Morning Marlin Maniacs, and Happy Hump Day on this fine 4/20.  Last night’s matchup was as heartbreaking as Monday’s was uplifting, and if you don’t already have tickets in hand to Wednesday’s tilt, you’re likely taking advantage of the radio-only coverage to soak in some Heat and Panthers playoff action.  The Marlins enter play tomorrow at 4-8, and are 1-5 at home this season.  Does offer some hope for that weekend road trip though.

But for those persevering with me on working through this turbulent start to the season, on to our Fish Flash.  From pitching to bling, we’ve got the stories you’ll want to follow.  Let’s dive in.

Adam Conley Electric- Until He Wasn’t  

Adam Conley was great.  Excellent.  Like Jose level dominant, striking out Bryce Harper twice and posting 8 Ks overall. Yet we all know this game didn’t go exactly to plan.  MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro fills you in on what went wrong, but more importantly he has the story on the lessons Conley already hopes to learn from the experience.

Nobody Breaks The Bank For Bling Like Loria 

And you thought it was just a Hanley love fest thing.  Nope, per Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, team owner Jeffrey Loria is happy to dole out of extra special hardware of his own whenever anyone in a Marlins uniform wins a batting title.  Check out Dee’s new hardware above.

Barraclough Back, And Not A Minute Too Soon  

So apparently, all it took was getting swept by the Braves to the break the emergency glass on the bullpen after all.  Though to be fair, Kyle Barraclough was doing extremely well at AAA New Orleans.  Glenn Sattell has the MLB.com exclusive.
