Randy Choate would make a pretty awesome porn name.

I think he pissed Miami off, and now Miami wants to be a farm.

I'm not surprised that the Dodgers traded Eovaldi.
 
2012-07-25 08:11:28 AM  
Well, that team lasted as long as I expected.

Once Miami gets a new stadium they won't have to do this every couple of years.

As much as this fits the Marlins' usual MO, I can't help but think that getting rid of Hanley is actually a good thing for them at this point. He hasn't been particularly good in the past couple of years, and supposedly he just pisses people off.

Agreed. Now they enter a "rebuilding" era.

Any and everyone on the Marlins roster is now up for traded, except for Giancarlo Stanton.
 
2012-07-25 10:43:56 AM  
Overpaid and overrated, but also a huge upgrade over Dee Gordon and those other piles of crap they've been trotting out at shortstop (assuming he goes back to that position).

Maybe they shouldn't have built the coma inducing homerun carnival ride in center field

Pretty sad that with the new stadium they're still only middle of the pack in attendance (% filled)

Yeah, but you're not gonna move that contract.

It's already the smallest stadium in MLB (37,442 total capacity).

yes.. highlighting your point. If you can't fill what's already the smallest stadium -by design-, you might just suck.

Not so sure it's a fire sale (yet) more than it's about getting rid of a player in decline with a bad attitude. Maybe getting him back at SS in a Dodgers uniform might kick him in the ass, who knows.

Until they move more players, not ready to call this another fire sale.

Loathe as I am to give Boston any credit, Fenway holds 37,495, so we're not talking a huge disparity between smallest and second smallest.

The Red Sox will break 2 million in attendance on their next home game (#54), according to ESPN. The Marlins are on pace to hit that on the 71st game, if the fire sale doesn't slow the turnstile. It's not the ballpark, though it might be that atrocity beyond the fence.

The difference is that Fenway was built a century ago and shoehorned into a city block. Marlins Park was built with such a small capacity -intentionally-, and they still can't fill it up.
 
2012-07-25 11:58:08 AM  
Okay, I misread the intent of your post. I thought you were saying their attendance was only so low because of the size of the park; that perhaps they were doing a better job of filling seats than half the league. After further review, that call is overturned. My apologies.

Gunny Highway: No Wandy Rodriguez to the Pirates thread? Shocked.


Man, Miami and Houston have sold about half of their rosters at this point. Does Houston think that they're going to get an expansion draft when they switch leagues or something? I know Luhnow's a pretty new guy as GM, but he didn't do poorly in St. Louis with evaluating talent. I don't see how they have 25 major leaguers on that club any more, though. And it'll probably be a stretch to have a starting nine that isn't woefully inexperienced/undertalented next year, too.

Side note: Will the Dodgers have Ramirez tonight? Because I'd rather not see him in St. Louis just yet.

Houston's going with the "nuke everything, bottom the fark out, and start over with crazy high draft picks" plan. Which is really what they should be doing. No sense in keeping your bad team together, or making a bunch of moves to maybe improve the team to mediocre.

They'll leave that to the Brewers.

Supposedly the A's were offered Hanley Ramirez for a couple of minor leaguers and the Marlins picking up half his disgustingly bloated salary. I have no idea who the minor leaguers involved were, so I'm not sure if it was a good deal or not, but I'm sort of relieved that they didn't pull the trigger. I kind of like the idea of Yunel Escobar at short instead.

The fact that the Dodgers are picking up his entire salary, and they picked up Eovaldi, who could turn out to be a serviceable starter, makes this a pretty goddamn good deal for the Fish.

FTFY. The stadium is pretty cool to see once, as a novelty sort of thing; but it brings to mind Winston Churchill's quote about Calcutta: "I'm glad I have seen it, chiefly because it will be unnecessary for me to see it again".
