Why the Marlins will NEVER be good again

Considering we’ve been bad for the past 16 years, I would rather be a Nationals fan with expectations at the moment.

Still its fun to see the rest of the division burn being 4 games under .500 (not including the Marlins) despite each of those teams getting to play the Marlins on a regular basis.

Plus the Marlins are in this position because of half rebuilds which has perpetually left the team "1 or 2 players away." The Nationals had a rebuild where they lost over 100 games in 2008 and 2009. They used those losses to establish their current core which kept them relevant from 2012-present. We can only hope for that kind of success.

Spencer Torkelson could go #1 in the draft. 

 

++++ bat

Plays 1B

 

We really need to hit on the 2020 draft in a bad way.

"Bad" just meaning no playoffs in your case, I assume. Some years the team was decent to pretty good.

Wonder how many times, especially in the last 30 years, has a first baseman gone first overall.

If they pick the first baseman in 2019 that would probably not make a ton of sense, but the baseball draft is about drafting the best overall talent....

 

so ya.

The bad news is that the Marlins are actually 2 games worse then they were in 1998 after 35 games when the team lost 108 games. The good news (relatively) is that it is the same record as when they only lost 100 in 2013 and fangraphs projects that that the Marlins will only be 1 game worse then 2013 at 61-101. And it looks very good for the 2020 draft order so far. Besides would you rather be a Marlins fan who expected to be this bad or a Nationals fan who is seeing their team crumble with great expectations?:

The Nats have been crumbling with expectations for years now.
