Jose Fernandez made the rotation .
Stupid beyond comprehension.
I refuse to even realize the existence of this **** hole of a team until we get a knew owner. Peace
Yup makes zero sense, just means he'll be traded to another team a year quicker I guess....
By the way not sure if this stat is correct or not, so if it's not my bad, but the last player to make the jump from A ball to the MLB and have any immediate success was Dwight Gooden in 1984, so almost 30 years ago.
If he manages to kick *** this season, is it possible the Marlins sign him to a deal similar to Matt Moore? Maybe that's why they don't mind calling him up.
Everything around and about this team is stupid beyond comprehension.
I was big into the season last year even when we were losing horrendously. This year, I'm not excited at all.
One of my close friends worked with Coghlan the entire off season. He promised me even before spring training started he was going to rake this year. Said he totally reworked his swing. He raked in spring and now he's starting. Hope he does big things again for y'all.
Sure anything is possible but there's more risk than reward right now. If he's great then the Marlins can't/won't send him down, thus losing an extra year of service time. If they brought him up and he's not ready and gets shelled who knows what it does to his confidence in the future. I just don't think it makes sense for a team like the Marlins, or any team who can't realistically contend this year especially for those "small market" teams where extra service time/years are huge.
Service time won't matter if they extend him.
Good luck with that extension.....
I've been saying for years that his problem is entirely mechanical. He flies open and pulls off the ball.
Interested in seeing how he looks.
I'm here for the gang bang?
The Marlins have an Opening Day, on-field payroll of just $36.1MM, about $58MM less than in 2012, Juan Rodriguez of the Sun-Sentinel notes. That the Marlins' team is dramatically less expensive than it was at this point last year is hardly news, but it's still startling to see a list of the team's players and their salaries, as Rodriguez provides here. After Ricky Nolasco at $11.5MM, the next-highest-paid Marlin is Placido Polanco, who will make $2.75MM.

I forgot Nolasco was making 11 mil this year.
Is Loria dead yet?
Kinda like asking if they cured cancer yet.
I can't get invested in the marlins whats the point of liking a player they will just get rid of him next year
Sounds like generationally speaking, its about time......looking forward to it! Wouldnt shock me to see him hold his own.
Wouldn't shock me either but it's still stupid.
Good start, boys.
Let's not pitch to Harper, yea

One game in and he has the same swing. Still pulling off the ball.
At least we weren't no-hit.
Only lost by 2. There's one moral victory.
"Technically, he's ready to pitch in the big leagues right now," said Orlando Chinea, the man most responsible for shaping Fernandez into the future ace many predict. "We worked on the psychological part of the game, not letting his emotions get away from him, never reacting. The whole time thought and analysis, thought and analysis. He's a cold-blooded pitcher because I educated him not to react, but to think."
Nobody died so there's that.
LOL. I just texted him this..Ill let you know his reply..
It only took 5 at-bats for Coghlan to lose his starting spot. Impressive.
Figures they wait until I have a class to score the first run of the season.
It's OK - at this rate you only have to watch the 3rd game of every series for some offense from this club.
One run! Woo! Improvement!
This is going to be the most painful season in years.
Rob Brantly is looking like a solid catcher so there's that.
Starting pitching looks decent. Lucky so far but maybe they can perform well over the course of this season.
It's a shame we only get to play the Mets 18 times.
Fernandez was filthy today
What did he say?
He's about a week away from spending the summer in New Orleans.
Sticking with my "generation" statement....he is just different it seems....will be fun to watch every 5 days. Franchise record for K's for initial start...not a bad way to say hello!
Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun-Sentinel notes Fernandez is just the seventh starter under the age of 21 to record at least eight strikeouts in his MLB debut since 1916 and only the fourth pitcher in the past 13 years to record six or more strikeouts in his debut joining Oliver Perez, Clayton Kershaw, and teammate Jacob Turner. He became the 22nd pitcher since 2000 to strike out at least eight batters in his major league debut. Matt Harvey (11) and Collin McHugh (nine) of the Mets were the only two to do it last year.
