2015 Miami Marlins Team Preview

When the talk started about the 2014 Marlins good start, few thought it was something that could be sustained. As April turned into May, we started to look at the younger players, mainly Jose Fernandez and Giancarlo Stanton, and realize that maybe this team was starting to build itself a little earlier than was expected. The Marlins managed to remain above .500 through the month...

Miami Marlins 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

The 2014 season was one of mixed results for the Miami Marlins.

How Did They Get Here:? The Miami Marlins

Last week I looked at the Atlanta Braves and tracked their progression as a franchise within the last 5 years. This week, I will continue my analysis of the National League East by looking at the team that finished 8 games under .500 and 4th in the division last year, but seems to be on the rise: the Miami Marlins. In 2010, the Marlins finished the season 80-82. Over the next three...
