No Major Moves Coming For Miami Marlins
There are no major moves planned for the rest of the off-season for the lowly Miami Marlins. The team is done making any extravagant changes to a roster that is already cosmetically different from the team that the organization fielded in 2012. Mega moves that involved the Toronto Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays really transformed the team into having one of the most hated fan bases in the nation.
It is unknown to exactly why the moves were made and the reason that the team did not win does not cut it. Dan Jennings, Larry Beinfest and Jeffrey Loria definitely could have found a better reason to change the whole landscape of the Marlins’ franchise without trading people who they invested in for the long-term away to teams for basically nothing aside from mid-top 20 prospects that no one has heard of.
Miami is going to try and compete in a National League East that is looking very tough in 2013 with the Atlanta Braves getting the Upton brothers, the Washington Nationals still on the rise, the Philadelphia Phillies always lurking and the New York Mets making moves to possibly sign Michael Bourn. This division is not a downer and the Marlins took a leap back.
Something has to be done to give the Marlins a motivation to win. There is nothing right now on this team that has given them any motivation to win. Too many brainless moves have moved the team back into the mid-2000s and are making Marlins fans wish it was still 1990.
