Fantasy Baseball Team Preview: Miami Marlins

When the Marlins win 90 games, they win the World Series. They won 92 games in 1997 and 91 games in 2003. They haven’t won more than 87 games in any other season.

Then they traded for Mat Latos, Dee Gordon, and Martin Prado. Add...

Pirates Acquire RHP Arquimedes Caminero From the Marlins

The Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired right-handed pitcher Arquimedes Caminero from the Miami Marlins in exchange for cash considerations, the team has announced. They previously had an open spot on the 40-man roster, so no corresponding move needs to be made. Caminero was recently designated for assignment by the Marlins on January 28th, and it’s interesting that the Pirates were...

Marlins Man (Kinda) Gets His Own Baseball Card

In January, Topps revealed that they were putting out a subset showcasing famous (and infamous) ceremonial first pitches from the 2014 season. Now they’ve seemingly added another subset for collectors to search for…cards featuring “Marlins Man”. Sure, saying “Marlins Man” (real name Laurence Leavy) has his own card is almost like suggesting the dude next to him does...

Steve Cishek on Steve Cishek: The Making of a Marlin

Steve Cishek learned to throw a slider in 2009. Three years later, the side-winding Miami Marlins righty learned how to throw it more effectively against left-handed hitters. He has since emerged as one of the best closers in baseball. Cishek – as Eno Sarris wrote in December – has a reverse platoon split, despite an […]

Player Profile #99: Christian Yelich | OF | MIA

Yelich is one of the youngest players in the major leagues at just 23, but since the Marlins drafted him in the first round of the 2010 Amateur Draft he’s done nothing but impress. Even during his first taste of the major leagues in 2013 he put that pretty left-handed swing to work and exceeded expectations. Over just 62 games, he posted a .288 batting average, 34 R, 4 HR, 16...

In one of the most underrated moves of the offseason, the Miami Marlins have acquired Martin Padro from the New York Yankees in exchange for Nathan Eavoldi (and others).
