Enjoying Casey McGehee...for now

If you have read my stuff for a while, you know that I am a sucker for the comeback story. I love the improbable when a guy falls out of baseball only to come back a year or more later and have some success. There has been Vogelsong in the past and this year the Sizemore story in Boston. Another one that might not be as much in the news is what Casey McGehee is doing down in Miami...

Ian Desmond tells Tom Koehler of the Marlins to throw it over the plate

There's no better way to make a 6-0 (soon to be 11-0) drubbing in the 4th inning watchable than by telling the opposing pitcher to throw it over the plate (turn up the volume on the Vine above). And so, Ian Desmond told Tom Koehler to throw it over the plate after coming high and inside, has words with Jarrod Saltalamacchia, benches clear, etc. (Vines, Screencap, via MASN/MLB TV)

Take a Look at Nathan Eovaldi

Nathan Eovaldi is probably the pitcher that has most caught my eye in the early part of this season.  Obviously it is still early, and the analysis of the current season is based on a 3-start (19.1 innings) sample.  But there is a lot to like about Eovaldi’s performance to this point.  Eno Sarris at Fangraphs also seemed to notice, and did a write-up about Eovaldi between his...

Miami Marlins: Fish return home to face Nats

Fish look to end skid at home Thanks largely to a winless six-game road trip, the Miami Marlins have lost seven straight games.

The Miami Marlins lost to the Philadelphia Phillies in extra innings last night and the Phillies will attempt to sweep the Marlins this afternoon.  The Marlins are off to a slow start at 5-7 but a win today would move them back ahead of the Phillies (5-6).  They've been without Rafael Furcal all season and had to scratch Derek Dietrich last night.  Needless to say, the Marlins...

So for now he gives Marlins fans something to cheer for--whether its at home or in enemy territory--by blasting...

WATCH: Jayson Werth does great bat flip after grand slam

Your browser does not support iframes. Jayson Werth must have been pretty ticked off after the Miami Marlins intentionally walked young second baseman Anthony Rendon to load up the bases in the 8th and bring him up to the plate, because he burned them for a grand slam and gave a mean bat flip afterwards.
