Kevin Slowey received run support on Thursday but it was not enough to give him his first win of the year as the Miami Marlins fell to the Chicago Cubs by a final of 4-3.   Slowey was in a position to win entering the sixth inning but allowed the tying run.   The Marlins are now 5-17 on the season and continue to be able to string two or more wins together.   Despite only being 22 games into the year, Miami is already 10.5 games behind first in the division. Slowey has a 2.43 E.R.A after a six inning three run effort in this game but that quality start only kept him with the same win-less record.   Slowey struck out six and walked none while allowing five hits.  Prior to this start, Miami had given Slowey a total of one run of support in his four starts.   Chad Qualls and Mike Dunn kept the game tied in the seventh and eighth but in the ninth, the Cubs took the lead on closer Steve Cishek.   The loss was tagged to Cishek who is now 1-3 on the season. Miami did the most with his six ...

Marlins owner fiddling with lineup?

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria reportedly overrode manager Mike Redmond's plan for who would pitch in the team's doubleheader against the Twins this week.

Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria Reportedly Meddled With Starting Rotation, Drawing Ire of Miami Clubhouse

There may be no man in baseball more roundly hated by fans, players and team personnel than Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria. Not only has the team’s miserable production on the field (5-17 as of Friday, the worst mark in the majors) caused fans to avoid state-of-the-art Marlins Park like the plague, Loria’s seeming desire to control every aspect of his organization is continuing...

Miami Marlins ‘higher ups’ are now making decisions on who should pitch and when they should pitch

You don’t need a reminder that the Miami Marlins is arguably one of the worst run organizations in sports. Between threatening to sue long-time season ticket holders and trying to get a player to buy house in Miami just two days before trading him, the Marlins have being a horrible organization down to a science.But on Tuesday, the “higher ups” in the Marlins organization decided...

Report: Jeffrey Loria getting involved where he shouldn’t

In old and completely beaten into the ground news, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is an idiot. This time, though, it is from overruling his General Manager and Manager and dictating on the field lineup changes. Wait, the owner is doing this, you ask. Yes, the owner. The same scumbag who ruined the once proud Montreal Expos only to get a free pass and somehow be allowed to ruin another...

Marlins owner denies lineup tampering

Did Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria personally instruct his baseball staff to flip-flop starting pitchers in a doubleheader Tuesday against the Twins? Yes, according to a report by Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports. No, according to Loria. "I had nothing to do with the decision," Loria told on Friday. "I was informed of the decision by the baseball department...

Cubs-Marlins Preview

After finally breaking out of their season-long offensive funk, the Miami Marlins hope to build off that effort as they open a four-game series against the Chicago Cubs. The Marlins will try to win consecutive games for the first time and give Kevin Slowey his first win in the majors since 2010 on Thursday night when they host a battle between last-place clubs. While Miami enters...

Cishek gives up HR in ninth, Marlins fall to Cubs

MIAMI (AP) -- Luis Valbuena hit a tie-breaking solo home run in the ninth inning to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Thursday night. The Marlins fell to 5-17 which matches the worst start in franchise history through 22 games according to STATS. Miami had the same record in 1995. Shawn Camp (1-1) pitched the eighth and Carlos Marmol got the final three...

Giancarlo Stanton Hates April

Giancarlo Stanton is off to a slow start. The Miami Marlins are, too, which is anything but a surprise. With the second lowest payroll in the Bigs, they are a rebuilding team, coming off a fire sale this offseason. Stanton, by far the most talented player left on this team, ended 2012 in an impressive fashion. In the final 21 games of the season, he launched 8 home runs, 3 doubles...

Cubs Take Another

The Marlins Marlins were beaten by the Chicago Cubs 4-2 on Friday in a game they trailed from the start.  Chicago has now taken the first two of the series and Miami has 18 losses on the year to go along with only five wins.   That record puts the Marlins on pace for the worst record in Major League Baseball history.   Currently, it’s good enough for worst this season in MLB...

Marlins struggle at plate, fall to Cubs

MIAMI (AP) -- Anthony Rizzo had two home runs and four RBIs to power the Cubs to a 4-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday night, giving Chicago back-to-back wins for the first time this season. Rizzo's second career two-home run game gave him eight on the season, the most by a Cubs left-handed hitter in April. Billy Williams (1970) and Henry Rodriguez (2000) each hit seven...

Zone% by Batting Order Position

Giancarlo Stanton is struggling and Giancarlo Stanton’s teammates are terrible. These two things are true. These two might be related. It would make sense that these things are related, because the drop-off from Giancarlo Stanton to the guys hitting behind his is absurdly larger. Stanton has played in 16 games this season, and has hit third in all 16 of those games. The cleanup...
