Fangraphs: The Marlins could be tanking the right way

That's not a counterpoint, it is support for the story.

 

 

 

Wrong

 

The story says the Marlins are doing the rebuild right.

 

The counterpoint says we have no Top 100 prospects after trading Ozuna, Gordon and Stanton.

 

I can’t believe I had to explain that.

Same goes for anyone who thinks a rebuild is going well when a team that no longer has Ozuna, Gordon and the NL MVP has zero prospects that crack the top  100 in baseball.  

 

I’m not suggesting the off season thus far should have yielded 5 Top 100 prospects. 

 

But NONE????

Ugh. I think you guys need to trust the scouting here. The prospects we got could be described as raw. Top 100 guys tend to be almost completely polished players. If you actually look at the guys we got, there are a few guys that I really like. I'm not saying they will become the best team in baseball next year. I am saying it is possible for some of the players to turn into good to even very good major league talent. I agree with this article, and we should continue to try to convert current value into future value. The best way to do that is to move Realmuto, Yelich, Bour, and anyone else with some value.

 

Also Does anyone else remember the Cabrera trade to the Tigers? We lost that trade, and we got 2 top 50 prospects. I don't care what our organization is ranked this year.

Ozuna was ranked as a top 100 prospect once, after the 2012 season. This came after his 5th season in the minors. Marisnick was ranked #64 overall ahead of him.

 

Realmuto was ranked as a top 100 prospect once, after the 2014 season. This came after his 4th full season in the minors. Kolek was ranked #52 overall ahead of him.

 

You never know.

 

And yes, who knows if the new guys work out. You would think after the numerous prospect trades the Marlins have made the last decade that people would understand it is going to take a year or two to see how guys pan out.

fish20 you were wrong, just admit it. 

 

i literally just posted the 2 posts they are talking about which clearly state that I think if we traded every asset we would have a top farm system.  I still believe that. Between Yelich, JT, Straily, Bour, Castro, Urena, Barraclough, Prado, etc. we can get a ton of talent.

Yelich and JT are the only names in there capable of bringing back big-time prospects. You said "we will have one of the best farm systems in baseball." which is literally impossible now considering they have a system in the back-half still.

 

First off, way to ignore the fact that you flat out misquoted what i said and have now done it in multiple threads. More solid reading comprehension out of you.

 

Second, farm systems have more than big time prospects.  And straily also has a lot of value given his team control. Bour as well if he stays healthy in the first half.  Barraclough too at the deadline given how teams foolishly worship saves.  You dont have to get back a top 10 prospect in baseball to get a solid return for the other players.  Between all the guys we have, we could add 4-5 or so top 100 guys (on the low end) and another 10 or so good-average prospects for other guys.

good talk

 

There's absolutely no possibility that we will have one of the best farm teams in baseball. After failing to garner top prospects, whilst still in a nosedive firesale, even if the Marlins got great prospects at full value for their remaining players, the farm system would almost certainly fall short of "great" due to having no depth in its "greatness."
