  • Nathan Eovaldi struggled from the get-go, allowing six runs -five of them earned- in 5 1/3 frames: 0 points.
  • Mike Dunn wins his team-best 8th game of the year after hurling a scoreless 9th inning : 100 points.
  • The Marlins pull an ace from their sleeves, score four runs in the 9th, make Rafael Soriano (L, 2-1) blow the save and beat Washington 7-6 after trailing 6-0: Priceless. Absolutely priceless.

There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s MasterCard. This comeback was totally thrilling, only second to the biggest in Marlins history: a 14-7 win against Arizona on July 10, 2009 after trailing 7-0.

  • Henderson Álvarez runs his scoreless streak to 26 innings but leaves the game with a hip injury after a terrible throw by Garrett Jones in the 6th: 0 points.
  • Jones atones for his error and ties the game with a sacrifice fly in the 8th; the Marlins score another run on a wild pitch moments later: 200 points.
  • The Sun Sox pull a 4-3 win in grand fashion and ruin the Cubbies’ bid for a perfect homestand: priceless.

There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s MasterCard (TM). And those old-time uniforms are just perfect! Maybe, like my tweep Marques McCoy said, they should be made our permanent kits.

Youth Trumps Experience

There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s Mastercard (TM). The Feesh took 2 out of 3 against the Museum Exhibits and are now 19-6 at home, as well as getting their 25th win of 2014.

  • Christian Yelich puts a tremendous game at the plate, reaching base five times: 200 points.
  • Jarrod Saltalamacchia hits his first HR as a Marlin, a game-tying shot in the 7th: 100 points.
  • Carlos Mármol comes in, intentionally walks Anthony Rendón to load the bases in the 8th and then gives a go-ahead Grand Slam to Jayson Werth: Priceless. Freaking priceless.

There are a lot of things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s FailCard.  And this one’s on you, Michael Hill; signing this guy was your idea.

Project First Tweet


Twitter celebrated its 8th anniversary yesterday. And the team in charge unveiled an interesting and powerful tool called “First Tweet“. Using it is easy as pie: just type any @username and it’ll pull the first tweet submitted from that account.

So I had this little idea: how about seeing what some Marlins players/prospects posted after taking their baby steps on this social network? Here are the results, curated from my very own list about the Feesh.
