i saw the red sox thread so i thought why not make a marlins one:goof:
is there any of us left? :lol:
projected starting lineup-
c- josh willingham
1b- mike jacobs
2b- pokey reese
ss- hanley remirez
3b- miguel cabrera
rf- jeremy hermida
cf- eric reed
lf- chris aguila

but then again most of them are basically rookies and haven't been in the mlb to prove themselves so who knows what the lineup will be after spring training

looking forward to a 100+ loss season:rolleyes: edit: sept 18th 2006: boy was i wrong<<!

With the players the Marlins got this offseason I wouldn't be surprised if they won another World Series Title by 2009. After all the Marlins win 1 WS every 5 to 7 years.

Same here. Eventhough I'm a big time Red Sox fan, I'm an unofficial Marlins fan. I hope they stay in FL and get a new stadium. They have some serious talent and will be a force in a few years.

The offense isn't going to be the problem. Don't let last season's average stats blind you; this offense would score 2 runs every day for a week and explode for 12 on Sunday. They couldn't hit late in games, they couldn't hit with RISP, and they virtually all underperformed except for Cabrera, Delgado, and Encarnacion.

Cabrera is back and is likely to absolutely explode this season. And before you use the whole protection argument, it hasn't stopped Bonds from setting records and it never stopped guys like Richie Sexson in Milwaukee from producing big numbers. Not only that, but he will have protection, namely in early Rookie of the Year candidate Jeremy Hermida, a right fielder replacing Encarnacion who is the second- or third-best prospect in all of baseball (Delmon Young, Brandon Wood, Francisco Liriano are probably the only ones who measure up). Then there's Mike Jacobs, who was the Eastern League MVP last year and did hit 11 homers in 100 ABs, albeit against diluted pitching. He can still hit .280-25-90, which is plenty good. Josh Willingham has hit at every level in the pros except for the majors, where he will be getting his first chance. In AAA last season, an a broken forearm incurred in BP in TB with the big club sat him from July to September, but he still hit .324-19-54-.455 (OBP) in just 219 ABs. That's a very solid 2-3-4-5 or 3-4-5-6. The rest of the lineup is very iffy, but it would be helped tremendously by the acquisition of a leadoff hitter that can get on base, something the Marlins sorely lack right now. The ballyhooed acquisition of Joey Gathright would help in a big way. There are still questions about left, center, and second, as long as Ham is catching (he could end up playing LF if Miguel Olivo, who was very solid offensively in San Diego last year after a putrid experience in Seattle), with light-hitting Chris Aguila and Eric Reed and Rule V pickup Dan Uggla slotted to play those positions. The SS position will belong to either super-prospect Hanley Ramirez or Robert Andino, another young player with a slick glove and a weak stick, and Pokey Reese will also show up in the lineup fairly regularly at one of the middle infield positions. Of the quartet, Uggla has the most pop - he hit .297-21-87-.378 last year in the pitching-rich Southern League, very strong for a 2B.

I'm not going to go into the pitching here because there's way too much to talk about for one post, but while the Fish have their growing pains to experience, they will have a lot of talent on the field in 2006. It's only getting better from here, of course, and I don't consider the dismantling of a consecutive 83-win team that drew 21,000 a night to be the huge deal that 1998 was, at least on the field. Emotionally it was very tough, but emotions don't win World Series; they win 3rd place.

The facial hair thing has nothing to do with stubble and everything to do with showing who's the boss. As you will hopefully read in my next column, which needs to be approved (hint hint, admins! Step up, new guys! Posted it a whole 4 minutes ago!), it's worth it to let the players know who has control. As they mature and form cohesion, it will probably be relaxed to allow for goatees and such. But it's a matter of professionalism. Just like you wouldn't show up to the office with a two-day scruff, it's not professional to show up to the park that way.

Okay but the office isn't entertainment. Baseball is. This is complete BS. If I was on the Marlins, I'd be pretty upset about this. Just let me play my game, and let me look how I want to look.

