djm305 Posted May 9, 2008 Share Posted May 9, 2008 This is from the ESPN Chat today with Jayson Stark.... fish fan: jayson if the marlins keep up this hot start and are in contention by the all star break,are they buyers or sellers? and if were buyers i would assume it would be for starting pitching do you see anyone out there that would look good on the marlins? SportsNation Jayson Stark: (1:33 PM ET ) If they're in it, they have to be buyers, or MLB should investigate. They take in something like $70 million a year before they sell a ticket, and their payroll is $22 million. So they have to buy, and I think they will. But can this really continue? That's a fun, pesky team. But it's still being outscored for the year. They've committed the most errors in the league. And the starting pitching has a five-plus ERA. That's a tough formula to sustain for six months. Why is it that every sportswriter keeps saying the same thing. They can't sustain, they will fall back, they will come down to earth soon, they will sonn be in the bottom half of the league, etc etc... I have heard all these from writers the last few weeks. Also in ESPN's Power Rankings they have Philly, Mets, and Braves ahead of us in EVERY Power Ranking so far this year even though we have lead the division most of the season so far....
