Carlos Zambrano hopes fish tanks at Marlins Park will relieve his stress

Carlos Zambrano must have spent the offseason with Phil Jackson, because dude is sounding like a Zen master. Big Z, who was acquired by the Marlins in January, says his favorite part about the new Marlins Ballpark is the aquariums behind home plate because of their calming presence. “I don’t know how many people have fish tanks in their house but psychologists say it can make...

Bud Selig wowed by Marlins' ballpark

Commissioner Bud Selig offered a one-word review of the Miami Marlins' new ballpark. ''All you can say is, 'Wow,''' Selig said. His critique came 90 minutes before the first pitch of the first game Wednesday in the Marlins' season opener against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. The ballpark's retractable roof, which is expected...

Selig's review of Marlins' ballpark: 'Wow'

Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig offered a one-word review of the Miami Marlins' new ballpark. His word: Wow. The critique came 90 minutes before the first pitch of the first game Wednesday in the Marlins' season opener against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. Selig lobbied for years in support of team owner Jeffrey Loria's campaign for the ballpark. There...

Muhammad Ali delivers the first pitch at Marlins Stadium

In an very bad idea from the mind of Marlins’ owner Jeff Loria, 70-year old Muhammad Ali delivered the opening pitch to the Miami Marlins players in a stretched golf cart (with Loria seated next to the Champ). Ali looks, well, in rough shape. Really rough shape. This honor is something that Ali, and more importantly Ali’s camp & people, should have turned down. No one wanted...

Buehrle strong, offense not in Marlins' loss

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jay Bruce homered and drove in a pair of runs, and Johnny Cueto dominated in his first opening-day start, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Thursday before one of their biggest crowds. Cueto (1-0) anchored the Reds' first opening-day shutout since 1980, when Frank Pastore beat Atlanta's Phil Niekro 9-0. The right-hander...

Hits and Misses: Marlins Pregame Was A Disgrace, Niese Deal Is Not A Wilpon PR Move, It’s Opening Day!

Just a couple of thoughts on that bizarre Marlins pregame ceremony and the reports of a 5-year Niese extension. What a despicable act by the Miami Marlins last night, who decided it would be a brilliant idea to wheel out the ailing boxing icon Muhammad Ali as part of their pre-game ceremonies. Sorry, but that was a terrible call, and to use someone so legendary and obviously...

Happy Opening Night, St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins Fans!

A lot can happen in one offseason, and the reigning World Champion St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins are a perfect example. The Marlins are kicking off 2012 with a complete face lift: a new name and a spastic jazzy new logo on their uniforms, a new skipper in Ozzie Guillen along with a few high-end acquisitions like Heath Bell, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, and Carlos Zambrano...

Dugout Digest: Opening Night

Last night, the MLB officially kicked off the season....well, barring those two silly games in Japan last week. The Cardinals defeated the Marlins 4-1, with St Louis starter Kyle Lohse no hitting the hometown bunch through six innings. The Marlins would finish with just four hits, two by Jose Reyes, and no walks. Some initial thoughts from the first game at the new stadium... ...