Also...If its about showing them who's boss. Why not do something like be at TC on time or you will be held out of playing that day or something? This is rediculous...

Sorry to break the bad news, but it needs to be said because the start of spring training brings an overdose of blind optimism that just might cause you to believe these Florida Marlins will be exciting and interesting and maybe even a pleasant surprise in 2006.

This is exactly what the owner of the team wanted though. He had a huge fire sale and got back a lot of good young players. So by the time they're ready for the big leagues/playing to their potential (in about 5 years maximum) the Marlins will have a new stadium somewhere in America so the owner could sell out every game and win yet another World Series. Thus make a ton of money on revenues.

Seriously watch out of the Marlins in 5 years, especially if they get a new stadium. They'll be full of talent and making a ton of money they might be the Braves of the 2010's (ala winning the East every year).

what are your projected starting lineup/ rotation's

RWhitney014
02-26-2006, 08:27 PM
1) Joey Gathright, CF
2) Pokey Reese, SS
3) Jeremy Hermida, RF
4) Miguel Cabrera, 3B
5) Mike Jacobs, 1B
6) Josh Willingham, LF
7) Miguel Olivo, C
8) Dan Uggla, 2B

I'd like to see Ham become a good enough C to play there, because he'd instantly be one of the top 5 offensive catchers in the league, but I don't see it happening as of now. Uggla gets his shot, Hanley starts in the minors for about 3 months, gets called up around the AS Break.

1) Dontrelle Willis, LHP
2) Brian Moehler, RHP
3) Jason Vargas, LHP
4) Josh Johnson, RHP
5) Yusmeiro Petit, RHP

Scott Olsen takes Petit's place if we don't get Gathright/somehow don't need him to acquire Gathright, which would be ideal.

Stokes isn't starting. Stokes isn't going to be on the major league roster. He has injury problems, missed virtually all of last year, and is roadblocked by a guy who was the MVP of his league last year, who hit 11 homers in 100 MLB ABs, and who is only 2 years older than him. Best-case scenario for Stokes and the Marlins is that he has a healthy and a productive year, because if Jakes pans out like we hope, a power-hitting 24 year-old 1B could draw some attention in the trade market.

Marlins release AWOL infielder Reese


Second baseman Pokey Reese's contract was terminated Sunday by the Florida Marlins, who said they were disappointed not to receive an explanation regarding his abrupt departure from spring training.

Reese went home following a workout Wednesday without notifying the Marlins. They later heard twice from his agent, but not directly from Reese, general manager Larry Beinfest said.

Nah, he probably wasn't going to start, especially if Hanley Ramirez proves he can stick in MLB. Girardi has been impressed by Uggla at 2B, so he looks to be getting the nod there. Reese was going to be a nice veteran influence on all the young MIFs, though, so they're going to need to replace him somehow. There will be plenty of cuts around Opening Day, and this team is definitely making a trade to acquire their CF/leadoff hitter before then. I have a very strong hunch on that one.

Let me preface this by saying that I am a huge Marlins fan and former season ticket holder. Myself and 3 of my coworkers have been splitting 2 seats since the 96 season. This year, 2 decided not to renew which left me and someone else. Price was too high for 2 peple so we didnt renew.

Judging by the looks of this lineup, the 2006 Marlins run total will be equal to or slightly higher than Miguel Cabrera's RBI total.

I love baseball and it has to get really bad for me not to watch. I do agree with you in that they are talented and very young. Should either be really exciting or very disapponting. I just really hate the fact that we find ourselves in this predicament every 5 years. It's tough being a fan this way. No wonder they can't draw people.

It's time we got a serious owner with deep pockets who can build us a domed stadium. That's the ONLY way MLB will survie in south florida.

