Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports South Florida’s own would bring excitement and plenty of Opening Day home runs to Marlins Park. Time to spend Bruce Sherman’s and Derek Jeter’s money! Entering the third year under new Marlins ownership, fans expect to see significant improvement at the major league level. Some of that improvement will surely come from within, but prospects—as they say—will break your heart. Successful MLB rebuilds make sure to surround their young cores with veterans who can bring credibility and reliable production. Free agent additions figure to be critically...

We regularly send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Marlins fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse. The Marlins have contended for a championship only a few times in their 27-season history. They won it all in 1997 and 2003! But in the majority of their campaigns, the Fish have been irrelevant outside of South Florida. Could 2020 mark a long-awaited return to October baseball? An unprecedented...

New Fish Stripes contributor LJ Garcia joins Ely (0:45) to explain how he would approach the 2019-20 offseason, and to discuss the recent news of Don Mattingly’s Hall of Fame candidacy and Martín Prado’s pending retirement.

President of baseball operations Michael Hill—and every member of the fanbase—understands the urgency for Miami to get better. How much progress will the Fish make?

Would the Marlins really sacrifice a draft pick to sign Ozuna?

Would the Marlins really sacrifice a draft pick to sign Ozuna?

Photo by Mark Brown/ More importantly, should they? All options are reportedly on the table for the Marlins in terms of how to improve upon a dismal 57-105 record in 2020. As always, free agency will be vital for adding veteran leadership to a young team and plugging a few gaps while some of the organization’s top prospects continue to develop in the minor leagues. However, considering the team’s dedication to bolstering their farm system and building from within since the new owners took over, it came as a bit of a surprise Thursday when Michael Hill told assembled media that the...

Solving the Riddle of Super Two

Solving the Riddle of Super Two

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports JT Riddle has earned Super Two status, and is eligible for arbitration. What move should the Marlins make? When the Miami Marlins formally declined their club option on Starlin Castro last week, they also reinstated four players from the 60-day IL. One of those was JT Riddle, who may have some input on what he should be paid in 2020. Riddle is part of a group of 23 MLB players who are now eligible for salary arbitration thanks to their so-called Super Two status. As dictated by Major League Baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, the top 22% of...
