  1. Well, at least it seems likely we will exceed a negative 1 million expectation
  2. So what's the limit on downvotes? Should have just gone back to old Billy in the new fucking uniform
  3. This just in, the Marlins have a history of trading Talent. In related news, sky, blue.
  4. If he doesn't play really well, he's not going to end up with that season in 21
  5. If he plays really well, he becomes tradable.
  6. Pretty good return, definitely better than some of the stuff we got last year.
  7. Personally, I like having a third base coach whose nickname would be windmill
  8. The 2005 team was better than last year's team, particularly in pitching, and the farm system was better. As far as this batch of trades, there are too many people with 2019 and later ETAs to judge anything.
  9. Not the managing owner. Loria was the owner, in the way people mean when they say owner, not those guys in Montreal with 5%. Jeter is the CEO, that is a role where he can be out there talking, along with hill. Just like Epstein and Hoyer are (to use the Cubs example). Instead, the Herald, which will always hate the Marlins, doubly so due to Sherman, defines the story.
  10. Not fair, with all 4 pitching to their potential it could be as high as 26th.
  11. He's not the owner, he happens to hold some ownership. He is the CEO. Ryan and Luhnow have been everywhere for the Astros. I listen to the Leadoff Spot on MLB network, have for years, those guys are on every week. Epstein and Hoyer are commonly heard/seen talking about the Cubs as well. I never hear from Jeter and almost never from Hill. As a fan, I don't like what they did. But as a baseball person, I understand it completely. As a PR and salesperson, I shake my head at how this team has handled its messaging for the last 20 years.
  12. Realmuto is a foundational player. He can make up part of a Core four or five that we could ride for a decade. I don't even think the Mets have a legit grade A prospect right now. Certainly not any pitchers, nor any with an ETA before 2020
  13. It is gaining in popularity. It goes on you, like a tumor, or fungus. Personally, I've always liked it for how over-the-top absurd it is. Imagine how much people would have come to love it if that lineup was kept together and that thing was going off a lot.
  14. In limited settings. He should have been on all the shows, locally and nationally, saying the same thing.
  15. We can watch him tonight. He looked a bit better in that second start, not good mind you, just better. If he can make the slider work, then the change-up will be deadly. Maybe he should be in the minors to figure that out, maybe not. That all depends upon his character and ability to leave the last one behind him.
