Welcome to Marlin Maniac, the Miami Marlins news and opinions site brought to you by the FanSided Network. Marlin Maniac is dedicated to providing top-notch Marlins news, views and original content. This site also serves as a community for like-minded fans to come together to catch up on the latest news and to discuss their passion.
Ever since I can remember, I have loved the game of baseball. I literally breathe, eat, and sleep baseball. Have been a huge Marlins fan since the day I watched my first game in 1999. When I combined my passion for writing with my passion for baseball and the Marlins, I found a role as the Editor of the Marlin Maniac. Hope is to one day become a national baseball journalist. Currently resides in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but was born and raised in South Florida.
As a kid I was always drawn to sports. Growing up in South Florida I quickly became a Miami fan. As an adult I have been able to put that passion and knowledge to good use by joining the Fansided.com group as the Co-Editor for the Marlin Maniac page. I love to write about and discuss sports with anybody. Please share any thoughts you have with me and as always, thanks for reading!
Growing up in Culver City, California Placido's dream was to replace his favorite player, Steve Garvey, as the clean up hitter for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He still roots for those Dodgers, but has also become an avid follower of the Marlins since moving to Miami in 1993. A career in finance has naturally drawn him to become interested in the statistical analysis aspect of baseball.
I was born and raised in South Florida, currently living in Boston, Mass. I grew up watching the Marlins, and have become obsessed with the team over the past couple of seasons. I've stayed true to the fish through it all, and I take pride having spat on the Red Sox bandwagon every time it rolls around.
Die hard Fish Fan since 1993. Was the lone representative for the Marlins in the The Top 52 for the 2013 MLB Fan Cave and The 2013 Ultimate Marlins Fan Cave Crasher . If you want to follow me on twitter go ahead and drop me a tweet. I love talking baseball with anybody.

We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.
Our work is regularly featured on SI.com and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers in 2013 and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.
From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
