It has happened to some of the best players in baseball over the years, so there is nothing Ozuna should be ashamed of. Well, maybe a little bit. The thing that made the ball Ozuna lost track of so unique is that it flew over the fence for a home run. Apparently he thought San Diego’s Will Venable got under the ball a bit when he made contact, but it wound up landing several rows deep into the right field bleachers. Ozuna fooled everyone by camping under the ball — or so he thought — for a solid six seconds before realizing what had happened. As this Giants outfielder could tell us, losing a home run ball in the lights is hardly the worst thing in the world.

Marlins battle early season injuries, adversity

Marlins Tarp Upper Section of New Ballpark Due to Low Attendance

Early yesterday, we reported how in just the second year of a new ballpark, the Miami Marlins were on pace to potentially see the largest attendance drop between first and second year for a new facility. Based on dumping of player payroll after lavishing money in the 2010-11 offseason the Marlins could see a decline of more than 38 percent, which would break the record held by in...

Nick Hundley makes snide remark about Padres teammate

Nick Hundley has served as the San Diego Padres starting catcher this season, but his role could be in jeopardy once teammate Yasmani Grandal returns from his 50-game suspension later this month.Grandal, who was acquired by the Padres prior to last season from the Reds, posted solid numbers in 2012 (.297 BA, 8 HR, 36 RBI, 60 G) and many believed he was in line to be the team'...

Marlins Forced To Close Off Upper Deck Seats Due To Poor Attendance

  This news shouldn’t come as much of a shock, given the fact owner Jeffrey Loria shipped off a chunk of the team in the off season. The Marlins have the worst attendance in the National League with an average of 18,864 per game–capacity of the park is 37,442, and once the upper deck is closed capacity will be 27,000. The block off will occur for the next 6 games of a 9 game...

Ozzie Guillen wants a job

It looked like a match made in heaven a year ago when Ozzie Guillen took over as the manager for the Miami Marlins. He was a coach with the team when they last won a World Series, and him also being part of the Latino community only made it seem more natural to be the skipper with a suddenly high-priced team moving into a new stadium. But then it all fell apart. The Marlins struggled...

Offense Goes Silent
