PLAYERS: Logan Morrison
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
    Logan Morrison and the Miami Marlins haven’t had the best of relationships in recent times.

Marlins Bring Back Five

Logan Morrison will switch to number five in 2012, a number never worn by a Marlin.   This number is significant to Morrison because it is the number worn by his father’s favorite player — George Brett.   The Marlins since starting play in 1993 have had the number retired to honor the first President in franchise history, Carl Barger. Tragically, Mr. Barger passed away before...

Miami Marlins: Hanley Ramirez responds to critics in Powerade commercial

  The advertising folks at Powerade seized on the hubbub surrounding Hanley Ramirez’s move to third base.

Yoenis Cespedes will bring more than just power to the Miami Marlins

There are two sides of the coin to any situation. There are yin’s and yang’s to the MLB value of CF Yoenis Cespedes, a Cuban defector who smashed the competition in the World Baseball Classic. Miami Marlins President David Samson has made no secret that the front office desires CF Yoenis Cespedes to be their everyday center fielder and is pursuing a deal aggressively...

MLB Opinion: Yoenis Cespedes Can Be an Impact Player in the Bigs

The latest rumor in the Yoenis Cespedes sweepstakes has the Miami Marlins offering less than $40 million for the Cuban defector.

Cespedes can not sign a contract until he is unblocked by OFAC (Office of Foreign Asset Control) and the list of additional...

Miami Marlins: Ozzie Guillen says Yoenis Cespedes no sure thing
