  1. It wasn't a great throw, but it was a heads up play and hit Olivo in the chest. It needed to be caught. It wasn't a great throw??? Are you f'ing serious???? It was the worst throw I've ever seen a major league player make. My dead grandmother could have made a better throw than that. The f'ing ball hit the dirt as soon as hit left his hand! Dude, that's the idea... it is easier for the catcher to receive it and tag the incoming runner if the ball hops off the ground... it was an OK throw with a very bad reception... whatever... this team doesn't know how to win in extras... you should be complaining about the idiot of Uggla keeping the bunt down after seeing Ramirez getting such a great jump... instead of letting the kid steal a base and get in scoring position he decided to strike out... and then Hanley was forced to try to steal a base... game over... lowly nationals 1 in the luck column... marlins 0 in how to win a baseball game in extra innings for dummies...
  2. It's good to be on a board full of optimists. or on a board full of overly optimistic fools?
  3. Very exciting team to watch next year. Just wonderring, what's our starting rotation for next year look like after the trade with the Cubs? The question is what's our lineup going to be like. The starting rotation and bullpen will be made of Willis and the 200 Venezuelan left-handers we traded the entire team for. Our lineup will have Willis batting first, Lenny Harris second, Cabrera third, and then we will platoon the Marlins Mermaids from 4th to 9th. Will we have enough Mermaids? I don't know. Somebody told me they just offered a 1 year contract to Felo Ramirez to hit cleanup... :blink: I'm in serious negotiations with the Marlins to cover their need at second base. But I am reluctant to sign because they may gut the team further. At this stage in my career, I want to play for a winner. Dude, you are 25 years old and a fellow Gemini... how can you talk about of "this stage in your career"...? :lol
  4. JP had one good year here and was very average or below average last year, anything that is considered a good prospect is a fair deal for him. The only player regarded as a potential super star who we traded are Delgado and in some minds Becket. We had a lot of high priced, decent players. Decent players are not that hard to find. The Marlins will be ok once they get to a city where they can have revenue to support a good team. You will not see a good Marlins team in South Florida unless Loria makes a deal with Huzienga. What? Do you work for the city of San Antonio perhaps? Jp will be missed but I don't feel this was that big of a loss. No, it just adds to the complete package of losses...

  6. An entire team, all growing up together. Think of last year's Indians or an even more clear cut example would be the Chicago Bulls in the NBA. The entire team is young. Everyone knows they all have talent, but they are going to make rookie mistakes. But every week, once a night or so, you'll probably see something special that reveals the talent that is underneath. To me, that's exciting to watch. Who's with me on that? Not me, and I can think rationally. I did the "entire team growing up" thing for 6 years before 2003 happened. I survived a personal record of 5 wins and 35 losses in games I attended in 1998 and I can tell you there is nothing exciting in seeing your team become a failed experiment of a single A team. And if we had a competitive team you would have no reason to expect "special things" happening in a more meaningful way. All that rebuilding crap, or "building for the future" BS, or "market correction" stupidity is just another excuse for the reality of this sport: you, the fan, are totally expendable. I will go to the games. I will watch them on TV until I start screaming and my wife threatens with the couch. I will follow them. But don't tell me that I need to agree with your definition of having fun watching this joke of a team in order to be labeled "rational".
  7. http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=ap-m...ov=ap&type=lgns Gonzalez and Castillo had been together since 1998, longer than any other active double-play combination. Florida may swing a deal to acquire a replacement for Castillo, Beinfest said. "I would not rule out looking at a reasonable free agent or a trade to fill the second base spot," he said. They might be looking at acquiring another inexpensive 2B. I wouldn't give up hope just yet. That's such a typical comment from the idiot of Beinfest. "I won't rule out..." Yeah, you won't rule out razing this team to the ground... you MF%^&%(*%*&(%^%%(*%((%% BEINFEST :ban SAMPSON :chair LORIA :hanged
  8. so, what do we have now? half of all left-handed people in Venezuela, a 1st baseman who only has 100 at bats at the major league level, a closer in the making whose name I can't pronounce w/o causing myself an aneurysm, and another pitching prospect who has spent five years of his professional live in A ball...? Wow, next season is going to be so exciting!!! this season is officially in the :toilet
  9. If JP and LoDuca go, what the hell is our payroll...$25M (sarcasm) That's actually really, really realistic. :lol In 1998 I think it was even lower than 25 million. Therefore, it is very realistic we reach that point. It baffles me that Girardi actually took on this job, knowing what was going to happen, to lose 200 games the next two seasons. That's not the way any new manager wants to start his managing career. Doesn't make sense at all... :banghead
  10. Who dares to say now... in Beinfest we trust? Let's see... :mad
  11. Or heck, we could go find Chris Clapinski again. :mischief2 :thumbup Bring em all back, where's Bruce Aven and Todd Dunwoody I want to vomit with the mention of those names. Don't worry, you will have plenty of opportunities to vomit for the next two years...
