  1. Marlins play dead as Phillies complete three-game sweep

    Sep 12, 2012, 7:17 PM EST

    Ozzie Guillen

    Is anyone involved with the Marlins even trying anymore? Ownership isn’t. The team played with just 12 position players today, even though the it’s September and rosters can be expanded to 40. Ozzie Guillen isn’t. Perhaps in protest of the limited roster he’s getting to work with, he just went three straight games without pinch-hitting…

    Emilio Bonifacio has been on the disabled list since mid-August with a sprained knee and told reporters today that he won’t play again this season. Bonifacio also missed time earlier this year with a sprained thumb, so he finishes the season with just 64 games after playing a career-high 152 games in 2011. He also…

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

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:06 AM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 6, Phillies 2: Pretty good day for me yesterday. I took Mookie and Carlo to an amusement park and the Braves swept the Phillies. All I needed as a nice steak or something to cap the day and it would have been perfection.  Only the Astros, Rockies and Cubs have a bigger division deficit than the…

  4. Eight walks + seven steals = 7-1 loss for Marlins

    Jul 25, 2012, 4:29 PM EST

    Ozzie Guillen

    The  Marlins worked seven walks against the Braves’ Tommy Hanson on Wednesday and followed  those up with many of their seven steals, yet they still ended up losing 7-1. With two apiece from Jose Reyes and Donovan Solano (Hanley Ramirez‘s replacement at third base), the Marlins became the first team this year to swipe seven…

  5. Marlins move center fielder Emilio Bonifacio to second base

    Jul 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Nyjer Morgan, Emilio Bonifacio

    Yesterday the Marlins traded starting second baseman Omar Infante to the Tigers and today they announced that Emilio Bonifacio will take over for him there after playing center field all season. Bonifacio has plenty of experience all over the diamond, including nearly 500 career innings at second base, and the move would allow the Marlins…

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

    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…

  7. Giancarlo Stanton to undergo knee surgery, out a month

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:01 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton‘s sore right knee failed its test Saturday when he was returned to Miami’s lineup, so he’ll undergo surgery to remove bone chips Sunday or Monday. Manager Ozzie Guillen said he expected Stanton to miss 4-6 weeks, but players have occasionally returned from such surgeries after two or three weeks. The Marlins will have…

  8. See the Brewers score two runs in .35 seconds

    Jul 3, 2012, 5:35 PM EST

    Brewers score twice

    With runners on first and second and one out in the third inning in the game against the Marlins on Tuesday, Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez hit a deep fly to center that got over the head of Justin Ruggiano. It led to this scene. What happened was that Norichika Aoki, who was on second,…

  9. Running down the rosters: Houston Astros

    Feb 9, 2012, 12:30 AM EST

    Wandy Rodriguez

    The 2012 Astros are pretty sure bets to lose 100 games, with the big question being whether they’ll top last year’s mark of 106 losses. That achievement will be tied to their ability to move the contracts of Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers and Carlos Lee. Ideally, they’d be able to sell off at least the…

    Feb 6, 2012, 5:30 PM EST

    Justin Ruggiano

    UPDATE: One week after declining the option of remaining in the Rays’ system Ruggiano has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Astros. ========== Tampa Bay’s 40-man roster housecleaning is costing Triple-A Durham its best players. This morning the Rays traded reigning Triple-A MVP Russ Canzler to the Indians for cash considerations after designating him…
