Marlins Video Recap: Phelps Fishes Himself Out of a Jam

The Miami Marlins earned a hard-fought victory in San Francisco today.  In the waning stages of the game, San Fran tried to forge a comeback.  One such time was when they loaded the bases with no one out in the bottom of the eighth.  David Phelps was on the mound in a big spot, with the Marlins only up by one run. Needless to say, Phelps was able to get out of the inning unscathed...

Miami Marlins: who is most to blame for 2016’s slow start?

The Miami Marlins’ early season struggles have been a direct cause of the team’s anemic offense. Leading into Sunday’s game with the San Francisco Giants, the Marlins have posted a pathetic 5-11 record. The main issue behind the losing record is the lethargic offense, which is ranked 22nd in runs scored. Miami has not been able to find consistent play, averaging 5.8 runs per...

A monkey and a sea monster tried to interrupt Martin Prado’s post-game interview.

Postgame interviews are often inherently silly, especially in baseball, when a player does something particularly heroic. Usually, that means they’re getting a pie in the face or doused with Gatorade or even potentially chocolate syrup. So when the Marlins broadcast crew wanted to chat with Martin Prado after he lead the Fish to a win over the Nats, things went a bit crazy. Normal...
