  1. Outside of Kintzler, Garica, and perhaps Boxberger, these replacements are probably just about equal to the rest of the current pen. Hopefully Neidert and Dugger avoided infection though because they will be needed for the rotation for now. If the position players are mostly OK outside of the guys we know for sure are out, the Marlins may be able to stay afloat for a week or so until they can start getting regulars back.
  2. 6th bullpen arm added. The entire bullpen has to be infected.
  3. I don't buy the argument that the Marlins have less value to Fox Sports because they already have the Rays deal. Tampa is a completely different market. This guy is claiming that the RSN is going to just ignore the #16 (Miami-Ft. Lauderdale) and #36 (Palm Beach) markets in the country because they already have a team in another part of the state locked into a deal. It's like saying an RSN in Pennsylvania would be OK not having the rights to Pirates games because they already have the Phillies deal. It's nonsense. The 2 markets are completely different and both are valuable.
  4. I have to imagine this is a minor league deal, so I think they will only need 1 spot for now.
  5. Cishek, Kintzler, Hudson, and Will Harris seem like the best available RP on the market that have closing experience.
  6. I'm not entirely sure that they traded for Villar just to flip him at the deadline. While that is certainly a possibility, if Villar turns in another season like he did last year, he's young enough for the Marlins to want to extend at some point. Another possibility would be to keep him the year, give him the qualifying offer, and then collect a draft pick if he signs elsewhere. Either way they decide to go, they still should end up with more than they gave up.
  7. Urena is the scheduled starter tomorrow. I wonder if there is a trade close? Or could be an injury to someone else on the staff.
  8. Yeah there was a similar article last year. I don’t know much about Denbo. Maybe he’s just a jerk that wants to be surrounded by “yes men”. Ultimately, he’ll be judged on how much talent he can bring in and if they win. However, like I said, the entire article feels like piling on when the team is down. There’s paragraph after paragraph of former employees saying why he’s terrible and then towards the end it says that this year has been a kinder, gentler Denbo and gives an example from an employee that was a holdover from the past regime.
  9. Basically says a lot of former employees found him difficult to work with, he doesn’t like to be told he’s wrong, has high standards, and that he has a short fuse. Basically blames a blowup he had in Greensboro about their bat dogs for why they are no longer a Marlins affiliate. He claims he was angry that the dogs were too close to the players food...the Greensboro owner says he wanted the dogs removed. After many words about how bad a person he is, the article did say he’s been better this year with more of his own people. Overall it paints a pretty poor picture of him as a leader.
  10. A reliever or 2 definitely have to be added. Serio Romo, Bud Norris, Adam Warren, and Ryan Madson make sense. Perhaps even taking a flier on AJ Ramos on a minor league deal. Also, with Brinson, Dean, Cooper, Sierra, and Granderson, and Rosell Herrera the only OFs in camp with MLB experience (not counting Anderson), I would think signing another OF to at least a minor league deal would be wise. There are still a bunch of useful OF out there and the Marlins should have some money to spend. Adam Jones, CarGo, Span, Parra, and Melky Cabrera all make sense.
  11. Bit of a weird move with Isaac Galloway and Jeff Brigham on the 40 man roster. I assume there is a trade market for Wittgren...maybe even in a JT trade?
  12. Why would he need to stay on the Marlins 25 man roster if he was a Rule 5 pick last year?
  13. Renderings of what will replace the statue and the new standing area in RF from Sports Business Daily.
  14. Not really sure how any of this works, but Lukas also said that there were some changes to the Marlins set last year that weren't included in the style guide and still made it onto the field, so perhaps what is included is not a fully developed concept.
