Greetings Fish Nation- we’ll do our best to steer you through your case of the Mondays.  Unless of course your chosen career affords you a President’s Day vacay.  Then we’ll just give you something to do on the way to the beach or the movies.  But without further ado, we’ll dive into our top stories for you to take a look at from the weekend.  You can expect Marlin Maniac follow-ups to a couple of these later on in the week, especially one gloomy spoiler alert for 2018.

In an article that really only makes you feel good about the Miami Hurricanes men’s basketball team, the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson sheds some light on the reasons fans shouldn’t bet the ranch on the Marlins lone unsigned (long-term) superstar getting that way anytime soon.

A minor transaction, but as it’s the only piece of real news, we’ll pass it along.  The Marlins have added another arm to the mix, and a lefty at that.  WEEI.com, a fine Red Sox blog, breaks the story and discusses the veteran reliever in question above; his most recent season was spent in Beantown.

Well, ninety-nine prospects weren’t last, and Tyler Kolek almost wasn’t one.  Check out the yearly edition of ESPN’s Keith Law’s Top 100 Prospects above to see where the lone Miami Marlins talent placed on the list.  The answer isn’t pretty, and neither is the projection.
