Marlins will allow players to grow facial hair following ban last season

When Don Mattingly took over as manager of the Miami Marlins before last season, a ban on facial hair was put in place.But so many players complained about it that Mattingly decided to lift the ban, and so beards and mustaches will be permitted this season.“It was a constant fight last year, honestly, with guys,” Mattingly said, per Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.“It just...

Christian Yelich Is an Under-the-Radar NL MVP Candidate in 2017

Making a name for yourself in the Miami Marlins outfield in recent years hasn’t been all that easy, but Christian Yelich has found a way to carve out some attention for himself in South Beach. Probably not enough yet, though. It’s tough when Giancarlo Stanton grabs headlines every time he punishes a baseball, or when Marcell Ozuna‘s name is either swirling in trade rumors or...

Watch radio host literally eat crow after losing bet to Christian Yelich

Brendan Tobin, a host on Miami’s 790-AM The Ticket, can breathe a big sigh of relief after making good on his bet with Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich. And what Tobin was forced to do after losing said bet was tough to swallow, to say the least.The wager between Tobin and Yelich was made last August.

Miami radio host will literally eat crow after losing bet over Christian Yelich

The Miami Marlins fell to .500 after a tough loss against the Washington Nationals on Thursday. The game was largely uneventful for Miami as three errors and just four mediocre innings from Tom Koehler led to the defeat. One of the Marlins runs’ came from a Christian Yelich solo homer in the seventh. Insignificant, right? Wrong. With Yelich’s 20th home run, Miami radio host Brendan...

Marlins OF jabs Dolphins WR for kneeling during anthem

There was some Miami professional athlete-on-athlete crime on Sunday. Kenny Stills was one of four Dolphins players to take a knee during the national anthem prior to the Dolphins’ game with the Seahawks Sunday, following a trend started by Colin Kaepernick during the preseason. During the game, Stills made a major mistake when he dropped a long bomb that should have gone for...

Christian Yelich Has More of His Angles Covered

The consistency of Christian Yelich throughout his first three major-league seasons, each with identical wRC+ figures of 118, was both promising and, in some ways, perhaps maddening. On the one hand, a hitter with a 118 wRC+ is a good hitter. Especially at such a young age. On the other hand, Yelich has been a ground-ball machine, and with his 6-foot-4 frame, the adjustment to bump...

WATCH: Royals’ Jarrod Dyson makes ridiculous catch to rob a homer

Kansas City Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson provided a catch of the year candidate on Thursday night when he became the first player to ever rob a homer at Marlins Park. Miami’s Christian Yelich crushed one to deep center field, and appeared to have his 16th dinger of the season, but Dyson ran 98 feet before climbing the wall to make this absurd catch: Just ridiculous, @mrzoombiya...

Christian Yelich Is Starting to Soar

You know who’s figuring it out? Christian Yelich! Not that Yelich ever didn’t have it figured out — his big-league career began with three consecutive 117 wRC+ seasons. He was as steady as anyone you could find, but he kept on occasionally hinting at more, and now he’s showing more more often. He’s 24, and he’s being coached by Barry Bonds. People everywhere kind of saw...
