FIRE Fredi Gonzalez!

Okay, I can understand starting future superstar Cameron Maybin in the minors. He’s clearly not ready for big league pitching but now he is messin’ with destiny by telling our only superstar, Hanley Ramirez not to steal bases! What kind of coach tells a back to back 50+ S.B guy to slow down and hit more home runs? Last season Hanley hit 29 home runs with 51 stolen bases and I predicted he might someday be the first-ever 50-50 man. The way he looks this Spring Training, it appears Hanley’s been working out quite a bit and 35+ home runs is not out of the question so why the hell is stealing bases a problem?

Did anyone tell Jose Canseco not to steal bases in 1988? Or how about Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez? These guys all had speed and power and played on much better teams than the 2008 Florida Marlins so what’s the big deal? Let’s be honest, it will be hard not to lose 100 games after trading Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis so why not leave Hanley Ramirez alone? It’s obvious he has something special and the Marlins won’t be competitive for a few seasons. His potential is limitless no matter what his crazy manager tells him.

Right now I am missing Joe Girardi…



  1. 2 comments . . . first off, I can guarentee you opening day at the Carolina Mudcats game, I will be there getting Maybin’s auto on a big stick. It’s only 30 mins. away from where I live. Secondly, I drafted Ramirez in my fantasy league thinking he was going to be a 20/50 guy again. If he doesn’t steal the bases is he still worth the 3rd draft pick?

  2. He’s going to hit you 30 home runs, hit .310 or better, drive in 100, and steal 20+ bases. I would say he is a Fantasy player’s dream!