  12. Jesus... Are we not allowed to get any hitting prospects? Who the hell plays 2nd for us now? word is they will be auditioning Billy the Marlins and some of the Mermaids to cover 2nd base next season... Or heck, we could go find Chris Clapinski again. :mischief2 what nursing home is he living in now?

  14. I personally hope we try to trade for someone like Matt Holliday...the Rocks want Lo Duca right? Give them something else and get Holliday and JD Closser. I also want Gathright. Hell, as long as we're at it, I want Barry Bonds. Sorry... that would only qualify as "market incorrection" :whistle
  15. Don't now if it has been posted yet. If it was, my apologies. You can move it as you please (like always)... PIERRE DEAL TO YANKS HAS MARLINS PERKIN? December 2, 2005 -- The last time Juan Pierre played center field in Yankee Stadium, he helped the Marlins win the 2003 World Series. Now, Pierre could be returning to The Bronx as the Yankees? center-fielder. The cash-dumping Marlins have asked for lefty Sean Henn and right-handed reliever Scott Proctor for Pierre, and the Yankees didn?t reject the offer. When the Marlins started dumping salary by trading Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell to the Red Sox and Carlos Delgado to the Mets, the Yankees seemed cool on acquiring the 28-year-old Pierre. However, with only Bubba Crosby to replace Bernie Williams, the Yankees have been keeping tabs on who?s available. Possibly what makes Pierre attractive is that it?s likely a one-year deal, since Pierre can become a free agent after the season and the 2007 class of free agent center-fielders will include Andruw Jones, Torii Hunter and Mike Cameron. And there is always the possibility that Pierre performs well enough to be brought back. Pierre is arbitration eligible after making $3.7 million last year. According to several Sources, the Marlins also are shopping Pierre to Texas for pitching prospects and perhaps outfielder Laynce Nix, who annoyed Ranger brass by not playing winter ball after missing a good part of the season with an injury. Pierre would give the Yankees speed in center field and the pure leadoff hitter they haven?t had since Chuck Knoblauch left after the 2001 season. That would allow Derek Jeter to bat second, a spot he did with Knoblauch around when the Yankees won three straight World Series and came close to copping a fourth straight in 2001. While Pierre is coming off a down season in which the career .305 hitter batted .276 with an on-base percentage of .326, he batted .326 with a .374 on-base percentage in 2004. He also swiped 57 bases in 74 attempts. And he hit lefties (.299) better than righties .270) last season. When the other center fielders available are presented, Pierre stacks up. The Angels are shopping Darin Erstad and Steve Finley. The Dodgers are expected to trade Milton Bradley before Dec. 20. The Phillies asked for Chien-Ming Wang, possibly the Yankees? No. 3 starter, for Jason Michaels, who never has been a regular player. Carl Pavano?s name surfaced yesterday in a possible deal for Michaels. Tampa Bay could move Joey Gathright but he is raw. Unless Johnny Damon?s wishes for a seven-year contract decrease, the Yankees aren?t interested. The gamble in it for the Yankees is Henn. He is a 24-year-old lefty they thought enough of to promote from Double-A to the big leagues for an emergency start when Randy Johnson was scratched in May. In three games Henn was 0-3 with an 11.12 ERA. He was 5-5 with a respectable 3.23 ERA in 16 games for Columbus and 2-1 with an 0.71 ERA in four games for Double-A Trenton. However, the emergence of Wang and the chance that RHP Phil Hughes, the No. 1 pick in 2004, could be ready for the big leagues in 2007, softens the blow of losing Henn.
