Why the Marlins will NEVER be good again

Recommended Posts

Quote

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.

Quote

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.

Quote

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.

Quote

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.”

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

I don't think they've had enough chances to prove that they're as bad as the last one.

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

the article reads like a message board post almost - and that's an insult to many of the regulars who post here.

The title itself is misleading because the article never really says anything about NEVER being able to compete again - it just says MLB needs to reevaluate the situation in Miami and force the Marlins hand (but doesn't really offer any solutions/suggestions on HOW).  Again, it's pretty much a message board post posing as an article.

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.

Just did a god awful job of telling the Marlin fans.

😆

Better hope one of the group of players received back for Yelich pans out OR that deal will be worse than both of those two!
