Who is the current face, and who will it be in five years time? There is an infamous screenshot floating around the internet of a 2013 poll the MLB Network ran. It was part of a series encouraging fans to vote for the "face of the franchise" of their favorite team. 2013, you may recall, was fresh off the heels of the disastrous 2012 season and subsequent fire sale therein, so when...

Giancarlo Stanton is the most powerful hitter alive, and the Miami Marlins’ outfielder showed off his talents Saturday night in Team USA’s must-win World Baseball Classic game against the Dominican Republic.

Over the course of their admittedly limited franchise history, the Marlins have had a catcher win a Gold Glove Award three times. The first winner was Charles Johnson in 1995, a season in which, according to Baseball Prospectus, he was one of the less-valuable defensive catchers in the game.
