Personally, I feel both the BAMAs and HOYAs should wait before making their final judgment on this offseason. Whether it goes in a positive or negative direction, this trade is just the first step, so what you feel is going to happen is just conjecture on your part. Thats why Im OTF right now and will wait to see where the pieces fall.

I don't think this was form, his response to my email that is attached beneath. :hat


Dear Kevin, the Phillies & the Marlins are in two different situations
right now. The Phillies will open a new stadium next year, and the Marlins
are working hard to ensure our franchise's stability with various scenarios
now in play. We are one of 4 or 5 teams rasing our payroll next year, and
we hope to be as competitive as last year, even more. All Major League
Baseball teams try to win, but as you know, the playing field is not always
level. Our commitment to South Florida is strong and permanent. Have a
great day!

Regards,

David Samson

Mr. Samson,
As a fan looking for a home, it really discourages me to see the
dismantling of what could have been a great team with a considerable
future. Dealing Cliff Floyd took alot of balls, he represented the
Florida Marlins in many ways; he represented the right direction and
was a remnant of good times.
Do me a favor and make me a Phillies fan again, trade Mike Lowell to a
place that his hero Mike Schmidt played and it will give me a reason
other then Cliff to see a game in Veterans Stadium and the Phillies NEW
stadium the year after.
Simply put the Marlins are stepping in the wrong direction, something
that has followed you from the Expos to Florida. For the first time I
am seeing the Phillies make an effort to sign what it takes, maybe they
will sell the team which will be a dream of Phillies fans.
I always appreciate that the Marlins respond timely to questions and
not to the "hit and send" emails that seem prepared. There are enough
of us that recieved the same generic emails. We do compare notes. I
think if Jeff Loria doesn't want to compete, he should leave baseball.
Your team is obviously not trying to win. It is teams like the Marlins
that drive fans away from the game when the sport needs fans.
In order to sell tickets, you need something for the fans to buy. Its
not gonna happen with the circus being run. If its about money, just
make a circus in the stadium and more people will show up.
I beg on the decay of baseball that the Marlins do something positive.
God Bless,
Kevin Hance
Philadelphia

Yeah, gotta give them credit. I certainly wouldn't have responded to a letter like that.

David Samson is a good guy and is doing all he can.


I emailed him once and he was pretty prompt and kind in his reply.


I appreciate that. Something most organizations wouldnt do.


I guess you could call me HOYA, because this team is going to get it done. Management is doing a real good job of putting together a real good team. I am excited. As long as we can stay healthy.

Well after emailing Samson a few weeks back I have recieved a response....



Here it is...




Dear Adam, I have forwarded your e-mail to our Public Relations Department,
who will evaluate your suggestion regarding Marlinsbaseball.com. I also
disagree with your characterization that Tim Spoonybarger and Juan Pierre
do not make our team better today. We are adding great value to being a
Marlins' season ticket holder, as evidenced by our numerous season ticket
packages, designed for any fan who likes the Marlins. Thank you for your
e-mail.

Regards,

David Samson

BAMA OR HOYA ......

:burns

Well I don't believe in the current management but the recent moves that "puppet management" made were reasonable.What I believe in is our current players that they will improve and the Marlins are playoffs bound.I'll never be Hoya since you have to be loyal to the "puppet management" and believe in their so call "plan"....

LOL!!!!!!!!!!

I'm starting to believe in the "puppet management" and I will no longer consider myself neutral.I will no longer use "puppet management" in reference to Marlins front office.Loria and Samson have convince me that they are trying to make Baseball succesful once again.

HOYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've always been an Hoya, I'm a very conservative person who accepts change, but not drasticly. I think we have a good core of players, mut of them home grown, who are coming along together and are reaching that level of maturity. A good farm system like ours should give us the possibility to change any part of the big league machine when we feel is right. This kind of system takes long to flourish, but once it does, it is usually the type that will stay on top for a long time, because parts can be replaced little by little and by the time one more part needs to be replaced the previoulsly replaced part is already in big league shape. I really like this idea of having a deep farm system and guys that come along together, create a bond and a sense of family, i think the dodgers used to have that and they were a very good team for many years.

Its funny how things have changed over the years.


While I am not as BAMA as I was back then, I'd say the passion of the movement still exists.


But thats not the point, I think the HOYA v BAMA debates are something we are seeing here again, just not without the titles.

Which camp do you belong to?
