Making the case for Stanton as MVP

Giancarlo Stanton – Photo Credit – Paul Hadsall   No Miami Marlins player has ever been named an MVP.

MIAMI -- Any momentum the Miami Marlins tried carrying over from last night's walk-off victory quickly evaporated during Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Texas Rangers. Right-hander Nathan Eovaldi opened the game by inducing two quick outs before the Rangers collected three runs on four straight hits. The hardest hit ball -- J.P. Arencibia's RBI double to left -- brought two...

The Marlins’ Young Outfield One of Baseball’s Best

The National League Wild Card race is hardly a race at all. It feels as though the teams vying for the playoffs’ back door don’t actually want to claim the prize, struggling as the contenders have in recent months.

Reed Johnson wasn’t ready. The veteran outfielder had just begun to stretch when he learned he would be pinch-hitting for Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija to lead off the sixth inning of a game against the Brewers in May 2012. He grabbed a bat and walked to the plate cold. Looking for any way to get loose, Johnson lunged at Marco Estrada’s 1-0 pitch in the dirt and missed. But...
