The Marlins’ AAA affiliate formerly known as the New Orleans Babycakes is relocating to Wichita this offseason and revealed Wednesday evening that it will be known as the “Wind Surge”. Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net spoke with the designer about the creative process behind the name.

Rumors abound in free agency
Free agency is well underway, and most baseball talk is centered around possible transactions, including both signings or trades. Check out our series Deep Sea Fishing wherein we take our best guesses at who is a good fit to help the Marlins take the next step in the rebuild.
We’ve recently discussed Marcell Ozuna, Avisail Garcia, and perhaps most notably, Broward Country native Nicholas Castellanos. Links to each player covered in the series can be at the bottom of each article.
Nicholas Castellanos had one of the best bats in the majors down the stretch in 2019...but how will he age the next 4-6 years? The Broward county kid is a Marlins free agent target, an immediate offensive upgrade with a questionable fit defensively. https://t.co/GnVZya4aFi— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) November 13, 2019
MLB Trade Rumors also gave their take on the possibility of a deal with Castellanos. Another big potential move that has been mentioned is a trade for the Diamondbacks’ David Peralta.
Our latest Fish Bites podcast discusses other possible moves as well as the past decade of Marlins baseball.
