Morning Marlin Maniacs. Hope you’re rested up after that off day. We’ve got nine straight days of baseball on tap, but hopefully that stretch proves a little less taxing on the hometown nine as this marathon stretch gets played entirely at Marlins Park.
Then again, they do have the second worst home record in baseball. Perhaps they’re better off on the road after all; only the White Sox have won more games away than Miami.

In any event, little new news to report given yesterday’s respite. So we offer you new takes on old news. Be it another penetrating look at Dee Gordon‘s suspension and PED use in the majors, or just a celebration of the team’s recent run of success, we’ve got covered with your morning Fish Flash. let’s dive in.
Because we should open the week with one last, full look at what happened. The New York Times’ Tyler Kepner reports on the incident, giving you the Dragnet-esque take on the biggest non-NBA playoff, non NFL draft, sports storyline of the weekend.
But let’s face it. If you’re reading this, you knew that. You stayed up late, watching the end of that Dodgers game after the Dolphins made their selection like I did. And then while watching Sportscenter play Laremy Tunsil Twitter videos on a loop, got slapped across the face by Major league baseball’s late night announcement. Bleacher Reports’ Zachary Rymer takes you through the emotion, and what a blow this was baseball.
Yes, the weekend did end with the Marlins suffering their worst loss of the season. However, dwelling on that for even a moment would be doing a great injustice to this ballclub as they return home back at .500 for the season thanks to a 7-3 road trip. The Miami Herald’s Rick Braun takes you through the loss, but not without going big picture as well.
