They tried and failed, this is one they should have tried harder for

There is no try. There is only do or do not.

Ownership support you should not.

Ok yeah Harang at that price is shockingly cheap but I mean why give any money to Harang for two years when you can give more money to Kazmir for like four years. 

I mean I know I'm answering ny own question/rant but not trying hard for Kazmir and then spending any money on Harang would be like...

"I need a car to get to work because my job is an hour away, but I don't wanna spend money on a car so I'll buy a bicycle instead."

Point is they're not fixing the problem and wasting money as well.

Aaron Harang? Please don't tell me that's real. and for two years ? Seriously?

How hard did they try for Kazmir? Why half ass on Kazmir and go balls deep on harang? That makes no sense. Kazmir is clearly better than Harang even the Marlins should understand that.

Hill:. We're thinking about putting together an offer for SCOTT Kazmir. 

Agent:  Well, I can tell you that he wants that fourth year, don't waste my time if you're only going to go three. 

Hill: Would he take $700 for two years?

Agent: Huh?  Is this a joke?

Hill: Ok, ok. Can you at least tell the press that we were a serious bidder?

Agent:. Uh.... No. 

Hill:. What about saying that there was mutual interest?

Agent.  No.  

Hill:. Well, do you happen to know any pitchers who WOULD take $700K for two years?

Agent:  I'm going to hang up now.

Remember when Jose was asked if we had a competitive team for 2016 and he gave that stupid negative sounding "no comment" response?

Today on MLB.com Tom Koehler was asked a similar question about whether or not our starting rotation as it stands now was good enough for 2016 and he said.... "You've got to look at it as we've got to go with what we have, we have a very talented group of guys who gained valuable experience last year."

Whether you consider that a truthful answer or not, THAT is how you answer that question with a positive spin without saying too much, without sounding negative or resentful, and without just saying "no comment."

And from the perspective of Cosart Conley Nicolino Urena and whichever other pitchers are potentially in the rotation, how do you think they feel when Jose refused to comment on them being any good? Wouldn't they respect Koehler more for calling them a very talented group?

Maybe JDF should learn some PR from TK.

Where is the actual source on the Harang? That sounds more like a joke that anything else. I am sure Marlins called Kazmir but because of injury that didnt even want to go 3 years. Hence they aren't a serious suitor, his price range is what the Marlins said they would spend though. Ian Kennedy is what is left in the Free Agent class that is both reasonable and good, anything else is overpriced and just bad.


Marlins seem poise to wait until January, since I read they will be going to see Lincecum and Lee pitch.