I know what you mean about the shakeups every 5 years, I was 7 when I started watching baseball in 97 and we won the world series, after that year I didnt totally understand where all the players went I was to young to really understand trades, free agency and such, but I followed the team through all our bad years, and its frustrating, but I love our team so I'll always support them somehow and hope they dont leave Florida

Change in ownership would be good, and we NEED a new stadium soon, sometimes I wonder if our ownership now wants us out of florida

Oh well this is a young team and can look at this two ways

1- We played them tough, they are the defending national league champs, and they needed a passed ball to beat us, we can be for real

2- We cant even score a run....we suck

How they decide to take this lose will shape the rest of the season

It almost hurts me watching Preston Wilson on other teams

When he was a Marlin Id go to games and Id always sit in center field right behind him, and every game I was at he would toss me a ball or two, in between innings or when he caught the last out, It was so cool, he was my favorite player and he knew it

Anyway back to today

Ambercrombie is coming to bat, he reminds me of the kind of player Preston was for us

the Marlins have a pretty decent team, I think they won't suck as much as some experst think. and from everything I've seen they think the Marlins will lose 100+ games.

they have some pretty good hitters, they are young which is probably why they didn't do anything last night but they are good hitters. the whole season will really depend upon the pitching, Willis is good but outside of him we have a bunch of youngsters who could get rattled alot this season

Ive been saying this for months now and last night proved it to me


There going to give it all they have and they are talented, their mind set will determine how far they can go

From what ive seen so far I really like Hanley Ramirez, if he keeps this up he will be a very good player, and from what ive heard he can fly speed wise

agreed....we could have easily be 11-4 or something like that....we wont loose 100 games like everybody say we are...we have a VERY talented roster and once Scotty and Brian and Justin could settle down we would rock the house.....


by the way can anyone explain why we are caroselling our outfielders everygame instead of having Willingham-Abercrombie-Aguilla as full time.

Who's Justin? I'm guessing you're referring to Jason Vargas. And don't count on Moehler rocking the house. Count on him eating innings hopefully until about June before one of the group of Nolasco, Johnson, Sanchez, and Petit takes his place, most likely Johnson at this point.

Secondly, the reason the OFs are a carousel is 1) other than Ham, none of them has proven they deserve an everyday spot, and 2) come a week from tonight, Hermida will be back, and he will take his spot in right. Girardi is giving everyone a chance to prove themselves, and whomever comes out the strongest of Aguila, Abercrombie, and Reed ends up in center. Cepicky has to hit to keep his job as a PH. When #27 comes back, Reed probably goes down. He can't hit, he gets picked off, and defensive replacements aren't good enough to stay on a performance-based roster.

Herges isn't exactly Dennis Eckersley, but there has to be some vet influence in that pen. Borowski isn't enough. Wellemeyer and German don't have much late-game experience, Johnson and Nolasco are starters, and Mess, Resop, Martinez, and the rest of the crew that will be up and down depending on performance and health don't have experience, period.

It's pretty clear this team has a lot of talent, though.

didnt know that Johnson was a starter and why isnt Abercrombie starting center....thats the problem he showed that he is fast enough to handle CF and he has the pop in the bat that you cant ignore...i understand about Hermida in RF..yes he has the job locked BUT Crombs deserves center....no doubt about it...and i thought I heard Martinez has nasty stuff...he could set up..although he doesnt have late game experience he can learn...

Until Tuesday, Abercrombie was hitting .077. Three days of hitting doesn't guarantee him anything. Jeremy Hermida is one of the top 2 or 3 outfield prospects in the sport; Reggie Abercrombie is a 25 year-old playing for the first time above A-ball. Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to see him become a solid player, but his track record suggests lots of Ks, very low OBP, pretty good pop and speed, but a recklessness that hurts his team. We've seen all of that so far this season.

Martinez is hurt right now with an elbow strain. Hold your breath that he's okay. If he is, he came out of nowhere, but his stuff is nasty.

