  1. Opening Day Postponed

    Players did not agree to any pay cut ... merely a proration based on shorter length of season and their contractual salary. You could call it a reduction in hours, I guess, but not a cut.
  2. Marlins poised to add another elite prospect

    The ideal outcome for Miami is Lacy and then JT Ginn with second pick. Arguably, the team would net both the top LHP AND RHP in the draft. Ginn had TJS in March and would return early 2021.
  3. Finalizing the 2020 Opening Day Roster

    Jazz, Monte, Lewin, Jesus, Sixto, Cabrera, Neidert ... those are the guys I want to watch. makes that possible!
  4. 6 more cuts from big-league camp

    Are the big league Marlins just the second best team in their organization? Wichita fans are in for a treat.
  5. Who's going to pitch for the Marlins this season?

    Ten different pitchers started games last season. Gallen (the most effective), Richards, and Noesi are no longer with the team. That leaves C Smith, Yamamoto, Lopez, Alcantara, Hernandez, Dugger, and Urena. Yamamoto yielded the lowest BAA and WHIP. Alcantara threw the most innings. Smith and...
  6. Brinson 'a different guy'

    ONE whiff this spring ... that's helpful ZERO walks ... that's a problem
  7. Alfaro cleared to resume baseball activities

    Jorge Alfaro has been cleared to resume his baseball activities ... namely whiffing and chasing down passed balls.
  8. 10 cut from major league camp

    I thought there was also 100% agreement that Sixto looked really fat..
  9. MLBPA calls Jeter cheap

    Jeter cheap? Hardly. Yankees paid him a gazillion dollars to hit .256 with a .616 OPS in his final season. That's way beyond expensive. Makes Pujols seem cheap.
  10. Clevelander removed from Marlins Park

    No more Clevelander ... one less place to land a twelve-dollar beer.
  11. So... no Sixto? 🤦🏻‍♂️😔

    Six-ton makes it all look so effortless ... especially the conditioning.
  12. Future OF

    Here's a tough one: Predict 'em in order. 2020 OPS for Marlin OF prospects Harrison, Sanchez, Bleday, Encarnacion, Burdick and Misner. Last minor league season at various levels: Peyton .949 Monte .792 Jerar .756 Kameron .750 Jesus .723. Bleday .640. My guess is Harrison, Encarnacion, Sanchez...
  13. Opening Day Roster/Lineup

    CF Berti SS Villar 3B Anderson LF Dickerson 1B Cooper RF Ramirez C Alfaro 2B Alvarez*** Watch out for Eddy to be biggest story of the spring Bench: Rojas, Cervelli, Joyce, Sierra, Aguilar SP Smith, Lopez, Yamamoto, Alcantara, Hernandez BP Vezia, Brigham, Kintzler, Sharp, Stanek...
  14. Brad Boxberger invited to ST

    His name is Eddy Alvarez. The late bloomer impresses everyone with his Berti-like demeanor/effort.
  15. Dietrich to be LF on Opening Day

    If the goal is to be competitive as well as evaluative, Brinson, Sierra and Lee comprise the OF. They are superior defenders with great arms. Dietrich lands at 2B, where he's actually done a reasonable job, in platoon with Rojas. Castro needs to be the SS. There is no Addison Russell or Didi...

    CF B. Lee C   Realmuto SS  Castro 1B  Bour 3B  Prado 2B  Dietrich LF  Brinson RF Sierra P   Chen, Straily, Urena, Peters, Richards BP  Steckenrider (CL) Barraclough, Wittgren, Conley, Garcia, Ziegler, Tazawa, Beltre Jeter will want to put an entertaining, competitive team on the field...
  17. Realmuto Trade Rumors

    My take is different. Why not target Kieboom (and try to keep him at SS, where the bat would play up), Raudy Read (a Double A catcher who hit 17 HR last season), and Daniel Johnson (one of only seven minor leaguers with 20-20 HR and SB last season)? His LH bat would fit perfectly with RH Brinson...
  18. Christian Yelich traded to the Brewers for Brinson, Diaz, Harrison, Yamamoto

    A little different perspective. I think Harrison is the marque name here. Scouts compare his tools to Acuna and Robles - just lagging because of his three-sport emphasis. Can Brinson hit .282 with 81 rbi this year or next (like Yelich)? Why not? Diaz is a great prospect at 2b or ss (MILW MiL POY...
  19. Realmuto Trade Rumors

    Realmuto's five tools and durability are hugely valuable but I wouldn't close my eyes at an offer of four of Washington's top ten beyond Robles and Soto. A SS like Kieboom would be a huge asset for a team starved at that position. Antuna is also a five tool infield prospect and only 18.
