3. Which player did the Marlins acquire this off-season that they’ll regret acquiring the most?

Ehsan Kassim: Dee Gordon, because the team played a hefty price for his services, so if he flops in 2015, he’ll be a sunken cost for a team that has a smaller window than most realize to win.

Travis Honeycutt: Dee Gordon, because speed kills, but is harmless if he can’t get on base. And his first few years in MLB, he couldn’t.

Daniel Zylberkan: If Michael Morse has two largely injury hit years, where he can’t even take his at bats, he’ll be the worst pickup. I like the power and it plays especially in this current run scoring environment, but the track record says that the Marlins will have to rely on Justin Bour and Viosergy Rosa to take the majority of his plate appearances by the end of his contract.

Miller Lepree: I don’t want to answer this.

    Dillon Murrell: I think the team will regret signing Morse the most. If he proves to be ineffective or gets hurt, the team will really regret giving him two years. This has the potential of turning into another Garrett Jones type deal, although I think it has more upside.

    Michael Sonbeek: Dee Gordon. I think the Marlins and most of the fans expect more from Dee Gordon that you can or will get.
