    What is everyone wearing for opening day?

    That’s interesting.

    What is everyone wearing for opening day?

    I wasn’t able to go to fanfest because I was working, but I’m curious as to were most people wearing the new logo or were there still more people with the older logos?

    Blue jersey new logo or old logo?

    What is everyone wearing for opening day?

    I believe one positive of the logo change is that I can get old Marlins merchandise for really cheap. I can’t decide what to wear for opening day. I don’t have any Marlins merchandise with the new logo, but I’m just genuinely curious to see if a lot of people are wearing the new merchandise or just wearing their old Marlins merchandise.

    Yelich vs Samson

    6 teams per league like NFL is fine, too.

    ESPN Spring Training Preview/Excitement level for each team

    Yamamoto dominated in afl is he coming to Spring Training?

    Yelich vs Samson

    I feel like the league should be 154 games like the old days, but have 8 playoff teams per league. Baseball needs to expand the postseason to combat 10 teams tanking. Make baseball more competitive. More teams have a chance.

    I’m very curious to see the starting rotation in 2-3 years.

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25557502/jt-realmuto-trade-continues-stunningly-sad-marlins-tradition “Of the Marlins' all-time top 25 players, by WAR -- Realmuto ranks 16th -- 23 have now been traded away, rather than held onto until they reached free agency. The other two truly are the exceptions that prove the rule: A.J. Burnett and the Marlins hated each other by the end, but Burnett made it to free agency because the "much-discussed" deal to send him to Baltimore "hit a snag" when the Marlins kept trying to throw more of their players into the swap. The other, Jose Fernandez, died in a boat crash before reaching free agency. The Marlins had tried to trade him too, according to former team president David Samson; it was the other team, Samson claimed recently, that stopped the deal. This is not normal. The Rockies, who debuted as a franchise the same year the Marlins did, have held onto nine of their all-time top 25 through free agency or retirement, and an additional four of those 25 are still on their roster. The expansion Diamondbacks have traded only 14 of their all-time 25, and even the notoriously proactive Rays have kept seven of their all-time top 25 through free agency. The Marlins are genuinely weird. They trade everybody. Every trade tells a story. But these 23 trades together tell three bigger stories. That's the first one: The Marlins are weird, all the time. In their own way they're the most stable franchise in baseball, because their weirdness is a permanent state. Each of these trades, on its own, could be justified for baseball or financial reasons, but none of these trades any longer stands on its own. They're all part of the ongoing story of the Marlins: Whoever owns them, whoever runs them, becomes, by definition, Florida Man.” Do you agree or disagree? I will die a Marlins fan. But good God ?

    Realmuto traded to Phillies

    I honestly think the Marlins did about as well as they could do. I hate the Phillies, but on paper, they had the best offer. Sixto is only 20. He has drawn some comparisons to Pedro. Stewart they say is a young Chris Sale, but idk we’ll see about him. I like that the Marlins got $250k in Intl Bonus $$ to possibly use. I think Alfaro will be a serviceable MLB catcher. I don’t see how people can trash the Marlins here ik I’m biased but this looks to be a good move. The only move I look back on that was bad that Jeter did was the Yelich deal. You could argue every other deal has been a W.

    Realmuto traded to Phillies

    Alfaro is a WC in this deal. 5 years of team control. Only 25. Some Plus Power and good defensively. Sixto Sanchez is only 20 y/o, but he has had injury concerns. I think Sixto could use a year of seasoning in minors before coming up next year. No sense in rushing him. Will Stewart is an intriguing piece. I like his stats. The International Bonus $$ could help Marlins sign Yolmer Sanchez. He was projected to be the starting SS for the Cuban National Team before he defected. ? Maybe the Marlins can convince the SS to sign if he can compete for the MLB right away. ? I honestly think Marlins did about as well as they could have done. I still cannot believe Machado and Harper haven’t signed, and it’s FEBRUARY! ? so many great FA’s still available. Dallas Kuechel, a Cy Young Winner, is still available.
