IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
During a broadcast on the YES Network yesterday, it was wrongly intimated that the Miami Marlins baseball team was forced to have violent sex with the Toronto Blue Jays, under threat of bodily harm, during a transaction that involved the stunning ejection of several star players into the lap of Canada, in exchange for many seedlings. This remark did not and does not represent the views of staff and management of YES Network. However, we do wish Lou Piniella the best of luck in his newly announced bid to capture the Republican nomination for U.S. Congress.
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s well documented that no one is really interested in attending Miami Marlins games. And though you’ll find this hard to believe, but apparently the Marlins actually have long time season holders.This is a fact that many of us wouldn’t ever care to know, but because the Marlins are reportedly threatening to sue some of those long time season tickets holders, we now care...
At this point, it seems like piling on to write about anything that the Miami Marlins do. But the last couple of days have produced a news story simultaneously hilarious and revealing: after two fans wanted to back out of the second year of a two-year season ticket contract, the Marlins threatened to sue them.
Of course, all baseball teams are businesses, owned by people or corporations...
As part of my prospect-related work for Bleacher Report’s Prospect Pipeline, I tend make a lot of GIFs. Sometimes too many for my own good. So, as an outlet, I thought that I’d start sharing some of them on the Sombrero. Today’s post features GIFs of Marlins’ prospect Christian Yelich, who’s having one helluva spring in big-league camp.

With Day 1 of the 6,456 day baseball season approaching quickly, young players are busting their asses to try to make opening day rosters, while the savvy veterans are trying just hard enough to make sure they don’t split their pants on routine fly balls. But something that we don’t hear a lot about in the MLB preseason is how the owners prepare, so I thought I’d take this...
NOT SO SWEET
Lou Piniella wanted to discuss the big Marlins/Blue Jays trade that occured this offseason and used a rather unfortunate word when making his analysis.
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Bryce Harper had two hits and drove in four runs to help the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 Wednesday.
Harper had a two-run double in the third and a two-run single in the fifth, raising his spring batting average to .400 (20-for-50) with 12 RBIs. Chris Young allowed two hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out two.

Last year at this time, the baseball blogosphere was all abuzz with the Miami Marlins new digs and why not, it had it all…a championship-caliber team, an amazing techni-color jumping fish in the outfield and a gigantic fish tank behind home plate.
A year later, I still can’t get over how colossal of a failure the whole venture was and, of course, those fish tanks.
Retired MLB manager Lou Piniella signed a deal to work as a commentator for the YES Network this year. The regular season has yet to begin, but on Wednesday we got a taste of why someone who is a little rough around the edges like Piniella may be better off in the dugout than the broadcaster’s booth.
During the third inning of a spring training game between the Boston Red Sox and...
DID YOU JUST SAY THAT?
Lou Piniella wanted to discuss the big Marlins/Blue Jays trade that occured this offseason and used a terrible word in his analysis.
