Miami Marlins' Christian Yelich drawing attention

+

Scouts are raving about Christian Yelich, who is hitting .323 since the All-Star break and ranks fourth among all qualifying MLB left fielders in average (.288). He has become so popular among Marlins fans that not only is he getting dozens of letters a week, but a couple people drew and sent him portraits of himself.

Rany Jazayerli on the Marlins' Jacob Turner move

1

Four months ago, the Marlins could have gotten a huge haul of talent for Turner, yet they cut him even though he was pitching better than ever. Turner’s FIP this year is the best of his career. His average fastball velocity (92.6 mph) is the highest of his career. Releasing him defies explanation. If you were to put together a list of the pitchers most likely to be the Arrieta of 2015, Turner might rank at the very top. I’m sure the Marlins had their reasons for getting rid of him, but then I’m sure they had their reasons for getting rid of Millar 11 years ago.

"I never had an argument with Jeffrey. We will. I expect that because that's part of the game," said Guillen. "I'm not afraid of Jeffrey. I'm not afraid of anyone." Loria said he isn't worried about Guillen ruffling his feathers. "I could care less about feathers. I don't have any feathers and I don't care about him ruffling anybody," Loria said. "Ozzie has his opinions and he is entitled to them. Ozzie comes with a great pedigree."

"Basically what Jeffrey has instructed all of us is that no stone will be left unturned in order to make this year a memory and make next year unforgettable," Samson said. "He said, 'I want people to forget about '11, forget about Sun Life Stadium, forget about the Florida Marlins, and I want the Miami Marlins have their franchise start by making history.' "
