Marlins rumors: Miami wants to add right-handed hitter

The Marlins still want Justin Bour to receive playing time against lefties, though. Though the Marlins seem open to giving first baseman Justin Bour routine starting time against left-handed pitchers, the club is still seeking a right-handed hitter to add depth to its bench, according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

2016 Marlins Season Review: Tom Koehler

Tom Koehler didn’t have his best season for the Marlins in 2016, but he did provide a durable arm for a Marlins rotation that saw many starters spent time on the disabled list (Koehler didn’t spend any time on the DL last season). Koehler was an important part of the Marlins rotation when Miami placed two pitchers on the disabled list in August. Without Adam Conley and Wei...

Marlins to try left-handed Bour vs. southpaws

A right high ankle sprain cost Justin Bour two months of his 2016 season and limited the left-handed-hitting first baseman to just 90 games.

Miami Marlins: Which Edinson Volquez will they get?

Replacing him is impossible, but the Marlins are doing their best to get what they can find. Their first major signing of the offseason was 33-year-old Dominican Edinson Volquez. At certain times, he looks...

Many, many years ago the old west was littered with once horse towns. This made travel problematic. With one horse you were destined to stand in endless lines waiting to get where you were going. Then again what's the point of living in a one horse town? You might as well just walk to a town with multiple horses. Or maybe you could take the horse to a town with more horses and trade...

Miami Marlins add two bullpen arms

Word around baseball was that the Miami Marlins were in the hunt for a big name closer to solidify the back of their bullpen. Adding Kenley Jansen or Aroldis Chapman to an already strong bullpen would significantly take the burden of a starting rotation who projects to be sub-par this upcoming season.

Moises Alou thought we’d stop talking about Steve Bartman by now

If you thought Steve Bartman’s name would disappear from the baseball world once the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, you were (sadly) straight-up wrong. And former Cubs outfielder Moises Alou is one of those people. Alou, the left fielder that Bartman made contact with on the foul ball at Wrigley Field in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS, told the media on Monday how he was “very...

Miami Marlins want a closer, but have bigger needs

The Miami Marlins are in the market for a closer this week at MLB’s Winter Meetings. This is a bit surprising, considering AJ Ramos has saved 72 games for the club over the last two years while striking out 160 hitters in 134 1/3 innings. It’s even more surprising when you hear that the Marlins are considering throwing stupid money at one of the top closers on the market. ...

How Can We Help Andrew Cashner Bounce Back?

Andrew Cashner just signed a one-year deal with the Rangers, the kind of deal you might call a pillow contract, an opportunity for Cashner to bounce back and get on the market with better numbers behind him.
