MLB Scores: Cubs 5 Marlins 4

Cubs even series at one apiece. I confess now, as I have several times of late, that I was one of the people clamoring feverishly excited looking forward to the return of Mike Dunn. I felt like his presence would allow everyone below the now established late inning trio of Kyle Barraclough, David Phelps and A.J. Ramos to move down a notch in the pecking order, and we wouldn't have...

Marlins edged after Bour's grand slam

The Cubs came out swinging, and scoring, quickly on Friday night. Kris Bryant and Willson Contreras each homered in the first inning, but it was Contreras' RBI single in the seventh that proved the difference in a 5-4 win over Miami at Marlins Park.

Should the Miami Marlins consider trading Dee Gordon?

It could be an option. When Marlins Team President David Samson found out second baseman Dee Gordon would be suspended 80 games for performance-enhancing drug use, he told reporters he felt “betrayed.” Now, more than two months after the suspension, the Marlins are competing for a playoff spot without the production of 2015’s batting champion. As the Marlins evaluate their...

Ozuna's breakout season predicted by solid 2015 finish

Marcell Ozuna was the subject of trade rumors all winter and was actually sent back to the minors last year, but his amazing 2016 hasn't come totally by chance. It's hard to hit the ball as hard as he does and not succeed, and we could see that coming last year.

Exploring the Marlins Improved Offense

At the beginning of the year, if you had said that Dee Gordon would miss half the season and that Giancarlo Stanton would be an approximately league average hitter, it would probably have been pretty damn safe to assume that the Miami Marlins would not be in contention in 2016. After all, this team was essentially the poster boy for the “stars and scrubs” strategy. The top of...

Miami Marlins would have difficulty trading for Drew Pomeranz, Jake Odorizzi

The Marlins simply do not have a lot of resources to trade to acquire these cost-controlled intriguing assets. The Miami Marlins have expressed some trade interest in various starting pitchers to help bolster a rotation that has been ailing since the start of the campaign. Behind Jose Fernandez, the team's rotation has been questionable. Wei-Yin Chen has struggled in his first season...

2 key hits by Giancarlo Stanton help Marlins beat Cubs 4-2

MIAMI (AP) Giancarlo Stanton homered in the fourth inning and singled home the go-ahead run with two outs in the eighth, helping the Miami Marlins send the Chicago Cubs to their fourth consecutive defeat, 4-2 on Thursday night.

The Miami Marlins are Finally Coming into Their Own

Back in 2012, Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria made a large promise to fans of the ball club after a $515 million stadium, filled with home run sculptures, aquariums, and bobble-heads, was built in Miami. He promised them a winning team. After years of mediocrity as the Florida Marlins, the team packed their bags and headed for Miami, Florida in search of a new beginning of some...

Top of Marlins lineup setting the table

Setting the table is something managers strive for in making out their batting orders. Getting those hitters at the top of the lineup that have the ability to reach base with regularity is key in allowing the sluggers to follow with RBI opportunities. Marlins manager Don Mattingly had the league’s best lead-off man in Dee Gordon. But with Gordon’s long suspension, Mattingly has...

The Miami Marlins Have Several Potential All-Stars in 2016

For seemingly the first time in a long time, the Miami Marlins won’t need a pity pick for the All-Star Game. There are several Marlins who deserve to make the National League’s team this season. In fact, I will almost undoubtedly be writing another article in a few weeks covering the biggest Marlins All-Star snubs in 2016. While not even close to all of the Marlins discussed...

DraftKings: Ole! Jose! Jose! Jose!

A little rest never hurt anyone, right? The Marlins had this secret preseason plan to rest Jose Fernandez during the season and it happened to fall during his last scheduled start. Well, guess what? He's back! Fernandez is a machine. He's filthy, he's dominant, and he's mowing down the competition like Clayton Kershaw; only he's right-handed and gets paid a lot less. Fernandez leads...

Little boy adorably gives baseball to young girl at Marlins game (video)

A little boy generously and selflessly made a fellow young fan’s day during Sunday’s tilt between the Miami Marlins and Colorado Rockies at Marlins Park by giving a baseball to a little girl seated by him. The backstory that played into what inspired the youngster’s generosity is unclear from the video — although it appears the boy’s day played some role — but what...

Miami Marlins: Check out the standings

So this is just one of those usual years, right? The New York Mets and Washington Nationals are battling it out for the NL East title, while the NL Central teams battle it out for playoff positioning, right? Seems anti-climactic. Meanwhile, the Miami Marlins are likely the team in the middle of the good and ugly teams. For those who actually think these scenarios are true, you might...

Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton aims for a fashion home run

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Giancarlo Stanton can pull off virtually any outfit, thanks to his easy confidence. He looks at home on the cover of sports magazines, or clad in a custom suit accessorized with designer shoes that cost four figures. Despite his place in the upper echelon of fashionable athletes, the All-Star slugger for the Miami Marlins is a bit modest when it comes to his...

Ranking Ichiro Suzuki’s eight most memorable MLB career moments

Ichiro Suzuki’s place as a worldwide baseball icon was secure — even before what took place on Wednesday. But on that afternoon, the 42-year-old reached a unique milestone. A ninth-inning double in San Diego marked the 4,257th hit of his professional career (combining his totals in MLB and Japan). Whether or not you believe he should be recognized more for overtaking Pete...

Indonesian soccer stadium rips off Marlins Park logo

There is a saying that suggests imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that is the case, then the Miami Marlins should be flattered somebody actually liked something about their monstrosity of a baseball stadium. They just have to travel to Indonesia to find them. The logo for Wibawa Mukti Stadium in Indonesia looks a little familiar (via @BigGuzz assist @assbajik) pic...

Ichiro Suzuki’s impressive play key for Miami Marlins

It’s 2016 and Ichiro Suzuki is still racking up base hits for the Miami Marlins. After 12 years for the Seattle Mariners and a short stint with the New York Yankees, the 42-year old Japanese legend has been a treat to watch for Miami fans since they acquired him prior to last season. Last year, Ichiro was a veteran presence that only hit .229 while having a lot of playing time...

The Pitcher Who Doesn’t Get Put Into Play

I don’t know you, but I know you didn’t spend last night watching the Marlins and the Padres. Tom Koehler won. Jeff Mathis hit a grand slam. The most interesting player who appeared for the Padres allowed Jeff Mathis to hit a grand slam. The Marlins aren’t bad, and I know even the worst team in the majors is a team of elites, but, look, there’s compelling baseball and there’s...
