Marlins News

Marlins President David Samson will be looking for a new gig come September, as Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter have informed Commissioner Rob Manfred that Samson will not be retained.

Good news for fans of the home run sculpture, as the county says it’s a commissioned piece of art and thus, can’t be moved.

Sun Sentinel’s Tim Healey tells us in his latest column that potential third baseman of the future Brian Anderson is destroying the competition in AAA while former number one pick Tyler Kolek has been shut down for the year.

The Marlins sale still needs to clear a few more hurdles.

Cameron Baranek, this year’s 9th round pick, was suspended last week for drug violations.

Derek Jeter received high praise from a couple esteemed colleagues.

Giancarlo Stanton is after the (real) home run record.

AROUND THE LEAGUE

Colin Cowherd thinks the Dodgers will break the regular season wins record. This is not sensationalism.

Nolan Arenado is hurt again.

Today’s political climate is reaching into Major League Baseball as the Red Sox consider their own history.
