Quickie Update

This one article pretty much covers this weekend and the week ahead.

Friday, March 26, 2010


Andrew's Out

The Marlins' players' rep is sent down to the Minors to continue his career-long search for consistency. Clay Hensley looks to be Mr. No. 5.

Thursday, March 25, 2010


Knuckleball, Gyroball News

Wakefield starts against the Fish again, this time today in Ft. Myers, and now he has Dice-K following him up for a couple of innings.

Meanwhile, the threat of NL knucklers is lessened as the Mets sent R.A. Dickey to Minor League camp.

RECAP: The Fish got to Wakefield in his last inning but it wasn't enough.


Win, Win, Win, Win

To entice the 600 or so Marlins fans out there, here's a chance to win Opening Night tickets.

Wednesday's Wonders

The Marlins sent Cameron's roommate Mike Stanton down for 'seasoning', meaning he'll be back up sometime this season.

Strickland still has a shot. Nunez gave up a homer in today's Twins loss but he is still the closer.

Carroll strained his left oblique today, which could give an opening for Barden or Lamb to do some last-minute impressing.

It seems, though, to really be a part of this team, you'll either need a toy car or take up golf.

To finish up, time to participate in a moment of silent cantankerousness, to remember FishChunks fan and Samson skewer John Brattain, who passed a year ago today.

MacDougal's Gone, And Lots of Catchup

Yes, Mike was released, as was Turnbow, and Hunter was sent to AAA. (palmbeachpost)

Hunter joins Taylor, Cristhian, Scott, Jai and Scott, while Ceda went to AA and Jimenez gets tossed back to the Red Sox (which is good for Gaby). Kasey, Vinny and Danny are in Minor League camp.

Bryan is the Condor and Mike is the Worm. And Baker's running out of training time.

Samson is shocked, Shocked to discover someone may be hiring outsiders to build the stadium.

FORMER-FISH-NEWS: Wish a speedy recovery to Lenny. Matt has ended up in Texas. And Hermida's stunned by the sight of actual fans.

Puerto Rico Pussy-Footing

Maybe today, the inevitable announcement will be made, as all parties involved have a conference call to iron out whatever problems are left

RESOLUTION!!: As you probably know by now the San Juan Marlins officially debut June 28, and fittingly the game is not scheduled for live broadcast in Florida.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010


Another Update

The Fish give the Nats their first win this year. And Josh gave the game to the Braves. The Marlins also give Mike Lowell a look-see. On Monday the Fish beat the Twins. Hanley's back but Stanton's sore.
