everyone seems to forget that finishing over .500 with the many issues we had this year was a major accomplishment.

 

we had no real catcher or bullpen till late in the season (with the exception of benitez), had issues with beckett's injuries and burnett not playing a full year.

 

when we went on a roll, multiple hurricanes killed us, but we still hung in to finish above .500

 

bravo marlins, its not a world series, but its still a year to be proud of.

 

burnett for cy young in 05!!!

celebrate the team not being completely dismantled ala 1998 and instead playing their hearts out... finishing over .500 is a great accomplishment.

 

2 world series in 11 years and you all ask for more.

 

ridiculous.

The Nerve of those a**holes who expect World Series winning teams to contend for their division the next season. They know nothing about baseball, WS winning teams are expected to place third in their division next year.

The Marlins did contend for the division title until pitching tanked (Beckett went down, Penny in the summer heat, Tejerrible) and the Braves went on a roll.

 

At the time Frances hit the Marlins were 6 back of the Braves with 6 games left to play with them.

 

I'd say it was a successful season although I'm disappointed at the result. It could have been better.

I'm not disappointed, but going from World Series Champs to out of the playoffs, really isn't anything to celebrate :confused

The Angels did not make the playoffs during their season as defending World Champs and look how strong they've been since.

 

This season is a disappointment by some standards, but you can't really complain after a World Series and the first back to back winning seasons in franchise history.

We're not going to go out and get Colon and Vlady. Dang, we will lose some! I'm sure they were disappointed after last season.

You never know what could happen, since we most likely won't be resigning Pavano and some others and will try and trade ENC for some cheap prospects to unload his contract, we could find a way to be able to afford an offensive powerhouse like Magglio or Delgado... mabye.
