Over the next few weeks, I'll be breaking down the Marlins at each position -- analyzing what went right and wrong for the players that saw action there -- as well as the likelihood of their...

The Marlins are more competitive than we could have imagined

Giancarlo Stanton – Photo Credit – Paul Hadsall   The trade deadline has passed and the Miami Marlins did not empty their roster. That means either one of two things. They couldn’t find any good deals for their young team, which is unlikely because they have alot of young talent on their squad — players like Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich, Jeff Baker and Adeiny Hechavarria...

Jayson Werth (Ankle) Out of Tonight’s Lineup vs. Marlins

It was the perfect meaning to the phrase ‘injury to insult’, as Jayson Werth limped off the field after being tagged out stretching at second. It turned into the start of a snowball effect, as the Washington Nationals blew a 6-0 lead to lose on a walk-off RBI-single from Jeff Baker 7-6 to the Miami Marlins. The result of the play may prove to be larger than one game, as Werth...

Marlins show early-season spirit in comeback win over Nationals

MIAMI -- Believe. That's what Miami Marlins third-base coach Brett Butler told players in the dugout during the seventh inning of Monday night's critical series opener against the Washington Nationals.

Headlined by Ed Lucas, Marlins' 'Goon Squad' comes up clutch in victory

MIAMI -- Miami Marlins utility player Ed Lucas endearingly refers to the club's bench as the Goon Squad. Guys in their 30s are scattered among inexperienced 20-somethings, around to provide a lift in pinch-hit situations, defensive substitutions and clubhouse morale. It came through in the clutch Tuesday night, as the Marlins snapped a four-game losing skid with a 5-4 walk-off victory...

Marlins notes: Eighth inning providing some trouble for Miami's bullpen

MIAMI -- A walk-off victory helps erase bad plays from the short-term memory, but the truth is a troubling trend remains for the Miami Marlins. Eighth-inning woes continue to be a problem, and Thursday's 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies proved to be no exception. Up 3-0, reliever A.J. Ramos walked Jimmy Rollins to lead off the frame after getting ahead 0-2 in the count. Wil...
