We removed the player with the 20th worst wRC+ in baseball from the two hole for the 7th worst

You might not like Hanley personally, but he was phenomenal for us for 5 seasons. 

 

You claim predictability because C0L but you haven't predicted shit. 

 

You don't get it. I literally am sick right now.

Even still, it's not like he left the marlins and was good. He's adjusted and shown progress. Conclusion, C0L denied. 

 

Considering he didn't even develop the splitter, which has been a beutiful compliment to his 99mph fastball, until after the marlins, I say this should be a COL CONFIRMED case

You think the marlins culture prevented him from learning a splitter? It's not as if he went from shit to star, either. He went from good on a bad team to a little better by progressing as one would expect a young pitcher to do. C0L denied. 

 

The marlins culture prevented from learning a splitter in that they never even thought to teach him one. Same thing happened with disco who learned a new & effective change up when he left miami. That is the definition of a culture of losing. C0L CONFIRMED

COL confirmed. Everyone who has the name Nate has sucked for the Marlins. Also COL if your name is nate and didn't make the Marlins then you really are a loser.

I'm going too say that it's mostly some players take to heart their failures when they sign somewhere and get released, traded, etc. before their contract is up and work that much harder to improve on their faults and thus succeed elsewhere after they move on.  Just understanding basic human nature (most athletes are highly competitive) , I can comfortably say that it's likely well over 50% of players have this reaction regardless of which team they played for previously.  Sometimes that drive to succeed to make amends for their failures elsewhere will push them on to have great seasons (comparatively speaking) after they move on to their next club.  There's a reason why many of us will say "he doesn't look like the same player as he was here......".  It's because they aren't as they've worked hard as correcting the mistakes they were making while playing for the Marlins, or any other team. 

 

Our "curse" is that we've seemingly always been saddled with shitty ownership and haven't had a competent front office since the Dombrowski days.  It starts there and ends there.

Man crazy to think how lucky we were with that first front office led by Dombrowski. Or maybe I'm wrong and it was garbage at the time but looking back and thinking we had Dombrowski as GM just seems like it was a good thing. Then again, I can't remember player transactions from then as well as I do now so what do I know?

Subconsciously I'm upset with the team because of the ownership. It really is a Mickey Mouse run franchise
