TEAMS: Miami Marlins
The Marlins have come up with something that they are referring to as a “home run feature.” After seeing the below video we are not fully convinced that this is a feature which should instead be used at Disneyland and used every time the ‘Tea Cups’ ride starts.

Buck dishes on facing former teammates

It’s that awkward moment when a catcher digs in to face a pitcher he used to catch. Such was the case for Marlins catcher John Buck in the seventh inning of Sunday’s 5-1 win over the Rays when he found himself facing Burke Badenhop, who the Marlins traded for minor league catcher Jake Jeffries in the offseason. Buck drew a one-out walk against the right-hander, who threw 63 2...

The Miami Marlins home run machine thingy

Wait no longer The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived. Those who have spent the last few months dreaming of how the Miami Marlins home run contraption would come to technicolor life, wait no longer. Drink it in, Marlins fans. It. Is. Breathtaking. My only question: why shooting water streams on only one side of this stunning monument?

Johnson lead Marlins on mound and at-bat

Josh Johnson had a productive day on the mound and at the plate, leading the Miami Marlins to a 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday. Miami's opening-day starter, Johnson pitched five scoreless innings, allowing three hits and striking out four, but he walked five. He threw 79 pitches, 45 for strikes.

Miami Marlins home run feature is as phenomenally tacky as you imagined

That’s more garish than the inside of Liberace’s walk-in closet. What you just witnessed is firsthand proof that the monstrosity known as the Miami Marlins home run feature is fully operational.  The whole thing defies description, but I’ll do my best to break it down. Two marlins chase each other in a circle while a third marlin playfully backflips atop the structure, albeit...

Marlins new home run celebration is up and running

The Miami Marlins atrocious home run feature is now functional. When the gif of this leaked last fall, I thought it was absolutely absurd and hideous. Now that I see the real thing, I feel it’s even worse. Maybe it’ll be one of those things that’s so bad, it’s good, like Taco Bell. Then again, if you’re attending a Marlins’ game, you might just want to bring some seizure meds.

Kearns' bat still hot but Marlins come up short

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Felix Doubrant helped his cause for a spot in Boston's rotation, allowing a run on five hits in six innings and leading a Red Sox split squad to a 4-1 win over the Florida Marlins on Saturday. The left-hander threw 78 pitches, 53 for strikes, and lowered his ERA this spring to 2.70. Austin Kearns hit his third home run for the Marlins, a drive that traveled...

Wezen-Ball: Miami's Sound Test by Larry Granillo

As the comments on my last post prove, a clear issue with the video released Monday of the new Miami Marlins home run sculpture coming to life was the lack of stadium celebration music being played in the background. Without it, we weren't getting the full "Marlins Park experience" with their brand new, beyond-unique home run feature. I heard your complaints and...

Edwin Rodriguez doesn’t just throw bombs anymore, he’s a skilled boxer-puncher

In less than a full year, undefeated super middleweight Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriguez has turned into a ring chameleon, capable of brawling or boxing, pending the situation and, of course, particular opponent. In his recent (Mar. 17) HBO debut at Madison Square Garden, Rodriguez (21-0, 14 KOs) captured the United States Boxing Association ("USBA") super middleweight...

Wezen-Ball: The Miami Home Run Machine by Larry Granillo

This video has been making the rounds this morning, but that's only because it is the greatest thing ever: For those who don't know, this is the new home run structure the Miami Marlins have installed in centerfield of their new ballpark. Every time Giancarlo Stanton or Hanley Ramirez or any other Marlin hits a home run, the structure will perform the dance you...
