Is the magic over?

I believe it is...come on look at this team right now..

 

they are sad, no spark, terrible luck (as I type Astros get yet another pop-up hit that was not hit well at all)

 

Beinfest needs to make a serious move, and I'm not talking about Jay Powell and Barajas...I'm talking Jason Kendall...screw the bullpen, there isn't anything to hold right now

 

We all know what happens next. If the Marlins are not successful this year, the crowd is gone again and we have nothing. If Loria really wants a successful team in SoFla he is gonna have to give Beinfest some funds to work with (Astros have just scored again)

Too early to say that. We'll have an A.J. Burnett appearance soon. Hopefully that can spark some magic in the team.

That's what I'm waiting for. It's always been new players that have shaken out the success of this team, and that could be the original badass: Mr. A.J. Burnett.

the game in san fran that we gave up the 9-2 lead did the opposite of the game in boston in which we came back from losing 9-2. THE MAGIC IS GONE!!!

This isn't directed towards you DTrizzle, actually I was thinking about this earlier today:

 

What constitutes a successful season for the Marlins? World Series Champs? NL Champs? Making the Playoffs? 2nd in NL East(but no Wild Card)? Above .500 record?

 

I'm just curious what expectations are being placed on a team that has such a low payroll. This is team that struggles to draw 12,000+ on a weeknight, as defending World Champions. Don't tell me they can't draw, they drew over 3 million their first year, that averages out to 37,000+ per game...they didn't all show up on the weekends.

 

What does it take(minimum) for fans to feel that the Marlins are successful?? And worth going to see??

I agree. The team looks like it is headed towards to bottom half of baseball, and although I am not one to bash a team (for the most part) right now the Marlins are missing that spark they had in early season.

We are lacking a clubhouse leader.

 

Jack needs to do something to get these guys going. It's time to stop being the good guy. It's time for another in your face team meeting to light a fire under their butts.

 

They look unenergetic and lost out there right now.

i feel everyone's pain....this is not bad luck, this is bad baseball. but just like when the Yankees were hitting .200 for the first month of the season, you've gotta know this is a slump, and that is all. a lot of what happened to us last year was luck, and we can't expect that every year - we've probably got some bad karma coming our way just by the law of averages. but what we're seeing is just terrible baseball, this team is simply better than that. not even the Tigers last year scored at the low rate we've been scoring at, and they were one of the worst teams in the history of baseball. baseball is a game of percentages and averages....Castillo is not going to hit .250, Lowell is not going to hit .350. at the end of the day, everyone hits about what it says on the back of their baseball card, and if everyone on the team is below that amount, all that means is that there's hitting coming around the corner somewhere down the road. it sounds like an empty promise right now in light of everything we've seen recently, but it's true.

don't worry about attendance, and don't ask for clubhouse leaders, we have plenty. What we need here is guys to start playing like they should: Beckett, Willis, Castillo, so far all three = CRAP. f*** the bullpen, this team is relying on their starting pitching, which is suppossed to be one of the finest in MLB, right now, they aren't playing up to their name. Once they start to, forget the slump...

Look, the biggest problem is not the starting pitching. It is lack of run support.

 

There is way too much pressure on the rotation, because they feel like if they give up a few runs the game is lost.

 

A few more bats in the lineup would ease the burden, and the starting pitching would respond favorably.
