Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Marlins are still clinging to the highest winning percentage in the NL East entering the first “normal” off day of the 2020 season. Nine notables for week of Aug. 10 Every Monday morning, I’ll be leading off these Our Noticias pieces with a roundup of Marlins players who—for better or worse—are top of mind because of their recent performance: Jesús Aguilar—Aguilar’s 177 wRC+ is tops among all of Miami’s (healthy) lineup regulars. He’s been consistently hitting the ball hard and putting it in the air. Incredible impact on the field and in the...

15-year Marliniversary: Marlins pull off hidden-ball trick to stifle Arizona rally

15-year Marliniversary: Marlins pull off hidden-ball trick to stifle Arizona rally

Photo By Eliot J. Schechter/ Most football fans love a good trick play. In baseball however, they’re quite rare. On this day 15 years ago, the Florida Marlins absolutely fooled the Arizona Diamondbacks with the old “hidden-ball trick”. On Aug. 10, 2005, the Marlins had a big offensive night in a 10-5 win over Arizona at Dolphins Stadium, but it was a play in the field that had everyone talking after the game. The Marlins were clinging to a 6-5 lead in the top of the eighth inning as Arizona threatened to draw even. The Diamondbacks had runners on the corners with one out as Craig...

MIA 2, NYM 4; What went wrong in Marlins’ loss

MIA 2, NYM 4; What went wrong in Marlins’ loss

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The Marlins couldn’t take advantage of a shaky start by Mets ace Jacob deGrom or capitalize on scoring opportunities in the later innings. For the first time in 316 days, the Miami Marlins are on a losing streak. The Fish left 20 runners on base and went 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position in a 4-2 loss to the New York Mets. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. The Marlins made starting pitcher Jacob deGrom sweat early. After a relatively quiet first inning, deGrom walked the first two batters of the second inning on eight consecutive balls. ...

MIA 2, NYM 4; Jacob deGrom, Mets hand Marlins second straight defeat

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports For the first time in this odd, 60-game season, the Marlins drop a series. On to Buffalo! For the first time in 2020, the Miami Marlins dropped a series. Sunday afternoon at Citi Field, as Jacob deGrom, a former two-time Cy Young Award winner, exited after five innings and a one-run lead, but four scoreless frames from the New York Mets’ bullpen resulted in a 4-2 series-clinching victory. The Marlins are now 7-3 overall, which still tops the NL East standings. Pablo López, who was brilliant in his season debut against the Baltimore Orioles August 4,...

MIA 4, NYM 8: Mets finally end Marlins win streak

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports All good things must come to an end. On Saturday, the Mets rode the long ball to snap Miami’s six-game winning streak. Something had to give. Three different Mets homered Saturday to help put an end to Miami’s six-game winning streak and tie the series at one. It’s Miami’s second loss, and first since the COVID hiatus in Philadelphia. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. It was actually the Fish that drew first blood on offense.

Forget about batting average: Jesús Aguilar is doing his job

Forget about batting average: Jesús Aguilar is doing his job

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports Aguilar’s .259 batting average doesn’t fully capture the massive impact that he has had on the Marlins offense. Many of you would probably agree with me that batting average was a huge stat twenty years ago. If we were having this conversation back then, there would be serious concern about keeping a .259 hitter in the cleanup spot for a Marlins team with surprising playoff aspirations, right? But we’re in 2020. We evaluate using lots of statistics, old and new, to determine how good or bad a ballplayer is. That’s why we see beyond Jesús ...

MIA 4, NYM 3: Mejía, bullpen preserve early lead in series-opening W

Photo by Al Bello/ For the first time since 2009, the Marlins have caught fire out of the gate with seven wins in eight tries. This interminable Marlins road trip continues to exceed all expectations on the field. Francisco Cervelli provided breathing room early on Friday night, Humberto Mejía handed it off to a handful of relievers and the Fish eked out a 4-3 win over the Mets.
