  1. Really now, what should the Marlins have done?

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    The Monstrosity

    Look, I’d be just as happy to kick Jeffrey Loria to the curb as the rest of you. I’m not going to slam him for all of the sliminess involving the Marlins ballpark deal because in those maneuverings, he’s basically just doing everything Bud Selig wants his owners to do. But, yeah, as far as MLB…

  2. Juan Carlos Oviedo unlikely to pitch for Marlins this season

    Jul 18, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    oviedo getty

    While pitching in the minors Juan Carlos Oviedo suffered a sprained elbow just before the conclusion of his eight-week suspension and now it sounds like the injury, and not false identity charges, will end his season before it even started. Oviedo was slated to rejoin the Marlins next week and may have even gotten some…

  3. Juan Carlos Oviedo out indefinitely with sprained elbow

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    oviedo getty

    Juan Carlos Oviedo is eligible to return from his eight-week suspension for identity fraud on July 23, but the reliever formerly known as Leo Nunez won’t be ready to rejoin the Marlins’ bullpen by then because he’s been diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Oviedo suffered the injury while working…

  4. Marlins going to closer-by-committee again

    Jul 10, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Heath Bell

    It never really took the first time, but Heath Bell‘s latest blown save on Sunday has caused the Marlins to again try a closer-by-committee. Bell, who was signed to a three-year, $27 million deal in the offseason, has blown two of his last four save chances and six of 25 for the season. Those totals…

  5. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  6. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 9, 2012, 6:09 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    We have reached the All-Star break. Which means that this is the last And That Happened for a week. Unless there’s a temporal anomaly or something, which has been known to happen … Pirates 13, Giants 2: Andrew McCutchen was added to the Home Run Derby the other day. He got some early practice yesterday, smacking…

  7. Hanley Ramirez suffers cut hand hitting electric fan

    Jul 8, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez

    Hanley Ramirez left Sunday’s game against the Cardinals with a cut on his finger, the result of him hitting a fan in the dugout. “Very stupid injury,” manager Ozzie Guillen said. “Very immature. … You make an out, you hit something and you injure it, you don’t just hurt yourself, you hurt the ballclub.” Ramirez…

  8. Quote of the Day: Ozzie Guillen

    Jul 4, 2012, 8:56 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Washington Nationals

    The Marlins came back after being down a zillion runs, then lost in dramatic fashion when Aramis Ramirez walked them off with a homer.  Ozzie Guillen was, understandably, not pleased. And he wants to be sure Heath Bell didn’t get all the blame: “Make sure Miami people don’t (expletive) Bell. Bell gave up two runs.…

  9. Brewers blow 9-2 lead against Marlins, win 13-12 in 10 innings

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:06 PM EDT

    Aramis Ramirez walkoff

    Bob Brenly, eat your heart out. Aramis Ramirez, already with a two-run double on the day, played the hero in a wild game Tuesday, hitting a two-run homer off Heath Bell with two outs in the bottom of the 10th to give the Brewers a 13-12 win over the Marlins. The victory would have been…

    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…

    Chicago White Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    White Sox 2, Rays 1: Chris Sale: 15Ks and three hits in seven and a third. Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer. Red Sox 7, Tigers 4: Jim Leyland said that we saw what we saw and should write what we saw, so let’s do that: The Red Sox’ second inning rally never should have happened…

  12. MLB officially suspends Juan Carlos Oviedo for eight weeks

    May 28, 2012, 3:44 PM EDT

    Leo Nunez - Juan Carlos Oviedo

    Juan Carlos Oviedo finally arrived in the United States today after receiving a travel visa, but it will be a while before he’s pitching for the Marlins again. Major League Baseball announced this afternoon that Oviedo has been suspended eight weeks for engaging in age and identity fraud. Ovideo, formerly known as Leo Nunez, has…

  13. Juan Carlos Oviedo gets visa, arrives in Florida next week

    May 25, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Leo Nunez - Juan Carlos Oviedo

    Earlier this week Juan Carlos Oviedo reportedly received his work visa, but then it turned out he received a pardon from the U.S. State Department that’s necessary before getting a visa but hadn’t gotten the actual visa yet. Now he has both, with Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reporting that Oviedo has finally been…

  14. Juan Carlos Oviedo close to getting work visa, must still serve eight-week suspension

    May 23, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Leo Nunez - Juan Carlos Oviedo

    El Caribe in the Dominican Republic reports that Juan Carlos Oviedo has finally received his work visa and the Marlins reliever formerly known as Leo Nunez will soon make his way to the United States nearly six months after being charged with identity fraud. However, don’t expect to see him in the Marlins’ bullpen any…

    Joey Votto

    Reds 9, Nationals 6: Joey Votto hit three homers including a walkoff grand slam.  Yeah, that’ll play. The back end of the Nats bullpen continues to be horrific. Marlins 8, Mets 4: Earlier in the day Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff slam of his own capping a six-run bottom of the ninth for Miami. Heath…

  16. Giancarlo Stanton hits walkoff grand slam versus Mets

    May 13, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

    Giancario Stanton

    The Marlins have had some big ninth-inning struggles this season. Today, they turned the tables on the Mets. Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff grand slam as part of a six-run bottom of the ninth as the Marlins topped the Mets 8-4. The game was tied 2-2 entering the ninth when the Mets rallied for two…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…

  18. Marlins worried struggling Josh Johnson isn’t healthy

    May 5, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Josh Johnson AP

    Heath Bell isn’t the only big name pitcher struggling for the Marlins. Josh Johnson missed the final four months of last season with a shoulder injury and has looked nothing like his old self early on this year, leading manager Ozzie Guillen to worry that the Marlins ace is still hurting. Last night Johnson failed…

  19. We now know for certain that Carlos Zambrano has changed

    May 3, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v St Louis Cardinals

    When considering Heath Bell‘s non-blown-save-blown-save, this part hadn’t occurred to me:  Carlos Zambrano was the pitcher of record and stood to get the win if Bell had managed to lock the game down in the ninth.  Yet, despite this, there was no violence, mayhem, sturm nor drang. Clark Spencer from the Miami Herald:  “I feel…

    Three walkoff homers and a no-hitter? Holy moley, that was a great night of baseball guys.

  21. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 27, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Brandon Allen

    Rays 4, Angels 3: Pinch hit walkoff bomb from Brandon Allen to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Albert Pujols got a hit but he was thrown out at second trying to stretch it into a double. I think that’s what the fancy commentators on those evening baseball television programs call “pressing.” The Angels…

  22. There were three ninth inning rallies today

    Apr 26, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    Brandon Allen

    Sure, the Giants’ win over the Reds had an assist from a bad call by an ump, but it still counts as a ninth inning rally.  As does the Heath Bell meltdown Aaron described earlier. But those weren’t the only two. The Rays turned their caps inside out or whatever the hell passes for a…

  23. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 9, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers

    There were only 14 games yesterday. On a Sunday. Because the A’s and Mariners didn’t play thanks to the Japan Series. Look, I don’t care if you want to start the season in Japan, but there should be a federal law against anything less than a full slate of games on a Sunday.  Anyway: Tigers…
