Does Pablo López still deserve All-Star selection?

Photo by David J. Griffin/Icon Sportswire via Will López’s recent mediocrity overshadow his award-winning April? Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week we ask questions of the most plugged-in Miami Marlins fans and fans across the country. Sandy Alcantara is assured of being selected to the 2022 National League All-Star roster. Even though he’s sidelined by a back injury, Jazz Chisholm Jr. is almost locked in as well—he’s the favorite to be voted in by MLB fans as the team’s starting second baseman, and if not, he has a...

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Ely Sussman wants the Marlins to pursue big moves this trade season, but these players should be off limits. No matter what the Marlins do leading up to the 2022 MLB trade deadline, Ely views these 12 players as temporarily untouchable (for very different reasons): Controllable cornerstones: Sandy Alcantara, Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Eury Pérez (4:30) Precious bats: Garrett Cooper and Nick Fortes (10:15) Don’t sell low: Avisaíl García, Jacob Stallings, Trevor Rogers and Kahlil Watson (15:00) Let ‘em get healthy: Jesús Luzardo and Jake Eder...

MIA 4, STL 3: Sandy’s Savior

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports In arguably the biggest outing of his career, Alcantara paced Miami in his 2nd CG of the season. In a day that saw the Miami Marlins lose Jazz Chisholm Jr. - the current leading vote-getter in All-Star voting among NL 2nd Baseman - for an unknown period of time with a reported back strain, Wednesday’s series finale seemed a sad reminder of what could be a long stretch without their young superstar. Then, fans took solace in remembering that Wednesday also marked the latest edition of Sandy-day, as the Marlins’ ace, Sandy Alcantara, was...

Mets cash in on key replay, Lindor's big day to take down Marlins, Sandy Alcantara

NYM 5, MIA 3; Lindor, Mets Beat Sandy and the Marlins

Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports The Fish couldn’t overcome Lindor’s hot hitting and some tough breaks. Miami, FL—Five days after he defeated the New York Mets in Queens, Sandy Alcantara was tasked with the same assignment on Friday night at loanDepot Park. The Marlins welcomed the Metropolitans into town as a stronger ball club than they were the last time they faced each other—Jesús Aguilar and Jesús Sánchez were reinstated from the injured list in the interim and were both in the lineup for the series opener. After two quick outs in the top of the first, Marlin...

Mets vs. Marlins prediction, odds: Sandy Alcantara a tough draw

The New York Mets are sitting pretty with the best record and third-best run differential in the National League, but they find themselves as underdogs against the Miami Marlins on Friday night. The Fish, who sit 11.5 games behind the Mets in the NL East and are four games below .500, are currently sitting at...

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Ely Sussman outlines the case for the Marlins ace to be in the running for an award that’s usually reserved for position players. As underwhelming as this 2022 Marlins season has been, imagine where they’d be without Sandy Alcantara! The MLB leader in innings pitched has almost single-handedly carried the Fish to wins in seven of his last eight starts, allowing the club’s relievers to rest and keeping Miami within shouting distance of the National League Wild Card spots. Ely discusses the Friday, Saturday and Sunday games between the...

MIA 6, NYM 2: Grand Entrance

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Business as usual for Sandy as Jerar makes his presence felt in grand fashion. Father’s Day in Flushing, Queens would see many a Mets’ dad depart the grounds of Citi Field bluer than the shades of their respective team’s jerseys. Making his 100th career big league appearance, Sandy Alcantara would exude his usual efficiency on the mound, limiting the Mets to 2 runs over 8 innings in Miami’s 6-2 victory. The Marlins’ ace has now pitched 7 or more innings in 8 consecutive outings, and leads the Majors with 99.1 innings...

MIA 2, PHI 3; What is There to Say at This Point?

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ For the first time since May 6, the Marlins lost a Sandy Alcantara start. Philadelphia, PA—You think the game is going one way, and then it flips a U-turn and goes the other way. And it all happens on one pitch. Sandy Alcantara was amazing, Rojas and Berti gave this team a chance, and it was all ultimately wasted after Sandy was removed with the game on the line. His game was taken out of his hands. As usual, credit must be given to the opposing pitcher—none of this is a problem if Aaron Nola isn't on his A game. Nola is second in the majors...
