Without Mcab. :-°

I know that this is only SPRING TRAINING, but does anyone see this as a good thing for confidence and club house atttitudes?

:-?

Teams like the Nationals are currently struggling to score anything higher than 0.

Some have pointed to thesituation that is similiar to the Braves. Young hitters that are not afraid of established pitchers and pitchers who are not knowledgeable of the current crop of Marlins batters.

They should have a hungry/fresh/always hustle/ type of attitude. this cannot be a bad thing...can it?

Any thoughts?

Ditto that. I've got to see a lot of spring training games. They're fun, but nothing but practice. If a pitcher is working on a pitch, he'll throw the same one 5 times in a row. The goal isn't to win games or keep players off the base paths.

We won't know a thing (that we didn't know before spring training) about how MLB-ready Florida's young talent really is until April.

The Marlins are running out there starters for longer because they're all young anyway.

Wouldn't look into this... at all. Marlins will have one of the worst offenses in baseball this year.

I doubt the Marlins win 60 games this season.

Their offense will be terrible.

Please...just keep repeating:


There is NOTHING more meaninless tahn ST games.

Keep saying it over and over.

Otherwise you might have once thought Enrique Wilson would lead the league inhitting or Dave Revering would hit 400, etc. They face mostly scrub pitchers...especially early in the spring.

Well.. it's because all the young guys are playing hard trying to land a job with the big league team while the other teams are just taking it easy.

Exactly...for similiar reasons the baby Braves were written off earlier in the season in 2005.

...

They were written off because they weren't doing very well early on and their team was beset by injuries. It took an 18-8 July to give them a firm grasp on the division.

Oh, yeah, and Atlanta had only two offensive positions that were "up in the air" going in last year rather than 8.

The Marlins aren't going to be very good next year. I wouldn't be stunned if they won more than 70, but I wouldn't be stunned if they only won 50, too.
