Yesterday’s loss wasn’t disappointing in my mind.  The Pirates didn’t necessarily lose the series yesterday, they lost it in game one.  There is no shame in losing to Jose Fernandez.  Henderson Alvarez on the other hand…. I heard a lot about how the Marlins are one of the best teams in baseball lately, how the…

Jose Fernandez impresses with Marlins rookie record 13 Ks

MIAMI-- Jose Fernandez appeared on the verge of his first major-league career complete game. Sure, the Miami Marlins had been very protective of their All-Star with the golden arm, saying the rookie's season would end after he throws 150-170 innings. But on Sunday, Fernandez had struck out 13 Pirates through eight innings 13 Ks! Plus, Pittsburgh had managed just five hits and...

Jose Fernandez records 13 K's, wins duel with Gerrit Cole

MIAMI Jose Fernandez appeared on the verge of his first major-league career complete game. Sure, the Miami Marlins had been very protective of their All-Star with the golden arm, saying the rookie's season would end after he throws 150-170 innings. But on Sunday, Fernandez had struck out 13 Pirates through eight innings 13 Ks! Plus, Pittsburgh had managed just five hits and...

Marlins' Jose Fernandez, Steve Cishek share NL weekly honor

A day after teaming up to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez and closer Steve Cishek were named co-winners of the National League Player of the Week Award on Monday. Fernandez went 2-0 with a 2.40 ERA during the week. He allowed two runs and five hits in both starts -- seven innings at Colorado on Tuesday night and eight innings against Pittsburgh on Sunday...

Fernandez sets single-game rookie club strikeout mark

At some point in his managerial tenure with the Marlins Mike Redmond won't struggle with decisions like the one he made Sunday. Jose Fernandez will trot in after the eighth at 97 pitches and the thought of him not going out for the ninth will be absurd. That day wasn't Sunday but it didn't detract from the 20-year-old Fernandez's latest jaw-dropping performance....

Jose Fernandez strikes out 13 as Marlins down Pirates

MIAMI (AP) Jose Fernandez had a team rookie record 13 strikeouts in a pitching duel with Gerrit Cole, and the Miami Marlins beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Sunday. Fernandez (7-5) allowed five hits and two runs in eight innings. The 20-year-old All-Star right-hander walked none and threw 97 pitches, 74 for strikes. Cole (5-4) was nearly as good. The rookie allowed three runs and...

Puig, Fernandez lead NL-heavy 'Rookie Watch'

For this year only, perhaps the Major League Baseball powers-that-be should abandon the concept of selecting Rookie of the Year recipients for the American and National leagues ... and just roll with two trophies for the best players regardless of affiliation. For whatever reason, the 2013 rookie chase is heavily slanted toward the Senior Circuit stars, so much that not a single...

Marlins Continue Homestand with Mets

The Miami Marlins are coming off of a series in which they took two of three from the wild card-leading Pittsburgh Pirates. Henderson Alvarez picked up his first win as a member of the Miami Marlins while Giancarlo Stanton grabbed the team lead in home runs and RBIs during the series. The Marlins are off [...]

Game 103: Pirates vs. Marlins Recap

Source: FanGraphs The Pirates just kind of asked for this. They came into the series knowing that they were facing a team with over 60 losses. They also knew that a five game series with the Cardinals was behind it. Losing to Henderson Alvarez on Friday night just set up for a series loss with…

Marlins 3, Pirates 2

The Pirates lost the game and the series on Sunday as Jose Fernandez out-dueled Gerrit Cole in a battle of terrific young pitchers. Cole had an impressive outing. He gave the Bucs seven innings, allowed just four hits and two walks, and struck out a career-high eight. He looked at ease for the most part and wasn’t challenged much, but still ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard...

Marlins Win the Battle of the Young Aces; Wandy and Snider Updates

Gerrit Cole was good today, but Jose Fernandez was better. (Photo Credit: David Hague) Gerrit Cole vs Jose Fernandez. That was the matchup today. One was a first overall pick in the 2011 draft. The other was taken 13 picks later. Both have progressed to the point where they look like they could be future number one starters. Unfortunately for the Pirates, Fernandez looks like he...

Game 103: Marlins 3 Pirates 2

There are plenty of ways to talk about this game; one is to say that the Pirates lost two of three to the Marlins, who are generally pretty terrible and have the NL's worst record. Another would be to point out that since June 8th, the Marlins are 23-19, which is the NL East's best record in that span. You can point to all of the strikeouts (13 at the hands of rookie Jose...
