Pujols Meeting with Marlins

Marlins have a new stadium, a new high profile manager in Ozzie Guillen, and have changed their name from Florida to Miami. It wouldn't shock me to see them go in big with Albert and Reyes and make a run at being a contender.

If they add Albert and Reyes, they will undoubtedly be a contender.

Passan has a piece up on the Marlins:

Since 2001, 11 MLB teams have moved into new stadiums. In the first year, eight increased payroll over the previous season, and the three that didn’t dropped less than 5 percent. By Year 3, five of 10 teams lowered payroll from the year before. In Year 4, it was four out of seven, and the three that increased payroll did so by less than 4 percent.

Good for the Marlins if they do make a serious run at Pujols. They've been treated as a farm team for the rich for far too long.

Good for the team that conned the local government out of hundreds of millions of dollars by crying poor even though they made $50 million in profit? Oh, woe is the Marlins. Loria should be in prison for fraud.

Do Reyes and Pujols really make them contenders? They still need some pitching and their team isn't THAT great offensively. That is a really tough division. The Nats and Braves are just going to keep getting better as time goes by and the Phillies will be ok for another year or 2 before crap hits the fan. They could leap over the Mets.

It would dynamically change the team, but I don't know how far it would go.

Wait, so having Reyes and Pujols wouldn't make them a terrific offensive team? Don't forget about Stanton, that kid is a stud. Their pitching isn't great but it's better than ours and I would venture to say that picking up Reyes and Pujols would make us a contender in the NL East.

    • Remind me what illegal substance Ruth was rumored to have used?
    • I agree with this...somewhat.  But if we do trade Santander this offseason, I think it further hurts us against southpaw starters. I don't want the Orioles to go out and load up on right-handed hitters just to load up on right-handed hitters, but I would like to see the Orioles either (i) commit to adding players that have proven to hit lefties (whether a right-handed hitter or not) or (ii) commit to playing guys like Stowers against lefties instead of writing a completely different lineup against southpaws. Platooning is good and all when it makes sense, but I'd rather not pigeon-hole someone as a platoon player before he's proven himself to be one (particularly when he's shown well against lefties in the minors). 
    • Integrity?  I don't like Aaron Judge making us his ***** for 6+ years.  Let him hit it against someone else.  He's had a great, historic season, it's been plenty fine for MLB.  I like the MLB just fine, but they still can't overcome their issues when Judge is hitting 60+ homers and you have a guy in Anaheim doing stuff no one's ever seen before and they're having a hard time getting people out to the park to see it.  MLB is declining in popularity whether or not Judge hits 1, 2 or 13 homers this weekend.
    • You pitch to Judge if it makes sense in the game to pitch to Judge and you walk him if it makes sense to walk him. The Orioles are "essentially" out of contention, but you still play to win the games. If Judge comes up with a runner on second and 1 out late in a close game, I'm walking him to set up the double-play and go after a lesser hitter. But I'm not walking him to walk him. If he hits 62, 63 or whatever against us then congratulations to him....hopefully we win anyway. 
    • Thank goodness that PED using Ruth lost the record!   Baseball players cheat, they just do. Folks need to grow up about it. Lots of your favorite players growing up were probably cheating. Bonds was just better, better at it and better at baseball.
    • Yes.  I enjoyed the recaps and the video clips.   Thank you!
