When I get home, should I listen to Jeetz's ESPN in-game interview?

three weeks pass...

Ask a snapping Jeter:

BRYANT GUMBEL: “If you were tanking, would you tell me?”

DEREK JETER: “Tanking? What is-- no-- tanking?”

BRYANT GUMBEL: “Tanking is -- not trying your hardest to win ball games in -- every day.”

DEREK JETER: “We're trying to win ball games every day.”

BRYANT GUMBEL: “If you trade your best players in exchange for prospects, it's unlikely you're going to win more games in the immediate future--”

DEREK JETER: “When you take the field, you have an opportunity to win each and every day. Each and every day. You never tell your team that they're expected to lose. Never.”

BRYANT GUMBEL: “Not in so--”

DEREK JETER: “Now, you can think -- now-- now, I can't tell you how you think. Like, I see your mind. I see that's how you think. I don't think like that. That's your mind working like that.”

BRYANT GUMBEL: “No, I get that. But I guess not in so many words--”

DEREK JETER: “But you don't. But you don't get it.”


DEREK JETER: “You don’t. We have two different mi-- I can't wait to get you on the golf course, man. We got-- I mean, I can't wait for this one.”

BRYANT GUMBEL: “No, I mean--”

DEREK JETER: “You're mentally weak.”

holy fuck does running the marlins turn you into a supervillain or is it just a prerequisite for the job

DEREK JETER: "I'm *necessary* evil!"

one month passes...

Tonight marks first time since 2016 that Marlins won a game in the ninth when trailing entering the ninth.

I haven’t gotten a full confirmation on it per se, so file this under “opinion.” I believe one of the orders of business when the Marlins season ends is removal of the HR sculpture. Say your goodbyes, 8 home games left.

In 75 years, the Home Run Sculpture will be iconic. It will be a destination. the ballpark will be ancient and adored, and people will walk into this classic piece of Americana, walk through the tunnel to get to their seats and see it in the distance, with 80 years of weather and air conditioning aging it more than a touch, but in the most charming way possible. A father will put his arm around his son or daughter and just stare.

If you think they won’t, go watch people stare at a green wall in Boston. It’s a green wall. Stop staring. I will build you a green wall, stop staring.

Except the Green Monster is more than a green wall, it’s pure baseball magic. And someone in the future will dig through the history of Marlins Park, and they’ll discover that there was a time when everyone thought the structure was a joke, an out-of-place abomination, like the people who couldn’t imagine spoiling the natural beauty of the Golden Gate with a bridge. They’ll use mind-Twitter to share it around the world, and everyone will laugh at us. And we’ll deserve it.

Assuming Miami still exists, of course.

If it does, that is my dream. This should be Wrigley Field after we’re gone.

btw the original rotation, as announced in the OP, have combined for -1.2 bWAR this season

29 players recorded at least one out on the mound for the Marlins. Only one of them posted an ERA+ over 100 with Miami: Drew Rucinski. The next lowest team: Pittsburgh, with seven such pitchers.
