Marlins moving in their fences

Since Marlins Park opened in 2012, hitters have only hit 412 homers, the second fewest in the Majors during that span, behind only AT&T Park in San Francisco. I’d choose to believe it’s because everyone is scared of that garish home run sculpture in left-center field, but the Marlins believe it’s because the fences are too far. So, the Marlins are moving in the fences...

Three MLB teams that should consider relocation

Even in the heart of the NFL’s playoff season, the buzzword around the nation’s biggest sports entity has been “relocation.” With the Rams leaving St. Louis for Los Angeles (and the Chargers potentially being not too far behind), the second biggest market in the U.S. will once again have at least one team in town for the first time in more than two decades. The chances...

Miami Marlins Make an Excellent Move in Extending Dee Gordon

Other than locking up star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton last season to a long term deal, the move to extend the contract of second baseman Dee Gordon was the best decision this franchise has made in some time.

The Other Weapon In the Marlins Bullpen

Yesterday I wrote about Carter Capps, who last year was on his way to an almost impossible season before elbow trouble sent him off. The idea was to remind you of just what Capps was able to do over 30-odd innings, and in support of that, I noted that Capps had baseball’s most unhittable pitch if you set the minimum to 100 of a given pitch type thrown. That’s important — Capps’...

Dee Gordon’s Biggest Improvement

I’m not going to lie to you — I didn’t think much of Dee Gordon. Two years ago, I thought he was barely a big-leaguer. Even last year, when the Dodgers sent Gordon to the Marlins, I thought the Marlins were buying high on a utility sort. I was critical of the move when I wrote up the trade, and I felt pretty strongly, and now it’s been another year, and the Marlins have signed...

Dan Haren Throwing 88 Down the Middle

The list of athletes who are simultaneously good at their sport and social media is a short one. I don’t know much about the other sports, but in baseball, it’s pretty much limited to Brandon McCarthy, Brett Anderson, Glen Perkins and the recently-retired Dan Haren. In Haren’s case, it starts with the handle, @ithrow88, a reference to the 13-year veteran’s diminished late...

WATCH: Zac Rinaldo lays out Tom Wilson with a big hit

When the name Zac Rinaldo is evoked around the NHL, you are bound to get more than a few snide remarks about the player. He isn’t known as one of the most skilled players in the league, but he sure as heck knows what his job is on the Bruins. The job you may ask? Hitting people and knocking them on their butt. The video below shows him accomplishing his goal. I am sure for...

Haren's never been afraid of self-deprecation—his Twitter username, @ithrow88, refers to the fact that he...

Jose Fernandez ‘can’t comment’ on future in Miami

    The Marlins have said publicly that 23-year-old ace Jose Fernandez is not available via trade, but there have been plenty of indications that they are at least listening to offers. When you hear how excited Fernandez sounds to still be in Miami, it will make you wonder if he has been trying to force the team’s hand. Over the weekend, Fernandez was asked if he believes...

Miami Marlins announcer Tommy Hutton was recently fired after 19 years on the job, apparently because he was “too negative” on air for owner Jeffery Loria’s taste, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

The Miami Marlins remain a trainwreck. Expectations are that the club will trade talented 25-year old center fielder Marcell Ozuna this weekend…simply because owner Jeffrey Loria has a problem with him for whatever reason. Multiple teams have approached the #Marlins about Marcell Ozuna. They're being told Miami wants a young starter in return. — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick...
