I think they are too young and will wilt down the stretch, but Girardi should be proud of what he's done and the young talent they have. Those fish may just be sharks in the not too distant future.

Also, the Reds play the second to last series of the season against them, it would be bad if there is still something up in the air as far as a playoff appearance at that time.

The Marlins will be tough. I think they stick around because of youth and confidence. They play like they have nothing to lose. Dangerous teams think this way.

He did.

Then he dumped him for cheese

On the right sandwich, cheese is quite tasty.

I absolutely love the heart and talent of the Marlins this year. Giardi and Benifest should have the Manager and Exec of the Year jobs locked up w/o question.

But I also agree, pitchers like Olsen, Johnson, Nolasco, all while extremely talented, are likely due for a regression or two as they hit their career highs in innings pitched.

And their bullpen sucks something awful.

Which reminds me, did we ever find out who the PTBNL for Ross was?

I bet Krivsky is leading exec of the year right now, despite "the trade".

I hope it is that young lefty named Gillis or Willis...something like that. :pray:

I do not see that happening after the "firesale" they had this winter. Not a lot of things tic off MLB than having a firesale in a city with the lowest attendance and basically announcing there are financial issues that must be a concern for MLB. Of course I don't know who votes for that either.

But I have WK. Ross, Phillips, Hatteberg were DFA'd and free agent! Wily Mo for Arroyo! And a 1st place team. Of course I didn't think the fish would reach 65 wins this year either...but I vote for Girardi still.

Not bad for a team created on a budget of 14 dollars and 22 cents....

Next to last series of the year is in Miami...late september.

I was going to be there anyway, but never expected that it could actually mean something. Might mean something for BOTH clubs.

That they're doing it on a $14 million payroll is ridiculous.

I think Girardi is my favorite for manager of the year.

He's really pulled that team together. They are uber-talented, just inexperienced. He's made them believe that doesn't matter.

some fun numbers regarding payroll:

(mil)
Willis- $4.35
Moehler- $1.5
Helms- $.8(+ $.2 incentives which he will reach)
Herges- $.6

and everyone else under $.472(Cabrera)

I would never trade the Marlins a minor leaguer they wanted. :)

I would gauge their interest simply to determine the prospects I should keep. They have been simply amazing about getting the right players from other organizations.
