Yelich is back in town as the Brewers try to get back in the NL Wild Card race. Meanwhile, the Marlins try to inch their way closer to a top 4 draft pick next year.

Let's see Dugger continue to develop and turn in another solid start!

Gotta start to show me something Isan, like fucking anything bro..the hitless multi strikeout games are really kinda becoming a regular thing, and he's really kinda been up here for a bit now.

C'mon.  Gotta give credit to Derek and Mike Hill.  They've finally brought minor league baseball back to Miami.  Their season attendance figure will probably manage to top any other minor league club in the country!    Club ownership must be making money somewhere else so they can reduce taxable income by what they lose on the Marlins.    What exactly did these two genuises get for trading Yelich, Realmuto and last month, the heart of their almost adequate bullpen.  Alfaro, Brinson, Diaz, Sierra were not worth what was given up to get them, and the draft choices are years away ... if they ever work out ... and most don't.   Go Rays!  (That's the only major league team in Florida.)

Sierra was acquired in the Marcell Ozuna trade. I don't know if you have looked at his numbers lately, but Ozuna has not been the same with the Cardinals as he was in 2017 or 2014. This is the last year of control for Ozuna and he has been less valuable than the combination of Gallen and Alcantara. Adding in Sierra and Castano along with the 5 years of control for Sandy and Gallen and the Cardinals should definitely regret that trade. The Gordon and Stanton trades both look pretty good right now and even the Realmuto trade is likely to be a win considering team control between Alfaro and Sanchez compared to J.T. The only trade that is looking bad is the Yelich deal. But the Marlins still have a combined 21 years of team control to salvage from that one. 

Combining all of that with the International FA efforts, the better drafting and the community outreach and it is clear that the team is being run in a much better manor than Loria ever ran it. Likely within 3 years the Marlins will be a perennial contender. And stop with the claim that the tear-down was motivated by money alone. Any rational look at the state of the franchise would have come to the same conclusion as to the direction needed regardless of how much money they would be willing to put in.

These are the current contenders. All except for 3 have had seasons of 90+ loses in the last 10 years. From 2009-2018 there were a combined 33 seasons of 90+ loses from them. That means in the last 10 years among the current contenders nearly 22% of the seasons saw them to be around 20+ games outside of a playoff spot. Not including the Dodgers, Cardinals, and Yankees who never had 90+ loses, that number bumps up to 27.5% of seasons in the last 10 being way out of the playoff race.

90+ loss seasons:
