Inbox: Will the Marlins deal Realmuto, Yelich?

From what I've gathered, after Giancarlo Stanton, Dee Gordon and Marcell Ozuna were traded, the Marlins' intentions were to keep Yelich, Realmuto, and we can add Starlin Castro to that group.

Braxton Lee: Marlin on the Rise

A breakout 2017 season dramatically changed the trajectory of the outfielder’s career.

At this time a year ago, none of you had ever heard of Braxton Lee. Admit it!

But thanks to a few lucky bounces and a lot of hard work, he’s headed toward a fascinating age-24 season. A dearth of quality Miami Marlins outfielders cleared the way for Lee to earn a 40-man roster spot. The major league coaching staff will take a long look at the Picayune, Mississippi native during spring training.

Miami Marlins still looking to unload players and salary

The Miami Marlins new ownership group that includes future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter are not making any friends in the sunshine state as they continue to unload salary and players ahead of the 2018 season. The Marlins are in full rebuild mode which in all likelihood should amount to some painful times ahead if you are a Marlins fan. Undoubtedly baseball betting sites will have the Marlins as the odds-on favourite to finish in the basement of the majors for the conceivable future at the...

Interestingly, all the unsigned free agents listed above are Scott Boras clients. Travis Sawchik of Fangraphs wrote an excellent article on this topic and others have noted a seeming...

“Project Sunshine” welcomes Marlins fans who are ready to rebel against Derek Jeter

The petition seeks one million signatures. Fish Stripes spoke to the organizer about why he feels so strongly about the new ownership group. On the heels of several unpopular trades and other personnel decisions, new Miami Marlins ownership could use some positive press to close out their first offseason at the helm. They certainly didn’t get it from the Miami Herald, which just completed its thorough analysis of Derek Jeter’s ambitious “Project Wolverine” business plan. Revelations...
