Marlins Baseball – Helping Other Teams Get Better Since 1998 Newsbeat

Former Yankees star Jorge Posada is joining the Marlins. This is what he will be doing

The player who made the final out for the New York Yankees when they lost to the Marlins in the 2003 World Series is switching sides.

Former Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has been hired as a special advisor to baseball operations for the Marlins, a source confirmed.

Posada, who spent his entire 17-year major league career with the Yankees, is a friend and former teammate of Marlins chief executive officer Derek Jeter.

Arnold Johnson wasn’t this shameless when he was in the tank for the Yankees!

Derek Jeter on Marlins low win projection: ‘I would take it as a slap in the face’

The 2019 Miami Marlins aren’t projected to win many games. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, especially after the team traded catcher J.T. Realmuto to the Philadelphia Phillies last week.

Because of that, FanGraphs projects the Marlins to win just 65 games in 2019. When asked about that low win total, Jeter didn’t get angry or try to refute that number. He instead tried to use it as a motivational tactic for his current players.

Jeter said he would take that projection as a “slap in the face if I was a player.” He then added that players should always look to prove people wrong.

For those of you who’ve wanted to see a man with absolutely no sense of shame, look no further.

‘Give us a chance’: Marlins make plea to fans entering 2019

MIAMI — The outfield grass at Marlins Park was a worn-out mess on Saturday, with those who arrived for the team’s annual FanFest being greeted by signs reminding them that the turf will be replaced soon.

When it comes to the Marlins, many things are a work in progress.

Wearing new uniforms with the rebranded team logo, in a stadium that has gotten spruced-up since last season ended, some of the 2019 Miami Marlins gathered for the first time to greet fans and start hyping the new season. Pitchers and catchers report to the team’s spring training home in Jupiter on Wednesday.

All three of the Marlins’ remaining fans are sorry that they have reached this state.

Everyone Thank The Marlins For Making The NL Playoff Race Fun

Things are getting hot in the National League in the final days of the season. After last night’s results, here’s how things stand: The Brewers lead the wild-card race and are a half-game back of the Cubs in the central division; the Rockies are a half-game back of the Dodgers out west and now hold a half-game lead over the Cardinals for the second wild-card spot. If you’re enjoying this, thank Derek Jeter.
