Due to the new expanded instant replays rules that are going into effect during the 2014 season, the Marlins have brought on Pat Shine as its Major League administrative coach to help in the instant-replay process.
Working with team’s longtime video coördinator Cullen McRae. The two will be tasked with sitting in the video room during games, reviewing possible plays to challenge and informing the manager Mike Redmond when to use his challenges.
Shine will be a apart of the Marlins coaching staff, he will be the seventh member of the Marlins coaching staff. The MLB allows teams up to seven coaches on their staff, which most teams employee as their second hitting coach.
Pat Shine will bring a coaching background with him, having held head coaching positions at colleges in the past in California.

The streak is over. Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez on Wednesday allowed his first hit since September, giving up a one-out single to B.J. Upton in the first inning of Atlanta’s 3-1 victory. Alvarez then picked off Upton.
The Miami Marlins have developed a reputation for rushing prospects to the majors over the last few years. What is their philosophy on that matter and, given the success of some of their recent attempts, is it the right formula for the team?
Here on Marlin Maniac:
With the rise of outfield prospects in the Marlins farm system, the team finds itself in a logjam situation. At this moment, it is projected that the Marlins outfield will be inhabited by Christian Yelich at left, Marcell Ozuna in center, and uber power bat Giancarlo Stanton in right. Highly touted prospect Jake Marisnick is waiting in the wings as his bat as yet to reach his defensive prowess in the outfield. But the question has to be asked.
Welcome back to the Greatest Moments in Marlins History. The Marlins have had a lot of great walk-offs in their history. In the 1997 NLDS the first two playoff games in Marlins history were walk-offs. Also, who could forget Giancarlo Stanton’s Mother’s Day walk-off? How about moment 20’s wild pitch walk-off to seal Henderson Alvarez’s no-hitter? We have so many great walk-off moments on this countdown, and moment 19 is no exception.
How’s this for a shocker, Rob Brantly is actually hitting again. (I know, kind of strange writing that sentence)
