Found September 24, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Miami Marlins are back to using a five-man rotation. Left-hander Wade LeBlanc threw an inning of relief on Friday night, signaling the end of Miami's six-man rotation. LeBlanc had been slated to start Tuesday at Atlanta. Right-hander Nathan Eovaldi will start that day, as the rest of the rotation is moved up a day. With the six-man rotation, pitching coach Randy St. Claire said he thought the starting pitchers struggled to stay sharp because they started once a week. Right-hander Ricky Nolasco started Sunday and allowed just two runs on five hits in seven innings before the Marlins lost 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Marlins are off Monday before opening a three-game series at Atlanta. Eovaldi starts Tuesday, Josh Johnson on Wednesday and Jacob Turner on Thursday.

Bell wants to win back closer role for 2013

Marlins try to avoid sweep against Mets

As awful as the second half of the season has been for the New York Mets, playing the Miami Marlins has brought out the best in them. David Wright hopes facing Ricky Nolasco continues to do the same for him. The one team the Mets have swept over the past three months is Miami, and they could do it again Sunday as the slumping Wright takes on a pitcher he's dominated. New York...

Heath Bell Hints That It's 'Hard to Respect' Ozzie Guillen, Calls First Season Under Manager 'Interesting'

It's probably safe to assume most Marlins fans aren't happy with Heath Bell or Ozzie Guillen. Apparently, things aren't so rosy between the two, either. Guillen, of course, has been and likely always will be a rather opinionated manager, and Bell isn't too thrilled with how the Miami skipper has been operating during a disappointing season for the Fish. "It&...

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Edwin Rodriguez, Vic Darchinyan And Alexander Povetkin

A relatively quiet schedule this week, with a strange HBO show and not much else. The strangeness at HBO is a prospect-oriented tripleheader, reportedly the leftovers from an aborted attempt to establish a ShoBox competitor. Apart from that, things are thin, with only heavyweight Alexander Povetkin’s deplorable fight with the shell of Hasim Rahman really worth mentioning, and...

MLB Rumors: Miami Marlins Becoming The Boston Red Sox Of The National League?

They suffered one of the biggest collapses in professional sports history last season, fired a good manager, hired a bad manager, traded away half the team and still go on the record publicly about how unhappy everyone in the organization is with each other.
