Kiss 'Em Goodbye: Florida Marlins
A low payroll and thin farm system do not bode well for the opening of a new ballpark
Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the League Division Series, League Championship Series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview.
Today we look at the Florida Marlins. It's time to kiss 'em goodbye.
For the full breakdown from all angles -- Bowden, BP and Szymborski -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
