PLAYERS: Jeffrey Loria
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
Jeffrey Loria has one heckuva sweet tooth. And a ton of disposable income. To commemorate the grand opening of Marlins Park, the carnival show masquerading as a major league ballpark, on Thursday, Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria placed a call to Divine Delicacies, an über-bakery in town that creates stunning custom cakes. Divine Delicacies certainly [...]

Clevelander Bar At Marlins Park Includes Body Painted Go-Go Dancers

Maybe one of your Miami bros was texting you last night about his “AMAZING NIGHT” at the Marlins game and telling you all about the new ballpark. How his 100 level seats were “SO F-ING AMAZING” and that there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Guess what that bro was missing out on? Body painted go-go dancers at The Clevelander, the center field trendy club that’ll cost you...

The newly anointed Miami Marlins officially ushered in a new era of baseball in Miami, opening the (stateside) 2012 Major League Baseball season at their sparkling new and extremely bright new stadium.

Offense Comes Alive in Cincy

The Miami Marlins picked up their first win of the 2012 season on Saturday as the offense put on a show in a 8-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.    After the first two games saw the Fish tally a combined seven hits and one run — questions began to pop up about the bats.  Those questions were answered in this game in a big way with three homeruns and a near cycle. Ricky Nolasco...

Buehrle strong, offense not in Marlins' loss

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jay Bruce homered and drove in a pair of runs, and Johnny Cueto dominated in his first opening-day start, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Thursday before one of their biggest crowds. Cueto (1-0) anchored the Reds' first opening-day shutout since 1980, when Frank Pastore beat Atlanta's Phil Niekro 9-0. The right-hander...

Hits and Misses: Marlins Pregame Was A Disgrace, Niese Deal Is Not A Wilpon PR Move, It’s Opening Day!

Just a couple of thoughts on that bizarre Marlins pregame ceremony and the reports of a 5-year Niese extension. What a despicable act by the Miami Marlins last night, who decided it would be a brilliant idea to wheel out the ailing boxing icon Muhammad Ali as part of their pre-game ceremonies. Sorry, but that was a terrible call, and to use someone so legendary and obviously so...

Ozzie Guillen May Or May Not Love Fidel Castro

Dugout Digest: Opening Night

Last night, the MLB officially kicked off the season....well, barring those two silly games in Japan last week. The Cardinals defeated the Marlins 4-1, with St Louis starter Kyle Lohse no hitting the hometown bunch through six innings. The Marlins would finish with just four hits, two by Jose Reyes, and no walks. Some initial thoughts from the first game at the new stadium... -Giancarlo...
