Summer's Almost Over

Thursday, August 29, 2013

But the Marlins find new ways to keep things interesting.

Exhibit A:

I haven't seen that since a very drunken afternoon of kickball in my old rec league.

Onto Exhibit B:

The theory is that someone in the stands called off LoMo as if they were another player on the field. If that is the case then we tip our hats to the Nats fan who pulled it off.


One More Jose gif for the Road...

Monday, August 26, 2013

Too perfect:


All Jose All the Time

Love watching Jose Fernandez pitch, but wish you didn't have to wait at least 4 days between his starts? Now you can watch these gifs nonstop while you wait for the next Cuban Jesus start (h/t Fangraphs).


Giancarlo's Got Rhythm

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Giancarlo's got rhythm
Giancarlo's got music
Giancarlo's got #Monsterdongs
Who could ask for anything more? 

Ask and ye shall receive...


All Jose Fernandez Everything

Monday, August 5, 2013

If you didn't watch Friday's game, you missed some dominance from Jose Fernandez:

During the 8-inning, 14-K shutout performance, Ted tweeted, "Our Fernandez-boner is approaching Stantonian levels." That begs the question: if Giancarlo is Sr. #Monsterdong, what shall we call Jose Fernandez? If the Internet cannot find a good solution, I'm not sure what I can believe in anymore.


Trade Deadline Snoozefest

Thursday, August 1, 2013

Yesterday's trade deadline was one giant wet fart. The Marlins did absolutely nothing, though they apparently came close to trading Placido Polanco to the Yankees.

On the plus side, Jeffrey Loria declined to accept a ginormous offer for Giancarlo Stanton from the Pirates (unless he didn't). Either he wasn't willing to repeat the mistake of trading Miguel Cabrera, didn't want another massive fan backlash, or both, but we'll take it.

This brings us to the Trade Pool. With only Ricky Nolasco being dealt this year, everyone who entered the pool is in a tie for first place (since anyone with sense could see that move coming from a mile away). So here is what we will do. Instead of buying all of you a beer, we are extending the trade pool through the August 31 waiver deadline (for a good explanation of the mechanics of waiver wire deals, go here).

This is just a hunch, but the Marlins will place a bunch of their veterans on waivers in August (as just about every team does to test the waters), and we're betting some team will bite and try to work out a deal for Polanco, Juan Pierre, or one of Miami's relievers. So stay tuned...
