    Stupid beyond comprehension.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Ricky Nolasco; RHP; $11.5 million
    Placido Polanco; 3B’ $2.75 million
    Adeiny Hechavarria; SS; $1.75 million
    Greg Dobbs; INF; $1.6 million
    Juan Pierre; OF; $1.6 million
    Jeff Mathis*; C; $1.5 million
    Chad Qualls; RHP; $1 million
    Jon Rauch; RHP; $1 million
    Ryan Webb; RHP; $975,000
    Miguel Olivo; C; $800,000
    Austin Kearns; 1B/LF; $700,000
    Casey Kotchman; 1B; $700,000
    Kevin Slowey; RHP; $700,000
    John Maine; RHP; $625,000
    Giancarlo Stanton; OF; $537,000
    Henderson Alvarez*; RHP; 507,900
    Steve Cishek; RHP; $505,000
    Chris Coghlan; OF; $503,500
    Nate Eovaldi*; RHP; $502,000
    Chris Valaika; INF; $495,000
    Justin Ruggiano; CF; $494,500
    Mike Dunn; LHP; $492,500
    Logan Morrison*; 1B; $491,500
    Rob Brantly; C; $490,000
    Jose Ceda*; RHP; $490,000
    Jose Fernandez; RHP; $490,000
    Wade LeBlanc; LHP; $490,000
    Joe Mahoney*; 1B; $490,000
    A.J. Ramos; RHP; $490,000
    Alex Sanabia; RHP; $490,000
    Alfredo Silverio*; OF; $490,000

    "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."

    It only took 5 at-bats for Coghlan to lose his starting spot. Impressive.

    It's OK - at this rate you only have to watch the 3rd game of every series for some offense from this club.

    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.

    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.
