VVM and Connor Scott

Recommended Posts

After rough starts to the season, both of these top prospects are on fire. VVM is hitting .333 in his last 10 games. He has a 6 game hitting streak with multiple hits in 5 of those games. Scott is doing even better. He has hit at a .395 clip over the last 10 and has a 6 game hitting streak with multiple hits in all 6 and 7 multi hit games in his last 8.

I still continue to hear fans and read articles saying the Marlins rebuild is a failure because the MLB team is in last place. 

It's like nobody understands the plan and the process even though ownership has repeatedly explained it and even though other teams have successfully done the same thing. 

I guess the Marlins will never be on the right path until the final out of our next world series win. Maybe not even then honestly as we can win it all and then I know will be bombarded with "ok now comes the fire sale."

You don't understand. The Marlins were just #2PitchersAway from being a world series contender before the fire sale. This season proves it since they now have the 7th best starting rotation per ERA*. Without the trades the team would have contended since Richards, Lopez, were in the system and would have been those 2 pitchers^. The offense was clearly going to put up the same numbers they put up in 2017 when they were 5th in the NL in runs scored+.

 

*Ignore the bullpen

^Ignore the fact that without Alcantara and Smith and considering the injuries the Marlins would have had to rely on Straily and Chen (and they are both having Cy Young worthy seasons!) in the rotation plus others who would not even made the club this year.

+Ignore the fact that the same offense was 13th in the NL the year before (Just the NL which was been the weaker league offensively.) and that Gordon, Ozuna, and Stanton regressed, and that Yelich probably would not have put up an MVP caliber season considering his career home/road splits and that his launch angle would not have done shit at Marlins park thus leading to many fewer homers.

 

Bottom line, the Marlins would have won a World Series last year and this year if it was not for #CheapJeter and #FuckJeter.

I mean I know you're being funny but it's not the complaints about what they've done in the past now... it's the complaints about present day that dumbfound me.

Basically this...

Jeter is a failure and the Marlins will never be good again because they're in last place in July of 2019 and no last place team has ever improved even the slightest bit and this current team is the team they'll have for the remainder of time and there are no good players coming up down the line and the Marlins haven't drafted any players and haven't signed any international free agents so this is the way they'll be forever.

VVM has a .579 OPS in 337 plate attempts.  Hopefully his fire streak continues for the remainder of the season.
