Nice piece heading into the off-season.

 

Some interesting thought, such as Moran possibly skipping Jupiter and heading straight to Jax if he does well in the AFL. That would certainly be a huge step, and if that happens, he could be in Miami by July with results...

"If" most these players develop the Marlins could be sitting on a decent team by 2015/16. If the Marlins play it like Cleveland in the early 90's and sign a few through their first couple of years of free agency than there is no reason (other than Loria) of them having a nice five year run of being competitive.

Thanks for posting this.

 

 

I disagree with Mayo though. I feel less confident than he does, mostly because Loria has these obsession with players like Hechavarria and Solano that will end up sinking us. Does anyone remember when Bonifacio was the worst starter in baseball, and we had him for over half a season. We won 87 games that season and he might have been the reason why we couldn't get to 90.

Mayo is terrible when it comes to prospects. His Top 10 organizational prospects and top 100 lists at the beginning of the year were awful, and seemed completely random.

 

I do agree that Moran is probably on the fast track, barring any major setbacks.

Thats probably on Beinfest. I doubt Loria knows other milb systems that well

Agree. Most of these guys are under control until at least 2018.
