The team will get better after FuckJeter sells the team to Scott Boras because Boras will sign all of the free agents and then the Marlins will have a $6 billion payroll and still be two pitchers away but they'll have a winning record they will be 82-80 instead of this FuckJeter Chip Bowers team that will go 30-132 worst team in baseball history Jeter say Let's go Yankees

Boras went to college, so he's obviously smarter than Jeter. If Michael Caine's much less famous brother taught us anything, it is that.

 

By the way, that post just increased your Jeter fanaticism. Every subsequent post will do the same regardless of the content of the post. You have 11,091 posts so you must be one of Jeter's biggest fans.

Pack it in boys... I've heard it'll take 5 years, 10, 15, 20 years but this guy says the Marlins will never be good again. Some real cutting edge journalism here...

Gotta love how that guy wants Manfred to step in.  As if he didn't know the plan when the team was sold?

Exactly. Jeter told Manfred and all 29 other teams the plan, that's the thing. Ignorant people act like Jeter surprised everyone with this. He told them all he was going to tear the payroll down prior to them approving the new ownership group.

I hate when anyone recommends MLB and/or the commissioner stepping in to veto trades or signings or to force teams to make moves. It's ridiculous and will never happen. It's like being annoyed by something minor and threatening to call the police and the police is like "huh? so?"

I don't like this post.  I'm going to call the police.

It'd have to be something absurd and egregious for them to step in.  Like trading half the roster for $1 or something.

I don’t know if they’ll be good again, but this front office is about as bad as the last one.

 

In some ways, but they are also better in other areas. They spent in the international market and brought in the top guy available. Something Loria's crew should have done.

The biggest names acquired in trades to replace some of the aforementioned were Cameron Maybin – a journeyman with no notable accomplishments, Lewis Brinson – recently optioned to Triple-A, and Garrett Cooper – injury struggles and poor performance since being acquired.

 

Garrett Cooper was acquired for with Mike King. Despite the injuries to Cooper, this was one of the best trades made so far under this ownership since we also got K-leb Smith.

 

Some did pay off, however. Henderson Alvarez threw one of the franchises few no-hitters. Starlin Castro has been a necessary part of recent Miami Marlins teams and he gets to play every day...

 

...When the Derek Jeter conglomerate bought the team a few years ago, the most notable things that have happened under the regime are the trades of Stanton...

 

I guess the Stanton trade worked out because we got Starlin Castro, one of the trades that payed off.

 

All while the payroll continues to fluctuate at the bottom of the league. This season it is at $76.1 million, third-lowest of 2019.

 

The Rays have the lowest payroll in baseball and have 1/3 the payroll of the Giants. Clearly money isn't needed to build a winner and throwing more money at a sinking ship isn't gonna help win games.

 

How long until the Miami Marlins reach 81 wins again?

 

Yeah because when the Marlins were competitive enough to reach that plateau, Stanton said that the team was never in the playoff race after the month of May.

Until they trade Chris Paddack for Fernando Rodney and Luis Castillo for Dan Straily, they will never come close to how bad the previous group was.

 

Hopefully some day we are not looking back saying, “until they trade Christian Yelich for a 1 WAR second baseman and a mop up reliever, they will never come close to how bad the previous group was.”

So his two examples of guys who worked out with the Marlins are those two? Alvarez because he threw a no hitter even though he did nothing else of note here? Castro because he gets to play every day even though he hasn't been good enough to actually become the trade bait he was always intended to be? Number 1 this guy has low expectations for what counts as paying off... number 2 there are better examples of guys who actually did pay off here, those two aren't on the list.

Hey guys! We're doing just fine... read this...

 

The season is not so far along that, no matter where your team is, there isn’t a chance to recover. Only one team in baseball has zero percent playoff odds, according to Baseball Prospectus: the Orioles.

 

WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE
