The Walk-Off Home Run and All Its Glory

This past Sunday I attended a meaningless affair starring the San Diego Padres and the Miami Marlins. Both languorous teams are in no position to make the playoffs this season, rendering this game virtually inconsequential. I trekked to Marlins Park for the promoted rubber match of James Shields versus Jose Fernandez. The matchup did not disappoint. Each pitcher made it through...

It’s Deja Vu All Over Again for the Miami Marlins

Well, the trade deadline has come and past, and you wouldn’t believe it. The Miami Marlins, yes the 18-games-below-.500 Marlins, have yet again sold at the deadline.  Did we expect anything less from our illustrious and well-respected owner Jeffrey Loria? The Marlins at, and slightly before the deadline, gave up on the already lost season.  We saw the dealing of Dan Haren to...

Boras: Marlins players are angry Marcell Ozuna is in minors

Scott Boras says that Miami Marlins players are pissed off at the team over the handling of Marcell Ozuna. Ozuna, who is represented by Boras, was demoted to Triple-A earlier this month. Though Ozuna’s numbers weren’t great, they certainly weren’t bad enough where you’d say he should be in the minors. He was batting .249/.301/.347,...Read More

The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer connected on an 86 mph fastball. It helped him become the 38th...

Marlins Flip Mat Latos to Dodgers for -1 Prospect

The headline isn’t the way the Marlins would put it. It’s not the only way to interpret Wednesday’s trade — it’s just one way to do so.

Even without his best, Jose Fernandez remains unblemished at Marlins Park

MIAMI -- Six innings. Four hits. One earned run. Four walks. Five strikeouts. Ninety-nine pitches (62 strikes). For many major-league pitchers, that stat line not only constitutes a quality start but also an impressive performance to give his team a chance to win a ballgame. Even on an off night -- by his standards -- Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez overcame uncharacteristic command...
