Marlins Day Off

But there's still baseball being played...


Wednesday, April 27, 2011


The View From the Top

The Marlins are alone in first place in the NL East for the first time in almost 2 years. And today, with a stadium overrun with trucked-in children on CBS4 Weather Day (and a hot one it is, too), the Fish will try to sweep the Dodgers out of town. Anibal will try to improve on his last outing, with Billingsley pitching for L.A.

Tewsday News

Sampson passes physical, being transitioned to starting role.

Gross never gets to physical, retires from baseball.

Former Fish puts gun to wife's head.

Hanley's back in the lineup tonight.

"Omar Infante is the epitome of Clutch RISP performance".

Edwin yells at Logan in a 'mature' way for running to celebrate last night's win.

Trader Jack tells those college kids a thing or two.

Tonight's game: Lefty Clayton Kershaw starts for L.A.; Chris Volstad starts for the Fish. Ethier goes for the MLB record for April hitting streaks tonight.


BOO-YAH: Ethier breaks the record, but the Marlins win anyway.

Monday, April 25, 2011


Dodge This

The Marlins won 2-of-3 from the Rockies, and now face the recently-repo'd Dodgers. Andre Ethier takes his hitting streak to Miami Gardens. Ricky Nolasco and Jon Garland toss spheroids.

Logan's foot feel better, and Hanley's taking a day off.


:OMAR: Infante gets the walk-off hit to beat L.A. 5-4.

Rubber Game

As the Fish gather up more players, a game is to be played. Josh against Ubaldo today.


Saturday, April 23, 2011


Holy Super Saturday

Sorry for the late the end of the third the game is tied at 1-1.


UGH: Rockies win 3-1.

Friday, April 22, 2011


The Mountains Arrive

The hot Rockies come to town. Jhoulys Chacin and Anibal Sanchez start.


COOL-DOWN: Fish win 4-1. And Anibal almost did it again.

Thursday, April 21, 2011


Blanking the Bucs?

Logan's strain will keep him out for a while. As for tonight, the Marlins will be attempting to sweep the Pirates' booty out of Florida, and possibly shutting them out again. Chris Volstad and James McDonald start. McCutchen's back with the Bucs tonight.


Wednesday, April 20, 2011



Logan is out of the lineup tonight after injuring his arch last night. His foot is being MRI'd. Morrison's been half of the Fish' offense so far this year.

Ricky Nolasco and Charlie Morton are tonight's starters.

Day-After-Day-Off News

First, for those keeping score, here were the scores from yesterday...


Samson wants more than just money if you want your company's name on the new stadium. In other stadium news, the site's steel workers are now back on the unemployment line, the (hopefully hurricane-proof) canopy has arrived to be stretched over the roof, close to a third of the seats are already installed, and a year-round restaurant with a "sports theme" (surprise!) is being searched for - all to get ready for the building's first event, which will probably be a college baseball game.

The stadium's upcoming completion leaves Mike Stanton just this season to break Gallaraga's JoeRobbie-ProPlayer-Dolphin-LandShark-Dolphins-SunLife homer record. Mike's slow start, though, has him hitting sixth tonight.

Juan C. Rodriguez had a chat session today.

The Pirates, who are having their best season-beginning road record since 2002, have come to town. Paul Maholm start for the Bucs. Josh Johnson, who has another career ready when he leaves baseball, starts tonight for the Fish.

This game ain't on TV, so get the Herald's Two-For-Tuesday coupon and go.


Sunday, April 17, 2011



A sunny, breezy day is expected in Philly. The go-away game will feature last night's duo, Cole and Anibal.


OOF: Phils win - Marlins go 5-3 on road trip.

Saturday, April 16, 2011


Saturday Showerday?

If there's a game today, the starters would be Cole Hamels and Anibal Sanchez.


RAIN-OUT: The Fish and Phils will make up today's washed-out game in a split-doubleheader on June 15, which will be the 13th game in a now-21-game stretch unbroken by a day off, the longest such stretch for the Marlins this year. (Philadelphia has a day off scheduled on June 13.)

Chilly in Philly

Craig reports on the shift of three Marlins games to another spot on the Miami radio dial. Since this move is because of the Heat's first-round playoff games, and since these first three moves only cover Games 1 through 4 of the first round of the playoffs, and since the Heat have a good chance to go all the way to the championship round, expect a lot more schedule shifting of Marlins radio games in Miami. I wondered last November, when the Heat moved to the Marlins flagship station, whether the Fish would be awarded the short end of the stick, so to speak. I guess we won't find out until the Marlins make the playoffs and start to interfere with Heat regular-season games.

