The key to the offense this year is the health of Hermida and Jacobs. If they can stay healthy this team is better then last year's squad.

2. 2B Dan Uggla
3. SS Hanley Ramirez
4. RF Jeremy Hermida
5. LF Josh Willingham
6. 1B Mike Jacobs
7. 3B Aaron Boone (3B Matt Dominguez) 2009
8. C Miguel Olivo
9. SP

Starting Rotation

1. Anibel Sanchez
2. Josh Johnson
3. Andrew Miller
4. Scott Olsen

- As guys like Uggla and Willingham approach 30, say bye to them too.
- Anibel Sanchez would be your ace???????? No way man.
- Among the C options down the line, don't ignore Langley.

As bad as Cabrera's defense was, he still is one of the BEST offensive players in this game. Given the numbers he puts up, a few errors here and there are not a big deal. -- Many need to stop blowing this out of proportion when it comes to Cabrera.

A-Rod & Cabrera through their first 720 games (per ESPN)

Code: Select all

Rodriguez Cabrera
Avg. .311 .313
Hits 892 842
HR 169 138
RBIs 533 523



Matt Dominguez might be a special talent, but Cabrera IS one of the BEST currently.

Jacobs has tremendously dissapointed since he got here. He came in with high praise/marks, yet has only digressed to some degree.

Yes, he does put up some what good numbers, but not what was 'said' he could do.....

We all know that Cabrera is one of the best in the game. Being what the teams situation is there is no way we could afford him. Sucks that we left him go but I am more then happy with the deal that was made once again being in the situation that the team is in. Miguel will be seeing Manny type money real soon.

As far as pitching goes. I really think the Lins need to go out and get themselves a veteran pitcher for that rotation. With the current savings there shouldnt be any excuse why they cant go out and make a decent offer for one.

I agree; add a veteran starting pitcher and some depth in the bullpen to bail out the young developing starters in some games. Also, we need a better catcher to call the games. Olivo? please.

Give this new guy Rabelo a chance. I was looking at some game stats from last year and he looks to be a decent hitter. Dont know about his game calling but he is worth a shot atleast to compete for the job. As for starting pitching. Wondering who can we get for a decent price or a reclamation project.

Sanchez & Johnson will more than likely be our top 2 starters.

Who else fills the rest of the rotation?

btw, is Sanchez expected to be ready this season?

How about Prior?

What would it take to get him from the Cubs?

Sanchez should be back fine from his torn labrum

Prior would be so sweet. Might have to give up a decent prospect to get him though and he looks headed to the Padres

How about Livan Hernandez...... "I Love You Miami!"...
He is probably done but it would make for some nice headlines...
Prior would be great IMO

Livan Hernandez would be so ideal. He is the innings eater that the team needs. He also always does well going against a teams number 1 for some reason. I think he would be a great fit if the Mets dont beat us to him first.

The Marlins have some money to spend now even if it's a little bit but more then enough to shore up the bullpen with some veterans.

Octavio Dotel would be a nice addition to the pen

This franchise pulls in around $60M each season, yet only spends half of that on the team.
This franchise makes bundles of money. It turns a wonderful profit. Take out the calculator and add up what they got last year:

$30 million. That's in revenue sharing.

$12 million. That's an estimated local TV deal, according to a source.

$18 million. That's from the national TV deal.
