We won. Stanton went yard. Ozuna made a hilarious throw.

We shut them out yesterday.

Win today and we're 3 back of the Braves.

Pirates lost. Cardinals are tied. Giants are tied.

Late Night With The Fish

10:05 PM

Losing 2 of 3 vs the Rockies and winning 2 of 3 vs the Angels would be a thing the Marlins would do, boys.

Henderson Alvarez will get the ball tonight against lefty Franklin Morales. Giancarlo is hitting .333/.447/.974 with 7 bombs in 11 games at Coors Field.

Also, Brad Penny has been sent to the bullpen. Koehler will pitch Saturday followed by Hand on Sunday, Cosart on Monday and Eovaldi on Tuesday.

I've been waiting for the right opportunity to start this thread. We haven't done this in 3-4 years. This team, which I did not expect would win 75 games, has reached the .500 mark on August 17th and sits just 3 games from the second Wild Card spot. Regardless of what we think will happen as the calendar turns to September, let's enjoy the next couple weeks and reassess. Despite the lack of activity around here this season, this team deserves this thread and our attention.

Without further hesitation:

Reds and Giants are ahead, Bucs are scoreless, and Atlanta plays later tonight.

When was the last time we were at .500 this late into a season?

Marlins Not Trading Stanton, Will Pursue Top-Of-Rotation Starters In Offseason
By Steve Adams [August 13, 2014 at 9:23pm CDT]
Reports have surfaced that the Marlins plan to make legitimate run at extending Giancarlo Stanton this offseason, and’s Joe Frisaro hears the same, shedding more light on the situation. According to his sources, the Marlins are serious about not only building around Stanton, but supplementing him by adding a top-flight starter this winter. Frisaro says the 2015 payroll could jump to $75MM, which, while modest relative to the rest of the league, would be about $30MM higher than the team’s Opening Day payroll from the current season. He suggests that the team could make a run at James Shields on the open market, who would front the rotation while Jose Fernandez rehabs from Tommy John surgery.

Suffice it to say, Frisaro gets the impression that the Marlins won’t be trading Stanton under any circumstances this offseason. In fact, he hears that even in the event that Stanton doesn’t sign an extension, the team is comfortable going year-to-year and keeping him as long as possible, then watching him leave in free agency. Miami feels that it has built a team that can be a serious postseason contender in 2015 and 2016 — Stanton’s final two years of arbitration eligibility.

As it stands right now, the Marlins could slot a free agent starter atop their rotation and fill in the remaining four spots with Henderson Alvarez, Nathan Eovaldi, Jarred Cosart and Tom Koehler. Fernandez projects to return around the All-Star break next year, if not sooner, and the team also has one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball — Andrew Heaney — looming in the minor leagues. With rising young talent such as Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna on board, that would seem to be enough to give them a chance to contend in 2015.

Frisaro adds that in the hypothetical event that the Marlins ever do decide to move Stanton, it won’t be solely for a package of prospects. The Marlins would require Major League talent from another club’s roster in addition to top prospects in order to part with their elite slugger. As Frisaro writes: “You’re not going to see a repeat of the Miguel Cabrera trade. It’s not going to be Stanton for six prospects.”
