The 2012 Florida Marlins: Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb


Before this offseason, I was all but set to abandon my beloved Florida Marlins (from now on referred to as The Fish.) Another season of inexplicable mediocrity, untimely injuries, and WTF managing (I love me some Jack McKeon, but WTF) mixed with the complete identity change to the fabulously flamboyant Miami Marlins was more than enough to send me to the curb. Add in the fact that I am generally disintrested in baseball (NEEDS MOAR STEROIDS) and things were looking bleak for the following season, and I was all but ready to hand in my sabbatical papers. Then, almost over night, the Fish had me hooked.

The Daily Drive 6/21/2011


The Daily Drive is a daily ( for the most part) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you.  For example:Japan has come up with a steak made out of feces that is completely edible.  I only wish I was kidding.

The Phillies open up a series against the St. Louis Cardinals tonight.  No truth to the rumor that the St. Lunatics will be performing take me out to the ballgame in the 7th inning stretch.

Jack Mckeon didnt take long to start cracking the Fish into shape.  He benched Hanley Ramirez in his first game back as manager.  Presumably it had something to do with Hanley not giving a flying fuck about baseball this season

The Daily Drive – 6/16/2011


The Daily Drive is a daily (almost) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. Relax baby, daddy’s back.

-The Florida Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies played baseball this past week. I didn’t notice.

-New York Yankees journeyman Brian Gordon took the mound today against the Texas Rangers. That game is currently in the 11th inning tied 2 all. If you think I’m going to come back and edit this out and put the result, you expect way to much of me. **Yanks win 3-2 in the 12th on Brett Gardner’s RBI single.  Don’t worry DP, that’s what Papa’s here for. **

-Aw Phillie fans don’t love Ryan Howard.

-Those damn New York Yankees are stealing signs now, according to, if I’m pronouncing this correctly, Yorvit Torreable. The Texas Ranger’s catcher then said that he would be taking his glove and going home, and that he would not be sharing the juice boxes his mom brought with anyone, especially Andruw Jones.

Winning? What’s that?


Fortnight – –noun

the space of fourteen nights and days; two weeks.
 I’m pretty sure I found out what the word fortnight meant some time in college. I want to say my junior year, and I really feel like a video game was involved. Needless to say it’s a word a lot of Florida Marlins players should be familiar with. After last nights shellacking, it has been 2 weeks since the Florida Marlins were playing competitive baseball. They’ve won 2 games since two Tuesday’s ago, and the losses have been extravagant.
Miguel Montero hit three doubles and drove in four runs, and pitcher Zach Duke hit a two-run homer for the Diamondbacks, who have won four of five.Juan Miranda had three RBIs and Justin Upton knocked in a pair.
“It was nice to see us swing the bats,” Upton said. “This was a good series for us.” (via ESPN)
Never mind the fact that the team came back late and made the game interesting. A loss is a loss is a fucking loss to the god damn Arizona D-Backs. It’s been an interesting two weeks for the Fish, and there are clearly a few glaring reasons why they’ve fallen out of Wild Card contention (I’ve already conceded the East to the Phillies.)

Marlins Preview – 5/10/2011


I’m not going to lie, this is easily the biggest series right now probably ever in the world for the Florida Marlins. If they don’t take 2 out of 3 from the Phillies, well, you can pretty much dial the season over. Only 3 back of the Phils, with a win tonight and tomorrow the Fish will position themselves not only a game behind the NL East leaders, but also comfortably in sole possession of the wild card.Since it’s May, I don’t need to explain to you the severity of this series. Divisions are won and lost in May. Just ask the New York Mets.
