Carlos Zambrano had his worst start as a member of the Miami Marlins thus far in Wednesday’s 6-3 loss to the Houston Astros.    The loss is insignificant but the worrisome part was the five walks allowed by Zambrano.   With only one start to go before the regular season, the veteran will look to turn things around against the New York Yankees at Marlins Park in five days. The Marlins had hoped for Zambrano to work deep into the game but due to his wildness, he was only able to last four innings.    The Astros also put together three runs on five hits against Zambrano.   Beau Jones did not fare any better out of the bullpen allowing three runs in only one inning of work.   Jones will not make the team but may serve as pitching depth in the minor leagues.  Wade LeBlanc worked a scoreless inning of relief, and remains a question mark for an Opening Night roster spot.  While his Spring warrants a spot, the team may opt to option him to AAA where he can work as a starter.   Edward Mujica...

Logan Morrison implies the Marlins’ new home run feature will give you a seizure

Marlins’ outfielder Logan Morrison is known for his twitter antics, which got him demoted to the minor league last season. Today he commented on the team’s controversial home run feature that is basically a conglomeration of moving fish and flashing rainbow colors. Seizure or not, this thing is an embarrassment.

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 took...

Today, I watched mostly the Low-A game between the Marlins and Mets — or, alternately, the Greensboro...

Beltran's homer not enough for Cardinals

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Anibal Sanchez put to rest any questions about the Miami Marlins' rotation. Sanchez allowed a run in five innings, including Carlos Beltran's second homer, and the Miami Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 Thursday. Sanchez had been limited to three starts this spring because of a sore shoulder. He gave up two hits and a walk. Matt Holliday walked...
