Just loves the way he extends the plate....
Sorry to high jack this thread but Mainge, I tried to send you a PM but it says you're in box is full. Clean it up then message me.
Way to interrupt this deep baseball talk, Ray.
Jose Fernandez is still good.
Yelich, Lomo, and Stanton aren't too bad either.
Jose is the man:
Yeah that Tulo/Jose Fernandez GIF is great. The reactions on both guys is priceless.
That is all.
Hey awesome insight and some real hard hitting analysis. Thanks for sharing.
Anyone see LoMos bomb last last night? Bomb.
Also, good to see Cogs back and hitting well.
Jose since June 1st has been unreal.
Jose with a blast for his first majors HR, stares at it for a couple of seconds and Braves get their panties all up in a bunch and start pouting. Nevermind that Gattis pimped his own HR before and that coward Chris Johnson was jawing at the rook all day. Good thing he showed just what a tough guy he was when he ran to the plate and got behind the ump before starting to punch his chest and spew obscenities.
ESPN: Loria making "all" decisions for the Marlins.... Surprising? Not Surprising? Who knows.
Hope they trade Fernandez and Stanton to a contender or hell perhaps the Yankees. Get paid what they deserve without the hassle and assbackwards ownership to deal with.
Redmond and the organization was quick to throw their own guy under the bus for having done well and standing up to tough guy Johnson.
Not shocked Loria is running that ponzi scheme of an organization like Mao. At all. Wouldn't be shocked if the public scorning delivered by Redmond was scripted by the Fuhrer Loria himself.

Trust me i would love both on the Yankees but the Yankees dont have the prospects to land either of them nm both. Of course Loria is a joke but he is friends with Selig so nothing will be done.
Redmond's reaction to the Braves vs Jose deal was beyond infuriating. Way to come out as a no balls, no personality sheep and throw just about the only good thing going for this team straight under the bus. Nevermind Jose probably saved Redmond's job, because without him, Marlins very likely set the losing record. Now he can keep his job because he showed what a good little doggy he is to the master handler Loria.
Just when you think you see everything in baseball Suyzn, Miami gets a walk off no hitter....
isn't baseball Aaaaaaaa-mazing?
All kidding aside, that was pretty cool.....I bet whoever threw 50 bucks down on a no hitter on game 162 is rich right now.
Really like the Salty signing. These are the kind of deals we need to be making.
I just have to wonder, what scared off teams from offering him more? I mean, his numbers would suggest more of a 4 year 40 million dollar deal. But yet 3 for 21 was the highest? Is he healthy?
If he is, for that price I'm pissed off Rays didn't get in on the talks with him.
Yeah it's a fair signing for sure. I actually thought he'd get more in terms of years and dollars per.
Buster Olney speculated that there might be some kind of injury concern with him a week or so ago, who knows though unless teams saw his medicals. I wonder how much of the Sox backing off of him hurt his value too. Or perhaps his post season play hurt his value?
Wont have to worry about that in Miami!
All seriousness, good signing, local kid, he went to my rival high school (royal palm, i went to Wellington) Always remember reading about him in the PB Post in school. Glad to have him. Switch hitting catcher is a nice find!
He's pretty awful against LHP so hopefully he doesn't do much switch hitting and plays exclusively against RHP.
He's also bad at throwing to 3rd base so hopefully the Marlins never have a runner on 2nd this year.
So just let him catch with Jose Fernandez on the mound.
6"5 220, young kid.
Mainge, you like the move?
edit: from wiki
I dont think it is terrible as everybody in their mother knew Florida was dealing him....
At first I thought the return was a bit light but Morrison has had trouble staying on the field his whole career, I'm sure that didn't help his value.
Remember when peoplewere debating about trading Morrison for I believe it was Gio Gonzalez straight up?
Damn, like Ruggiano!
Yea I agree. The more I read about Capps, the more I understand it. Originally I thought marlins got robbed. Guy has a plus plus fastball.
At first I was wary as well, but Capps is just 23 with a monster fastball, and has impressive minor league numbers. Only 1 full big league season, too.
So I havent followed the offseason closely. What are we lookibg like next season?
The only bad thing about Jose Fernandez is that he won't be on the team in a few years.
You guys need to lock him up similar to what the Rays did with Longoria and Matt Moore.
Buy out his arbitration years and see if you can get a year or 2 adding after when he is supposedly to hit FA....
Only two months late but I didn't really like it. I understand why it was made and I don't really have a problem with Capps the player, but the positional value is way off. I would have rolled the dice on Lomo becoming a league average player over a potential high leverage reliever.
That being said, IF the Marlins FO does the right thing and platoons Garrett Jones and Jeff Baker at first base (a huge IF), then I'm totally fine with it. It's a case of the move sucking in a vacuum but it fitting in and making sense with the rest of the offseason.
