This team is going to be laughingly bad next year

Recommended Posts

I know I was one of the skeptical ones with the idea that bringing up all the successful minor leaguers wouldn't necessarily translate to big league success right away but the Marlins are in a such a rut right now that they really should be bringing up at least one or two guys to inject some life into the team.

There are $5 beers but the rest of the options are the same as always if I'm not mistaken. 

Yeah, other food options at least are roughly the same ($12-15 range) aside from the few 3o5 items.

I'm not a beer drinker, so I don't know enough to comment on them.

I wish we had specific numbers on weekday attendance because I've always thought that even if the team is consistently great and in contention how many sell out crowds can this team, or many others for that matter, get on Monday-Thursday?

I myself am a huge Marlins fan but I still don't think I'd go to more weekday games than now just because the team is good. I'd go to more games on the weekends and make my the weekday games must watch TV but actually going? 

That'd be a lot of numbers to sort through.

I agree though - I mean, I might be more inclined to go to a game in the week because of my job's relative proximity to the park (vs. FTL), but I wouldn't get to every game....I mean unless I had a ticket plan or something, it gets expensive!

The problem is there aren’t really any bats ready to come up. Monte and Isan are the closest, but they aren’t ready. They need AT LEAST another month or so in AAA before that even becomes a thought. 

If anything, I think this highlights the need to draft a couple of college bats this year that can move through the system quickly.

 I wouldn't mind seeing some of the minor league players, but instead of bringing them up, just start broadcasting the minor league games instead of the major league (term used loosely) Marlins.  Watching the fish will be next to impossible as this continues, even for the most devoted fans.

I already stopped watching actually.

I was about to turn the game on last night (late), and I got the notification they went down by a run, and I didn't bother turning it on.

It's ok guys, we've already reached our lowest point. It's only up from here.

It's so bad but Mattingly has the answer for Brinson.  Quoted as saying that they are working with him to "help him see the ball better". Note to Don, Brinson is seeing the ball just fine, try working with him to help him HIT the ball better.

Here's an article on how bad we are.  TLDR - we're terrible and on pace to be historically bad.

 

They go into a lot more detail and include a lot more references, but here are a couple notable points:

-On pace to score 409 runs.   The record for fewest is 463.

-On pace for 34 wins.

-The defense sucks (what a surprise since they dumped Perry Hill).  We're 21st in fielding percentage after being in the top 10 from '15-'18.

-Shifting is killing us - opponents are hitting .327 against the shift.
