2022 MLB Draft Profile: Cam Collier

2022 MLB Draft Profile: Cam Collier

@camcollierrrrr/Instagram Should the Marlins select Collier if he’s available with their first-round draft pick? Cam Collier is a 6’2”, 210-pound third base prospect who plays at Chipola Junior College. Collier is one of the more intriguing prospects in this draft class as he “pulled a Bryce Harper”—he accelerated his high school education and received his GED early to go play junior college baseball as a 17-year-old. Collier only played one season at the JUCO level but was a highly productive hitter for Chipola’s offense. The freshman slashed...

MIA 3, WSH 2: Fish escape with Fourth win in DC

MIA 3, WSH 2: Fish escape with Fourth win in DC

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ The Marlins were led to victory on Monday by a couple of their youngest players. My 2022 Marlins skepticism has been largely fueled by a combination of the team’s June/July schedule and key injuries. I feared situations like Monday, in the middle of a stretch of 30 games in 31 days, when Don Mattingly would simultaneously rest several important veteran bats and not have competent fill-ins to use. Mattingly’s getaway day lineup was as pathetic as expected...and the Marlins won anyway. Braxton Garrett’s remarkable outing and Bryan De La...

Photo by Randy Litzinger/Icon Sportswire via Braxton Garrett and Patrick Corbin will start Monday’s Marlins vs. Nationals game at Nationals Park. Full lineups and game notes in here. Welcome to our Fourth of July Marlins (37-40, +13 RD) vs. Nationals (29-52, -117 RD) game thread. A win today would give the Fish a rare four-game road series sweep. Their COVID-ravaged roster swept the Orioles at Camden Yards in August 2020, but they batted last in two of those games (plus it included seven-inning doubleheader games). If you don’t want to count that, the most recent...

Marlins Game Coverage Marlins Podcast Episodes Sunday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 7-2; Double-A Pensacola lost, 4-1; High-A Beloit won, 9-3; Low-A Jupiter lost, 8-2. Max Meyer was marvelous over six scoreless innings. I think it’s time to call him up. The Blue Wahoos fell short despite sporting extremely clever uniforms, if I do say so myself. Mets ace Jacob deGrom (stress reaction in his right scapula) made...

Marliniversary: Sanchez’s tying blast, Ramírez’s winning hit lift Marlins past Brewers

Marliniversary: Sanchez’s tying blast, Ramírez’s winning hit lift Marlins past Brewers

Photo by Mike McGinnis/ A Marlins memory from this day in 2012. The Fourth of July is a day where most Americans enjoy time with friends, family and watch fireworks. Historically, the day has not always been kind to the Florida/Miami Marlins. In 1993, Matt Turner infamously balked in the winning run in a loss to the Atlanta Braves. In 2008, the Marlins squandered a nine-run lead at Coors Field in an 18-17 loss to the Colorado Rockies. In 2016, the Marlins let a six-run lead fall by the wayside in an 8-6 loss to the New York Mets. On this day 10 years ago however, the...

Max Meyer is ready

Max Meyer is ready

It’s time. The Marlins still have a pulse in the National League Wild Card race. They enter play on Monday only three games back in the loss column of the Cardinals and Giants and two behind the Phillies. Naturally, there are fans clamoring for them to add talent from outside the organization that addresses the team’s deficiencies. However, it’s difficult to get sellers to budge this far in advance of the trade deadline. That does not mean the Fish should sit on their hands and hope their flawed roster overachieves enough in the coming weeks to stay afloat. It’s time to...

MIA 7, WAS 4: Wild & Wacky Win.

MIA 7, WAS 4: Wild & Wacky Win.

Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports López carries no-no into the 7th, bats surge for late win in extras. Since winning NL Pitcher of the Month honors in April, Pablo López, while not bad - the right-hander posted a 3.92 ERA (4.15 FIP) in 11 starts in May/June - his stock went from possible NL All-Starter to questioning whether he even deserved a selection at all. For the first 6 innings in Sunday’s 7-4 victory over the Nationals, though, shades of April-Pablo rang through. Working around a hit-by-pitch, 3 walks and 3 consecutive inning-ending double plays, López kept...

Marlin of the Month: June 2022

Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports Alcántara moved to the top of the NL Cy Young race, but teammates Cooper, Chisholm, and Bass were also great for the Marlins. It’s your call! After an awful showing in May with a 7-19 record, the Marlins figured things out to play much better baseball in June, going with a 15-13 record. Their month featured a four-game series split against the Giants, a sweep against the Nationals, a series win at Houston, and another sweep against the Rockies. As usual, we have chosen four names who performed the best for the Marlins over the past month...
