This Marlins start to their season is much like the Sox start to last year...can't help but think of Pierre's drops in big time situations last year watching Morrison drop that ball.

That's the second time Heath Bell has blown a Zambrano start. He better watch his back in the dugout.

Morrison's offense and awesome twitter account do not make up for how horrendous he is on defense.

Marlins blow another lead, this time a 4-1 margin, behind Heath Bell and 3 errors in one inning. Astros, the worst team in baseball....end up winning 5-4 in Miami.

Things will not be so rosy for Ozzie when he returns on Tuesday.


After Bell logged a quick out, Jose Altuve doubled to right-center and ended up at third on Emilio Bonifacio's bobble. Travis Buck delivered an RBI single and Jordan Schafer reached on catcher's interference. With two outs, J.D. Martinez delivered an RBI single and Carlos Lee tied it with a single to right.

Randy Choate relieved Bell, and induced a fly ball to left by Brian Bogusevic. With the wind swirling, Logan Morrison tried to cradle the ball, but it dropped for an error, giving Houston the improbable lead.



Loved the comments in the story thread, especially the one about signing Juan Pierre to be a defensive replacement, lol.


What the f uck were these guys doing during spring training: everybody is totally off: hitters and pitchers with some exceptions. What was Mr. St Claire doing? Mr. Perez? That fu cking ugly thing in the CF never will work if these guys don't take the swings they MUST take, Mr. Perez. Who is going to teach Mr. Stanton to hit breaking balls? Mr. St. Claire: how come Mr. Bell is throwing only 91-92 mph, how come Mr. Zambrano walks 6 and says in an interview that walks don't matter.
What the f uck is this: a baseball team or a circus?

I mentioned it before,my friends; No team can have injured players as outfield players. LoMo is arguably the worst outfielder in this team when healthy; playing injured is a joke. This is totally on the management. The team is winning by 3 runs in the 8th, take the idiot out of the game. Move Coghlan to LF and bring Kearns to RF. Coaches are paid to do the obvious moves but still manage to screw things up.

This is why we should have signed Pierre for utility outfield.

Very good article by Rick Morrissey on Guillen.

http://www.suntimes.com/sports/11852551-41...a-surprise.html


Didn't know he has a Guillen book coming out soon, perfect timing for that one.

Also didn't realize Ozzie claimed he was drunk/hung over when he interviewed with KW twice in late 2003.

Funny that Morrissey is doing interviews with Russian radio stations, but the story was so huge last week...and will pick up again Monday/Tuesday when Guillen returns to managing again.

I agree. Previous examples (John Rocker) support this statement.

Now change it from simply a vile statement to it being an expression of political feeling. Doesn't that make it much, much harder?


Balta, if a minimum wage front counter person at McDonalds was chasing away customers by making pro-Castro comments, wouldn't the store fire him? Should a manager or player be afforded more protection for their speech?

Ha, those end of article comments are awesome, its like reading a Soxtalk gamethread last season(with the exception of wanting Pierre as a defensive replacement)


I had no idea LoMo was a bad defensive player. I thought he was supposed to be the total package

My parents watched Guillen get turned into a piŮata last week, an uneducated man groveling after wading into political waters over his head, and it brought back bad memories of punishment for speech, so they didnít want him fired, either, even as it got them called communists by loud and angry neighbors. I canít help but wonder, strong as my conviction can be sometimes, if my opinion might be different, or dissolved completely into intolerance, if I had come to find my mother in tears over what Guillen had said.

But context matters here. It always should, no matter how high the flames have climbed. Guillen didnít take sides with Castroís policies or tyranny. He marveled at Castroís ability to stay alive while surrounded by people who wanted him dead. He did this in his second language and even changed ďI love CastroĒ to ďI respect Castro,Ē a rare self-filtering for him, though that seemed to get lost in the subsequent hysteria.

The Marlins, very white at the top, canít dare explain the nuance of this because everything around them is so volatile and, besides, whatís the point? But marveling at the old dictator still being alive isnít nearly the same as being pro-Castro. This was a bombastic, flippant man who has always been rewarded for being bombastic and flippant saying something bombastic and flippant. And heís allowed to marvel at Castroís longevity, as many people do, in every city but the one that built his team a stadium because, well, the logical truth in what heís saying gets engulfed by this emotional one:

It is so very crushing for his customers to remind them that Castro has outlived the parents and grandparents who fled him.

This Marlins Park is just a terrible ballpark. It's a joke how deep it is.

Somebody just hit a HR for the Marlins. That statue went off but doesn't seem showy enough to me. Needs to have lights or something. Not sure if it makes noise, hope that it does.

I love big parks. I think it adds a little more strategy to the game rather than relying on big thumpers.

(the walls will be brought in by the start of the 2014 or 2015 season.
