Marlins erroneously announce Muhammad Ali’s death

The Miami Marlins had a moment straight out of a Southwest Airlines commercial. During Friday night's home game against the New York Mets, the Marlins flashed an image of Muhammad Ali on the scoreboard, along with the text, 1942-2016: Just announced at the Marlins game the goat has passed Muhammad Ali pic.twitter.com/tXnTJaXTIJ — 1999 PEDRO MARTINEZ (@b0ss561) June 4, 2016...

Marlins prematurely announce to their fans that Muhammad Ali passed away

The Los Angeles Times reports that Muhammad Ali is in “grave condition”, with his family at his bedside in a Phoenix hospital, and that “it could be hours” before his passing. Several news outlets have had similar reports, but there is not a report out there yet saying Ali has passed away. Well, either the Miami Marlins know something we don’t, or badly misunderstood the...

Still without a hit, Chen batting righty

Batting from the left side didn't work out, so Wei-Yin Chen has decided to give hitting righty a shot. No, he's not becoming a switch-hitter. He's simply swapping sides.

Miami Marlins are a top-10 team by underlying statistics

Among context-free teams, the Marlins are close to the top ten clubs in baseball, which is a good sign for Fish fans for the future. One look at the Miami Marlins and you might confuse them for a mediocre team. Outside of Jose Fernandez and that elite outfield of Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, and Marcell Ozuna, no one is really excelling. The back of their rotation is not...

Miami Marlins trade rumors: Club seeking pitching depth

The Marlins still want depth moving forward. After topping the Pirates on Thursday night, the Marlins sit four games above five-hundred and third place in the National League East. Since the Marlins haven't had much success in May the last few seasons, it's a position the club is not used to being in. If the Marlins are interested in buying before the non-waiver trade deadline...

Miami Marlins: Time for a bullpen makeover

After taking three of four from the Pittsburgh Pirates this week, the Miami Marlins are looking good right now. Unfortunately, the bullpen is becoming a serious issue and its recent inabilities to preserve leads almost demands a few changes to be made. Thankfully, changes have already been underway. Since May 26, three relief pitchers have been removed from the active roster. Bryan...

Miami Marlins Reliever David Phelps Has Found a Home in the Eighth Inning

Miami Marlins reliever David Phelps has been working as a setup man this season after spending a few years as a swingman. Since his rookie season in 2012, Phelps has appeared in 135 games, 59 of those as a starting pitcher. For his career, he has thrown 326.1 innings as a starter and 113 as a reliever. His 4.36 ERA as a starter is fine, but nothing special, as is his 3.50 ERA as...

Miami Marlins: Atlanta Braves=Unnecessary Kryptonite

The Miami Marlins are within striking distance of taking over first place in the competitive National League East. They have been unable to make that extra push because they are having lots of trouble against one of their division rivals: the one that is not even in contention! The Atlanta Braves? You mean the same team that started the season 0-9, the one that had just two home...

Marcell Ozuna playing best baseball of career for Miami Marlins

Going into the 2016 season, the Miami Marlins outfield was considered a position of strength for the club. With the rotation being young and inexperienced, the bullpen being thin, and the infield a talented but unpredictable group, the outfield was looked upon by both the front office and fans as an important trio for success in 2016. With Giancarlo Stanton going through a double...

Giancarlo Stanton’s Concerning Contact Rate

Giancarlo Stanton has always had a lot of swing and miss in his game, offsetting all the whiffs with ridiculous power displays on his way to being one of the game’s elite sluggers. So when you look at Stanton’s 2016 numbers, it’s easy to just look at the overall line (which includes a 115 wRC+) and note the unsustainably low .256 BABIP — he’s at .324 for his career, given...

Puig benched for not hustling, cracks Don Mattingly joke

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was yanked from Tuesday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds for admiring a long RBI single. Puig smoked a ball off the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth, scoring Trayce Thompson to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead. When he hit it, Puig clearly thought he had an opposite-field home run, so he admired the shot for a moment. That...

Is Marcell Ozuna Breaking Out?

Marcell Ozuna is the third-best outfielder on his team. He can’t match the power and discipline of Giancarlo Stanton, and he can’t match the patient, contact-oriented approach of rising star Christian Yelich. Partially related to those two statements, Yelich and Stanton have signed contracts worth nearly $400 million total while Ozuna, despite possessing more service time than...

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...
