I don't ask in a way to be ignorant, but what else do you expect him to do? The only other option is to call up AAA players and play them in those positions (till lawrie gets back) which will result in the same issues would it not?

Our starting pitching has just been horrible, it's hard to win when you're giving up so many runs early in games.

Nah there are smarter options:

play an actual third baseman at 3rd (derosa, who's a better hitter,has a better arm too), move izturis to 2nd where he's pretty good defensively (way better than bonifacio with the glove, and can actually hit his target) it makes much more sense since this will only be for a couple of weeks, can have bonifacio play here and there in the of maybe platoon with rasmus since hes a switch hitter, or play him in cf, have rasmus dh and tell lind to fuck off lol

He has been playing DeRosa third. And he's shown he isn't much of an upgrade over Izturis in the field.

you're joking right, hes played at third twice in 6 games, izturis started at third today, he has less errors and a stronger arm, even if they are equal at 3rd moving izturis to his natural position at 2nd where bonifacio shouldn't play benefits the defense at 3rd and 2nd, so its a no brainer, bonifacio k's too much at the plate too another reason he should be a bench player

edit: again the point im making is that gibbons should get some of the blame too, he hasnt been perfect, the pitching hasn't been good and the hitting with risp is the 2nd worst in the al so of course its not just him to blame either, but saying he has little or nothing to do with losing is just dumb

Maicer at 2nd, cool. Boni has been making our middle infield weak with some of those errors. A day off may be good for him.

Well, this has been a fine start to the season.



We're now the Marlins of this season, with nearly the same roster.

Mehh, i said this when the deal was made Josh Johnson didn't impress me, Buehrle is getting old and is not what he once was. Romero also being a mess and you have the worst ERA in the league.


I hope it's turned around and yes it is far too early to panic but i was never that impressed with the starting pitching tbh. This city is cursed.

I think it's doubtful that 4 proven vets will collapse simultaneously. They'll come around.
