offer that insulting.
  7. too bad marlins are at 3/30 which is 15-20 million less than what Marte wants. Good luck.
  8. nah. you are just an angry little man. though not really sure why its not in the MLB forum.
  9. I'd consider it if it allowed my paycheck to grow when ball games were won.
  10. No, I'd be focused on winning ball games. I assume the fan base would be happy, but the goal would be to win ball games however possible. Gotta earn that next contract.
  11. basically EVERYBODY are a bunch of snowflakes these days.
  12. The event was the Fourth of July celebration that is on PBS annually and has been for some 30 years. I normally find it quite boring so I of course didnt watch, so no clue what the controversy is. But then again if you sneeze these days someone has an issue with it, so who knows what happened.
  13. I wouldn't be their fan. I'd be their manager.
  14. Days like today makes me thrilled to deal with the bullshit of my team over the bullshit of this team any day of the week.
  15. Marlins keep being the Marlins. This ownership is more miserly than the Loria regime. And with more money to spend as well!
  16. 30 mil AAV? Sounds a bit high , but i guess you do have to overpay...
  17. I'd have this team within 2-3 games of the playoffs currently, tbh.
  18. Isan Diaz should be on that team with Don Mattingly .
  19. Tommy doesnt work the Marlins. I'm sure Sinclair wouldn't care that much about critiquing a teams manager and sense of urgency. Other broadcasters do it religiously. i'm sure when its time to renew the contract the Marlins wont be all, well that one time Hutton critiqued us so fuck you. No
  20. seems like a reasonable ask. Marlins are trying to win every day you know!
  21. if you actually want a personal attack, I'll gladly give you one.
