The Miami Marlins once upon a time had a great infield defense led by Mike Lowell, Luis Castillo, Alex Gonzalez, and Derrek Lee. It was questionable how great that defense was with that quartet managing the infield, but the group won several Gold Gloves...

Exploring the Marlins Improved Offense

At the beginning of the year, if you had said that Dee Gordon would miss half the season and that Giancarlo Stanton would be an approximately league average hitter, it would probably have been pretty damn safe to assume that the Miami Marlins would not be in contention in 2016. After all, this team was essentially the poster boy for the “stars and scrubs” strategy. The top of...

The Miami Marlins are Finally Coming into Their Own

Back in 2012, Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria made a large promise to fans of the ball club after a $515 million stadium, filled with home run sculptures, aquariums, and bobble-heads, was built in Miami. He promised them a winning team. After years of mediocrity as the Florida Marlins, the team packed their bags and headed for Miami, Florida in search of a new beginning of some...
