  1. Marlins not expected to significantly increase payroll

    “We’re getting ready for another season, and we’re going to win more,” Marlins president David Samson assured Christina De Nicola of FOX Sports Florida late last week. “I promise you this: We’re not going to lose 100 games next year. Not even close.” But that doesn’t mean that Marlins fans should be expecting a wheeling-and-dealing…

  2. The Marlins “promise” they won’t lose 100 games next year

    David Samson

    After unloading a bunch of talent and alienating their fanbase, the Marlins finished with the second-worst record in baseball this season at 62-100. We’ve seen a front office shakeup since the end of the year, with Michael Hill replacing Larry Beinfest as president of baseball operations and Dan Jennings taking over as general manager, but…

  3. Henderson Alvarez with the unlikeliest of no-hitters

    Sep 29, 2013, 3:51 PM EST

    Henderson Alvarez

    Actually, it was prime no-hitter time: a meaningless game on the final day of the season. The opposing team had nothing to play for and thus started several backups. The umps were also looking to get things over with in a hurry. If there was ever a day for Henderson Alvarez to throw a no-no,…

  4. Henderson Alvarez completes wild walkoff no-hitter

    Here’s something we definitely didn’t see coming. Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez has no-hit the American League Central-champion Tigers through seven innings Sunday in Miami. It’s not a fully-loaded Detroit lineup for Game 162, but Prince Fielder is in there along with Jhonny Peralta, Omar Infante and a couple other regulars. Miguel Cabrera, Austin Jackson, Victor…

  5. Brandon Phillips names his All-Swag Team

    brandon phillips

    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, mostly about swag. Phillips says that baseball needs more of it, saying, “That’s exactly why African-Americans don’t play baseball. [There’s] no passion in the game. You’ve got to be like a robot. Look at basketball. Look at football. When you make an exciting…

  6. It’s time for your regularly scheduled “Marlins aren’t trading Giancarlo Stanton” update

    giancarlo stanton getty

    Every couple months there’s a new report about how the Marlins aren’t planning to trade Giancarlo Stanton, so here’s the latest: Joe Frisaro of MLB.com talked to a “plugged-in MLB source” who doesn’t see “any scenario” in which they trade the 23-year-old outfielder. Stanton is under team control through 2016 and made the minimum salary…

  7. Logan Morrison wants the fences moved in at Marlins Park

    Marlins Park boasts some of the largest outfield dimensions of any stadium in the majors, so it’s no surprise that some of the team’s hitters would like to see the fences moved in. Count Logan Morrison among them. Morrison has blasted five home runs in 158 plate appearances on the road this season compared to…

  8. The rot in Miami

    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…

  9. Frank Francisco leaves with wrist injury

    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. Manager Terry Collins had called on Francisco after Christian Yelich led off the inning with a double. The right-hander promptly struck out Giancarlo Stanton, then…

  10. Giancarlo Stanton rejoins Marlins lineup after foot injury

    Sep 10, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    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…

  11. Giancarlo Stanton out of Marlins’ lineup on Sunday due to right foot and ankle discomfort

    Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton was lifted from Saturday’s 9-2 loss to the visiting Nationals after experiencing soreness in his right foot and ankle, and he is not in Miami’s starting lineup for Sunday afternoon’s series finale against Washington. This according to MLB.com beat writer Joe Frisaro. X-rays taken Saturday afternoon turned up negative on the…

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

    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…

    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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    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…

  18. Jose Fernandez dazzles as Marlins top Pirates

    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. The right-hander allowed two runs on five hits, walking none and striking out a whopping 13 batters. He…

    The Marlins are finally back on the board.

It was the team’s first run since Derek Dietrich drove in two runs in the…

    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…

    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…
