In thick of wild-card race, Marlins get off to rough start to road trip

DENVER -- This isn't how the Miami Marlins envisioned beginning their three-city, nine-game trip -- losing two of three to the National League's worst club, the Colorado Rockies, with All-Stars Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez out for the season. And yet that's what happened after Sunday afternoon's 7-4 loss at Coors Field. To the same club -- personnel aside ...

Jarred Cosart stymies Cardinals as offense is lifeless again

Mark Ellis got the start at first base in Miami tonight for St. Louis. He went 2-3. Only problem, those two hits accounted for half of the Cardinals’ hits in Game 2 of this three game series. Jarred Cosart hasn’t thrown more than six innings in his previous five starts. Tonight, he threw seven shutout innings, only to allow three hits. The Marlins would score all of their runs...

Casey McGehee: Fake Speedster

The 2009 Milwaukee Brewers had a fairly potent offense. Prince Fielder was playing out of his mind. Ryan Braun was not far behind him. Mike Cameron was still providing value, Corey Hart was about league average. Jason Kendall and J.J. Hardy, while not hitting very well, were playing well enough defensively that they needed to […]

Marlins notes: Different players coming through as wins pile up

MIAMI -- Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton and third baseman Casey McGehee combined for just one hit and three strikeouts Monday night. And yet the Marlins rallied from six down to beat the first-place Washington Nationals 7-6 in walk-off fashion. A common theme during the five-game winning streak -- as well as eight of the past nine -- has been contributions from various players...

Marlins are not shopping Casey McGehee, might sign him to multi-year contract extension

Casey McGehee entered play on Tuesday evening with a batting average (.322) that is 54 points above his career mean (.268) and an RBI total (56) that ranks ninth in the National League. The 31-year-old third baseman — who spent the 2013 season in Japan — fits the mold of a sell-high candidate. But it doesn’t sound like he’s going to be moved.

Marlins snap six-game losing skid with win over Giants

MIAMI (AP) -- NL hits leader Casey McGehee homered for the second time this season, and the Miami Marlins took the lead for good on a wild pitch by Tim Lincecum in the seventh inning to beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 Sunday. Miami stopped a six-game losing streak and averted a three-game series sweep. McGehee came in with 118 hits and 54 RBIs, and the two-run homer in the first...

Marlins taking advantage of R&R and spending time with family during All-Star break

Sure, Miami Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee wanted to make the National League All-Star team. What big leaguer doesn't want that validation from fans and peers? But he's not completely bummed by the snub because of his plans during the break. "I'm going to go back to my house in Tennessee that I've never actually seen my yard with green grass," McGehee...

Casey McGehee’s 2014 Season Has Been Strange and Wonderful

Casey McGehee and the Value of Timely Hitting

In the pantheon of strange MLB seasons, Casey McGehee’s name deserves some prime real estate. Somehow he’s driven in 53 runs this year — 13.7% of the Marlins’ total runs on the season — with just one, lone home run. Giancarlo Stanton has 62 RBI, just nine more than McGehee, but he’s hit 20 extra blasts. Sometimes baseball doesn’t make sense. numberFire featured a post...

Marlins unwilling to trade Stanton or McGehee highlights closeness of races

The Miami Marlins are six games out in the NL East but that does not mean that they are willing to trade start Giancarlo Stanton. While teams and fans have long awaited Stanton’s exit for the Marlins, it will not be happening this year according to general manager Dan Jennings. In fact the Marlins also want everyone to know that All-Star final vote candidate Casey McGehee is staying...

Like a Boss: Hat gets passed around to Marlins' top performers

Minutes after Miami's 5-0 victory last Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies, Marlins starter Tom Koehler's jersey hung from his locker. So did a blue undefeated snapback hat embroidered with BOSS and five stars above the bill. Though it costs just $24.99 at Urban Outfitters, the cap signifies more to a Marlins club intent on exuding good chemistry and morale. As spring...

Cardinals can't complete comeback, lose 8-4 to Miami

ST.

Casey McGehee extended his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games with an RBI single in the first. Marcell Ozuna had a two-run...

Marlins rally from four down to beat Cardinals 6-5

After grounding into a game-ending double play with the bases loaded Friday night, Casey McGehee lamented how he "spoiled" the chance and wished he could have back the at-bat. Late Saturday afternoon, much sooner than he could have expected, McGehee got a chance at redemption – again in the ninth inning and again with the Marlins trailing by a run after rallying. This...

Casey McGehee not 'too concerned' about making or not making All-Star Game

When the National League All-Star team is revealed Sunday night, Miami Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee won't be surprised if his name is omitted. Instead of playing in the majors last year, McGehee rediscovered his swing in Japan, blasting 28 homers and knocking in 93 RBI. He isn't a household name like David Wright or Aramis Ramirez.   Despite leading all NL third basemen...
