The name becoming impossible to forget

The name becoming impossible to forget

Brian Anderson had an excellent all-around first half for the Marlins. Brian Anderson isn’t the star we were expecting, but he’s definitely the star we need. Hanley Ramírez. Chris Coghlan. Giancarlo Stanton. The list goes on and on with great Marlins rookie hitters, but we may be witnessing the best yet. As a relentless worker with a quiet demeanor, Andy has had to deal with a lot in the first half of a rookie season. As a career third baseman, he was widely expected to man the hot corner coming out of spring training as veteran Martín Prado was dealing with a knee injury. Things...

10 stats to summarize the first half of the 2018 Marlins season

10 stats to summarize the first half of the 2018 Marlins season

It’s been weird, mostly mediocre baseball, but also...fun? Have you been following the Marlins this season? It’s OK to say no! Even the most optimistic among us forecasted a losing record for them in 2018, and some fans cannot bear to watch a team that’s doomed for short-term irrelevance. However, the first three-and-a-half months have been surprisingly entertaining. Freed from any expectations, every win is extra sweet and sustained winning that we’ve witnessed in recent weeks suggests the rebuild is slightly ahead of schedule. The All-Star break provides a breather for everybody...

Marlins Man still hasn’t found identity after “divorce” from team

Marlins Man still hasn’t found identity after “divorce” from team

Laurence Leavy promises big ticket giveaway in Sept. 17 return to Marlins Park. We haven’t mentioned Marlins Man once on Fish Stripes during the 2018 regular season. I should know—I have personally edited the vast majority of our 406 published articles over that span, and made sure to skim the rest of them. If a writer even tried to submit Laurence Leavy content (none of them have), I would’ve rejected it on the grounds that he is irrelevant to the present and future of the Marlins. Leavy blocked the Fish Stripes Twitter account on the morning of Opening Day, presumably for this...
