Instant analysis on the Marlins announcing the Matt Joyce and Brandon Kintzler deals, and a bittersweet goodbye to one of the team’s longest-tenured players.

Ely reacts to Monday’s Marlins roster moves, which completed the Matt Joyce and Brandon Kintzler signings at the expense of Jarlin García and José Quijada. Two more players “inherited” from old ownership are now headed out the door, which begs the question: Who has survived the transition? The final segment of this episode identifies the few veterans and key prospects originally acquired under Jeffrey Loria’s regime, and what it says about how the team-building philosophy has shifted.

Enjoy Episode 59!

Here is a mostly complete list of impactful players who have been in the Marlins organization since at least September 2017: José Ureña, Adam Conley, Drew Steckenrider, Brian Anderson, Miguel Rojas, Jeff Brigham, and Pablo López, and prospects Stone Garrett, Jordan Holloway, Edward Cabrera, Jerar Encarnación, Braxton Garrett, Dylan Lee, Dustin Beggs, Thomas Jones, Chad Smith, Colton Hock, Luis Palacios, Trevor Rogers, Brian Miller, Joe Dunand, Demetrius Sims, Brady Puckett, and Vincenzo Aiello.
