  1. That's not how I saw it. Panik is making $1.8 million this year...double what Cimber is making. Plus Cimber is the most desirable part of the trade for Toronto. He's been solid and has 4 years of control left. He has value on the market. So Toronto is paying the majority of the Dickerson contract and Panik is to even the salary a bit.
  2. Not knowing the full financial situation, but between the local TV deal (assuming $50 million), national TV (I believe $60 million per team), and naming rights ($9 million), the Marlins should be pulling in about $120 million a year before selling a ticket. No excuse to not raise payroll going forward.
  3. Frisaro reports the deal is just under $10 million per year. If so, excellent job by the Marlins. The highest current deal is the Braves at $10 million from SunTrust.
  4. Exactly. That has always been an underrated point about the Tampa Bay deal.
  5. $80 million is the reported amount of the Rays new deal (although they say it is less), so I'm sure that something in that range was the expectation of the new ownership group. Of course that was before Covid and when there was something of a TV rights boom. Something in the $50 million-ish range was always most realistic.
  6. The most recent TV deal was KC. According to Fangraphs' TV deal list, that one was $44 million annually (for 6 years). KC is the 34th biggest TV market. Miami-Ft. Lauderdale is 18th (not including Palm Beach County which is 39th). Even taking into account a pandemic economy, you have to think the Marlins deal is something like 6 years in the $50-$55 million range, which would be substantially more than double.
  7. Probably because it's not $80 million...but something in the $50 range is a huge improvement.
  8. @CraigMish Sources indicate the Marlins new multi-year TV deal is more than doubles their previous one annually from a financial perspective. Substantially more than double. In addition the deal is more than 5 years in length. 9:49 AM · Mar 24, 2021·Twitter Web App
  9. “Disappointing” could mean anything. I’m sure they didn’t get the $80 million they wanted, but at the same time, Sherman did indicate it was more than double the old deal. My guess is somewhere in the $45-50 million range, which is still a big improvement. It’ll be interesting to see how long a deal this is. The real question is whether or not they did better than the deal Samson negotiated before the sale. I think the story is that Samson had a deal for around $50 million a year and he told Jeter he could either accept it for them or let them negotiate their own deal, which they obviously chose to do. I guess we will find out if that was a smart move.
  10. The concept of the fish tanks were always better in theory than in reality.
  11. Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz · 4h Good news: There will be TV for at least 1 Marlins spring game, next Monday against Cards at 1 p.m. on Fox Sports Florida (featuring Marlins & Cardinals announcers). All or nearly all regular season games will continue to be televised in Marlins new TV deal, to be finalized soon.
  12. With Hurt being the 2nd player, that means they still need to clear a spot for Duvall.
  13. Mish himself said that he thought the Marlins were done and that RF would probably be a Brinson/Sierra platoon. So, as much as I think Mish does a good job on Marlins coverage, he doesn't always know everything. I would think that if they were willing to give Kintzler a $2 million MLB deal, then they will probably pivot to someone else with a similar offer.
  14. There are still a number of good closer-types out there. Rosenthal, Workman, Melancon, Peacock, Clippard, Shane Greene, Kela, Jeffress, Romo, etc... Have to think one of them ends up here.
