How Does Bryce Harper’s Injury Affect the Marlins?

bryce-harper-lightbox

In his latest commercial, Bryce Harper is shown soaked in Gatorade hitting a pitch out of the park against a generic Marlins pitcher (who is also soaked in Gatorade). The ball literally transforms into a screaming Bryce Harper as it travels out of the park. Maybe that scream was Harper after he destroyed his thumb sliding into third base? The Nationals are reporting that Harper will be … [Read more...]

Jeffrey Loria Hasty, Impatient, Competitive and Perhaps Incompetent

Jeffrey Loria Expos

The Marlins have been swept by the Braves in their opening series for the 2013 season. The Marlins offense scored a total of 2 runs in the series while the Braves dropped 6 in the top of the 6th alone yesterday in their series ending win. The fans showed up for pretty much one game, then didn't come back for the rest of the series. The 62,000 tally for a three game series is the smallest at … [Read more...]

With Competition Tightening in NL East, Marlins Look For Sustainability

The Nationals won the division last season built on the strength of young pitching and strong offensive assets like Bryce Harper. The Braves are looking to reclaim their ownership of the NL East by signing the Upton brothers this offseason to boost up their offense and defense. The Phillies are always looking for ways to improve and they attempted to do so via a questionable trade with Texas for … [Read more...]

Marlins’ Ozzie Guillen calls Nationals rookie Bryce Harper ‘unprofessional’ – BostonHerald.com

Ozzie Guillen

MIAMI — Since the Nationals arrived this week, Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen had been heaping praise on their 19-year-old rookie outfielder Bryce Harper, who was coming off his first trip to the All-Star Game. However, after Sunday’s 4-0 loss, Guillen’s compliments turned to contempt as he felt that Harper had shown him disrespect when he stepped to the plate in the fourth inning. While Guillen … [Read more...]

Marlins Claim Series Win With Sanchez Gem

He's on fire. Anibal Sanchez now has a 3-0 record with a 1.83 ERA in his last six starts, including a 1-0 result this afternoon in Washington. Sanchez was spectacular, striking out 9, and helping push his team forward with another win over their cheeky NL East rivals. Meanwhile the Braves, who had been silently climbing up to meet the Marlins, lost today. The lone run on offense in this game … [Read more...]

Omar Infante’s Slide Saves Fish

Should you take the blue pill or the red pill? Omar Infante obviously was channeling Neo from the Matrix as he slid into home last night during the 11th inning. His acrobatic move gave the Marlins the go ahead run. It was also the 7th win in a row for the Marlins over the Nats in Washington. The Fish were looking for vengeance, dropping two of three against the Nats while on their homestand back … [Read more...]

Pancakes Power Sanchez’s Win

The Marlins were a hot teaming coming into this series but struggled with their pitching and lost two games in a row to a team they normally play big brother over. Who knew it was Anibal Sanchez's mother that would provide the fuel for a near no-hitter as his son took the mound this afternoon. Sanchez struck out 11 batters as the Fish avoided the sweep and took the third game in what was a … [Read more...]

Nyjer Morgan is a Douche: Fallout From Roid Rage

Nyjer Morgan

Clearly, the guy is not using steroids but also it is clear the guy is off his meds. I didn't cover the "brawl" because, well, everyone else did. No reason to jump into the muck and the mire. Besides, as noted elsewhere, Nyjer Morgan has a recent history of problems. He is showing off, trying to get attention. No need to give him any more. Besides, he's just a douche. Can't play a lick, so what … [Read more...]

Marlins Sweep Nationals and He Shall Livan

Ricky Nolasco

It was a strange night where the Fish couldn't seem to avoid a rain delay - in another part of the country. There was a void at Nationals Park, too. (Both elements must have made the Marlins feel like they were at home.) There was a late night, a triple turned into a home run, and an oversized ginger kid wearing a tight Elmo shirt. No one took the bait on that one, but it does beg, should anyone … [Read more...]

Marlins Losing Ground; Could Shift to Division Be The Way?

No matter how many games the Marlins win, it just seems like the Rockies mirror them. When the Marlins lose, that's when the Rockies let up and lose. It is a shell game right now for the NL Wildcard. The Marlins sit 5 games out and have the San Francisco Giants merged between them and the leading Rockies. Is this still a realistic possibility? There are 26 games left for the Fish. That means … [Read more...]
