Predicting the Marlins 2018 Infield

As the 2017 season nears a close and the Marlins 10 games out of contention it’s best to look towards the 2018 season. Marlins’ fans knew what to expect with Loria and company every offseason: No big free agent signings, overpaying for a premium position, and adding veterans past their primes. With Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman positioned to take the reins this offseason is important and hard to predict. One thing we can safely assume is that the outfield remains unchanged.

Tyler Moore’s double life exposed

You thought you knew sporadic Marlins first baseman Tyler Moore. Think again.

“Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you’re just strangers.” - Mary Tyler Moore

“They know.”

Tyler Moore turned his head lazily toward Mikes Aviles, half-listening, still taking in the ball game unfolding in front of him.

“They know what, Mike?”

Mike and Tyler had spent a good amount of time on the road in the minors this past season and had grown close over their shared...

Marlins sweep Mets behind four homers and José Ureña

Stanton hits his 56th of the season

The Marlins clearly love playing the Mets. The Marlins opened today’s game 11-7 against the New Yorkers for the season. After a rough three week stretch which saw Miami falling out of the wild card race, a little home cooking (and the Mets) were what the Fish needed. Behind their best pitcher, José Ureña, the Marlins went for the sweep of the three game set today at Marlins Park.

Things started off well against struggling Mets starter, Rafael Montero...

A Tip of the Cap to Dee Gordon

In what has been a particularly hectic year for the Marlins, Dee Gordon has quietly had an incredible season.

On Tuesday night, Alex Gordon was the straw that broke the camel’s back; on a 3-2 pitch in the bottom of the eight inning, Gordon hit the 5,694th home run of the season, officially breaking the record for most home runs hit in a single season of Major League Baseball. In a game that is oft criticized for being slow and uneventful, home runs rule the day, and those who hit the most...

Marlins Walk Off in Extra Innings to Beat Mets 5-4

Realmuto sealed the deal for the Fish

If Monday night’s deconstruction of the Mets was the Marlins’ genre-bending, breakout album, then tonight was the band’s sophomore slump. It didn’t feature the overwhelming offensive performances or solid work from the mound like last night, but either way, You Play to Win the Game™. Both the bass player (definitely Marcell Ozuna) and keyboardist (definitely Dee Gordon) didn’t start tonight, but both joined in eventually.

Here's tonight's...

In big moment, Ichiro stays the same

To Marlins manager Don Mattingly, there is no real mystery as to why Ichiro Suzuki has had a Hall of Fame-worthy career. The 43-year-old outfielder has the ability to make the most stressful situations seem simple.
