Now that our great city is pretty much done riding the wave of the Heat’s run to a championship, it goes without saying that all eyes will be on the Marlins. With the poor way the Marlins have been playing for the month of June, those eyes will now be looking for answers to a few questions. And if those questions aren’t answered to the satisfaction of fans, it may put a serious strain on this franchise being able to sell all of us consumers on the direction that this team is going for the rest of this season and beyond – even with the new stadium in place. First, for those that weren’t giving 100% focus to the team during the Heat run, the question would have to be “What happened?” For these fans, the last focused glimpses of the team were a soaring bunch that was able to be tied for first place. Now, they are in last place and continuing to plummet downward faster than an anvil in a cartoon. A lot of us would answer that this is the result of a combination of things. The main reaso...

Marlins try to rebound from disappointing loss

When the St. Louis Cardinals seemed to be reverting back to the offensive struggles that plagued them recently, they exploded in the late innings to surprise the troubled Miami Marlins in the series opener. With the stingy Kyle Lohse on the hill, they may have a good chance to extend their winning streak to a season-best five Tuesday night at Marlins Park. St. Louis' lineup...

Phillies-Marlins Preview

The Miami Marlins are hoping a win over the defending World Series champions will help them turn a corner. The last-place Philadelphia Phillies would love to see Cliff Lee - still in search of his first win - put his recent struggles behind him.
