Starling Marté is playing on a whole different level

Starling Marté is playing on a whole different level

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports Marté began the season as one of the hottest hitters for the Marlins. He’s crushing in his contract year! Right after the 2020 World Series, the Marlins faced a decision on whether to exercise Starling Marté’s team option for 2021 or not. Eventually, they did. And so far, it has paid off big despite the small sample size of the young MLB season. After his first 10 games of the regular campaign, he’s slashing .342/.435/.447/.882 thanks to 13 hits across 38 at-bats. He’s recorded two doubles, one triple, three runs batted in, nine...

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports The Marlins are suddenly the hottest team in the NL East! Wild stats from Tuesday’s offensive eruption Your browser does not support HTML5 video. The Marlins picked up another win on Tuesday, but there was nothing ordinary about it. Here are the numbers that made it anomalous: Adam Duvall racked up seven runs batted in, tying the Marlins franchise record. This was the first time that any Marlin had ever reached that mark against the Braves. Adam Duvall joins @AROD as the only 2 players since 1954 to have multiple games with 7 RBI, 2 HR,...

MIA 14, ATL 8; The Adam Duvall Revenge Tour

MIA 14, ATL 8; The Adam Duvall Revenge Tour

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports The Marlins won a slugfest thanks to their biggest free agent pick-up. After years of dreading matchups against the Atlanta Braves and the notorious “Marlins killers” throughout their lineup, it seems the roles have been reversed in Miami’s favor. Adam Duvall made the Braves sorely regret letting him go this past offseason with his performance Tuesday night. Duvall came into this series struggling to get his bat hot. The veteran outfielder went 3-for-23 with 1 RBI in his first seven games. But halfway through this four-game set, he is...

Offishial news, 4/13/21: Winning streak; Eddie’s birthday & injury update

The Marlins improved to 3-6 on the young season with a comeback over the Braves in Monday’s series opener. A sloppy success Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Neither the Marlins nor Braves played particularly well in Monday’s series opener. Even the umpires struggled out there. But hey, at least it was competitive. Playing in front of their largest crowd of the 2021 season (announced attendance: 11,830), the Fish completed their most improbable comeback so far, scoring four unanswered runs to win 5-3 in 10 innings. James Rowson took over as acting manager for an...

Offishial news, 4/12/21: Brinson’s beef; new season of ETS; Braves series on deck

Photo by Sarah Stier/ It’s gonna be the busiest week yet for the Miami Marlins with games scheduled on each of the next seven days. Sweet Lew gets screwed Lewis Brinson should have seen this coming. Once all of the veteran Marlins hitters made it through spring training injury-free and MLB confirmed there would be no designated hitter in the National League, that left Brinson without a substantial role on the active roster. He squeezed onto the Opening Day roster, but as soon as the club needed to fill out the rotation with a fifth starting pitcher, he was the most...

Sunday Rainy Sunday: Scheduled Bullpen Game Called Due to Rain

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The 59th anniversary of the New York Mets first contest in franchise history bore some parallels to that inaugural game. A matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals on April 11, 1962 at Busch Stadium I - an 11-4 loss highlighted by a 3-3 day from Mr. Cardinal himself Stan Musial - the baseball-reference page for this game showed a game time temperature of 55 degrees and field conditions that simply read as “soaked.” Fast-forward 59 years to the day, and the Sunday matchup against the Miami Marlins - coincidentally featuring game time...

Offishial news, 4/11/21: Yimi gets the 9th; minor league signings

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The latest on the Miami Marlins in the midst of their first 2021 road trip. Bass demoted After surrendering two home runs and nine total baserunners to his first 16 batters faced, Anthony Bass is getting a break from closer’s duties. He wasn’t even among the three pitchers used for high-leverage relief work in Saturday’s win—that save opportunity went to Yimi García. In January, Bass became the first pitcher to receive a guaranteed, multi-year major league contract from the current Marlins ownership group. Relative to the rest of...

MIA 3, NYM 0; Against the odds, Marlins snap losing streak

Photo by Sarah Stier/ The Marlins get a much-needed victory on the backs of their two youngest players. You couldn’t have dreamed of a better outcome for the Miami Marlins on Saturday. Not only did they prevail against the National League’s finest pitcher and humiliate the main villain of Thursday’s series opener, but the two most highly regarded prospects on their active roster led the charge. This is what an ideal game looks like during a season in which the Fish want to validate their 2020 playoff berth while identifying core pieces for their true championship...
