Giancarlo Stanton

    Not that it’s news — Jeff Loria is a horrible, horrible baseball executive and probably a horrible person — but Ken Rosenthal has the most thorough look at the rot in the Marlins front office I’ve seen so far. Larry Beinfest, Mike Hill and David Samson are all the men responsible, by most estimates, for…

    Mets reliever Frank Francisco had to exit in the eighth inning of this afternoon’s game against the Marlins after being hit in the wrist by a Logan Morrison line drive.

    Giancarlo Stanton

    X-rays were negative, so Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins’ lineup tonight after sitting out Sunday and Monday with a foot injury. Stanton initially suffered the injury on September 1 and then aggravated it again Saturday. He has 16 homers and a solid .838 OPS in 76 games since missing all of May and…

  5. Jose Fernandez one-hits the Nationals over seven innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:05 PM EST

    Jose Fernandez

    Marlins starter Jose Fernandez padded his NL Rookie of the Year and Cy Young cases with seven outstanding innings against the Nationals tonight, bringing a no-hitter into the sixth inning. The Nationals stood no chance, recording just one hit — a squibber down the third base line by pinch-hitter Zach Walters with one out in…

  6. Must-click link: the All-Homegrown MLB

    What if teams could not trade players or sign free agents? What if their roster was limited, for all time, to players they drafted and signed as amateurs and developed through the minors? What would that league look like? Domenic Lanza of It’s About the Money tries to figure that out, setting forth all home-grown…

  7. Two weeks later, Christian Yelich loses three-hit debut

    Aug 9, 2013, 6:36 PM EST

    Christian Yelich

    A scoring change from the July 26 Marlins-Rockies game came down on Friday, costing Christian Yelich his third hit from his major league debut. Yelich’s third single of the game was a hard grounder at a drawn-in D.J. LeMahieu playing second base. The ball handcuffed LaMehieu and bounced over his shoulder, though LeMahieu was able…

  8. Not so fast, Pirates: The Marlins say no one made them an offer for Giancarlo Stanton

    Aug 2, 2013, 1:53 PM EST

    giancarlo stanton getty

    This all moot, basically, as Giancarlo Stanton is still a Marlin. But it’s interesting all the same. After the trade deadline passed there was a report that the Pirates made a serious offer for Giancarlo Stanton that “turned the heads” of the Marlins front office. Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, however, says that’s not…

  9. Report: Pirates made serious offer for Giancarlo Stanton

    Jul 31, 2013, 8:51 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton

    The Marlins made it clear to everyone that they weren’t interested in trading their star right fielder, but according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviews’s Rob Biertempfel, the Pirates made an offer for Giancarlo Stanton that “caught the attention of the Marlins’ front office” before being rebuffed. With either Gerrit Cole or Jameson Taillon to headline a…

  10. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EST

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  11. Jose Fernandez dazzles as Marlins top Pirates

    Jul 28, 2013, 10:25 PM EST

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Miami Marlins

    Marlins starter Jose Fernandez, 21 years old on July 31, continued to make his case both for NL Rookie of the Year and for NL Cy Young with a stunning eight-inning performance against the Pirates this afternoon.

    Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox

    Rays 3, Red Sox 0: Matt Moore throws his first career shutout and it came in the first game of what, so far this year, is the Rays biggest series. Two hits allowed, one walk four strikeouts as the Rays cut a game off the Sox’ division lead, now sitting a half game back. Reds…

    The Marlins are finally back on the board.

  14. Stephen Strasburg had the worst start of his career last night

    Jul 13, 2013, 10:42 AM EST

    Stephen Strasburg Getty

    Stephen Strasburg entered last night’s action having allowed seven earned runs combined over his last four starts. So of course he gave up a career-high seven earned runs over just two innings in an 8-3 loss to the last-place Marlins. Baseball, man. After being handed a quick 3-0 lead, Strasburg really struggled with his control…

    Josh Hamilton

    Angels 13, Cubs 2: It’s almost as if Josh Hamilton hadn’t totally forgotten how to play baseball or something. Go figure. Two homers and five RBI in this romp. One of his homers was back-to-back with a Pujols home run. First time that’s happened this year. Nationals 5, Phillies 1: The Nats hit four homers…

    I thought Matt Harvey was the only ballplayer posing nude for that ESPN Body Issue, but Old Gator pointed out to me that Giancarlo Stanton is as well. He’s kinda got an Aquaman thing going here: In other news, we need more day games. If you’re curious how he maintains that bod of his, go…

    Orioles' Jones watches his two-run home run off of Yankees closing pitcher Rivera during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Orioles 2, Yankees 1: Even Superman gets beat up once in a while. Adam Jones handed Mariano Rivera his second blown save of the year and the first blown save in Yankee Stadium in a dog’s age when he smacked a two-run homer in the ninth. Speaking of Superman, I finally got around to seeing…

    Miami Marlins v Minnesota Twins - Game Two

    As one of the few non-Giancarlo Stanton veterans on Miami’s roster performing well Ricky Nolasco has been a likely trade candidate all season and Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that “the Marlins have been aggressively working to move Nolasco as soon as possible.” Nolasco is being paid $11.5 million this season, so by moving him…

  21. One man gang: Giancarlo Stanton goes deep twice

    Jun 18, 2013, 9:16 AM EST

    Miami Marlins v Arizona Diamondbacks

    As I mentioned in the recaps this morning, Giancarlo Stanton homered twice, notching two of the Marlins’ three hits in the process and all of their RBI. Just another day at the office for the Iron Giant. But watching his two homers is better than reading the box score. Check out the video here. The…

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 2, Mets 1: A three-hour and fifty-two minute rain delay? Really? Despite that, Dillon Gee shut the Braves out through eight and a third and drove in the Mets’ only run. And despite that he gave up a walkoff two-run homer to Freddie Freeman just before 1:30 AM. Now they play a day-night doubleheader. Expect many…

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The losing team scored two runs in eight of last night’s fifteen games. I have no idea if that’s uncommon or not, but I noticed it and I’m going to pretend it’s a sign or portent or something. Anyway: Pirates 8, Giants 2: Welcome to the big leagues Gerrit Cole. The 2011 number one pick…

    Logan Morrison Getty

    The Marlins had a miserable .198/.268/.272 batting line from their first basemen coming into play today, but the club should get a boost at the position in the coming days. According to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, Logan Morrison is expected to be activated from the disabled list for Monday’s series opener against…
