Statistically, a worse manager than Edwin RodriguezConventional wisdom says that a team brings in a salty old timer coach to right the shaky ship, teach the young whippersnappers a thing or two, and claw its way back to respectability.But the Marlins have actually gotten worse since 80-year-old s ...

We're actually surprised that 80-year-old Marlins manager Jack McKeon made it to the end of the season. After dusting him off in the middle of the year, the Marlins have now been informed, to the surprise of no one, that McKeon will go back into retirement as soon as this painful, painful season ...

"That voice just now-- what was it?"We like the idea that, in his final hours as the Florida Marlins manager, Edwin Rodriguez spent his time comforting relief pitchers who were terrified of ghosts. It'd be fitting for one of the youngest teams in baseball.
Former Marlins skipper Jack McKeon is going to come back to manage the nose-diving team, according to ESPN. McKeon, who helped the Marlins win the 2003 World Series using management skills he learned from observing Noah build his ark, retired in 2005 so he could spend more time turning into a pil ...

Anyone care about the Marlins anymore? Did someone just raise their hand? Oh, the guy in the corner wearing an Ocean Conservancy Group t-shirt.

Arms flailing, hands flapping, ... More >>
All the recent Marlins walk-off wins and ensuing shaving-cream-pie-to-the-face celebrations has claimed its first victim. It was only a matter of time. An MRI has determined that outfielder Chris Coghlan suffered a left knee injury after he planted a shaving-cream pie into the face of Wes Helms a ... More >>
The Washington Nationals did everything to thwart Marlins ace Josh Johnson this past Saturday. They made him throw 30 pitches in the first inning before he could record his first out. They brought in Stephen Strasburg the previous night to throw some rookie-phenom mojo at him. They even trotted ... More >>
From a baseball standpoint, we still can't make sense of the Marlins' unceremonious firing of manager Fredi Gonzalez (dude did the best he could with that salary). From a Jeffrey-Loria-is-an-idiot standpoint, it at least added up. Loria has been keen on the idea of replacing Gonzalez with his bud ... More >>
Even after delivering a 10-4 win against the Baltimore Orioles last night, the Marlins have announced that they've fired manager Fredi Gonzalez and two other coaches: bench coach Carlos Tosca and hitting coach Jim Presley."It is never easy to make a change in managers. Fredi has been with ou ... More >>
Big payoffs. Gruesome murders. Nosy feds. Life as a cargo handler at MIA just ain't what it used to be.
