PLAYERS: Logan Morrison
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
After suffering through one of the toughest stretches of his big league career, Logan Morrison is finally starting to look like the talented youngster expected to be a perennial All Star. Morrison hit just .163 with two home runs and seven RBIs over 35 games from May 1 through June 8 of this season. His batting average plummeted from a healthy .310 on April 30 to a dismal .214 by the end of the stretch, earning Morrison a spot on the bench by the end of it. And it looks like the unspecified benching may have had exactly the type...

Logan Morrison Feels Boston Should Be Proud of Fenway Park, Doesn't Heed Fans' Advice to 'Take the Night Off'

Logan Morrison had been crushing Red Sox pitching all night as he prepared for another trip to the dish in the seventh inning. The Marlins cleanup hitter was already 3-for-3 from the plate with a home run, two doubles and all five Miami RBIs as he approached the on-deck circle for the fourth time on the evening. And that's when loyal Red Sox fans really let him have it. As he...

Red Sox Pitching Must Tread Carefully With Logan Morrison Playing Out of His Mind for No Reason (Video)

The Marlins probably knew coming in to Tuesday night's game that Mark Buehrle would have to pitch around Kelly Shoppach. After all, the Red Sox catcher has eye-popping numbers against him. The Red Sox, however, likely had no idea to stay away from Logan Morrison. And somehow, the Marlins outfielder has managed to make Clay Buchholz's life awfully difficult on Tuesday night...

Omar Infante Is Back To Being Omar Infante

For the first month of the season, Omar Infante was one of the best hitters in baseball – especially at the 2nd base position. During April, Infante hit .324 with 5 HR’s, 14 R’s and strangely enough only 7 RBI’s. Still, even with his low RBI totals, Infante was owned in 100% of ESPN leagues and seemed like a waiver steal. Then in May, Infante became a different player. He...

Owner insists Marlins will be fine

The Marlins are off to a 33-34 start, but owner Jeffrey Loria isn't panicking. "People should relax," he said Tuesday. "We're going to be fine. It's going to be one hell of a run." Loria said he's convinced the Marlins have plenty of time to get their offense going, pointing out that there are more than three months left in the season and the...

Fish Fall Under .500

Mark Buehrle was roughed up in Fenway Park on Tuesday as the Miami Marlins fell 7-5 to the Boston Red Sox.   The loss moved the Marlins under the .500 mark for the first time since May.   The loss also put Miami at 4-11 in June as they continue to slide back for the second consecutive June.    With the Philadelphia Phillies winning, the Marlins are now only two games ahead...

Marlins visit Fenway Park

Marlins visit Fenway Park Tuesday June 19, 2012- Miami Marlins visit Fenway Park to begin a 3 game series against the Boston Red Sox. The two teams met earlier last week in which the Sox took 2 games away from the Marlins. The pitching matchup for tonight’s game is exactly the same as a week ago; Clay Buchholz vs. Mark Buehrle take the mound in tonight’s opening game. The Marlins...

Red Sox May Have More Experience Than Marlins When It Comes to Playing in Nasty Heat

When 96-degree heat settled on Fenway Park for the start of Wednesday night's game, you would think the advantage would go to the baseball club from Miami. But the Marlins, who are enjoying their first year in a new stadium that came equipped with a dome, have been able to shirk sweltering temperatures at most points this year. "When we're in Miami, we have a roof -...

Everything Was HOT for the Sox Last Night Verses Marlins

On the hottest day of the season so far at Fenway Park, the ball seemed to be flying out of the park and that added to the Red Sox offense hitting, hitting and hitting their way to a win over the struggling Marlins.  The Sox scored 15 runs, Felix Doubront got his 8th win of the season and the Sox went 2 games over 500.  Oh and every other team in the AL East lost last night too...

Most Compelling Matchup of Red Sox-Marlins Series Features Unlikely Duo of Opponents (Video)

The Red Sox welcome the Miami Marlins to Fenway Park on Tuesday, which means the Sox will have to deal with some very difficult matchups.

.500 Red Sox Come Home for Encore with .500 Marlins

  The Sox return to Fenway tonight for another series against the Miami Marlins.  Last week Boston took two of three from the Fish down in Florida.  And after winning two more from the Cubs in Chicago over the weekend, the Red Sox come home having been victorious in 4 of their last 5 games. [...]

Marlins rely on Nolasco against Red Sox

Tune into FOX Sports Florida at 6:30 p.m. to watch the Miami Marlins take on the Boston Red Sox. The Boston Red Sox would be satisfied if the venue is the only thing different for Felix Doubront in this week's start against Miami. They'd be devastated if Dustin Pedroia aggravated the same thumb injury he suffered last month. Facing the sputtering Marlins for the second...

Buehrle ready for rematch vs. Buchholz, BoSox

Tune into FOX Sports Florida at 6:30 p.m. to watch the Miami Marlins take on the Boston Red Sox. Boston Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz extended his string of superb outings last week by outdueling the Miami Marlins' Mark Buehrle. Buchholz will get the chance to try to pull off that feat again Tuesday night when Buehrle and the Marlins begin a three-game series at Fenway...

Recap: Red Sox and Marlins trade punches, Sox prevail

(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images) This was nothing close to the duel between Buehrle and Buchholz from last week. The Marlins struck first, but the Red Sox threw the last punch and came out on top with the 7-5 victory. I expected another pitchers duel after the last meeting these two pitchers had exactly a week ago. Instead each offense figured these guys out and started the scoring...

Marlins Look to Turn Tables on Red Sox

By The Miami Marlins, maybe the streakiest team in baseball this season, will be looking to reverse their recent fortunes, and those of us who have been backing them with our MLB picks, when they begin an interleague series with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park Tuesday night. Miami went 8-14 in April, then 21-8 in May, but is just 4-11 so far in June, after dropping...
