The Keep JT Realmuto Thread

Recommended Posts

And I’m not just posting this because he’s swinging the bat well right now.

Offer JT Realmuto a nice extension and build around a good player. He’s perhaps the closest thing to a 5-tool catcher in the big leagues.

Lets not trade him for more prospects who are going to strike out 40% of the time.

Let’s all start a movement on the Marlins “Dimelo Miami” page to make sure this team doesn’t trade JT Realmuto, a top 5 catcher in his prime. 

Lets see if this ownership truly cares about what the fans think.

I agree 100%. Lets send a secret email to the diamond club....It goes without saying that marlins man will not be CC’d.

He'll somehow get the email anyways and will then post it on social media and complain that you left him out.

The question with Realmuto is how much does the front office want to build around him? I feel like so far it's been a balancing act. He requested a trade and they did entertain offers for him so I don't think they see him as untouchable... yet they never did trade him so maybe they do prefer to keep him if possible. Time will tell. I think at least starting by offering an extension is the way to go... with that said, I don't see them doing that for some time. May not be for another year that they think about offering him anything.

I don’t know why they don’t do it.

Also, if you look at the blueprint they’re trying to follow of championship teams that built from the ground up, they all had a guy they committed to before they reached the point of being great teams. The Astros gave Altuve an extension, the Cubs did it with Rizzo, the Royals committed to Salvador Perez. Etc. Even now, with a team like the Braves who have gotten a lot better, they built around Freddie Freeman.

At some point, you have to keep some players. JT Realmuto is a keeper for many reasons. A case could’ve been made for Yelich, but maybe more so for Realmuto considering he’s a catcher. It’s incredibly difficult to find a catcher to build around. We would know that considering all the bad catchers we had in this franchise post-Pudge/before Realmuto arrived.

I think Yelich and Realmuto were the ones to build around. I don’t give a shit that he requested a trade. He was just butthurt that they traded a couple guys but he would have been over it. trading him for top talent would have been fine but honestly this package sucked. They rushed into trading him to the first team that didn’t offer peanuts. Brinson has a terrible approach at the plate and a terribly long swing. Yelich is a proven all star outfielder and in my opinion warranted a Robles/acuna type talent. If you don’t get that, keep him. Just like they did with JT.

they got a great deal for yelich, and brinson will be fine. Diaz and Harrison will be studs, and Yamamoto has a chance to be a rotation arm or bullpen arm.

Realmuto doesn’t want to play baseball for Miami anymore.  A couple of fun wins and losing 17 games this month (and April isn’t gone yet) didn’t change his mindset that he made clear to the media after the firesale. 

 

He’s just playing nice now with his comments (likely at his agents request).  

And I think your view on Brinson and his early results is very short sighted. He should have never been brought up this soon.  That’s all on Jeter and his band of boobs.

While I think Miami ultimately will win the Yelich trade, this is a ridiculously optimistic statement even coming from you.
