The Miami Marlins made some big moves during the offseason in order to turn the team into a perennial playoff contender.
There is a genuine excitement surrounding the Miami Marlins this spring that hasn’t been seen in a very long time.
Ichiro Suzuki has passed his physical and finalized a $2 million, one-year contract with the Miami Marlins.
It’s been a rocky road for Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria over the past several years.
Giancarlo Stanton expects to be back for the start of spring training. Jose Fernandez is projected to return around the All-Star break. And the Miami Marlins believe they’ll be ready to rejoin playoff contention in 2015.
On the same day the Marlins ended their 2014 season by getting no-hit by Jordan Zimmermann of the Washington Nationals, Miami began looking ahead by giving manager Mike Redmond a two-year contract extension.
The Miami Marlins have complained in the past of poor attendance at games. But when a record crowd shows up for Opening Day and massive lines for concessions ensued, the team had a message for disgruntled fans…get over it.
It’s not a publicly-funded ballpark or a jungle in the Philippines, but Miami Marlins President and Survivor castaway David Samson is making himself at home on a new stage- the one at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center.
“I always wanted to be on the show,” said Miami Marlins David Samson about the CBS hit show, “Survivor.” “If you have a dream, just do it. Don’t sit on the couch. Just go for it.”
Much like the Miami Marlins playoff chances in recent years, team president David Samson’s appearance on CBS’ hit show Survivor was over before it even really got started.
