The 24 year old outfielder was urged by the team last year to ease up on the tweeting that has gained him over 91,000 followers.

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...
The advertising folks at Powerade seized on the hubbub surrounding Hanley Ramirez’s move to third base. Panned for his less than warm reaction about Jose Reyes’ arrival and having to slide from short to third as a result, Ramirez in this Spanish ad says his peace.
The translation: To all those who sent me critical messages, I want to ask for your forgiveness for not having...
The Marlins have shown interest in Cuban prospect Yoenis Cespedes for a few months, and they reportedly have offered him a contract.
The new home of the Miami Marlins is just about ready to go, and I’m not going to lie – it looks pretty sweet. From the website:
The future home of the Marlins will be a first-class baseball stadium that will be owned by Miami-Dade County. It will be constructed on approximately 17 acres of the historic 42-acre Orange Bowl site in the Little Havana section of Miami. The ballpark...

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...
Miami Marlins third baseman Hanley Ramirez is one of the better all-around players in Major League Baseball. He was the National League’s Rookie of the Year in 2006, has been named to 3 All-Star teams, and finished 2nd in the NL MVP voting in 2009. 2011 was one to forget with Hanley posting [...]
The latest rumor in the Yoenis Cespedes sweepstakes has the Miami Marlins offering less than $40 million for the Cuban defector. While Cespedes has yet to negotiate with any other teams, a $40 million price tag seems reasonable for 6 years for the 26 year old. Cespedes can not sign a contract until he is unblocked by OFAC (Office of Foreign Asset Control) and the list of additional...
It doesn’t appear as though Ozzie Guillen has started scribbling lineups that include Yoenis Cespedes. Guillen is neither convinced the Marlins will land the Cuban defector nor that he’ll be an instant success in the majors.
Guillen on Friday joined Waddle & Silvy for Lunch with a Legend on ESPN 1000 in Chicago. Based on his comments, Guillen won’t be too torn up if Cespedes...
