Been flipping back and forth with the Heat and Marlins but it looks like the Marlins will fall. No hitting, JJ gave up 3 runs but no run support

Sucks that we lost.

But that stadium is phenomenal. Unreal.

Theyve urbanized Little Havana. Laaaawd what did my eyes see last night. The area didn't even look like the same place.

Couldnt find one Goddamn Cuban food vendor with a Chorizo to save my life but I did park on the old lady's lawn where I used to park for games at the Orange Bowl.

Food options at the stadium absolutely **** on anything Sun Life has. They have actually chefs that you can watch cook. Pressed Cubano. Incredible. Can't wait to go back.

I didn't go last night but I did go to the Marlins/FIU game. The stadium is amazing. I posted a thread with a bunch of pics. I'm going in a few weeks. The place is incredible.

Even though I root for the Phillies, I have to say I like the Marlin's new stadium, the lime green colors, the fish tanks in the walls, the sliding roof. Hopefully I can get out there to watch my Phillies when they come to town. :up:

Was it stupid? Yeah but it's getting blown up for no reason. He didn't mean to say it like that and yet it blows up. I'm a Cuban American and it didn't bother me. I know what he was trying to say but it was taken out of context.

At least the Phils offense finally decided to show up for a game. Nice to see them score more than 1-2 runs a game.

I wouldn't be worrying about Johnson. He's a great pitcher that has had a slow start to the year.

It wouldn't make me forget. But I'd be incredibly happy if the Marlins could win the World Series.

If nothing else it would shut up the idiot Hurricane fans who still believe that the Marlins are the sole reason for the destruction of the Orange Bowl. They can **** right off with that noise. I loved that stadium like I love family. But I can't fault the Marlins for the fall of the OB.

Heath Bell is the biggest mystery ever.

Other than the hit by Solano, that dude mowed throw the batters he faced. And even the hit by Solano was a swing and a prayer on an 0-2 count.

Carlos Lee trade is a low risk high reward. Last year was the only year for Houston he hit less than 20 HRs (and only 2nd in his career) and he is still a decent RBI guy. The Astros pay a huge chunk of the contract, and we didn't give up much (Dominguez is a great defensive 3B prospect, but he ain't a hitter)

Even when Juan Carlos Oveido gets re-instated Ozzie won't kick Bell out of the closer role


If he had any plan to he would have done it a looooooong time ago

It never really took the first time, but Heath Bell‘s latest blown save on Sunday has caused the Marlins to again try a closer-by-committee.

It sucks how much this team hasn't changed. It's been the same type of Fredi Gonzalez/Edwin Rodriguez ballclub with a higher payroll and a fancy new stadium.

I'd say make some changes, but what can we change at this point?

Oviedo suffered the injury while working his way back into game shape in the minors and the UCL, if torn, is what leads to Tommy John surgery and a 12-month recovery.

Good morning, Marlin fans!

If you're just waking up, you're probably just finding out that the Marlins have traded away Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers and are currently taking offers for Josh Johnson!

Exciting times here!

**** YOU LORIA

Hanley needed to go sooner or later, and Anibal was an expiring contract, but still, it's the principle. The Marlins are having yet ANOTHER fire sale.

It's necessary moves, but it doesn't mean it isn't embarrassing.

Glad to see Hanley go to be honest. Crushed that they dealt Infante though. I wish we could've included Jim Leyland in the Detroit trade. Tigers are frickin' stacked now.

It wouldn't be so bad if Loria and Samson weren't the owners. Even if the rest of the baseball office is pretty good, they put a mark on the franchise. And it sucks that our farm system is awful. We need our own Trouts and Harpers to keep the fan base hopeful for the future instead of knowing that anyone that has success in this club will be traded away.

How can Los Marleens survive? They're drawing Oakland A's-type numbers at a brand new stadium.

It's funny, the screams for "we'd be competitive, but we need a new stadium!", and then they go and pull these types of shenanigans. They should realize that beisbol isn't popular everywhere, and just because they build a new glitzy stadium in Miami doesn't mean people are going to come out in droves. For some teams, that does work, like the Giants building their ballpark by the Bay, but they've got a huge following all over the Bay Area...something the Marlins don't even come close to in Miami.

Had they committed to their team and maintaing a higher payroll, there's a chance that people on the fence, hesitant about being burned a few times, might have come in and decided to support the team. But, one rough patch, and the team gets broken apart. So stupid. Dumber than George Bush with Down Syndrome.

It would have been like the Heat breaking up their team last year when LBJ got in that tiff with Spoelstra. Teams need to take awhile to gel, especially ones where you've brought in a ton of big names. With big names come big ego's, and it's going to take some time to gel.

Hiring Ozzie Guillen wasn't going to do anyone any favors. I guess they figured a lunatic manager would be just what was needed to get things going. He can't manage or juggle personalities worth ****, and it's shown.

The Marlins are basically MLB's Washington Redskins, but with a giant firesale component tied to them. How anyone could support them year-in and year-out is beyond me. It's incompetence at its finest.

Even though my Phils didn't make the playoffs, it was nice to see them play well in the second half of the year.

Congrats to Migs on winning the triple crown. I think it's difficult to wrap our minds around what a historically terrible trade the Cabrera move was. In the epic history of our oldest popular sport, that trade might be the worst since the Bambino. It's right up there with Brock and Ryan. If Beinfest really is out the door, I think there were a lot of positives in his time here. But the stench of the Cabrera trade is like having a scarlet letter branded into his forehead. The unfortunate thing is we all know it was necessitated by Loria's meddling. He's the real villain here. Without the team killing signings of Bell and Buck, which he is supposedly behind, we would have had the cash to more aggressively pursue Cespedes and Gio. This year could have gone very differently. I don't think Loria is capable of bringing in someone better than Beinfest. I think he and Samson are nooses around this team's neck. I don't think there's much to look forward to while they're here. Hopefully, they wrap up defrauding our city and move on sooner rather than later.

Hell if they are taking 80% of the contract and taking Heath Bell's contract . . . why the hell not. Would certainly help fill the stadium as he passes all of these records over the next 5 years and he's still a decent player and could find some swag returning to his roots down here. Getting him for 5 or 6 million a year doesn't seem bad at all.

Marlinsbaseball.com is pissed that Ozzie got fired.

Personally, with how the season went, you had to get rid of a lot of people, including Ozzie. He pissed off pretty much a majority of the fanbase in the first week. The franchise spent a lot of money and it didn't work out; it happens.

Rumors have the following names linked to the job; former Marlin catcher and current manager of the Twins Single A affiliate Mike Redmond, former Marlin players Mike Lowell (though he said earlier this year he didn't think he was ready) and Jeff Conine, Reds pitching coach Bryan Price (whose been a damn good pitching coach wherever he's been), Dodger Third Base Coach Tim Wallach, Padres Special Assistant Brad Ausmus and AAA New Orleans Manager Ron Hassey.