The Marlins take their 4-2 road record to Philadelphia tonight on Jackie Robinson Day in the majors.

The weather's not looking good for tomorrow's game, and tonight should be the first really cold evening the Marlins have played in this year.

It's Javier against Roy Oswalt tonight.


Thursday, April 14, 2011


Series Finale

Josh almost got a no-hitter last night; hopefully that inspires the team during tonight's rubber match.

It's Nolasco and Beachy on the mound.

Game Two In Atlanta

The Maniac gives his collection of interesting 'Fish Bites' found this past week. To those I would suggest a new Marlins blog, called "Fish Fry". And also, for an inside look at one of the most fake baseball minds ever, check out the Twitter rumblings of FakeSamson.

Considering how sparse and spread out last night's hits were, Edwin has decided to fiddle with tonight's lineup. The AJC's David O'Brian noticed how small and sparse (and 'Marlins'-like) last night's crowd was, and how Chipper's on the verge of a milestone.

Tonight Josh Johnson and Tim Hudson pitch.


Tuesday, April 12, 2011


Marching Through Georgia

Probably less historic than tonight's 150th anniversary of the start of the War Between The States would be the 3-game series the Marlins begin this evening in Atlanta.

This year the Fish arrive at Turner Field much earlier than last season (the 2010 Marlins didn't play their first game in Atlanta until July 2). Concerning first games at Turner, the Marlins lost last year after winning there three years in a row. The Braves are off to a somewhat slow start, which shouldn't bother them at all.

Fredi, Danny and Omar get to re-mesh with their old teammates. Chris Volstad and Tommy Hanson start. Hanley's back in the line-up tonight.


Monday, April 11, 2011


Very Late Scores

No Marlins game tonight, but plenty of action still going on.


Sunday, April 10, 2011


Sweep in the Heart of Texas?

The Marlins go for their first-ever road sweep of the Astros on Michael Bourn Bobblehead Day in Houston.

Anibal starts for the Fish, J.A. Happ for the 'Stros.


Saturday, April 09, 2011


The Walking Wounded Return

Bruised Hanley's staying out but beat-up Logan and sore Stanton are back in the lineup.

Javier hopes to recover from his last start. Bud Norris pitches for the Astros.


Friday, April 08, 2011


On The Road, On The Web

Edwin's website/blog has been discovered! (This link should lead to the Google English translation.)

The Fish play their first road game of the year tonight in Houston. The Marlins are 5-13 in first road games through their history, although they have won 3 of their last 4. They lost in 2006, the only other year that they had their first road game in Houston.

It's Ricky against Wandy at Orange Juice Stadium.


Thursday, April 07, 2011


Sweep Out The Nats?

Josh makes his second start of the year tonight. So does John Lannan. Johnson has never lost to Washington, and Hanley has good numbers against Lannan.

EXTRA: The Marlins announced their nwxt 8 Super Saturday concerts, Stanton's still sore, and Wes starts tonight.


Wednesday, April 06, 2011


New Blog + New Game

Thanks to the Maniac for discovering a new Marlins blog, called 'Florida Marlins Blog'.

Tonight the Nats will try to drag the Marlins back into the cellar with them. It's Volstad's 2011 debut against "I love you, Wherever!" Livan Hernandez.


Tuesday, April 05, 2011


Second Series Start

The Fish spent their first of this season's 19 scheduled days off yesterday trying to forget what happened on Sunday (click here if you want to remember.)

Confident Anibal will be matched by confident Jason as the Marlins start a series against the Nats tonight in Miami Gardens.

Fox Sports Florida is only showing the game live in South Florida. Stanton's still out of the lineup, but Donnie's back.


Sunday, April 03, 2011


Game Three

It's a 1:10 PM start on Jewish Heritage Day at the stadium, as the Mets and Marlins play the rubber game of their opening series.

On the mound knuckleballer R.A. Dickey will try to prove that last year wasn't a fluke, while for the Marlins Javier Vazquez will try to prove that last year was a fluke.


Saturday, April 02, 2011


Game Two

Zounds! As we all ponder Mr. Stanton's recent predicament, the Florida Marlins will soldier on, challenging the Metropolitans to a contest tonight under the blazing lights of the field of Sun Life.

Mr. Niece and Mr. Nolasco are to fling. A Mr. Pitbull will perform his entertainments afterwards, apparently attempting to bedazzle the throng.


Friday, April 01, 2011


Game Number One

It's the start of the last season of the Florida Marlins. Projected starters are Josh Johnson and Mike Pelfry. Projected give-away is a schedule magnet. Projected guests will be Mike Lowell and Clarence Clemons. Fireworks will be projected afterwards.
