No. 9 Marlins: 22nd in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Braves.
New name. New stadium. New manager. Four new players, all of whom have been to at least three All-Star Games.
There is no shortage of topics to consider when looking at...

Bryce Harper isn't looking to get a little more experience and then go back to the Eastern League. He's coming to spring training planning to leave Florida on the Nationals' flight to Chicago, where they will open the season.
And in Harper's mind, and...

No one is expecting the Miami Marlins to break everything down and try to rebuild again slowly, as they did in 2006.

Did Ozzie Guillen accidentally take Juan Pierre, Gordon Beckham, Mark Teahen, Brian Anderson and Josh Fields with him when he went to Florida? It must seem like it at times.
The Marlins aren't scoring runs. If that trend continues, they won't join the...

Yes, two bar blogs in two days.
It’s Christmastime, I’m feeling the holiday spirit (or holiday spirits, as it were).
I wrote a piece last week talking to a scout who briefly broke down the Orioles and the AL East for me.

Now that the emotion of the moment has passed, and the initial heat of the news has cooled, it's time to take a second look at the Marlins' payroll-dumping trade with Toronto.
And you know what?
On second look, it still stinks.

I wasn’t expecting any assurances. I didn’t think President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest would guarantee that Giancarlo Stanton would be a life-long Marlin. At a minimum, I was banking on the “some players are less likely to...
