The Miami Marlins won their season Opener against the Colorado Rockies 10-1 and pitching phenom, Jose Fernandez, threw 94 pitches and an amazing 73 for strikes, but that wasn’t why the Marlins Opening Day was a disaster. Owner Jeffrey Loria’s pride and joy, Marlins Park as well as their staff were unprepared to handle Opening Day. Opening Day left a bitter taste in a lot of fan’s mouth including my own.

According to an article in the Sun-sentinel by Juan C. Rodriguez, the Marlins feel cheated because the Red-Sox did not show up with enough Major League talent to a spring training game. A spring training game that the Marlins jacked the prices up on because it was the Red-Sox. Let’s marinate on the fact that the Marlins felt cheated another team did not field a major league roster. Dear Marlins, now you know how your fans, or what’s left of them, feel. Read the rest of this entry »
Show of hands, who is ready for another season of Marlins baseball? Ok, don’t everyone throw their hands up at once. I’ll be honest I forgot all about the Marlins because they’re buried behind the Florida Panthers on the sports section of the paper because the Heat and the Dolphins are getting all the headlines. I didn’t even realize the Marlins were playing spring training games. I’m excited for Marlins baseball can’t you tell? Read the rest of this entry »
Do you know what the biggest surprise in Miami sports was in June and it wasn’t the Miami Heat repeating as champions? It was the Miami Marlins having the one of the best records for the month of June in baseball. You read that right, the Marlins were actually winning. I’m sure most people except close friends, if he has any, and family of Jeffrey Loria forgot the Marlins were still playing here in Miami. Mimes have been making more noise than the Marlins have been but things are slowly, starting to turn around, but lets not get ahead of ourselves its Loria we’re talking about. The most volatile, loathed and hated owner in Miami sports history. Read the rest of this entry »
We need a petition to get started. Jeffrey Loria needs a Twitter account. What better way to interact with the handful of fans the team has left going to the good old ballpark to watch the Marlins play? Read the rest of this entry »
The day has finally come, Opening Day for the Marlins at Marlins Park. I know you’re all super excited. For weeks now your joy has been so overwhelming that the Miami Marlins had to enlist the help of GroupOn, again, to get those ticket sales roaring. The feedback has been so positive that Marlins thief, I mean owner, Jeffrey Loria has been patting himself on his back for bringing the fans back with his offseason message of “Get over it” or basically saying he’ll get his money either way so kiss his art dealing ass.

These videos are becoming the standard for when people have made it. Someone in this video studio deep in the heart of Taiwan has made a mockery of everything from the General Petraeus situation, to the Lakers coaching change, to President Obama’s election win.
Here’s the latest installment video, this one about the Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jay trade situation.
Oh how the good times that the Miami Marlins promised South Florida have went down the drain.
After a nice sized spending spree in the summer, a controversial statement by their manager to start off the season, a great month followed by a few horrible months..Showtime has decided that they’ve had enough.
“There was an option to do more but given the state of our season, it was decided that the original 8 would suffice.”
And with those words sent in via text by club president David Samson, the Marlins “season” on the cable show giving people on all access look at the team is over.
Maybe if the team hadn’t shipped off a few of their bigger contract players to save some money, Showtime would have just grinded it out for one more week. But enough was enough.
Personally I never watched because a.) I don’t have showtime and b.) the Marlins don’t interest me enough to make me add it to my cable package.
You figured it was only a matter of time. The on again, off again love triangle with Hanley Ramirez, the fans and the Marlins management has been ice cold for awhile, kind of like the way he’s been playing.
The LA Times reported that HR (and that doesn’t stand for home runs) is headed west.
The Dodgers made one of the most significant and stunning trades in the history of their franchise late Tuesday, acquiring three-time All-Star Hanley Ramirez from the Miami Marlins, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been formally announced.
There’s nothing I hate to see more than wasted talent and potential. And for whatever reason(s), after have a stellar rookie year and winning the batting title in 2009, Hanley just hasn’t been the same. Too many run ins with managers. Inconsistent play. Immaturity.
Maybe a change in scenery is what he needed.