May 1, 2006

MIAMI (AP) -- Pat Burrell (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/6375/) homered for the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to cap a comeback against Dontrelle Willis (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7133/), and the Philadelphia Phillies (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/phi/) beat the bumbling Florida Marlins (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/fla/) 8-5 on Monday night.
The Phillies rallied from a 5-1 deficit in the seventh, scoring the tying run on a gaffe by rookie second baseman Dan Uggla (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7692/). It was a hero-to-goat transition for Uggla, who hit a two-run homer and scored from second base on a groundout.
Willis (1-2) gave up eight earned runs, matching his career high, in 7 1-3 innings. He hit three batters and threw two wild pitches. Last-place Florida has lost a season-high four straight games and seven of eight. One consolation: The latest defeat came before 6,017 fans, the Marlins' smallest home crowd in four years.

I would love to see Willis remain a Marlin, but I'm all for trading him, especially if he can get us some big time prospects.

Willis has been horrible this year, and we've got a lot of studs in the system that will be starters, and could be better than Willis (Johnson,Nolasco,Petit,Sanchez,Volstad,even Olsen) I'd rather not go on potential, but they all look like they'll be good.

Plus we all know that Cabrera is the star of the team. He's one of only 3 position players (the others being HanRam and Hermida) I would not trade.

1 hit wonder? He basically has a AAA Line up trying to help him get Ws.

When your on the mound facing a hitter, whether that ball gets hit or not has nothing to do with the 7 people behind you.

Take away wins and losses cause he needs run support and all of that stuff to get a win. But his WHIP, ERA, and such has nothing to do with the team behind him. When your going 4 innings 12 hits and 6 runs. Or 2.2 innings 10 hits and 7 runs, that has nothing to do with the team, that is all on the pitcher.

1-6 with an ERA of about 5.00, it just isn't good. His last 3 starts have been better so maybe he has turned it around. But he has been poor this year and you can't pin his numbers (take away wins/losses) his hard numbers on anyone but himself.

Thats the problem. More people need to go to the games, no matter what happens to this team player wise. Even in 05 when we had a great team and chance to go to the playoffs we were still towards the bottom in attendence.

People not going to the game is one of the main reason if not the main reason why this team is in jeapordy. They are the home town team, Support them.

Well in the playoffs we filled seats

Problem is it is damn hot here, and its really not a baseball stadium, we need a new one

(No excuses though, fans need to go to games or else there wont be a team anymore, if your a real fan you will go win or lose)

to be overly optimistic, if we can keep this up we've still got a shot at the WC(Not saying we will, but we've had the 2nd best record in baseball since mid May, and we were in a similar position in 03).

If we aren't contending this year, we definatly will next year. Uggla and HanRam have been great all year. Hermida and Jacobs have improved. And our pitching... wow.

How bout Josh Johnson? He's gone up against Pedro,Schmidt(twice), and Smoltz and has held his own. And during interleague play he's scheduled to face Halladay and Johnson.

Alex44
06-16-2006, 09:47 PM

This team is not postseason ready . . however I am ecstatic about the progress tho . . it just seems like the Marlins have the best farm system and development of players in the game. They build, load up . . win . . unload, build and then reload, and that trend seems to be happening again. Plus I feel the manager is gonna be great with time, Catchers make the best managers if you are a player transitioning to manager. They cannot trade Willis or Cabrera, Willis will get out of his funk . . he's gotta lead this team, with a year or two experience and a few veteran bats in the lineup, this team will be playoff ready as early as next year.

I dont really think they are ready to win a World Series or anything....but we have a really solid core of players so if at some point we pulled near the wild card spot I would be suprised

In a playoff series I think we would probally go down, but the sooner you have the experience the better

Won the game :yes: that makes 8 straight games, and now 8 below 500, we climbing up slowly, we have Baltimore starting tuesday and they dont really scare me very much (we do have to lose eventually though :lol: )

I wish we started the season halfway decent though :nono:

Just checked. Were 9 below 500 not 8 like I had said, and about 6.5 games out of the wildcard in the loss column, we have played about 4 less games than most teams...which can be good or bad depending if we win or lose them

Well, after winning their 8th straight, they were the fourth headline on espn.com's main page.

This team is very hot and deserves recognition for sure. But recognition from the press alone does not validate how well the team is playing. The wins themselves do that. It's nice to hear good things about your team for sure, but the Marlins were predicted to finish third in the division in 2003 before being predicted to lose to SF, CHC, and NYY. How'd that turn out?

