Marlins Way: Logan Morrison Adamant About Marlins Park Fences Needing to be Moved in on Twitter


When the Miami Marlins built their new stadium, the thought of having to make changes just two years after it was completed probably never even crossed their minds. However, after two seasons of play at the new ballpark, there is a very large part of the fanbase that would love to see the fences moved in.

We have seen both Marlins and visiting players clearly frustrated when they feel they put a strong charge into the ball, only for it to be caught at or before the warning track. Balls that would likely leave every other ballpark come to die at Marlins Park.

Last night on Twitter, we got a glimpse into the minds of what the Marlins players, and possible prospective free agents considering Miami may feel about the ballpark. It started with Logan Morrison responding to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun-Sentinel answering a fans question:

Nothing wrong with what Logan said, as Miami fans proved to be extremely casual during the NBA Finals last season. LoMo was then told he needed to adjust to his ballpark after a rant about it’s size:

You know that Morrison is not likely alone in these thoughts. This is likely a topic of discussion for Marlins players after every home game in which they feel they had a home run robbed from them due to the park. It’s also likely a hot topic when they strike conversations with opposing players.

If owner Jeffery Loria wants to build a contender again, he may need to give serious thoughts to moving the fences in.

The record showed the Marlins lost 100 games, but the big picture tells Greg Dobbs a different story.

A veteran presence on a youthful squad, Dobbs sees plenty of reasons for optimism as the Marlins move forward. The raw talent, the quality pitching and the players’ camaraderie are reasons the 35-year-old wanted to stick around.
