2013

The individual player threads are nice an all, but it is somewhat scattered when looking at the team as a whole. I think with the nature of the 2013 free agent options, a youth movement is inevitable.

 

The Youth Movement;

 

C: Brantley - the team will find out if he can do it

1B: Morrison - the team must find out if he can do it

2B: Bonifacio - almost by default

3B: Cox - They are going to give him a shot

SS: Reyes - one of the 2 rock solid pieces

LF: Mystery Date

CF: Ruggiano - love it or hate it, he is all we have

RF: Stanton - the other rock solid piece

SP: Johnson, Burhle, Eovaldi, Turner, Hand/Sanabia/LeBlanc

If 2013 will be a rebuilding year then they might as well trade Reyes too.

 

 

That makes no sense.

If 2013 is a rebuilding year, does it matter whether he's on the team in 2013? No.

 

In 2014-2017, will he be worth the the $86M he's due? Not likely at all.

 

You might as well try to trade him.

 

And because of that, he's probably more valuable to this team than he is on the trade market.

 

What you said probably makes more sense to say for someone like Josh Johnson, hence the reason why I'd like to trade Josh Johnson before next season starts.

He would be more valuable off the team and the team using those $21.5M per year on better players.

Trading Jose Reyes would surely get us to winning sooner...

 

It would surely help us win in 2014 and forward. You guys must think he's one of the greatest players in the game to be worth that kind on money.

 

I fail to see how you could prove that, exactly.

 

He's been the most valuable player in the game at his position over the past 3 years. It would go further than that, but I'm not including 2009 when he only played 36 games.

 

You could easily make the case that he's the best SS in the game and I don't see him regressing much in the near future barring injuries.

 

Say you trade him this offseason...

a) What are you getting back?

b) Who are you using the money on that "would surely help us win in 2014 and forward?"

Ew.

 

 

We traded some non ew, get used to some ew!

 

I think 3B and a starting rotation spot are Mystery Date's #2 and 3.

 

Next season might be pretty brutal, but then again we thought this season would be awesome, so we could all be totally wrong and 2003 next year! (or more likely 2006).

As I've said before, Eric Chavez on a 2 year deal is in my opinion our best option going into next season at 3B. LF can be filled with a free agent (hope sh*t sticks) kind of guy until Yelich is ready (which, best case scenario, makes him a June call up, but more likely a September call up).

i dont see the marlins going strong after outfielders in the offseason. with the potential call-ups of Yelich and Ozuna next september i dont think theyll sign a big name and stall their progress. i expect a 2 year contract or so for ruggiano to start next year and eventually become the #4 outfielder. bonifacio will probably start in CF.

 

i DO expect more pitching help (there are a lot of solid free agent pitchers, starters and relievers) and maybe a 3rd OR second baseman...not both.

 

i think eovaldi will start the year as a reliever. he has good raw stuff but lacks command/control...eats pitch counts like crazy right now.

 

this would mean either leblanc will be a starter or they sign a new starter. id prefer them sign one since leblanc has been great in the pen. and seeing ramos in the minors and his pro debut...i think they could have a solid bullpen next year with an average pitching staff if they make the right moves.

 

morrison at 1st is inevitable. hopefully it will benefit all aspects of his game.

 

2013 will be a throw away season

2014 should be a great young team..especially if jose fernandex pitches well enough to warrant an early promotion (id say early-mid 2014)

Why would they do that when I'm almost positive he's club controlled for years?
