He’s not been on the baseball field this year, but New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is still pocketing plenty of cash. But it’s not the Yankees giving A-Rod his latest payday, but rather a home buyer in South Florida.
In a move that surprises no one who has been following the Miami Marlins, owner Jeffrey Loria told the print media Monday evening that the team will not be offering All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton a contract this year.
The Miami Marlins have one superstar player left on the roster and he may not be around for long. According to Fox Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Seattle Mariners and Marlins have had discussions on Seattle acquiring Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: the Miami Marlins have a superstar in the making on the roster, swear they’re not going to trade him, and then word gets out the team is listening to offers for said player.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have seen just about enough of Giancarlo Stanton. Aaron Harang was the latest Dodgers pitcher to give up a home run to Stanton, allowing a first-pitch solo shot to center field in the fourth inning of a 6-2 loss to the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
The last time the Miami Marlins had to deal with a player with the wrong name, the team lost a closing pitcher for part of the season. Luckily for the Marlins, this time around the player who will be called by a different name is doing it voluntarily.
The Florida Marlins have been on a tear in the month of July after completing one of the worst June’s in baseball history. The Fish are currently 11-4 in July and have been getting a lift from everyone on the roster, especially the lead-off spot in the batting order.
