From the “Aw, hell yeah!” Department:
NEWS: Fish Stripes has learned that the TEAL throwback uniforms worn by the @Marlins during their 25th Anniversary Weekend are coming back next season (just take my money now) https://t.co/vGcSuYjIk2 pic.twitter.com/qjtyEmxZhh— Ely Sussman (@RealEly) September 19, 2018
The teal uniforms everybody wanted are back! They will be the chosen throwbacks used during the July 26-29 series with the Diamondbacks in 2019.
Not to be confused with “eugoogaly”
Looking forward to 2019 is what Fish fans have been doing since, well, all year. But there were still some good moments this season which Fangraphs discussed in their elegy for the Marlins’ 2018. The outlook still isn’t brilliant, however.
Insult to injury
Not only will the Marlins possibly have traded two MVP’s in the past year (if Christian Yelich wins this year’s award), it’s also possible that Yelich, Giancarlo Stanton, and Marcell Ozuna all are going to make the playoffs with their new teams. But I guess it makes sense that trading a good young core to other teams would make them better, right? Plus, those clubs were already pretty good anyway.
Now, to get those sour tastes out of our mouths, and since we don’t have any game highlights due to yesterday’s off-day, here’s some fun ones of Ichiro’s 2016 season with Miami that I found while searching Twitter for more recent Marlins news.

But what’s Victor Victor’s vector?
Kids, if the Marlins sign Cuban phenom Victor Victor Mesa, you’re going to need to get used to these kinds of references. I am letting you know now because, judging by Marlins beat writer Joe Frisaro’s latest mailbag, that could very well be a reality in the near future.
With Cuban outfielders Victor Victor Mesa & Victor Mesa Jr. being declared free agents, here are the #MLB teams with the most remaining international bonus pool money:#Orioles $6,738,500#Marlins $4,319,500#Rays $3,621,500#Dodgers $2,777,600— MLB Pipeline (@MLBPipeline) September 14, 2018

Ladies and Gentlemen, your Fish Farmhands of the year:
#Marlins prospects Nick Neidert (No. 3) and Austin Dean (No. 27) have been named the @Marlins Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Year: https://t.co/TYKdvFG2Bu pic.twitter.com/cZeRxt3ZEM— MLB Pipeline (@MLBPipeline) September 20, 2018
I don’t think this needs any further explanation, does it? Congrats to both Nick Neidert and Austin Dean. Maybe the future is brighter than Fangraphs thinks!
As mentioned yesterday, the Reds are in town, and it’s the battle of the 0-2 pitchers. Jeff Brigham takes the hill against Cincinnati’s Cody Reed at 7:10 p.m.
It’ll be a high-stakes entanglement, too:
White Sox and Marlins dead even in the tankathon standings. Both 59-92 with 11 games remaining.— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) September 20, 2018
