Marlins Park fences will be altered for 2016 season

MIAMI -- While the Miami Marlins boast one of the top power hitters in the game, the home run sculpture has stayed relatively untouched since Marlins Park opened in 2012. Over four seasons spanning 324 games, the Marlins have blasted 203 home runs -- finishing in the lower-third of the pack each year. In total, 412 homers have been hit -- the second-lowest total in baseball -- ahead...

Good news for sluggers: Lower wall at Marlins Park in 2016

MIAMI (AP) The Miami Marlins have decided to alter their outfield wall and give hitters a better chance to homer in the spacious ballpark. The Marlins still want a park that favors pitchers, team president David Samson said Tuesday. But the wall will be lowered and perhaps moved closer to home plate for the 2016 season. In the four years since Marlins Park opened, only 412 homers...

Dan Jennings will not return as Marlins manager

Some experiments just don’t work. New Coke, Herman Cain’s presidential campaign, David Hasselhoff’s music career, Magic Johnson as a talk show host.

A brief history of Ichiro wanting to pitch

The final day of the regular season saw the fulfillment of what was, for Ichiro, a career-long dream — he got to pitch in a game in the major leagues. Which is something that made Ichiro happy, and it made all the other players happy, and it made all the fans happy, and here we all are, delighted to no end that Ichiro got to stand on the rubber. Think about it hard enough and maybe...

Reports: Red Sox could've had Stanton for Bogaerts

Don’t look now, Boston Red Sox fans, but it turns out your dream could have been a reality. The Red Sox reportedly could have traded for Miami Marlins star right fielder Giancarlo Stanton a couple of years ago, ESPN Boston’s Gordon Edes reported, but there was one catch: They’d have to give up shortstop Xander Bogaerts. The Marlins had a similar request for the Baltimore...

With little time left, Giancarlo Stanton's return remains in doubt

MIAMI -- With a week remaining, it looks unlikely Miami Marlins All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton will return before next Sunday's season finale in Philadelphia. "It would be pretty tough," manager Dan Jennings said. "It's the big leagues, and these guys are trying to finish off on a positive note as well, so it'd be difficult to get there, but again -- we have left it in his court...

Max Scherzer yells at Matt Williams, refuses to leave game

Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer preferred not to be taken out of Friday night’s game against the Miami Marlins. So he politely asked manager Matt Williams to leave him in, and Williams respectfully obliged. OK, not really. Scherzer already was over the 100-pitch mark and had a runner on second base when Williams came out for a mound visit in the seventh inning. Yet...

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Miami Marlins

Playoffs? Playoffs? For the Miami Marlins? Such a prediction wasn’t outlandish for those who made it. The team was coming off a 77-win season with one of the most promising young cores in MLB. With veterans like Martin Prado, along with what appeared to be savvy offseason acquisitions in Mike Morse, Ichiro Suzuki and Mat Latos, the Marlins appeared to be a club that could...

Q&A: Justin Bour, Marlins Slugger

Justin Bour is a big man who hits bombs. The 27-year-old Miami Marlins rookie is 6-foot-4, 250 pounds — and this season, 10 of his 14 home runs have gone at least 400 feet. On Saturday, he clubbed a 453 foot shot against Jordan Zimmermann at Nationals Park. The lefty swinger has power to all fields. Seven of his Bour’s blasts have been to the pull side, while six have been from...
