    Marlins to continue paying minor leaguers

    I didn’t mean that it was a PR move. I just meant that the club just may have more invested in that particular group of guys in the minors so offering to pay them would be the obvious thing to do when you dealt away so many proven big leaguers to rebuild the farm system like ten minutes ago

    Marlins to continue paying minor leaguers

    I can’t help but have a cynical opinion of this. The Marlins have a lot at stake with a big group of players that are minor league players. It would stand to reason that they’d want to do what it takes to stay in the good graces of that generation of players in the organization. It wouldn’t be...

    Clevelander removed from Marlins Park

    Indeed. And to compound the damage, all the time they spent reviewing architectural renderings for redesigns of the centerfield space distracted them from the metrics that would have lead them to making better deals. dISTraCtIOnS!!

    Clevelander removed from Marlins Park

    I have it on good authority that the tipping point in deciding to trade Yelich was the chlorine budget (too essential)

    Wells Dusenbury no longer covering Marlins; Sun Sentinel eliminates Marlins beat coverage

    I’m not saying I like it. I don’t work in the paper industry but I would think they looked at clicks and impressions then made a decision based on that. Marlins stories probably garner less interest than they’d hope. I thought Wells was a good reporter. I really liked Healey when he was...

    The position goes away but the assignments can still be handed out to someone else

    New Seats?

    Matt Joyce signed

    Castellanos signed with Cincinnati for four years 16M AAV. Player opt outs after 20 and 21. Interesting deal structure.

    Turf installation

    Normally I can pick up on the sarcasm. I failed this time.

    Turf installation

    I’m not a scientist so I apologize for any foolish question. I was just pondering the possibility that a synthetic material would conduct heat in a way that made the air temperature hotter at field level than if said playing surface were natural grass.

    Turf installation

    Arizona went to an artificial surface last year. I wonder if that impacted their roof closures.

    Turf installation

    Not sure about how fast the ball plays compared to grass. The new playing surfaces are more like grass which really also plays fast. I’m curious how the surface will affect the temperature on the field level. If temperatures are higher due to the conductivity of heat it would probably lead to...

    Sorry. It was a bit misleading. Some people probably came expecting pictures of the turf
