Fish Bites


Good afternoon, fellow Maniacs! Now that Marlins Diehards has joined in on the fun of linking others, I had better get my stuff out in a hurry. Here are the week’s best Marlins-related reads for your viewing pleasure.

- Josh Johnson is the National League Pitcher of the Month for April. In other news, the sky is blue.

- Tim Elfrink of the Miami New Times has an in-depth look at why the Marlins’ new stadium deal is filled with lies. I’ve never been a proponent of the new stadium deal and how it swindled Miami-Dade county, especially in light of the news that the Marlins make a good amount of money. This just reaffirms that stance. Nevertheless, it’s happening, and there’s little the county can do other than fork up the dough.

- Chris Coghlan may have problems all season with a nagging shoulder injury. Luckily, his shoulder won’t affect him too much in center field for the most part. However, I’d be concerned about things other than his shoulder; his rate of contact is way down and he’s not going to keep this power stroke up for much longer.

- Two links coming from one of MM’s favorite sites, Strip Club With Stanton. First, SCwS implores you to play a fun new Wikipedia game based on Mike Stanton. Second, he asks where you were on this most glorious of days. I was in bed reading coverage of a pro wrestling PPV when I found out about both events of that faithful day.

- In response to this article by SBNation’s Jeff Sullivan on how the Marlins’ hipster-friendliness, Dave over at Marlins Diehards had this response that I cannot fully decipher. Dave, are you deriding Jeff’s humor, or going along with it? I personally found Jeff’s article pretty funny, though I am still a big fan of the Fuck Yeah Hipster meme.

- Bleacher Report’s Tony Capobianco hands out grades for the new Marlins in April. I think he was a little light on his marks, especially for the massively struggling Omar Infante.
