The Marlins’ Middle-Infield Magic Trick

The Miami Marlins have been in the news this week, because they did something that’s at worst kind of stupid, and at best pretty confusing. But the Marlins only did something newsworthy in the first place because the team, overall, has been an early disappointment, and disappointing baseball teams tend to leave a few people […]

The Marlins, managers and the changing game

On Sunday, the Marlins fired manager Mike Redmond. It’s what teams do when they find themselves performing worse than expected, even if expectations of contention were probably less realistic than the hype would have suggested.

Ichiro ties Babe Ruth on all-time hits list

Monday was an eventful day for the Miami Marlins as Dan Jennings took over as manager, which made it easy to overlook a milestone achieved by one of the Marlins' players.

Miami Marlins: Is Dan Jennings the answer at manager?

After being swept by the Mets in mid-April the Miami Marlins were 3-10, and team ownership made no secret of manager Mike Redmond’s position firmly atop the hot seat. The team then won nine of ten games including a five game winning streak, and Redmond’s job seemed to be safe. However, now in mid-May the Marlins sit at 16-22, falling fast, and owner Jeffrey Loria has seen enough...

News Flash: Jeff Loria remains terrible to work for

When the Brewers fired Ron Roenicke a couple weeks ago, we speculated as to who would be the next big-league manager to get the axe. Foolishly, we cut our list of speculation short of Marlins manager Mike Redmond. Though the Marlins weren’t off to the start they are capable of — surely no one anticipated Mat Latos going into the toilet as he has — I left Redmond off the list...
