Miami Marlins: Does Justin Bour have a chance at being an All-Star?

There are two players who deserve to represent the Miami Marlins when the All-Star Game goes into Marlins Park in July. The first one, Marcell Ozuna, appears to be an obvious choice.

Grading the Miami Marlins 2017 draft class

The Miami Marlins have not experienced the October madness of playoffs since the year 2003, when they became the World Series Champions and boasted a record of 91-71 under managers Jeff Torborg and Jack McKeon.

Minor leaguer wears heavy leather work gloves when he bats

Things are always a bit unorthodox in Minor League Baseball. But that normally comes in the form of strange promotions.

After leaving Chicago, Miami in turbulent fashion, Ozzie Guillen wants to manage again

In Miami, Guillen lasted just one season as a high-priced team failed to meet expectations, while Guillen himself came under...

Twitter study finds no-hitter jinx does not exist

A no-hitter is once of the most dominant performances in all of sports.

Another Marcell Ozuna Breakout

Entering the 2017 season, Marcell Ozuna had been a roughly average offensive player over the course of his career and slightly better than that in the field.

He’s getting on base nearly 40% of the time and has powered up with...
