Check out the Marlins in the Grapefruit League, a glimpse future with better access than MLB regular season games and at a fraction of the price.

Ex-Marlins who would be best hitter in 2019 Marlins lineup

All across the league, old friends are raking.

Without looking at any stats, who would you say is the best hitter on the 2019 Marlins?

Miguel Rojas was extremely steady from the leadoff spot prior to injuring his hamstring, but rarely showed the over-the-fence power that’s so essential to run production in Major League Baseball these days. Brian Anderson has emerged as the team’s most impactful all-around player, for sure, and a big aspect of his game...

MIA 6, COL 7; Bullpen, defense falter in Marlins’ extra-inning, walk-off loss

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Standout performances by Jordan Yamamoto and Harold Ramirez and a three-run rally in the top of the ninth were all for naught as the Marlins get swept.

This playing-out-the-string Marlins roster is engineered to lose. Exhibit A was Sunday’s 7-6, extra-inning walk-off loss to the Rockies. That completed a series sweep and dropped Miami to a season-worst 33 games below the .500 mark.

MIA 4, COL 11; Noesí, Fish bullpen get rocked by an offense they cannot stop

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The ball was getting hit hard in this one..just not by the Fish much.

The Marlins set up a nice session of batting practice for the Rockies during Saturday's game. The Rockies 13 hits and 11 runs were spread out over their eight innings at the plate. Héctor Noesí struggled greatly and showed now is not the best time for him to be in the majors. Miami's offense while collecting eight hits could not keep pace with the Rockies.

Marliniversary: Road comeback beats Dodgers closer Eric Gagne

Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images

On this date in 2004, the Marlins beat baseball’s best closer with a ninth-inning rally.

Eric Gagne had a two-run cushion as the Marlins came to the plate down 4-2 in the top of the ninth at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 18, 2004. A comeback didn’t seem realistic considering that he had been virtually unhittable all season. But when all was said and done, on this day 15 years ago, the Marlins would push four runs across in a thrilling 6-4 victory to take...

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports
