Tune into FOX Sports Florida at 6:30 p.m. to watch the Miami Marlins take on the Philadelphia Phillies. The Miami Marlins underwent an offseason full of upgrades, but the positive results may not be coming as quickly as they anticipated. One of the new additions will try to help them get on track. Mark Buehrle takes the mound for Miami when it tries to avoid a second straight loss to the host Philadelphia Phillies in the finale of a three-game series Thursday night. A new ballpark, a name change and multiple new players haven't provided immediate satisfaction for the Marlins (2-4), especially after new manager Ozzie Guillen's controversial remarks regarding Cuban dictator Fidel Castro landed him in hot water with the local community. Guillen began serving a five-game suspension Wednesday during Miami's 7-1 loss to the Phillies. He apologized to his players prior to the game for causing a distraction. "It was good to see him here," said closer Heath Bell,...

A muted Ozzie does Marlins no good

You don't have to know Ozzie Guillen well to understand there is nothing inauthentic about him. He is exactly who he purports to be, which has always been part of his appeal, maybe even part of his ability as a baseball manager. He is one of the few truly unfiltered personalities left in sports, and the Miami Marlins understood this last year when they started negotiating with...

Johnson Knocked Around By Phillies

The Miami Marlins fell to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday by a score of 7-1 as Josh Johnson had one of the worst starts of his career.   The loss dropped the Marlins to 2-4 on the year and came in a game that was expected to be a pitchers duel with Roy Halladay starting for the Phillies.    Joey Cora managed the team in the first of five games that Ozzie Guillen will...

Series Dropped in Philly

Ozzie’s Comments Make Long Odds of Miami Baseball Even Longer

Ozzie Guillen makes stupid and inappropriate statements. I don’t think there is any way to sugarcoat his behavior over the course of his managerial career. He’s publically supported Cuban dictator Fidel Castro before his recent comments. In addition, he’s used homophobic slurs against a Chicago reporter, spoken out against Arizona’s immigration laws, and spurned a visit...

Miami Marlins Skipper Ozzie Guillen sincere, apologetic

There are two sides to every coin. Some issues are blurred within the grey area, others taken from context and warped by the media. In this case, oft-outspoken Miami Marlins Coach Ozzie Guillen had another foot in the mouth moment. This one really stung. A flurry of expletives or a hail of insults is one thing, but angering a massive populace in which the reinvigorated...

The Phils explodes for seven runs in support of a five-hit effort by their ace Roy Halladay, as they defeated the Marlins, 7-1. The Marlins took the lead in the second as, with a runner on third, and with one man out, Josh Johnson hits an RBI ground out, 4-3, knocking in Omar Infante, who had earlier doubled, then moved up to third base on John Buck’s fly out to right, giving...

Mets Never Saw Reyes As Longterm Investment, Cautious Wright May Be Injury Prone

Andy Martino of the Daily News may have opened up a can of worms this morning with a couple of quotes in which he matter of factly states the following: As the Daily News reported in February, the Mets hope that Wright will justify another multi-year commitment, and remain the face of their franchise for years. The team’s outlook on Wright differs dramatically from their view...
