Nobody should really be acting surprised. I expect several games like this in 2018. It's who we are at least until next year. It doesn't bug me either because it doesn't mean much if anything at all. This team is too young and inexperienced and untalented where they're not "young and inexperienced" to not have games like this one. The true test on them and on Mattingly is how they bounce back tomorrow and in the next few days.

Dillon Peters is not good. 

 

Too soon to give up on Peters.  He had a very good minor league career, and his stuff is decent.  Just have to give him the ball and let him figure things out in the Show.  That's what this season is for anyway.

Fair point although I think his stuff sucks.

I don’t think anyone is acting surprised in this thread.  

 

Well, maybe that they lost by 19 runs.  That’s quite a feat.  But, yeah, no one is acting surprised the Marlins are bad. 

 

Anyone surprised or frustrated by this loss is delusional. This team is horrible and it'll be horrible all year long.

Our "little league" product will skew the MLB numbers for sure this year because the 4 teams who play us 19 times will probably have higher win totals than they would if we fielded an MLB team. Just saying. It is interesting yet disturbing to witness.

So yeah, i'm here to spread negativity because again because i've been with the team since their inception and I feel i've earned the right to seriously bitch at them after all these years - plus i'm just one of those people who feel better after just getting it off my chest.  I have a strong feeling the Marlins will either be relo'd or contracted within the next 5-7 years.  What Jeter did to this team was to remove ALL the pieces worth coming to the park for - sorry, there's no top flight prospect on the current team, there's no stud blue chip prospect on the way.  There's literally nothing for the fans to show up for at all.  Hell, there's not even a dude who can top 30 homers this season and they'll probably be hard pressed to have 2 guys top 20 hr's all season long.  There's no flame thrower who can K 12+ on a given night....there's just nothing to watch.  It's the most vanilla collection of players I've ever seen on a team.  Some of you get all  excited over Rojas being given a fulltime job?  why?  because he can play good defense?  someone hold my beer so i can settle in on the off-chance that once every dozen games there might be one play he gets a chance to dazzle with in another 20-1 blowout.  Nah, be boxscore warriors people.  Jeter fucked this team over bad by being part of a group too fucking cheap/poor to be able to withstand a few seasons of monetary losses while they worked on the MOST important part of the team which was their reputation within the skeptical south florida fans.  They blew that chance from the get-go whether it was the firesale, the constant firing/rehiring circus with Conine, et al., and then childish sounding shit like "project wolverine" ffs.  Stanton said it best on his way out, it's always a circus down there and Jeter continues to keep up the antics with his shitshow that's worse than Loria's, as mind-numbingly difficult as that is to believe. They are NEVER going to get fans back in that park. I don't care if they miraculously field a 95 win team for a couple seasons in a row, fans are never going to come back at a rate required to  field a competitive team year in and year out.  If by some miracle the Marlins aren't relo'd or contracted the few remaining fans will now be waiting for the next ownership group to take over, just like we patiently waited for Loria's time to come for all those years. 

 

I hope I'm wrong, I hope i'm 100% wrong on all accounts and that somehow multiple players start taking it upon themselves to lead and they somehow accelerate their learning curve and buck the odds and develop into marketable stars. I hope that it happens soon and that by some miracle a buzz develops, that isn't a cloud of mosquitos, and even a paltry15k start showing up night after night.  I hope that Jeter and company realize their mistakes and actually INVEST some money into actual starting players in the next offseason so they don't lose 120 games again.  I hope I'm wrong.  I hope I'll have a reason to actually watch baseball again next year because being down to only watching one sport absolutely sucks.  I hope I'm wrong about everything they've done and I'm just too dense to see it.  I miss my team.
