It is time for THE SUNDAY REQUEST

 

The Marlins are indeed a fascinating mess. And the problem may start from the top.

Part of me thinks MLB should step in.

But like a slow motion car wreck, part of me does not want them to change a thing because I am fascinated by it.

I am taking my talents to South Beach for episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Miami Marlins 2014 Preview Part 2: The Pitchers

By Nicholas Rossoletti (Lead Baseball Columnist):

Follow MLB Reports On Twitter

Earlier in the month, we touched on the Miami Marlins and their offense going into the 2014 season here

The Miami offense has talent, but I believe it will be a frustrating lineup to follow due in large part to the team’s tendency to strike out a lot.  The pitching staff has the potential to also be a frustrating unit to follow during the season. 

While there is an elite player at the top of this rotation, the body of the staff lacks another stopper or really anyone to put any real faith in as a legit No. 2 or 3 starter at this point. Read the rest of this entry

Miami Marlins Payroll In 2013 And Contracts Going Forward

Like us on Facebook here

Monday, February.18/2013

The Marlins will start year 2 of their ball park with about 33 % of their 2012 Team Salary.  They essentially have traded away veteran over the course of last season and then in the winter.

The Marlins will start year 2 of their ball park with about 33% of their 2012 Team Salary. They essentially have traded away every veteran over the course of last season and then in the winter.  They go to camp with a lot of prospects, some re-treads and a lot of broken promises to their fans.

By Nicholas Rossoletti (MLB Reports Trade Correspondent):

Welcome to Miami, home to sunshine, beautiful people and a unique multicultural atmosphere. Miami is not home, however, to a big market baseball team. For years the Marlins have attempted to fake it to make it. The team would build its payroll towards a single season where the front office felt like it could compete for a world championship. Then, regardless of result, the Marlins would break up the team, sell the pieces for as much value as was offered and rebuild towards another season when a championship hope seemed realistic. So the Miami Marlins, their fans, their brand new stadium enter 2013 in a very similar situation. In 2012, the team took a shot at competing by spending money on several free agents. I’ve written in detail about why that didn’t work and what the fans can look forward to in the future. In 2013, the payroll will be once again be amongst the lowest in baseball.

As with our past looks at payroll we will start with the high-end of the Miami payroll. You will notice that one of these is not like the other.
