Tweet The Miami Marlins are, to put this as delicately as possible, not in a good place right now as an organization. They rank last in the National League in attendance and, at 10-24, have the worst record in the Majors. Because of their attendance struggles, the Marlins have made the decision to close the [...]

A FINE OPERATION
The Miami Marlins, who rank dead last in MLB attendance, reportedly will close off the upper deck at Marlins Park for several games this season.

Injury and opportunity have appeared often during the early part of the Miami Marlins season.
Starting pitchers Nathan Eovaldi, Henderson Alvarez, first basemen Logan Morrison and Casey Kotchman, and catcher Jeff Mathis all were put on the disabled list before the season began.
First baseman Joe Mahoney, sidelined for part of spring training, went on the DL in late April with a right...
It’s no secret that the Miami Marlins have struggled with their attendance numbers since Opening Day. The team ranks last in attendance in the National League, and have decided to take steps to give their home field a little more of a home field feel.
The team has announced they will be closing the upper bowl of recently built Marlins Park to reduce stadium capacity from 37,442...
Early yesterday, we reported how in just the second year of a new ballpark, the Miami Marlins were on pace to potentially see the largest attendance drop between first and second year for a new facility. Based on dumping of player payroll after lavishing money in the 2010-11 offseason the Marlins could see a decline of more than 38 percent, which would break the record held by in...
This news shouldn’t come as much of a shock, given the fact owner Jeffrey Loria shipped off a chunk of the team in the off season.
The Marlins have the worst attendance in the National League with an average of 18,864 per game–capacity of the park is 37,442, and once the upper deck is closed capacity will be 27,000.
The block off will occur for the next 6 games of a 9 game...
We've posted some pretty bizarre Major League Baseball moments over the years here on Outside the Boxscore but a moment from last night's Marlins/Padres games might take the cake for one of the strangest.
The moment happened in the second inning of play as Marlins pitcher Alex Sanabia delivered a pitch to San Diego's Will Venable who appeared to hit a lazy fly ball...
It looked like a match made in heaven a year ago when Ozzie Guillen took over as the manager for the Miami Marlins. He was a coach with the team when they last won a World Series, and him also being part of the Latino community only made it seem more natural to be the skipper with a suddenly high-priced team moving into a new stadium. But then it all fell apart. The Marlins struggled...

Nobody leans in the batter’s box like Matt Diaz. He makes baseball fun.

A day after scoring 14 runs, the Miami Marlins were shut out by the San Diego Padres in a 5-0 loss. The loss snapped a two game win streak for Miami and quieted some murmurs about an improved offense. The loss to a fellow team with a losing record dropped the Marlins to 10-23 on the year. Miami remains in last place in the National League East.

Alex Sanabia pitched for the first time in San Diego as a Major Leaguer and fell to 2-5 in the process. The San Diego native was the pitcher of record in the Miami Marlins’ 5-1 loss to the Padres. Miami has now scored only 1 run combined in two games after putting up a season high 14 in Philadelphia. The Padres who also have a losing record have outscored the Marlins 10...
Marcell Ozuna has no idea where this ball went … well it went in the stands.
It led Will Venable to do this:
The San Diego Padres completed a sweep on Wednesday with a 1-0 win over the Miami Marlins. In the series, the Marlins scored one total run following on a two game win streak in Philadelphia. The hard luck loser in this game was Ricky Nolasco who was brilliant but fell to 2-4 on the year due to the inept offense. Miami is now 10-25 on the season
Nolasco struck out nine in...
