Hyde: The Marlins' real problem? So many teams trying to lose, everyone can't win | Commentary

As if baseball doesn’t have enough problems with its intrinsic slow-motion, payroll differences, more strikeouts than hits, and the ruse of steroids not coming around again, there’s a new bane on our ballfields: Serial Tanking. It’s not just unsavory, as was noted with the Heat’s playoff loss against...

Batavia rushes to straighten out embarrassing player-development operation

“In my opinion, baseball should not be in a town like that.” Former Muckdogs players explain that the short-season Marlins affiliate did not put them in a position to be successful. This season, the Miami Marlins celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. There have been two World Series championships, more than 4,000 major league games and countless name changes to their ballpark. It’s a significant milestone, inspiring an entire “Anniversary Weekend” in June, complete with alumni activities and special edition merchandise. That being said, this longevity pales in comparison...

Justin Bour: Building Block

Justin Bour: Building Block

The big lefty should be a part of the Marlins roster for the long haul. *All stats updated entering May 22 When Derek Jeter and company transitioned into the front office, one thing was clear: the Marlins were going to rebuild. The roster purge began last winter. Giancarlo Stanton? Gone. Marcell Ozuna? Adiós. Christian Yelich? See ya later. Another loss Monday night dropped the team’s current record to 17-30, 9 1⁄2 games back of the nearest National League postseason spot. There are no delusions about contending in 2018, so it’s time to start considering which of the remaining...

Mets blank the Marlins, offensive struggles continue for the Fish

Mets blank the Marlins, offensive struggles continue for the Fish

Getting hits with runners in scoring position was the issue of this game. There were not many positive take aways from the game tonight. The Mets limited the Marlins to five hits. Jason Vargas, a low quality pitcher, struck out seven Marlins while only walking one. The Marlins were able to string some hits together, but could not bring anyone home. The offense was pretty lifeless until the top of the fifth inning. Justin Bour started the inning striking out, but Cameron Maybin would follow that up with a walk. Miguel Rojas would then single, putting men on first and second. Lewis Brinson...

Marlins links, 5/21/18: Marlins lose game and PR battle, Brinson’s 1st grand slam

Monday’s links are full of pain and long-term promise. Marlins blow the game in the ninth inning Photo by Mike Zarrilli/ After a decent outing from Wei-Yin Chen, the Marlins had a sizable lead heading into the ninth inning, but weren't able to finish it off. Thanks to some poor pitching and some untimely defensive mistakes, Brad Ziegler and Tayron Guerrero gave up a combined six runs. Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson delivered the knockout blow with two outs. Wasting what was one of the best offensive performances by the Marlins, this was among the most painful...

Bullpen blows five run lead in the 9th, Marlins lose 10-9 to the Braves

What just happened? For the first three innings on Sunday, the game appeared to be headed for a good ole fashioned pitcher’s duel. Neither team could get much going, getting a grand total of zero hits combined in the first three frames. Miami broke things open in the fourth inning hanging a six spot. Justin Bour was balked home by Julio Teheran after he tripled to center field. Miguel Rojas singled home Starlin Castro a few batters later to load the bases for rookie center fielder Lewis Brinson, who capped off the scoring with a grand slam to left field. MUST C: Lewis Brinson absolutely...
