MARLINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Giancarlo Stanton Trade Isn’t Only Offseason Move Red Sox Should Pursue

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is the big fish. He’s not the only fish. Reeling in Stanton this offseason admittedly would be the best-case scenario for the Red Sox, almost regardless of the package they’d be forced to assemble. He’s young (turning 25 in November). He’s under team control through 2016. And he’s that good. But if Boston really wants to avoid...

Giancarlo Stanton on Marlins: “Five months,doesn’t change five years”

Giancarlo Stanton has predictably been a driving force in the success of the Miami Marlins this season. The All-Star slugger boasts a .299/.407/.566 line with 33 home runs and 97 RBI though 130 games played this season but those thinking that the suddenly competitive Marlins have a better chance to re-sign Stanton need to think twice. “Five months,” Stanton said, via Yahoo Sports...

Golden Sombrero: Jarrod Saltalamacchia

Stanton: ‘Five months doesn’t change five years’ for Marlins

The Miami Marlins are still in playoff contention, and April 25th came and went a long time ago. Imagine that. Currently 65-65 and 10 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East, the Marlins are just three games back in the Wild Card race. Could they actually make the playoffs. As expected, Giancarlo Stanton […]

How Can We Make Sense of Adeiny Hechavarria?

There’s a regular shortstop in the National League you probably don’t think about very often. The Marlins, though, think about Adeiny Hechavarria very often, and they happen to think very much of him. Which, of course, is implied by his still being a regular shortstop, but Hechavarria’s coming off a weekend in which he made […]

Adeiny Hechavarria continuing case for Gold Glove with slick fielding

DENVER -- How many uffs does it take to win a Gold Glove? The answer may come at the end of the season if Miami Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria continues making highlight-reel plays. Over the past month, national media has taken notice -- but no web gem received as much attention as Saturday's catch in the 12th inning. With runners at the corners and two outs, Justin Morneau...

The Marlins’ Young Outfield One of Baseball’s Best

The National League Wild Card race is hardly a race at all. It feels as though the teams vying for the playoffs’ back door don’t actually want to claim the prize, struggling as the contenders have in recent months. There is another team on the outside of that cohort or recent playoff squads, something of […]

Miami Marlins: Alvarez’s return improves playoff chances

The return of starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez to the Miami Marlins’ starting pitching rotation drastically improves the team’s chances of making the postseason, as the game on Saturday, Aug. 16 showed.

Miami Marlins: Brad had no “Hand” in loss

Five runs, two runs. Five runs, two runs. Those are the amount of runs that the Miami Marlins have scored in their last four contests. As you would expect, the outcomes were: win, loss, win, loss. On Friday, Aug. 15, Miami wasted a solid outing by starting pitcher Brad Hand to fall to the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2. Hand wasn’t superb in the outing. His first inning was anything...

Jarred Cosart could be great find for Miami Marlins

When the Miami Marlins sent their top-third base prospect Colin Moran, outfielder Jake Marisnick, pitching prospect Francis Martes and a 2015 compensatory draft pick to the Houston Astros in exchange for right-handed starter Jarred Cosart, outfielder Enrique Hernandez and outfielder Austin Wates, some fans questioned the team’s wisdom in again dealing their top-third base prospect...
