Marcell Ozuna's fiery-hot on-base streak ends

Marcell Ozuna's times-on-base streak has ended at 36 (or 38) games, and he has done it in his own style. Last night, none of the Miami Marlins' position players did a good job of hitting as the team was shut out by, of all pitchers, Jeff Locke of the Pittsburgh Pirates. That includes Marcell Ozuna, whose on-base streak ended as he was trying to wrap up one of the best months in Marlins...

Justin Nicolino struggles again in Marlins loss

By giving up three earned runs in only five innings, the young left-hander extended two disappointing streaks as Miami's rotation continues to underwhelm despite Jose Fernandez's efforts.

Miami sports anchors bash Marlins after complaints of negative coverage

The Miami Marlins are a walking gong show, and have been for years. Yet, the 2016 squad hovers around the .500 mark after the first two months of the season, and some around the team are optimistic. That optimism hasn’t carried over to the local coverage, however, and it’s resulted in some complaints from media members close to the team, including Fox Sports Florida reporter...

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...

Miami Marlins: Prado should be an All-Star again

Two of the five players leading the National League in batting average are on the Miami Marlins. One of them, Marcell Ozuna, is hitting at a level that he has never reached before in the big leagues. The other one is bringing back his glory days in Atlanta and helping the Marlins become a suddenly dangerous offensive team. Martin Prado is certainly not an unknown in the MLB, but...

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.

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.

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.
