Miami Marlins: Giancarlo Stanton’s NL MVP case

Bob Lutz of the Wichita Eagle wrote a column Aug. 27: “Clayton Kershaw is the National League MVP and it’s not that close.” Clayton Kershaw may soon add an NL MVP to his resume, but Giancarlo Stanton may have something to say about that. Oh, but it is, Bob, it certainly is. The Los Angeles Dodgers ace has somehow managed to outdo himself from the historic 2013 campaign he had...

Cosart tosses another gem for Marlins with win over Braves

Jarred Cosart hasn't merely been the Miami Marlins' best pitcher lately. He has kept their three-city trip from turning into a disaster. The right-hander, acquired from Houston in a trade-deadline deal, pitched the second of their three wins on the trip by shutting down the Braves for seven innings in a 4-0 victory Saturday at Turner Field. Donovan Solano provided the impetus...

Marlins Rumors: Giancarlo Stanton unsure of extension

The Marlins are finally somewhat relevant as September rolls around. The Fish have had a "lightning in a bottle" type seasons from several players, including Casey McGehee, Tom Koehler, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, and others. However, the key to Miami's success has been their 6'6'', 240 pound slugger in Giancarlo Stanton.#454338704 / gettyimages...

What Christian Yelich Hasn’t Done Once

I’m not gonna lie to you — there are a lot of things Christian Yelich hasn’t done once. Uncountable things. Infinite things. He hasn’t eclipsed 20 home runs in a season. He hasn’t hit a triple on the road. He hasn’t signed an eight-figure contract. He hasn’t grown to six and a half feet tall. […]

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...

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...
