The Malos Get An A For Effort

jose fernandez 3Other than the people who truly are not to be admired and admonished like Tom “Faggot” Brady or Faggot State, The New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, or anything from Kansas or New Jersey, I want to be fair and give positve reinforment where it’s due. For the Miami Marlins, through what has had to be a tedious, and underwhelming season, it hasn’t been for lack of effort from this over glorified double A club we call our MLB Franchise. After beating the Washington Nationals 2 out of 3 before the All-Star Break, the Miami Marlins send Pitcher Jose Fernandez as their lone All-Star representative. jose fernandez 2Miami is 35- 58 and would be 2nd in the Major League if you turned your newspaper with the standings upside down. The Astros with a measly 33 wins are the winners of the 1st overall pick award, and with the Marlins being 18 games behind an Atlanta Braves team thats depleted, and yet somehow playing the best baseball they have since Bobby Cox was waddling the dugout. Unless the Marlins Major League 2 it up, it seems unlikely they will take the 2nd wildcard spot. As a Miamian, I truly hope we cag our way in like the San Diego Padres did that one year they made the playoffs with a losing record.

Now in the theme of positvity and fairness, I want to hand out true heart felt praise to athletes making the best out of this joke of a situation that is Luria’s Marlins. There is something to be said for jobbers who finally get a full time position, as well as, youngsters that haven’t soared higher than AA ball making a ALL-Star roster. The fact they’ve hustled 35 wins in the Majors, with a roster that might get cut in AAA is something to be said about the effort being turned in by our Miami Marlins.jose fernandez 1

First, and arguably this season THE brightest star in the Marlins skyline, Pitcher Jose Fernandez. A 20 year old chasing his American dream, was born in Santa Clara, Cuba which is my Grand fathers home town. The champion was tossing 93 mph at 14 years old, and despite no real MLB experience made his debut 4/7/13 and is 5-5 with a 2.74 ERA and 103 strike outs. The effort put in by this modest Cuban that makes me proud of my heritage was enough to get him voted to the National League All Star team. He is the lone Marlin on the roster.

Other players that deserve the FOS Sports pat on the back for busting there ass even though their job pretty much sucks are, 1B Greg Dobbs, OF Marcell Ozuna, OF Chris Coughlin, P Kevin Slowey, 3B Placido Polanco, and despite his struggles probably due to frustration OF Giancarlo “Mike” Stanton.

Dobby is naturally a 3rd baseman, yet has seen most of his time this season as a 1st baseman.Greg+Dobbs 1 To me showing the team what it is to play where you’re team needs you and not the position that is best for Greg. Sacrifice is hard and Dobbs and making the best of his Titanic Voyage.

Marcell-Ozuna-Getty-Images 1Marcell Ozuna has been busting his ass literally since his first start months ago and hasn’t looked back. Arguably the Miami Marlins most live bat batting .273 and a slugging % of .404. Hats off to a pheonix rising from baseball obscurity.

s-CHRIS-COGHLANChris Coughlin is a Marlins player im happy to write about positivly, a team player who has almost been forgotten about time and again, has seemingly found a starters groove and is making solid catches and hitting relatively well. A Marlin you recognize, hopefully Coughlin plays B- baseball so its good, but we dont lose him to anyone with 1 dollar more than the Marlins.

081211-placido-polanco-400Placido Polanco, what can be said about this old man whose doing his best to show the Phillies they shouldn’t have let him go. Basically our defacto Team Captain since he’s been there with the Phillies, and has earned it with effort, and a clutch play here and there. Born in 1975, one might wonder how much tread if any is left on this Dominican’s tires, but that being said he’s been doing some great driving considering his road conditions and tread state.

One of the jobbers I previously mentioned who I hope catches on in multi year fashion is good ole Kevin Slowey. Everytime this pitcher takes the mound you know you have a epic like battle on your hands, even if it is a little slow. With a 87 mph average, Kevin fights as hard as any pitcher I’ve ever seen and has posted a 3-6 record and a 4.0 ERA. Kevin SloweyDespite his detriments Kevin has turned in some impressive outings including that 20 inning game he basically won with 7 to 8 innings of superb curveball, and slider pitching. Slowey hopefully you are one of the few who stays on board this rambling wreck we call the Miami Marlins.

Finally and regratably, Mike or Giancarlo or whatever he’s going by these days. It is frustrating to me that my grandfather’s favorite Marlin, who clearly wants to win, is so sad with the situation that only flashes have been viewed this season. Stanton has Miguel Cabrera Jr. written all over him, and if the Marlins stanton 3win any sort of title, let alone a World Series, it would be because this man is playing fantatstic. Inspiring his fellow teammates with good play and acting like a real man off the field. I know in my heart this guy is a undiscovered Juggernaut, I just hope his suit and Helmet don Miami Marlins Black and Orange as he does it.

As the Roller Coaster that is the MLB second half of the season rares to its next L loop, as a fan you hope we hop skotch our way in to that newly made Wildcard 2 spot. Realistically we’d be lucky to make 60 wins, but I have no issues defending and praising the men trying to make this lemonade situation sell. Being that we are one of the youngest teams hopefully we keep a little talent before we find another Josh Johnson or Miguel Cabrera, so we can bring yet another championship trophy to the greatest city in the world, Miami, FL. Good Luck Jose, kick some ass and represent at the All- Star game sir.fernandez 4
