End of season post-mortem: Miami Marlins

All things considered, the 2014 Miami Marlins were a bit of a surprise. Sure, they were never truly a playoff contender — especially after Jose Fernandez tore his UCL in mid-May and needed Tommy John surgery — but they hung around .500 for much of the season. Coming off a year in which they lost 100 games, there may actually be some reason for hope on South Beach. Preseason Prediction...

How Close To The Playoffs Would the Marlins Be With Jose Fernandez?

When Jose Fernandez blew out his elbow in May, the baseball world wept, rightfully so. It didn’t matter if you were a Marlins fan or not, it only mattered that one of the brightest young stars in baseball was gone, just one of a billion (probably) pitchers to learn that pitching is really, really unhealthy. It […]

DraftKings – I Left My DFS Account in Francisco

The best part of playing DFS this time of year? Having a horse in the race even if you don't have a horse in the race.

With DFS, I get to draft a brand new team every day and therefore I am never out...

Gaping void in Marlins rotation proving difficult to fill

MIAMI -- When it became clear that ace Jose Fernandez would require Tommy John surgery, the Miami Marlins turned to a rookie for the first two starts in his place.
