Marlins manager ejected after terrible call, announcers revolt

During Thursday night’s Reds-Marlins game, Miami manager Mike Redmond was ejected after a replay review reversed a call at home plate, claiming the new, flawed collision rule should have been applied.

Mike Redmond loses mind over controversial home plate ruling

MLB Major League Baseball wanted to eliminate those nasty collisions at home plate, the ones that make a catcher look like a tackling dummy. So in the off-season, they instituted a blocking the plate rule. A catcher couldn’t stand in a runner’s path if he didn’t have the ball. The wording was a bit more ambiguous but that was the gist. To my knowledge the rule hadn’t been...

When MLB Rule 7.13 — the home-plate collision rule — was adopted as an experiment for the 2014 season, many were curious as to how well it would actually work. It’s a good rule in theory.

DraftKings – That One Hit Wonder, Koehler Me Badd

Signs you should've had someone else name your group: mispelling a common word is NOT a band name. Seriously, try it. Tom Petty Andd The Heartbreakers...yeah, did ya need the extra 'd'? Rhetorical. No you didn't. Hrm, maybe it's just a sign you're a bad group and should give up music entirely? Well, history has made it so. In many ways, streamers are...

Marlins notes: Different players coming through as wins pile up

Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler fails hard at posterizing Jarrod Saltalamacchia (VIDEO)

via YouTube Before Sunday’s game, Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler tried to posterize (look it up) Jarrod Saltalamacchia.  He failed.  Miserably.  Instead of (pretend) dunking all over Salty and hanging on the rim, Koehler’s midsection went flying into Salty’s body and he went crashing to the dugout floor. The Marlins had won four in a row and eight of their last ten...

Continued surge could put Miami Marlins in buy mode for a starting pitcher

That’s why he’s looking forward to this week's home showdown against the first-place Nationals, who arrive Monday for a three-game series that carries more than one implication for the Marlins. The Marlins could not only...
