Found April 10, 2013 on MarlinsBaseball.com:
Wednesday’s 8-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves moved the Miami Marlins to 1-8 on the year.  Most of the runs came in a six run fifth inning for Atlanta where they hit two home runs off of Miami starter, Alex Sanabia.   This was the third time that the Marlins have been shut out in only nine games and the first time that a starter was ineffective.   The Marlins currently hold the worst record in Major League Baseball. Sanabia was cruising until the fifth, maintaining his 0.00 E.R.A for the year but then it all came unraveled in that inning.   In all, Atlanta had eight hits and six runs off of Sanabia.   The young righty also walked three while striking out two.   Ryan Webb and John Maine each allowed a run in an inning of relief while Mike Dunn pitched a scoreless eighth inning.   Sanabia who was charged with the loss fell to 1-1 but remains the only pitcher on the Marlins’ staff with a win next to his name. The Marlins put together eight hits including a double from Placido Polanco and ...

2013 Miami Marlins summed up in one perfectly designed vanity license plate

After the great purge of 2012, the Miami Marlins are sitting in the basemen in the NL East, with a brutal record of 1-6, tied for dead last in all of baseball with the Houston Astros, which is pretty pathetic considering the joke the Astros have become. Owner Jeffrey Loria is public enemy No.1 in Miami, and outside of Giancarlo Stanton, the team has no star power to speak of. Basically...

Miami Marlins vanity plate features a pretty crappy message (photo)

Those of you out there who know a little Spanish — or at least some of the curse words — will have to agree that the word featured on this vanity plate probably more than sufficiently summarizes the feelings a lot of Miami Marlins fans have about their Major League Baseball franchise. It’s funny, you see, because “ierda” is the Spanish word for “s**t” and maybe this...

Miami Wastes Another Great Start

The Marlins’ starting rotation has been one of the best in Major League Baseball thus far this season but that has resulted in a 1-7 record after Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves.  Despite six good innings from Wade LeBlanc, Miami’s offense struggled to get much going once again.   The Marlins have been in every game they’ve played this year but have only been able...

Braves third baseman Juan Francisco hits monstrous homer, admires the hell out of it

During Atlanta's 8-0 win in Miami last night, the Atlanta offense struggled for the first four innings before exploding in the fifth. Andrelton Simmons started the scoring with an RBI single, and Braves rookie catcher Evan Gattis extended the lead to four runs with a three-run homer. But the real cherry on top during the inning was this monstrous home run by Braves third baseman...

Marlins fan Smuggles a Raccoon into Ballpark (Photo)

  So you is this bizarre to you? Because it is to me. The Miami Marlins and their fans are obviously in full YOLO mode right now. I don’t know if this Marlins fan brought this raccoon to the game as some sort of protest against the organization for taking the taxpayers money to build a new park with the stated intention of fielding a competitor, then liquidating all the talent...

Braves Pitching Still Leads Team

Pitching is still the Braves strength The Braves are off to a fast 8-1 start and their newly found power is what everyone is seemingly talking about.  Atlanta is tied for the National League lead in homers and some of their biggest power hitters have yet to flex their muscles. Justin Upton leads the majors with six home runs and Evan Gattis is hitting Paul Bunyan type blasts. ...

Surprised TV viewers get to see where the real action is at in Marlins Park

The Braves sent left-handed pitcher Chris Jones to the Orioles. Jones, 24, was pitching at Double-A Mississippi.
