Every Friday during the 2018 Marlins season, we will use this series to feature Fish Stripes original GIFs created that week. A variety of game highlights and silliness for our loyal readers to share or save for posterity.
From here, you can download them to your own device. On a phone/tablet, tap the image once to separate it from the article, then hold it down to save. On desktop, click the image once to separate, then right-click to save.
Keep in mind, MLB Advanced Media has their own “GIF & Embeddable Video Hub” that you can explore by searching for “Marlins” or any individual players. Our Fish Stripes GIFs capture moments that are not included in MLB’s hub.
When you’re in the middle of a game but hear that Mister Softee music and need to be first in line
Over-aggressive move by Starlin Castro, trying to take second base against a scrambled Brewers defense.
Pouring a photobomb into an open wound
The relatively hot start that Junichi Tazawa had to the season apparently didn’t board the plane with him for this recent road trip.
Sweet as Merandy
Mixed results for Merandy González in his first taste of the big leagues (6.0 IP, 4 ER, 2.00 WHIP). He’s only 22 years old and his stuff is already legit.
“Why couldn’t I just tell her how I really feel? Now she’ll probably go to prom with that idiot Kyle.”
JB Shuck recorded four hits in his Marlins debut, but has only five others since then.
Last guy must have left a banana peel in the batter’s box
Justin Bour’s “strong lower half” didn’t look so strong on that swing. He is tied for the Marlins team lead with four home runs.
Bae: “Come over, my parents aren’t home”
After posting 26.7 ft/sec in Statcast’s Sprint Speed last season, Brian Anderson is now slightly better than league average (27.2 ft/sec).
Shortly after crushing a three-run home run against former teammate Clayton Kershaw, Miguel Rojas seemed unusually bothered. Overall, he’s done a very respectable job as the Marlins everyday shortstop.
