Happy Weekend Marlin Maniacs.  Certainly nice to get that first win under our belt on the young season.  Not to mention having those rain delays be the fault of another city- the novelty still hasn’t worn off there.  As we gear up for our first official weekend of baseball, let’s dive get to our Fish Flash.  From the latest in modern tech to how the rotation is now set to stack up, we’ve got your covered.  Let’s dive in.

Sabemetrics- There’s An App For That  

Marlins Park fans have been entreated since it opened to avail themselves of all the latest apps to “check in” at the park, or order up Taste of Miami treats right to their seat.  According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, it looks as if the team is going in the same direction.  Only instead of ordering up medianoches, Marlins players in 2016 will be ordering up the latest videos and scouting reports on the opposition, via their very own new dugout technology.  Check it out.

Rain, Rain…Rotation Delay  

While Marlins starter Adam Conley technically allowed the fewest runs in three tries so far this year, it was David Phelps who earned the win yesterday due to Mother Nature cutting Conley’s day short after just one inning of work.  As a result, Miami has some interesting options when the rotation sets up next week, and there are multiple names that could benefit.  Worth a look, especially if setting those fantasy lineups.

Road Warriors…They Were Not 

Last season, saying the Marlins had some issues on the road would be putting it kindly.  The Herald’s Andre Fernandez  makes it clear that the team is determined to reverse that trend in 2016.  And so far so good after Thursday’s victory- keep it rolling Fish.
