This team is going to be laughingly bad next year

The attendance has no real reason to be lower than last year. Anyone who stuck around after those trades especially the Stanton one will be back.

I believe some diehard fans already gone after the DFA of Deets.

Anyone who stayed around after last off-season and left due to Dietrich is irrational and illogical. I assume those who said it were only joking.

Again. If they stayed with the team when Stanton, Yelich and others were traded, they aren't going anywhere. If/when JT is traded, you'll see a flood of people saying "that's it for me" but in reality, those people didn't go last year either. They just love to say this is it for me every time there's a trade.

The rotation is going to be interesting.  If Pablo Lopez, Caleb Smith, and Trevor Richards can build on what they did last year, the rotation might be decent.  Also, hopefully Urena can build on his second half and Dan Straily can rebound to his 2017 form.  I'd like to see more of Alcantara also.  Then there's Chen.  Lol

 

The offense will be terrible.  Maybe Brinson will figure some things out and hopefully Anderson can deliver more pop but other than that it's not good.  J T probably will and should be moved.  Hopefully at some point Harrison, Diaz and Mesa will he ready to contribute.  

 

I think we should be in line for about the same type of season as last year.  Just shy of 100 loses.

What’s the case for next year’s team being better than 2018 once Realmuto gets dealt? Not trying to be a Debbie downer, just wondering what the optimistic portion of the fanbase is thinking.

I don’t necessarily disagree with you.  But I’ll take a shot at your question: what’s the argument that it won’t be a worse season?

first it’s hard to say right now because we’re so far away on roster construction.  But here’s the things that would have to go right

1. Lots of luck in the rotation

  a. Urena pitches all year the way he did after the Acuna incident

   b. Caleb Smith returns healthy and shows his best stuff all year 

    c Chen figures out how to pitch on the road 

     d. Straily Stays healthy 

      e. Richards develops another pitch 

     f. Lopez or Alcantara have a massive year 

 

2. Marlins find a coupl reliable arms to not screw up leads 

3. Brinson plays the way we all hoped 

4. Anderson builds on his rookie year 

5. Garrett Cooper plays the way Anderson did last year. 

6. Marlins sign a veteran catcher that plays all year (Wilson Ramos or the like)

7. Get another bat at first.  CJ Cron was DFAd.  Maybe he can play first 

thats a ton to ask.  If all those things happen then maybe we win 65-70 games 

edit: forgot about Mesa.  He plays and makes contributions.

JT, Bour, and Deets gone for the whole year being replaced by Holiday, OBrien, and a prospect (?) is pretty rough. You're asking a lot for the rookies to make up that production. Don't necessarily disagree with Erick.

The team was going to be bad regardless. 90 loss bad or 110 loss bad, bad is bad.

I think anybody that understands the rebuild (or build) process can get past the loss # for a couple of years.  If you're a 90 loss team, you might as well be 110 - who cares.

If we're like the Mets, thinking we're competing for a WS, and end up a bottom dweller most of the season, that's a problem!  That's worth getting upset over.
