The battle for the fate of the Miami Marlins is on. Two spectacular camps have emerged, vying for baseball domination in south Florida. On Tuesday morning we learned of a partnership between Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan, now they’re being joined by another star-studded partnership: Jeb Bush and Pitbull.
They had a breakthrough year from a starter who ranks seventh in the National League in FanGraphs’ WAR. He has the seventh-best xFIP in baseball. He also ranks 55th in the NL in ERA and makes a lot of money, enough that teams weren’t willing to overlook the old stats to focus on the new stats.
They had a young pitcher under a reasonable contract who was ultra-desirable last year. That pitcher has the worst ERA in the NL.
They had a dominant closer, the kind every postseason wants, even if the Giants would have had to pay down his salary a little. The closer was partially ineffective, and now he’s hurt.
They had an outfielder in the middle of a very nice offensive renaissance. But he can’t field and, whoops, looks like absolutely no team is looking for an outfielder.
I could go on. Don’t make me go on. But the Giants didn’t make a move after Eduardo Nu?ez because they Cheap Vintage Basketball Jerseys couldn’t. They were screwed in all the right ways, bless them. And it’s why they’re stuck between a rebuild and a Cheap USA Jerseys forced reload.
