What We Know About The Giancarlo Stanton Situation

As of Black Friday, the 2017 offseason has been astonishingly quiet. The trade and free agent market seems as though it’s being held up in large part by the situation surrounding NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton. Once that massive domino falls, it’s possible we’ll see a flurry of free agent activity follow. In the meantime, however, Stanton rumors are a heavy focus of the baseball media cycle, and as MLBTR’s Jeff Todd pointed out in an in-depth piece earlier this month, his market is wide...

The first signing of note is in the books for the Miami Marlins and it’s only fitting for a Derek Jeter-led front office that the move involved a shortstop.

Fish Stripes is thankful for Marlins legend Rich Waltz

Here are some of the best play-by-play calls from his 13 seasons in South Florida. The news came as a shock—FOX Sports Florida decided, in the middle of the MLB offseason, to overhaul its Miami Marlins broadcast booth. Veteran play-by-play man Rich Waltz was fired, along with analysts Preston Wilson and “Mr. Marlin” himself, Jeff Conine.

Marlins fans could be thankful for a Stanton trade come 2020

It may be a long-shot, but the book may not necessarily close on Giancarlo Stanton's Marlins career this winter. Whether they like it or not (admittedly, there is not much to like in the short-term), most people invested in Miami Marlins baseball have come to terms with the fact that Giancarlo Stanton, the first MVP in franchise history, is being aggressively shopped and will most likely be traded in the next few weeks. To the casual observer, it appears that the new ownership group is...

Dee Gordon Trade Rumors: Giants Discussed Possible Deal; Other Teams Interested

2017 Marlins Season Review: Odrisamer Despaigne

We really need a nickname for this guy 2017 wasn’t a good season for Marlins pitching. I’m pretty sure we’ve touched on that before. I’m an optimist though — I prefer to find the bright spots on the team. Odrisamer Despaigne was a bright spot in 2017. To be clear, against the infinite and vast backdrop of space, Odrisamer was more like a dwarf star, rather than a supernova. But he was still a bright spot, nonetheless. If you hadn’t heard of Despaigne when before made his debut in...

In the wake of last night’s deal with the Yankees, is a Justin Bour trade imminent?

Miami acquired Garrett Cooper from the Yankees yesterday evening.

In this here blogging business, the news of the day often reshapes the narrative you originally set out with when you take to the task of writing an article.

I knew that I wanted to write about Justin Bour as early as last week, when I became suspicious of the conspicuous absence of his name in any trade rumors. Sure, it’s easy to drown in the Stanton Sea if you’re another Marlins player these days, but we’ve heard all...

A favorite has emerged in the Giancarlo Stanton sweepstakes

As the MLB offseason continues, one thing seems clear: Giancarlo Stanton is moving. Just a couple of days ago, though, the St. Louis Cardinals would come forward with an offer. But now, it appears we have new favorites. The Giants are coming off a 64-98 season, one that placed them dead last in the NL West. But they are a mess all over the place. Giancarlo isn’t going to fix everything.A few questions come to mind, however.Will a potential Stanton trade require a third team? How much (in...
