FanPost Friday: Oh no...not him

Which player gave you the least confidence in the team when they hit the field? FanPost Friday Prompt: Which player of any team or era has made you feel the least confident when they hit the field? With the recent designation of Junichi Tazawa, some Marlins fans breathed a sigh of relief. Not that this comes anywhere close to fixing many of the team’s problems, it does move the spirit of the team from “yeah, we’re not here to win in the slightest” to “well, we might not win, but we’ll at least put up a scrappy fight.” Many of you, beloved commenters, have made it clear that...

Marlins recall lefties Adam Conley and Dillon Peters from Triple-A

Two familiar faces will be back with the Marlins. The team recalled left-handed pitchers Adam Conley and Dillon Peters on Friday afternoon from Triple-A New Orleans, filling the voids left by right-handers Junichi Tazawa and Tyler Cloyd. The Marlins designated Tazawa for assignment and optioned...

Don’t get your hopes up about the 2019 No. 1 draft pick

Don’t get your hopes up about the 2019 No. 1 draft pick

Barring some extreme injuries, it’s getting difficult to envision this team finishing with MLB’s worst record. As has been mentioned ad nauseam by baseball pundits, the Marlins did not enter this season with any aspirations to be good. Quite the contrary—they assembled a roster specifically to be not good. And from 35,000 feet, it appears that everything is going according to plan (stats updated entering May 2): 11-18 record, a 101-loss pace Minus-46 run differential, which is a deficit representative of a 10-19 team Junichi Tazawa on the active roster Mediocre MLB teams are...
