Best moves by Jeter yet
Needed some good news while our Yelich wins the MVP and NL Pennant
Bring back the Teal and Black
doesn’t look like they’re going to do that unfortunately. seems as if they’re going to make blue and black our main colors
That roster was so much fun on MVP 2005
I know it’s not going to be this, but god damn I want it to be:
Saw we made another trade yesterday and now have more international money than Baltimore
Seems almost a done deal that we get all 3. Though my excitement is tempered a bit by the fact we are about to pay more for a guy who projects as a light hitting lead off hitter then the angels paid for Ohtani.
I don't hate it. Better than the current shit.
Guess that means no more money for Gaston.
He the one that flunked for roids?
press conference starts at 11:00
Interested to see what the uniforms will look like
I like how they changed their Twitter name to Miami Miami Marlins
Good thing we turned down the #2 prospect in baseball for him at the deadline
Trade deadline: “We won’t trade him because we’re building our future around him”
Off-Season: “Well we had to trade him for scraps because he made it clear he wouldn’t be a part of our future.”
Appears Jeter is serious about the international market, last few weeks we've hired a guy from the yankees and another guy from the red sox who both worked in their international scouting departments
Kids been killing it in the AFL after an average year in the minors for us
Revealing the uni’s on Thursday
Sign the cuban studs
get rid of the home run....thing
get rid of the green walls
Loving all Jeter's moves so far this offseason
The blue looks nice.
A shocking Loria behavior revealed — and how Marlins will replace the home run sculpture

On a day the Marlins announced how they will replace former owner Jeffrey Loria’s prized home run sculpture that new management wanted to no part of, the difference in approach between Loria and new owner Derek Jeter was reinforced in another way, too.
While Jeter has indicated he will defer to his baseball people, the extent of Loria’s intervention gained some clarity Tuesday.
During his weekly segment on the local hour of Dan Le Batard’s ESPN show on 790 The Ticket, Marlins president David Samson confirmed what the Miami Herald and others previously reported, that Loria meddled to extremes in personnel decisions. But for the first time, Samson went further, citing specific examples.
Samson said agents Sam and Seth Levinson convinced Loria to give catcher John Buck a three-year, $18 million deal before the 2011 and Loria agreed to the deal without getting any input from the Marlins’ front office. The deal proved regrettable, with Buck hitting .213 in two seasons before being traded to Toronto.

“The Levinson brothers found a way to explain to Jeffrey that John Buck was the answer to all of his dreams,” Samson said. “He had a good season for Toronto and [the agents] called up Jeffrey and said you need to sign John Buck and here’s how to do it. ‘You don’t even have to speak to him, he will sign the deal right now.’”
Loria’s baseball people disagreed with that approach and told him so.
“Our view was we’ve got to meet the guy,” Samson said. “We touched the merchandise in a way that was not real because we weren’t allowed to meet him. We said one year, maybe two years and no way we could go three. It turned out three years had already been agreed to [between Loria and the Levinsons] and there’s nothing we can do.”
Asked how many times Loria intervened like that, Samson cracked “Even Alfonseca would not suffice.”
Antonio Alfonseca, the former Marlins reliever, had 24 appendages — 12 fingers and 12 toes.
Asked by Le Batard for another example of Loria intervening, he said Loria agreed to a deal with reliever Dustin McGowan when the Marlins had no roster space at the time.
“We found out on a random Tuesday that we had signed Dustin McGowan to a major-league contract when we didn’t have [one],” Samson told Le Batard.
“God bless, Jeffrey, he’s trying. He’s not the only owner who does this. Agents have this way of making owners feel good. Scott Boras is best at it, the Levinsons are the second best.”
Samson texted me later that he was “kidding” about any suggestion that Loria intervened all the time. “He used ownership prerogative about as often as any other owner; 18 years about once per year,” Samson said. “Not bad, actually.”
Loria owned the team from 2002 through the end of the 2017 season, before his sale to a group led by Bruce Sherman and Jeter was finalized in October 2017.
Jeter is apparently not operating the team that way. He has said that Mike Hill is in charge of baseball operations and brings any decisions to Jeter and ownership to review.
Every splash FA signing that ownership had was a disaster
So...just a random Twitter update then?
Im sure they’ll post pics and an article with it. Fine with me o don’t care about some big press conference to just unveil new uniforms
New hat is def on the christmas list.
Like the colors but those are pretty plain
New unis get a .
I like the black
I really like the black and white jerseys. Also a big fan of the font. Finally, the hat whoops serious ass.
White, grey, black....just so ordinary. Should be more of the blue/flamingo as primary colors. But the color scheme is nice.
Really liking the black
Blue colors are meh to me
I like the blue. Then again, I was one of the 5 people who liked the orange jersey/hat combo
