Marlins' Ramos reflects on his Tommy John experience, empathizes with Fernandez

MIAMI -- Hours after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April 2008, A.J. Ramos entered a classroom on the Texas Tech campus to take a Spanish final.

Stanton suffered a left hamate wrist fracture on a swing-and-miss during Friday’s game. He remained in the game, but in visible pain during his 9th inning at-bat, after which X-Rays revealed...

Can the Marlins actually contend this year?

If it weren’t for the Phillies, this would not even be a conversation.  However, due to the Phils’ ineptness (current winning streak aside), the topic can momentarily turn to the Miami Marlins and whether they have a late season push in them. Indeed, as it stands now, the Marlins are not lighting the world on fire (twelve games under .500), but there is one big reason why the...

Justin Bour is the Miami Marlins’ best option at first base

Christina De Nicola reports that Mike Morse should be returning to the Miami Marlins from the disabled list soon, and all indications point toward him resuming his role as Miami’s every day starter at first base.
