2016 Miami Marlins Preview & Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep

Full seasons from Jose Fernandez and Giancarlo Stanton would be nice, and the lineup has a few other guys who should be on your radar. Also, aren't you curious to see the effect of new hitting coach Barry Bonds?(Note: When a player's fantasy draft status is mentioned - e.g., "he's an SP4" - the number is based on 12-team mixed leagues.

VIDEO: Remembering When Giancarlo Stanton Mashed A Grand Slam Off of 49-Year-Old Jamie Moyer

After watching baseball highlight after highlight the other night — we’ve all been there, right? — I had to re-share this. This video is amazing in many ways, but I still can’t get over the fact that Jamie Moyer was 49 when he was on the bump here in 2013. Thats 27 — yes, 27 — years older than the man who hit the home run, then-22-year-old Giancarlo Stanton.  That...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Miami Marlins Team Preview

Carter Capps is Doing Something Brilliant

Carter Capps made his Major League Baseball debut just four days before his 22nd birthday, on August 3, 2012. For most players that young, you might assume that he was a highly-regarded draft pick out of high school, and worked his way up through the minors over the course of three or four seasons. However, quite the opposite was true – coming out of North Lenoir High School in...

Could the Miami Marlins contend in 2016?

Last season, the National League East was by far the worst division in baseball.  As a division, they “boasted” a .462 winning percentage and three of its five teams lost 90+ games.  The Nationals won 83 games and finished second, so they very nearly had only one team with a winning record. Even though the Mets won the pennant and put it together when it counted, top to bottom...

BBE Fantasy Episode 1: Wei-Yin Chen

Fantasy Baseball season is coming. With the fantasy football season well over and most casual fans being resigned to watch teams they couldn’t care less about, the focus in the next month should turn to Baseball, and for quite a few, Fantasy Baseball.

Farewell to Marlins Park 1.0

Marlins Park opened to much fanfare four years ago, and while the team quickly abandoned what it had taken on as its new operational identity, there’s no abandoning a ballpark that fast. Not that the Marlins want to leave, anyway, but — love it or hate it — Marlins Park will be around for a while yet. One of the funny things about the stadium is that it took exactly one game...
