2016 Miami Marlins Preview & Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep

Full seasons from Jose Fernandez and Giancarlo Stanton would be nice, and the lineup has a few other guys who should be on your radar. Also, aren't you curious to see the effect of new hitting coach Barry Bonds?(Note: When a player's fantasy draft status is mentioned - e.g., "he's an SP4" - the number is based on 12-team mixed leagues. ADP references are from NFBC drafts.)ALSO SEE...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Miami Marlins Team Preview

2015 Quick Overview Finishing 71 – 91, the 2015 season wasn’t the kindest of years for the Miami Marlins on either side of the field. Ranking in the bottom fifth of the league in runs scored, home runs, on base percentage, and slugging percentage among others, the Marlins failed to generate a game plan that could consistently win games. The loss of Giancarlo Stanton for a good...

Could the Miami Marlins contend in 2016?

Last season, the National League East was by far the worst division in baseball.  As a division, they “boasted” a .462 winning percentage and three of its five teams lost 90+ games.  The Nationals won 83 games and finished second, so they very nearly had only one team with a winning record. Even though the Mets won the pennant and put it together when it counted, top to bottom...

Farewell to Marlins Park 1.0

Marlins Park opened to much fanfare four years ago, and while the team quickly abandoned what it had taken on as its new operational identity, there’s no abandoning a ballpark that fast. Not that the Marlins want to leave, anyway, but — love it or hate it — Marlins Park will be around for a while yet. One of the funny things about the stadium is that it took exactly one game...

Marlins 2B Dee Gordon celebrates $50 million extension with McDonald’s

Put yourself in the position of a professional athlete who just had an incredible season and earned a lengthy extension, let’s say $50 million over five years. With that kind of money, you’ll celebrate and treat yourself with a nice and expensive meal, right? Well, not if you’re Miami Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon.

Marlins moving in their fences

Since Marlins Park opened in 2012, hitters have only hit 412 homers, the second fewest in the Majors during that span, behind only AT&T Park in San Francisco. I’d choose to believe it’s because everyone is scared of that garish home run sculpture in left-center field, but the Marlins believe it’s because the fences are too far. So, the Marlins are moving in the fences...

Three MLB teams that should consider relocation

Even in the heart of the NFL’s playoff season, the buzzword around the nation’s biggest sports entity has been “relocation.” With the Rams leaving St. Louis for Los Angeles (and the Chargers potentially being not too far behind), the second biggest market in the U.S. will once again have at least one team in town for the first time in more than two decades.

The Other Weapon In the Marlins Bullpen

Yesterday I wrote about Carter Capps, who last year was on his way to an almost impossible season before elbow trouble sent him off. The idea was to remind you of just what Capps was able to do over 30-odd innings, and in support of that, I noted that Capps had baseball’s most unhittable pitch if you set the minimum to 100 of a given pitch type thrown. That’s important — Capps’...

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded, but more along the lines of a “what if” scenario.
