I still think he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.
Cosart’s troubles started last night with a gambling expert on Twitter alleging he’d direct messaged a colleague asking for betting advice. Cosart later deleted his own account as tweets piled up accusing him of gambling and speculating whether he’d ever bet on baseball, which would be a serious violation of the game’s rules.
Before jumping into the tale, it’s worth noting: The entire firestorm stems from essentially anonymous Tweets from ...
VIERA, Fla.—The Marlins announced on Sunday that outfielder Christian Yelich agreed to a seven-year contract. MLB.com has learned the deal is worth $49.570 million.
The Marlins on Wednesday reached an agreement with left fielder Christian Yelich on a seven-year contract extension worth $49.570 million, a source has told MLB.com.
Did the Dodgers really offer $77 million?
The belief is Olivera is sifting through his options. Miami’s is willing to offer a seven-year package in the $50 million range. There has been speculation that the Dodgers had a $77 million offer on the table, but within Miami’s organization, the belief is that figure is not accurate.
So, Fernandez’s timetable is 13-14 months.
Fernandez was due to throw 24 hours later. But only 30 pitches (no breaking stuff) from a bullpen mound. His surgery was May 16. Marlins general manager Dan Jennings mentioned he has never seen anyone in his 28 years in pro ball attack rehab like Fernandez has, and the blueprint has Fernandez back in the majors sometime from mid-June to mid-July.
Put me in the camp of those who think the Padres won’t compete in the NL West in 2015. They will be better than they were in 2014 but not good enough.
Juan Pierre, who sat out last season after struggling for the Marlins in 2013, has officially decided to retire at age 37.
A delayed goodbye from one of the game’s fastest men.
Who would think I’d be using the word “innovation” to describe the Marlins.
Where’s the manager and coaching staff?
After Bronson, the same exact thing. We had starters in there roping our (clubhouse attendants), like, cattle-roping our clubbies. Guys on their computers, buying stuff, hanging out in the clubhouse. We had a guy with a year-and-a-half in the big leagues wandering around the clubhouse, hanging out. We had a closer in there sleeping until the seventh inning. We lose that veteran leadership, that’s what happens. You can’t have that ... it turns into a ...
The 2017 All-Star Game will be played at Marlins Park.
Officials are expected to announce within the week that Miami has been awarded the Midsummer Classic for the first time, multiple sources with knowledge of the agreement confirmed Tuesday to the Miami Herald.
Marlins and Major League Baseball officials refused to comment.
The awarding of the 2017 event will mark the end of a long and bumpy road to bring the All-Star Game to South Florida.
The Marlins tried — and failed — in their bid ...
Can the Yankees compete with the large market teams?
Due for a better year: Rodriguez? CC Sabathia? Carlos Beltran? Take your old, injured veteran and project better numbers. And then go buy a lottery ticket.
Due for a worse year: Did Miller turn the corner in 2014? After averaging 5.3 walks per nine innings over his career, he lowered that to 2.5 while striking out a dominant 14.9 per nine. The Yankees forked over a lot of money to get the big lefty and now he and Betances could make for ...
Dan Haren is ready to be part of the Marlins’ rotation and ace Jose Fernandez could be back as early as June 15, according to general manager Dan Jennings.
How did the Marlins go from a frequently penny-pinching club that couldn’t find the money to sign future first-ballot Hall of Famer Miguel Cabrera to a team that just paid Giancarlo Stanton $325 million before making a slew of other offseason moves intended to turn Miami into a consistent contender? After 22 tumultuous years for the franchise, why do the Marlins now believe they are financially secure enough to pay their best player a third of a billion dollars and talented enough to compete ...
The Dodgers should be able to keep pace with last year. The Brewers, though, will probably be heading in the other direction.
What is Jeff Bridich thinking?
Dan Haren has informed the Marlins that his preference remains to pitch out West, and for a team that has Spring Training in Arizona. The 34-year-old California native had been weighing his options sinced he was traded to Miami from the Dodgers on Dec. 10.
If Miami cannot work out a trade, it is not clear yet if the 12-year big league veteran will retire.
Haren’s decision does not change the terms of the deal.
The Giants filled their third-base vacancy on Friday night, announcing they obtained Casey McGehee from the Marlins for a pair of Minor League right-handers.
Wait, we’re supposed to be mad at Coonelly here??
We looked at the Giancarlo Stanton mega-contract with suspicious eyes… Well, Pirates president Frank Coonelly spilled the beans to Rob Biertempfel of Trib Live:
“(Coonelly) talked about an exchange he had with Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria and president David Samson during the recent owner’s meetings.
“‘They thought it was a great deal,’ Coonelly said. ‘I just couldn’t get my head around the $325 million. They said to me, ‘You don’t ...
Wonder what they can get for him when they trade him next winter.
Ken Rosenthal reports that the Miami Marlins are close to signing outfielder Mike Morse. Others are reporting that it’s a two-year deal.
Morse spent 2014 with the Giants, hitting .279/.336/.475 with 16 homers and 61 RBI, playing outfield and some first base and helping the Giants to the World Series title. He spent the 2013 season with the Mariners and Orioles.
And Cat Latos, natch.
Marlins pitching prospect Anthony DeSclafani is likely headed to the Reds in the deal, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro tweets. Chad Wallach is also going to Cincinnati, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports on Twitter.
The Friedman train don’t stop y’all.
The Dodgers have acquired second baseman Howie Kendrick from the Angels, MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick reports. According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Halos are getting back southpaw Andrew Heaney, who was just acquired by the Dodgers from the Marlins earlier today.
Kendrick has been a subject of trade rumors for much of the offseason, with teams such as the Orioles, Yankees and Blue Jays all connected to the veteran second baseman at various times. In ...
The Dodgers turn Dee Gordon into Howie Kendrick, reliever Chris Hatcher, catcher/infielder Austin Barnes and utility man Enrique Hernandez.
They made separate trades with the Marlins and Angels, sending second baseman Dee Gordon, starting pitcher Dan Haren, cash considerations and infielder Miguel Rojas to Miami, receiving four young players in return and flipping the key piece, left-handed starter Andrew Heaney, to the Angels for second baseman Howie Kendrick.
One day after the general manager said the Dodgers were not “dangling” All-Star second baseman Dee Gordon, the club traded him and pitcher Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins for starting pitcher Andrew Heaney, reliever Chris Hatcher, catcher/infielder Austin Barnes and utilityman Enrique Hernandez, sources told MLB.com.
Checking in on some future Toronto Blue Jays.
In their effort to keep their better young players, the Marlins also have made long-term offers to outfielder Christian Yelich and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, and they’re due to make an offer early this week to outfielder Marcell Ozuna. Perhaps their chances to extend one or more of those fine players is somewhat better than it is with Fernandez, who thus far hasn’t suggested any inclination to do such a long deal so early in his career.
You know nothing, Crow.
Royals relief pitcher Aaron Crow, a Missouri grad from Topeka who was the team’s first-round draft pick in 2009, was traded to the Marlins for two minor-league pitchers, the club announced on Friday.
Crow, 28, was the 12th overall pick in the 2009 draft. He was the Royals’ All-Star representative in 2011.
He posted a 20-11 record and 3.43 ERA with six saves in 254 games, all out of the bullpen and mostly as a setup man, over four years in Kansas City. He went 6-1 ...
