Hanley Ramirez hit an RBI single off reliever Manny Parra in the 10th inning, and the Miami Marlins went on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 Wednesday. Ramirez's big hit came after the Marlins rallied from a one-run deficit in the ninth, when Gaby Sanchez hit a solo home run off Brewers closer John Axford to tie the game at 6. After the Brewers left a pair of runners on base on the bottom of the ninth, Parra got two quick outs to start the 10th. But he gave up a double to Donovan Solano, then Ramirez singled up the middle to give the Marlins the lead. Parra (0-3) took the loss, and Wade LeBlanc earned the win (1-0). Heath Bell pitched the 10th for his 18th save after a rough outing Tuesday. It was yet another rally for the Marlins after pinch hitter Logan Morrison tied the game in the seventh with a three-run homer off of Brewers starter Randy Wolf. The Brewers took the lead back in the bottom half of the seventh, when the Marlins intentionally walked Ryan Braun to get to...

Zack Grienke trade rumors: Cardinals, Braves and Rangers

Milwaukee Brewers ace Zack Greinke is set to be a free agent at the end of the season and it likely to be dealt before the July 31st MLB trade deadline. The 28 year old Greinke currently sports a record of 9-2 with a 3.08 ERA with 106 strikeouts in 108 innings pitched. Despite those stellar numbers Greinke was not selected for the All-Star team. ”There’s so many good starters...

Marlins going for series split in Milwaukee

The Miami Marlins were supposed to challenge for the NL East title this season, but they're well back of the division lead with half the season gone. Perhaps the addition of first baseman Carlos Lee can provide a second-half boost. With Lee expected to make his Marlins debut Thursday, Miami will try to salvage a split of this four-game series with the host Milwaukee Brewers...

Domino-effect makes Braun an ASG starter

MILWAUKEE With Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp officially out of next week's All-Star game, Braves third baseman Chipper Jones was announced to take his place. That means Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun, having finished third on the players' ballot, will officially start in the outfield for the National League. This starting nod will be Braun's fifth consecutive in All...

Pitcher Profile: Carlos Zambrano is Again a Big Zzzzzz

Heading into this fantasy season, Carlos Zambrano had all the momentum of three red bulls and a pot of coffee. Flashing a high K-rate in Spring Training and a change of scenery to the flamboyant Marlins Park had a lot of sleeper buzz going around the water cooler. And, for the first month and a half of the season, all the sleeper talk was looking pretty damn founded. Sporting an...

FanGraphs Prospect Stock Watch – 07/03/12

Matt Dominguez, 3B, Miami Marlins Current Level: AAA 2012 Top 15 Prospects Ranking: 6th Current Value: Down Dominguez was a 2007 first round draft pick and one of three prep third basemen taken in the first 12 picks of that draft – including his high school teammate Mike Moustakas. The latter player is now the regular third baseman for the Kansas City Royals while Dominguez (and...

Ozzie Guillen goes off on Marlins after loss, defends Heath Bell’s blown save

The All-Star break can’t seem to get here fast enough for the Marlins. The past month or so has been horrible for Ozzie Guillen’s squad, as they have managed only nine wins since June 1. After showing signs of life recently and putting together a short four-game winning streak, the Marlins have lost two close games in the row to the Brewers. On Tuesday night, closer Heath Bell...

Marlins Acquire Carlos Lee

Carlos Lee is heading to Miami. While the 36-year-old first baseman vetoed a trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers last week, Lee accepted a deal that sent him to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Lee is clearly on the decline, but his .286/.336/.412 line is a nice upgrade over the .236/.292/.359 line put up by Marlins’ first basemen this season. Still, the Marlins are 39-42, and currently...

Can The Bullpen Be Salvaged?

Photo: Tom Lynn/APThe Brewers’ 2012 bullpen has been a lot more like the 2010 version than the 2011 one, sadly.  Last year, especially after K-Rod was acquired, a win was a seemingly sure thing when the team reached the 7th or 8th inning with a lead.  This year, however, has brought all that stability crashing down and reminds me of how broken and jaded one can feel after a blown...

Marlines OF Stanton misses game with sore knee

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton missed Tuesday's game with the Milwaukee Brewers because of a sore right knee. The move was precautionary and shouldn't impact his first appearance in next week's All-Star game or Home Run Derby. ''We thought he would take batting practice, see how he feels, but I don't want to take any chances,'' Marlins...

New Marlin Lee, Guillen alread on same page

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Lee and Ozzie Guillen are already on the same page. "Ozzie is a good manager," Lee said before the Miami Marlins played the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday. "All he wants is for you also to play the game right. I feel the same way." The Marlins acquired Lee from the Houston Astros in a trade on Wednesday. Guillen and Lee were together...

Crazy Trade Idea: Dan Haren for Zack Greinke

'Tis the season for trade speculation.  Half-assed ideas are now the order of the day and I think I might have the king of them all. The rumor mills currently seem to think that the Angels are going to be relatively quiet at the trade deadline.  They have a lot of wants and desires, but the consensus is that they don't have the financial wiggle room to make that happen...

Greinke Wasn’t Snubbed

Yup, I said!  Zack Greinke did not deserve to be an All-Star in the 2012!  I know, his numbers (entering Sunday) may say otherwise as he was 9-2 with a 2.82 ERA.  Most years, those digits put you in line with a Cy-Young award…this year is different. Zack Greinke (MIL) – 9-3/2.82 ERA/1.167 WHIP/102 innings/102 SO/22 BB Tony La Russa (yes, even typing that name bothers me...

Ozzie Guillen: ‘How about the rest of the (bleeps)?’

It has been a few weeks since the last vulgar tirade from Miami Marlins’ manger Ozzie Guillen, and let’s just say that he defintely filled the void last night after the Marlins lost 13-12 to the Brewers. To set the stage for you, the Marlins held a modest 2-0 lead before Anibel Sanchez was ripped, [...]
