MLB Injury News:
All 30 MLB teams have shown interest in 26-year old Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero, but some teams are beginning to remove themselves from the race for Guerrero's services.
The Miami Marlins have shown interest in Guerrero in the past and made an offer to him, but were told that the offer wasn't competitive and are no longer in the running to sign him, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Miami Sun-Sentinel. It isn't known how much the Marlins offered Guerrero.
It was reported a couple of weeks ago that the Dodgers had agreed to terms on a five-year, $32 million contract with Guerrero, but the deal fell through. Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com says that Guerrero is looking for an "overall better deal" than the rumored five-year, $32 million offer from the Dodgers.
The Giants, Reds, Rangers and Red Sox are all interested in Guerrero and are currently fighting the Dodgers and other potential teams interested for his services. Guerrero hit .290 with 21 home runs this past season in Serie Nacional.

In today's edition of The Theater Corner, we've come across a story from the Miami New-Times about Miami Marlins president (well, at least for now) David Samson playing Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels in a play called Not Ready for Primetime. Wait, what? Marlins fans already have March 31, 2014 in their calendars as the start of pre-season baseball. But the...

The Miami Marlins will conclude their final road trip of the season with four games in the nation’s capital against a Washington Nationals team desperate to stay in the thick of the National League playoff race. The Marlins are just 2-5 thus far on the trip after avoiding...
Marlins Park boasts some of the largest outfield dimensions of any stadium in the majors so it’s no surprise that some of the team’s hitters would like to see the fences moved in. Count Logan Morrison among them.
Morrison has blasted five home runs in 158 plate appearances on the road this season compared to just one home run in 155 plate appearances at home. While he doesn’t...
You've probably already seen this ridiculous play by Adeiny Hechavarria during Wednesday night's Marlins-Phillies game, where Hechavarria climbed the ladder to an absurd degree to rob Cody Asche of a hit.
But have you seen it with Spanish commentary?
Give it a listen. It's just like the super enthusiastic Spanish soccer announcer from The Simpsons, but on the...
Jacob Turner pitched five shutout innings. He would have needed four more to keep up with Jordan Zimmermann.
The Miami Marlins starter remains winless on the road in his career after an 8-0 loss to the Washington Nationals on Friday night. Turner's game fell apart when he allowed four consecutive hits to start the sixth inning, while counterpart Zimmerman cruised all the way...
Defeat No. 97 in this wretched season for the Miami Marlins was quite similar to many that preceded it.
A tight game that might have gone Miami's way with one or two hits at the right time instead turned out to be a 3-2 loss to the Washington Nationals on Thursday night.
Bryce Harper hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and the Marlins spent the rest of the night playing...
I’ll admit that I don’t know a lot about the other sports, so I can’t speak to situations more messed up than what we’ve got in baseball. But in baseball — little details aside — we’ve got the A’s, and we’ve got the Marlins.
The A’s consistently try really hard to win, despite the odds being stacked against them. Oakland has a brilliant front office, and they...

Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria was in the news this week and, as usual, there was a decidedly unctuous odor to it. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported on Monday night of a power struggle between Loria and Larry Beinfest, the team’s president of baseball operations. Lining up with Loria is Dan Jennings, the vice president of player personnel. Lining up with Beinfest is Mike...
