pretend this is the post-game thread.

 

I think I heard we've won 9 in a row 4 or 5 times before, but we've never won 10 straight.

 

 

yep, 9 is our franchise record, we have never hit double digit winning streak before. Hey this season has been full of history making moments, lets set the record, and it would be even better to see Cantu hit #30 on the same day

ABSOLUTELY AGREE! This has been a very UNEXPECTED but, VERY SUCCESSFUL season! Lets hope Loria does NOT do what we are all expecting----dump some players rather then paying them.Because, if he keeps doing that, he will have a new, very beautiful and, VERY EMPTY retractable roof stadium! Its time to build a franchise WITH that new stadium!

To be honest, I don't expect that at all.

 

Loria loves championships, and this team looks like it is close. He's show the willingness to pay if he felt it would lead him some where.

What if you can improve the team by trading away players? Just because fans like a player and the front office gets rid if them, doesn't make it a bad move. Fans need to be fans of the Florida Marlins and not individual players. As long as they are a competitive ball club, it shouldn't matter who comes and goes.

U do not get what he's talking about, Loria is known to build up his players to their highest point, and then trade them for more prospects and start the rebuilding process again. If he keeps on doing that, he should expect an empty stadium. He needs to secure some of these players for a while, turn them into household names, we have a competitive team, we understand that, we can get rid of some pieces and add some better pieces, but we do not want to see this entire team traded off and bring up every minor leaguer and start another rebuilding project

I wouldn't mind if he dumped Hermida. Same with Hammer, but I do like Hammer much more, there's just something to be said about a player's ability to stay healthy. And as much as I like Jacobs, I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up going too. But who knows - after this year Jake will only have had one good season, and that even with many flaws, so he may not cost too much to keep and they may just try to keep this IF together.

 

All that said, I agree with how great it is to have clinched at minimum 500. After all the low expectations when the season started, its just amazing how this team has performed. Even if we don't make the playoffs, its been a great ride, and exciting to disprove the naysayers.

Hey, I've ALWAYS preached this, so I'm with you. But at this stage in the life of the franchise, given the poor job the marketing department has done to develop the brand, you've gotta do anything to create revenue, even if that means advertising individuals. I'm hopeful that around the opening of the new park and new team colors and uniforms, etc. that they will take a more team-first approach to their marketing. I've always wanted to see them use no names on the back of their jerseys for home games. When the new uniforms are released, people are gonna wanna buy new jerseys anyway.

The current front office has only traded traded away most of the star players once. And they have gotten a ton of talent in return. If the fanbase is too stupid to understand and appreciate how this front office is keeping this team competitive, then there's simply nothing they can do about that. The front office is not about shelling out mega contracts to guys who are mediocre. That's the way it should be. Its about winning and making smart moves, not popular moves.

That's about it. Magnus is right on the money.
