The squad that began showing up in Jupiter, Florida Monday barely resembles the Miami Marlins from 2012. All over the field the team will be new faces from the bullpen to the dugout and that has new manager Mike Redmond excited.
Even though it’s the middle of February, pitchers and catchers report for spring training on Monday and the Miami Marlins are preparing for what could be a historically bad season in 2013.
After a little winter hibernation, the Sports Agenda returns and what a perfect time, the BCS National Championship game is tonight. Plus, FIU has gone bye-bye ahead of its entrance to Conference USA. The Marlins vowed to not trade Giancarlo Stanton, uh, right. And hockey is..back?
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 dust still hasn’t settled from the implosion of the Miami Marlins franchise Tuesday night, but the truth of the matter is that Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Jose Reyes, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck are gone and the Marlins have to move on with what they got in return.
It all started so positive for the Miami Marlins in 2012. A brand new logo, the opening of a state-of-the-art stadium, a re-tooled roster, a World Series winning manager, it was supposed to be the launching point of a promising future. Instead, it has ended with a resounding thud as the team hits rock bottom.
In a season full of misery, the Miami Marlins have one diamond in quite a bit of rough. Twenty-two-year-old right fielder Giancarlo Stanton has made a name for himself as not only the Marlins’ best player, but also a power hitter the entire league should be wary of facing.
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.
One night after giving up 12 runs on 20 hits, the Diamondbacks appeared poised to turn the tables on the Marlins. Arizona’s first six hitters reached base and the Diamondbacks opened a 5-0 lead by the time Miami starter Ricky Nolasco recorded his first out. But after that promising start, Arizona’s bats went silent and the pitching gradually gave back the lead.
