Morning Marlin Maniacs- congratulations on surviving Monday.  Bad enough that it marks the start of the work week, but it also saw a Jose Fernandez start fail to receive tv or radio coverage! The injustice!

Consider me rankled.  But onwards with the Fish Flash, your hopefully number one source for quick links to the Miami Marlins news stories you should be reading instead of Miami Dolphins trade reports and articles commemorating Peyton Manning.

Well read those too actually.  If you’re reading a fan blog, we’re kind of counting on your sports obsession.  Enjoy the links, and we’ll flash you again on Wednesday.

Jose 2.0 Coming Out This Year?  

That’s the hope for the Miami Marlins organization anyway, per the indefatigable Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.  Just pretend it’s Don Mattingly or Jim Benedict in the picture at the top, and not David Samson.  Tinkering with his pitch selection might be just the ticket to getting another full year out of one the best pitchers in the game.

Marcell Ozuna Could Be Good- This Was Really A Story 

In his NL rundown of “Make or Break” players, ESPN’s David Schoenfield taps Marcell Ozuna as the Miami Marlins contribution to the auspiciously praised club.  Will certainly make him a fantasy target of mine if he continues with the hot hitting we’ve seen so far in camp.

Buy Lots of Hot Dogs From This Man 

And we close with a bit of human interest.  Several intrepid reporters, MLB.com’s Paul Hagen (also of Crocodile Dundee fame I think) among them, made the connection at Sunday’s Marlins-Tigers training tilt that All-Star second baseman shared a very special bond with the Tigers grill-man, Eddie Roper.  Worth a read.  Not to mention a phone call to whoever your own grill-man was growing up.
