Marlins in the thick of the playoff hunt

As we approach the halfway point in the 2016 Major League Baseball season, a couple of things are becoming clear. The Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers are emerging as the best teams in their respective leagues; the Miami Marlins are becoming a legitimate playoff contender. The Cubs, and to a lesser degree the Rangers, are no surprise. But the Marlins making a real push for the postseason...

Marlins Strand 12 Runners on Base, Lose 10-3 to Tigers

Koehler and McGowan got beat up, as the Tigers scored 10 runs on 15 hits, taking two from Miami as they head south to Atlanta. Not exactly how the Marlins hoped this short two-game series with the Tigers would end, as Miami drops both games by a combined score of 17-8. As opposed to the big inning last night, the Tigers spread out their runs over five today. With most of the damage...

Chen looks to lead Marlins to success vs. Braves

So much of the focus on the Fourth of July weekend series between the Marlins and Braves is directed at Sunday's historical game at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, which will be the first game in any professional sport played on an active military base. Before then, the clubs must first take care of business with three contests at Turner Field, with the first on tap for Thursday night.

Are the Marlins for real?

If the season ended today, the Miami Marlins — yes, the team with Jeffrey Loria as owner — would make the playoffs for the first time since 2003 or, if you prefer, 13 long years ago. The Marlins are currently leading the race for the NL’s second Wild Card, one game back of the Dodgers for the top spot and half a game up on both the Mets and Cardinals. Looking at their lineup...

A Very Different Wei-Yin Chen

When the Marlins inked Wei-Yin Chen to a five year, $80 million deal this offseason they weren’t signing an ace or a workhorse. During his four previous seasons, Chen registered an ERA-, FIP-, or xFIP- better than 90 just once and he maxed out at 192.2 innings in 2012. Chen made a name for himself from 2012 to 2015 as an exemplar of consistency. Above average, but not great. Reliable...

The Marlins Are Doing Just Fine Without Dee Gordon

Last week, there was a little event you may have heard about called the “summer solstice.” Both calendars and my elementary-school science classes tell me that means summer just officially began. There are a few basic truths about summer’s infancy: children in your community may currently be in a state of euphoria; it’s time to plan July 4th barbeques; and, most relevant...

Exploring the Marlins Improved Offense

At the beginning of the year, if you had said that Dee Gordon would miss half the season and that Giancarlo Stanton would be an approximately league average hitter, it would probably have been pretty damn safe to assume that the Miami Marlins would not be in contention in 2016. After all, this team was essentially the poster boy for the “stars and scrubs” strategy. The top of...

The Miami Marlins are Finally Coming into Their Own

Back in 2012, Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria made a large promise to fans of the ball club after a $515 million stadium, filled with home run sculptures, aquariums, and bobble-heads, was built in Miami. He promised them a winning team. After years of mediocrity as the Florida Marlins, the team packed their bags and headed for Miami, Florida in search of a new beginning of some...

Miami Marlins trade rumors: Jake Odorizzi edition

The Miami Marlins are in somewhat strange territory. As June comes near its end, the Fish are playing very solid baseball leading to a 38-34 record and in the hunt for the NL wild-card. In past seasons, June has been a terrorizing month that has lead the Marlins gradually out of playoff contention and grasping for hope going into July. This season, however, seems to have a different...

Miami Marlins: Check out the standings

So this is just one of those usual years, right? The New York Mets and Washington Nationals are battling it out for the NL East title, while the NL Central teams battle it out for playoff positioning, right? Seems anti-climactic. Meanwhile, the Miami Marlins are likely the team in the middle of the good and ugly teams. For those who actually think these scenarios are true, you might...

Ranking Ichiro Suzuki’s eight most memorable MLB career moments

Ichiro Suzuki’s place as a worldwide baseball icon was secure — even before what took place on Wednesday. But on that afternoon, the 42-year-old reached a unique milestone.

Whether or not you believe he should be recognized more for overtaking Pete...

Indonesian soccer stadium rips off Marlins Park logo

There is a saying that suggests imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that is the case, then the Miami Marlins should be flattered somebody actually liked something about their monstrosity of a baseball stadium. They just have to travel to Indonesia to find them. The logo for Wibawa Mukti Stadium in Indonesia looks a little familiar (via @BigGuzz assist @assbajik) pic...

After 12 years for the Seattle Mariners and a short stint with the New York Yankees, the 42-year old Japanese legend has been a treat to watch for Miami fans since they acquired him prior to last season.
