Miami Marlins: What is Derek Jeter’s plan for 2018?

This is not the most comfortable feeling in the world for Miami Marlins fans. Despite finishing second in the National League East in 2017, the Fish have not made any significant progress in the past four seasons. Add on the fact that the Marlins could not even compete for a wild card spot despite Giancarlo Stanton hitting 59 home runs, and the future of the Marlins is one giant question mark. Fortunately, a new group has taken over in South Beach, and Derek Jeter knows how to win. That does...

2017 Marlins Season Review: Martin Prado

Slowed by hamstring and knee injuries, Captain Pratt spent most of the summer leading from the bench. Fun fact: Martin Prado was one of only 10 MLB players with qualified seasons every year from 2009 through 2016. He’s in impressive company (via Baseball-Reference). Not as fun: Prado ranked 13th on his own team in plate appearances this past season. His absence opened the door for younger but less capable alternatives at third base, and the Miami Marlins suffered in the standings without...

The Wall Street Journal just recognized one of the Marlins biggest weak spots

Here’s why the Fish should revamp their approach to pitching Baseball is constantly evolving. This season has shown us the utility of power in every aspect of the game like never before. Major league hitters have struck out, walked, or hit a home run (the Three True Outcomes) more than ever before. With 6,105 home runs hit this regular season, hitters crushed the previous record of 5,693 held by the 2000 baseball season, in the middle of the so-called “steroids era”. While the...

The Rise of the Yankee South

The pinstriped invasion of Miami is well under way. Gary Denbo was the first, but he’ll be far from the last. Well, ok, that’s not entirely accurate. Don Mattingly was technically first, and there is no indication that his old teammate/new boss Derek Jeter is about to let him go, but Denbo was the first hire direct from the Yankees’ organization that served as the platform for Jeter’s meteoric fame and success. Why stop there, though? As our friends at Pinstripe Alley noted recently,...

No AFL for Peters as Marlins change plans

Left-hander Dillon Peters was initially going to represent Miami on the Salt River squad in the Arizona Fall League. But those plans changed when the Marlins ultimately decided the innings the 25-year-old threw in the big leagues as a September callup were enough, so he was shut him down for the offseason.
