I sooo hope to see him come out fiery hot from the start of the season to hush up a few people here. I have always liked the guy. He got dumped on sooo much around here

Here's hoping to a breakout this year. This guy has all the power in the world and can hopefully make do on his talent.

I expect him to do a whole lot better this year. Bringing up his average to around 280 and hitting 5-10 more hrs is not out of the picture. This guy will be instrumental to our success this season.

Great news! It made me sick to see Mike limp towards foul ground just to catch a foul out..

Good news. I think the 2007 season will be a "lets see what we have" year for the Marlins. The young guys will have to prove they belong and this specially means Jacobs and Hermida. These were the guys that played hurt last season. Ugla and Willingham also need to prove they can be counted upon for the future. I think Ramirez is the real deal. The starters other than Dontrelle also need to have a good sophmore year. They need to adjust to the major league hitters as they adjust to them. Bullpen and closer, well we will have to wait and see.

Hopefully sometime SOON we will have the deal of the stadium in place, and perhaps with that promise Mr. Loria will decide to spend some cash to address the teams needs so that in 2008 the Marlins can seriously contend for the NL East title.

Hopefully he will stay off of the DL- otherwise it will be Aaron Boone and Jason Stokes getting a chance.

Yup seems like he makes the big money on the DL

.282/.350/.530/.880, 32 HR, 109 RBI
I think those numbers are realistic. He needs to work on not pulling every pitch, like Cabrera told him. Pitchers worked him outside and he tried to hit it into the upperdeck in right field, and ended up striking out. He got hot after he made that adjustment initially (against the cubs, double off the wall to end the game).

You think we could pay Carlos Delgado a little money to come back and work with Jake on his "power to all fields?" I loved watching Delgado hit to the opposite field!! They pitch him outside, so he hits it to left with enough english on the ball to send it into the left field corner for a double! I couldn't get enough of that!!
