Marlins optimistic about free-agent additions

Much like holiday shoppers, the Miami Marlins made a list and checked it several times. Not too long after the organization's second 100-loss season, president of baseball operations Michael Hill, other members of the front office and coaching staff formulated a plan to improve the ballclub. It looked a lot like this: UPGRADE 1. Third baseman 2. Catcher 3. Speed 4. Offensive...

Miami Marlins president David Samson to appear on 'Survivor'

Team president David Samson will be a cast member on the upcoming season of Survivor, which was filmed last summer in the Philippines. Season 28 of Survivor, entitled Cagayan, is scheduled to premiere in February. Samson is expected to be a part of the "brains" tribe as opposed to either the "beauty...

He finished with 92 innings pitched, a 4.11 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP before going down with a strained right forearm.

Marlins, ace pitcher Jose Fernandez make cameo on 'The Bachelor'

Confession: I watch The Bachelor. I don’t really talk about it that much because let’s face it, I’m not proud. But sometimes I want to treat myself to mindless trainwreck television and The Bachelor provides just that. But I am a sports fan first and foremost. For that reason, I didn’t watch Monday night’s The Bachelor season premiere live because it was opposite the BCS...

Marlins outfielder Jake Marisnick to be prepared for Spring Training

At one point last season, the Miami Marlins were highly considering trading outfielder Justin Ruggiano to see what prospect Jake Marisnick can do both offensively and in center field. In 40 games with Miami, he batted .183 with five RBIs. Manager Mike Redmond ended Marisnick's season early after he had an apparent knee injury. The 22-year old prospect underwent surgery the day...

Offseason Outlook: Miami Marlins

Miami Marlins 2013 Record: (62-100, Last Place) Key Free Agents:  Juan Pierre It’s tough to speak kindly about the franchise that is the Miami Marlins. Coming off the joke that was unloading all the new stadium welcoming free agents they purchased the year prior, the Marlins were absolutely dreadful, as expected. Now, to be fair the franchise isn’t an embarrassment from an organizational...

Marlins Notes: Top Prospect Jake Marisnick's Rehab Almost Complete

One of the Miami Marlins' top prospects, centerfielder Jake Marisnick, is getting closer to full speed after undergoing left knee surgery.  The toolsy outfielder was shutdown during the 2013 season's final week with knee discomfort.  Once the season ended, the 22-year-old underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus and remove a piece of loose cartilage.  Joe Frisaro of...

Are the Miami Marlins primed for a breakout in 2014?

Calling the Miami Marlins a dumpster fire in 2013 is an insult to waste receptacles. The club started the year 1-9, was 35-58 in the first half, and finished the season at 62-100, the second-worst mark in the majors and in the team's 21 year history. Their season was just a complete mess. However, things began to improve as the season went on. Their young pitching took a step...

What if Jordany Valdespin was Gregg Jefferies?

Jordany Valdespin gained a minor cult like following after he had some success during the 2012 season. I got to see Valdespin for a couple spring trainings before he made his MLB debut. I also watched him play a couple seasons in AA Binghamton. A line drive hitter with some speed, he never seemed like he could play SS at the MLB level. But he could hit. If you have followed...

Miami Marlins: Offseason trades, grades and needs

Garrett Jones becomes the new first baseman for the Miami Marlins. (Brett Davis/USA Today Sports) The Miami Marlins as few would have guessed, have been rather busy this offseason. Miami has brought in a number of veterans who have been around winning cultures to try to help the Marlins turnaround from what was a National League worst record of 62-100 in 2013.

Marlins owner just sold painting for slightly less than team's total payroll

Jeffrey Loria, the owner of the Miami Marlins, has zero interest investing his mass fortune into the roster of the team. This man has oodles of money and convinced the city government to use tax-payer money on a brand new stadium in a terrible area of Miami, and he gutted the roster before the inaugural season at it concluded. Needless to say, this man saves money whenever he can...
