Tune in, and find out!

Everyone's favorite Cuban Jose Fernandez is going up against a guy simply known as A. Wood.

Burning Questions:

Will Dietrich Play?

Will the Marlins continue to be baffled by the concept of platooning?

Will Redmond wait to use Cishek until the 18th inning?

How come no one talks about the Braves pitiful attendance?

Why is Casey McGehee's name pronounced like McGee and not like Mc-Ghey-Hee (ala Willis)?

Find out all this and more, Tonight!

» Use of the Orange Cap at Home
Apr 20, 2014 - 6:45 PM - by Party
Let me start off by saying that I have grown to really like the orange cap. I did not in the beginning. It best symbolizes what the makeover was supposed to represent: something unique that said "Miami." But as is the case with many other things, I think they are missing an opportunity to do something correctly. Thankfully, after taking a year hiatus, the orange cap is back and being worn for every Friday home game with the home whites.

I want to know which combination everyone prefers of the two below.

Orange cap and black undershirt:

Orange cap with orange undershirt:

Personally, I like everything in orange. It's vibrant, sharp, and unique-- at least for the National League. They should also wear orange helmets with the orange caps. They've worn black helmets with the orange caps. That bothers me to no end, especially considering the orange helmets have not been worn since the exhibition games against the Yankees in 2012.

P.S. Bonus points if the orange cap is matched with the orange socks again. ;)

» Fielding Shifts Cost Marlins

Found this tidbit interesting...

The Marlins are a team that has never committed very seriously to shifting. In 2013, they ranked 18th in baseball in shifts on balls in play, with 180. This year, they have nominally followed the trend of increased shift usage, though the 203 shifts for which they are on pace would actually drop them to 24th in baseball. Furthermore, they are clearly uncomfortable with the idea of dedicating three fielders to one side of the infield, as 85 percent of their shifts have been partial shifts, both last year and this year.

That said, the Marlins managed to use their shifts to efficient effect in 2013, saving themselves nine runs, which was second most in the NL. However, their approach has not been nearly as effective so far this season. Opponents are beating the Marlins' shifts much more often than last year, with their batting average on ground balls and short line drives increasing from .264 in 2013 to .317 thus far this season. As a result, the Marlins' shifts have cost them, to the tune of minus-2 SRS so far.