Bottom line is, Mike's right. Most of the country still doesn't care about the Marlins. We're still not "in" the race quite yet. But we sure as hell don't need some guy based in Detroit writing us up to make me proud of my team.

.5 games behind Washington for 3rd in the divison, tied with Atlanta for fourth (we can move up if Atlanta loses tonight) 6.5 games out of the wildcard

8 straight wins, 18 of 24, we didnt suck to start the season either, we lost a lot of 1 and 2 run games where we blew the save or lost on an error

18-6 the last 24; hottest run in the MLB. :hump:

You know what's real impressive? In this 8-game winning streak, Miguel Cabrera has been in a big time slump. Gotta love the way Dan Uggla has been carrying the team at bat; I think he's clearly emerged as possibly the best 2nd baseman in the NL - he's beating Utley in almost every important stat. Nice to see Hanley Ramirez break his slump today as well..

No one is asking for a ton of pub. We are wanting them to show highlights of the fish every once and a while. The fish are in forth place and a half out of third FYI.

Kind of...we're both 8 under .500, but they've played more games, won more games, and thus have a higher winning percentage.

When this division will be interesting is the point that the Mets hit their first slump of the season. They've been great so far, but Lo Duca is a strictly first-half player, and some of the older arms like Glavine, Pedro, Trachsel, and Wagner might tire as well.

I just want to see what actually happens here. For now, the Mets can lose a bunch of games and still be in first. But there's a long way to go, and anything can happen.

I used to go to a bunch from about 98 to 01 but then it got really inconvienient for me to go.....me and my step dad used to wait around outside to get player autographs (even though we really sucked those years :lol: ) and Preston Wilson actually knew me (kind of) because Id sit in centerfield every game I went to and he threw me a couple balls every game, I even said a few words to him between innings :yes: I was like between the ages of 8-11 but I remember him being a really nice guy....

That's weird, I met him in Arizona last year when my father and I went to see them/the BOB and coincidentally stayed in the team hotel. Sea Bass was very friendly, but the nicest guy on the team easily was Josh Beckett (surprise!). The guy sat and talked with us on a couple occasions and, unprompted, sent an autograph for me up to our room.

Tommy Hutton's the best, though. I've done interviews with him for a few things (including here (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/custom/nextgeneration/broward/sfl-bhs01steroidsfeb01,0,7981955.story)), and he is just a nice guy in general. I randomly asked him for the interview for the linked article out of nowhere, and he sat on the phone and talked with me, telling me stories about all sorts of stuff, for more than an hour. An absolute pleasure. Len Kasper is just as nice...man, I miss the two of them together.

Dan Uggla is now officially my favorite Marlin

VERY nice classy guy, answerd all the questions perfectly, very thankful to even be in the big leagues

He said what an amazing manager Girardi is, and how thankful he is to Joe that he gave him the starting spot, he also said he talks to hanley ramirez every day and they try to get to know eachother better and that Hanley is an amazing player at SS

The Hanley thing was in response to the question 'You and Hanley are both rookies, how important is the bond between a SS and 2nd baseman'

Ugga Bugga's been my favorite Marlin since Day 1 of spring training. The guy absolutely hustles his butt off and is getting results because of it.

:yes:

He also said they are aiming for the playoffs, and that people call them a long shot but they think they can do it, and it should be every teams goal all season no matter how good/bad your doing

up 1-0 in the top of the third

Baltimores pitcher has already thrown 55+ pitches and he only has 1 out in the third


EDIT- Make that 2-0 :D

Mike Jacobs nailed an RBI double down the line

6-0 Marlins :woot:

ShoutOut to Matt Trainer for his first career home run, and Dan Uggla for whacking out #13 on the year, Alfredo hit a two run shot that didnt look like it had the distance :D

This team is for real, two outfield assists (one throw to third one to second) and Dontrelle has captured his old form
