Miami Marlins: Which players could be expendable at the trade deadline?

The MLB season has reached one of the most enticing pinnacles. If the rumors of potential trades before July 31 were not already flying like first grade paper airplanes, then they certainly will for the next two weeks. This is especially the case for the Miami Marlins. While they are not nearly as bad as their preseason predictions indicated (I had them dead last in the MLB at 63-99), they are still in a position to be sellers for the trade deadline. They have done their best to beef up...

Things We Love to See: July 17, 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Marlins Prospect Journal A lot has been said about the Miami Marlins new front office since they took over the team in October from disaster artist Jeffrey Loria and his crew of franchise destroyers. The ownership group, headed by businessman Bruce Sherman and legendary New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, took over a team $400 million in debt and deep in the middle of an identity crisis. With an outfield full of All-Stars (LF Marcell Ozuna, CF Christian Yelich, and...

Progress for Marlins: Considered ‘not just a rollover team’

MIAMI (AP) — By one reading of the Derek Jeter meter, not much has changed with the Miami Marlins since he took over. They have by far the worst run differential in the National League. Their record has been the NL’s worst for much of the season. They’re a distant last in the majors in attendance. But within the franchise, optimism is the highest it has been since unpopular owner Jeffrey Loria put the Marlins up for sale in early 2017. Evidence suggests the new ownership group,...

The name becoming impossible to forget

Brian Anderson had an excellent all-around first half for the Marlins.

Brian Anderson isn’t the star we were expecting, but he’s definitely the star we need.

Hanley Ramírez. Chris Coghlan. Giancarlo Stanton. The list goes on and on with great Marlins rookie hitters, but we may be witnessing the best yet.

As a relentless worker with a quiet demeanor, Andy has had to deal with a lot in the first half of a rookie season. As a career third baseman, he was widely expected to man the hot...

J.T. Realmuto’s first MLB All-Star experience

The Marlins were repped proudly by their outstanding catcher.

J.T. Realmuto was the lone representative for the Marlins at the 2018 MLB All-Star Game, but he had plenty of company over the course of two eventful days in Washington, D.C. Reporters, family members and former teammates all wanted a piece of the National League’s top catcher.

There’s Realmuto during Monday’s media availability prior to the Home Run Derby:

Starlin Castro Is a Superstitious Guy

Although we all like to pretend we may understand the depth and sincerity of certain professional athlete’s superstitions, I’m not sure I truly understand how serious some players take them. Take Starlin Castro, for example. The Marlins’ second baseman only exits out of one dugout opening/doorway if he’s doing well, but switches it up if he has a bad at-bat. And that process apparently goes on and on until he finds a rhythm. Castro was on the Cubs – my favorite team – for years...

10 stats to summarize the first half of the 2018 Marlins season

It’s been weird, mostly mediocre baseball, but also...fun?

Have you been following the Marlins this season? It’s OK to say no! Even the most optimistic among us forecasted a losing record for them in 2018, and some fans cannot bear to watch a team that’s doomed for short-term irrelevance.

However, the first three-and-a-half months have been surprisingly entertaining. Freed from any expectations, every win is extra sweet and sustained winning that we’ve witnessed in recent weeks...

Realmuto is back in conversation for Nationals

The Nationals could be willing to “revisit” talks with the Marlins about J.T. Realmuto, according to Fancred Sports’ Jon Heyman.  The Nats have long been connected to Realmuto, though GM Mike Rizzo seemingly threw cold water on the potential of a trade a few weeks ago by saying that his team wasn’t willing to meet Miami’s very high asking price for the star catcher.  Now, there is some belief that Washington could be open to dealing star outfield prospect Victor Robles, though...

Marlins visit Rays to open second half

The Marlins open their second half at 7:10 p.m. ET on Friday against the Rays, and they are going with right-hander Dan Straily in the series opener. Straily, who missed most of April after opening the season on the DL, has gotten sharper. In three July starts, his ERA is 2.84. Tampa Bay will counter with former Marlins pitcher Nathan Eovaldi.
