The Marlins season will begin without an organist

Some things, you just can't make up. The Miami Marlins home opener is tonight, and in Clark Spencer's notebook for the Miami Herald heading into year two of Marlins Park, he reveals that the team hasn't hired an organist yet this season. Seriously. • There will be no organist, at least initially. The Marlins held tryouts for an organist but couldn’t find one to...

Fernandez Sparkles, Pen Fizzles

The Major League debut of Jose Fernandez went about as well as the Miami Marlins could have hoped until he left the game.   The phenom set a Marlins record by striking out eight batters in his debut.  Unfortunately with a pitch limit in place, Fernandez was lifted after five innings and it all went downhill from there.  At the end of the day, the New York Mets came away 4-3 winners...

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...

Marlins appreciate fan support in home opener

MIAMI Opening night 2013 at Marlins Park began with a festive nod to the franchises first 20 years. The Miami Marlins ended the evening by creating more excitement, only to fall short. In the second home opener at their domed home, the Marlins lost to the Atlanta Braves 2-0 on Monday night. The game took only 2:33, largely because both starting pitchers Miamis Kevin Slowey and...

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...

If by chance you can play first base, the Miami Marlins want to talk to you

The Miami Marlins are dealing with a brash of injuries. Most of which are to players that can play first base.In the past month, the Marlins have had to place both Joe Mahoney and Casey Kotchman on the 15-day DL, so on Friday the Marlins found themselves short on first basemen. So in response, they held open tryouts before the team took batting practice in an attempt to find a warm...

Welcome to the Bigs, Kid: Jose Fernandez

In the 2013 debut edition of Welcome to the bigs, kid we will be profiling and discussing him and his debut outing. Also as always we will be...

Fans angry as Marlins begin 2nd year in ballpark

As the Miami Marlins begin year two in their ballpark Monday, they're back to operating in obscurity. Given the dismal outlook this season, that may be just as well. Thousands of empty seats are likely for the home opener against the Atlanta Braves, with a succession of small crowds to follow. Many potential ticket buyers are disenchanted because owner Jeffrey Loria has reverted...

The sad state of the Miami Marlins explained by one amazing graphic

Does anything exemplify the mess that is the Miami Marlins better than this graphic? The New York Mets played a three-game series with the Marlins over the weekend, winning two of the games. Their TV broadcaster, SNY, shared the amazing graphic seen above. SNY says the Marlins’ home run sculpture cost more money to build than nearly everyone on the team’s roster is being paid...

Braves-Marlins Preview

The Miami Marlins generated baseball's biggest buzz as they prepared for their home opener a year ago, anticipating a playoff bid and nearly nightly sellout crowds in a futuristic new home that was supposed to transform a franchise long accustomed to attracting little attention. As the Marlins begin year two in their ballpark, they're back to operating in obscurity. Given...

A Running Folly

For as much as John Buck was a huge factor in Saturday's 7-3 victory over the Marlins, so was Juan Pierre. And their paths collided on multiple occasions during the game ... between Pierre bobbling Buck's two run double, and Pierre's baffling interference call when he collided with Buck well into foul territory after scoring a run, this was the kind of game that makes...
