I was excited about two to three potential Hall of Fame careers and moments those players provided. 

I wanted to see them get to the postseason

You know what this sounds like? 

Imagine a Red Sox fan who didn't like the 2004 playoff team because the team had already traded away Nomar.

Or maybe a Cubs fan who didn't like the 2016 team because it didn't have Starlin Castro anymore.

Or an Astros fan who didn't like their rebuild because it was done without Carlos Lee.

That's what you sound like. 

You don't like the 2021 Marlins because they don't have Stanton and Yelich.

I never said I didn't like them, that has a negative connotation that brings the idea that I dislike the team. I'm indifferent, which might be worse....but doesn't mean I won't eventually care one day again like I used to.

2004 Red Sox had built up a contender and took years to get past the Yankees, they traded one face of the franchise for a ring, they ended up with 2 or more depending how you want to look at it.

The 2016 Cubs built a winner from the ground up and had to move Starlin to start that. I'm sure that was fun, but they didnt have what we had player wise.

The Astros tore it down and alienated a big part of their fanbase and somehow ended up with a disgraced front office and players.

However, all of those teams and examples were just one player and none off a MVP season, cheap contract or premium position.

We traded the Reigning MVP, the next MVP and probably the top C in the game. Nevermind an all star in Ozuna and a former batting champion in gordon.

Look. Youre entitled to your opinion and to feel like I should be excited. I just don't see a reason to be right now. Maybe come July or August I'll get more enamored with the team, maybe someone will step up and wow me. Right now the only thing I can enjoy watching is all these arm develop and hope we see Bleday and Conine one of these days.

"It isn’t clear when or to what extent the new TV deal will affect the Marlins’ payroll. Importantly, there is also no indication of the specific payment breakdown. TV rights deals are often backloaded. It wouldn’t be surprising if that’s the case here"

Just don't kill the mood.

It kinda doesn't matter how the deal is structured. Just by getting this new deal there's a significant increase in funds that can be used for payroll.

Key word there is "can".

 

Hopefully that will be changed to "will".

the new Tv deal could almost pay for the entire team payroll this season 

It probably isn't an even 50M+ every year (it likely stair steps), but in theory, yes.

Seven years is good! If we end up getting some success in those years, could end up with a much larger deal right after.

Or if the Rays end up leaving the market we end up being the only programing available in state baseball wise.

They most likely become the Expos again if they go back to Montreal, yeah?

Nah, they have "equity" in the Rays name, and they want to sell merchandise lol. Think of th eWashington "Senators".

Full time, yeah, I can't see how they wouldn't revert to the Expos.

 

I still don't see that ridiculous split plan working at all - they can't get one city to build them a park, but they want 2 to build them 2 parks now?
