Who took my NL outfield vote from the Miami Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton?

When I say disappointments thus far in Major League Baseball this season, who or what do you think of? What about your team gets you seething just at the thought? I’d imagine that some of you would immediately look at the struggling starts of pitchers like Matt Harvey or Zack Greinke, with ERA’s of 4.95 and 4.37, respectively. Maybe even the lack of early production from last...

Jose Fernandez sets Marlins strikeout record

Although he’s only in his fourth season with the Marlins — two of those were hijacked by Tommy John surgery — Jose Fernandez has further established himself as one of the premier pitchers in the organization’s history. The 23-year-old right-hander left Sunday’s start after shutting out the Mets through seven innings. However, Fernandez struck out 14 Mets batters — establishing...

WATCH: Ichiro makes outstanding leaping catch

Ichiro proved on Sunday that he can be just as good at preventing hits as he is at getting them. The Mets’ Michael Conforto led off the top of the fifth with a drive off Marlins starter Jose Fernandez. Ichiro got the jump he needed on the ball and made an acrobatic grab just short of the warning track to take away extra bases. It wasn’t like Fernandez needed much help. He...

Phelps squanders lead as Marlins lose to Mets 6-4

MIAMI (AP) Miami Marlins right-hander David Phelps entered the game in the eighth inning Saturday with a plan and a lead, neither of which helped him.

Justin Bour providing nice fantasy value at first base

When it comes to the Miami Marlins and south Florida, there certainly is a lot of flash. Big names such as Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Fernandez will bring that to a city and organization. But actually, one of the most valuable choices fantasy owners could have made in their drafts was selecting Marlins first baseman Justin Bour. Prior to the season, Fantasy Pros had 33 other first...

Marlins erroneously announce Muhammad Ali’s death

The Miami Marlins had a moment straight out of a Southwest Airlines commercial. During Friday night's home game against the New York Mets, the Marlins flashed an image of Muhammad Ali on the scoreboard, along with the text, 1942-2016: Just announced at the Marlins game the goat has passed Muhammad Ali pic.twitter.com/tXnTJaXTIJ — 1999 PEDRO MARTINEZ (@b0ss561) June 4, 2016...

The Los Angeles Times reports that Muhammad Ali is in “grave condition”, with his family at his bedside in a Phoenix hospital, and that “it could be hours” before his passing. Several news outlets have had similar reports, but there is not a report out there yet saying Ali has passed away. Well, either the Miami Marlins know something we don’t, or badly misunderstood the...

Miami Marlins: Time for a bullpen makeover

After taking three of four from the Pittsburgh Pirates this week, the Miami Marlins are looking good right now. Unfortunately, the bullpen is becoming a serious issue and its recent inabilities to preserve leads almost demands a few changes to be made. Thankfully, changes have already been underway. Since May 26, three relief pitchers have been removed from the active roster. Bryan...

Jose Fernandez Has Been Unhittable, and So Hittable

Just as much as we’ve trained ourselves to not take Spring Training stats at face value, we should also by now have trained ourselves to not take player and manager Spring Training quotes at face value. Words are words, and until those words become actions, they’re not super fun to consume or analyze. Like, here’s a few examples pulled from a preseason story by the excellent...

Miami Marlins Reliever David Phelps Has Found a Home in the Eighth Inning

Miami Marlins reliever David Phelps has been working as a setup man this season after spending a few years as a swingman.

His 4.36 ERA as a starter is fine, but nothing special, as is his 3.50 ERA as...

Tom Koehler could make the Miami Marlins rotation fearsome

It took six grueling tries for the Miami Marlins to finally defeat the Atlanta Braves this season. While the offense continues to produce runs with limited playing time from Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton, the pitching staff got an excellent performance from a pitcher that could make a huge difference moving forward. It has been a tough season for Miami starter Tom Koehler...

Giancarlo Stanton’s Concerning Contact Rate

Giancarlo Stanton has always had a lot of swing and miss in his game, offsetting all the whiffs with ridiculous power displays on his way to being one of the game’s elite sluggers. So when you look at Stanton’s 2016 numbers, it’s easy to just look at the overall line (which includes a 115 wRC+) and note the unsustainably low .256 BABIP — he’s at .324 for his career, given...

Puig benched for not hustling, cracks Don Mattingly joke

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was yanked from Tuesday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds for admiring a long RBI single. Puig smoked a ball off the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth, scoring Trayce Thompson to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead. When he hit it, Puig clearly thought he had an opposite-field home run, so he admired the shot for a moment. That...

Is Marcell Ozuna Breaking Out?

Marcell Ozuna is the third-best outfielder on his team. He can’t match the power and discipline of Giancarlo Stanton, and he can’t match the patient, contact-oriented approach of rising star Christian Yelich. Partially related to those two statements, Yelich and Stanton have signed contracts worth nearly $400 million total while Ozuna, despite possessing more service time than...
