Miami Marlins Fish Flash 6/10
Morning Marlin Maniacs, TGIF from the Pacific Time Zone. Last forty-eight hours have been spent trekking across the Western Plains, Route 66, and a sliver of desert to arrive in Phoenix just in time to kick off a round of baseball stadium hopping and non-stop Marlins baseball. So apologies for leaving you by your lonesome to endure that two-game losing streak to a team that’s challenging the Braves for the title of “Worst Team In Baseball That’d Be Great If They Could Play the Marlins Everyday.” But the payoff is a ton of coverage, stadium pieces, and regular reporting for the duration of the club’s West Coast swing.

Marlins Nab A Lefty With Top Pick
Leading off, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro gives you the rundown on the latest addition to the Marlins organization. Fingers crossed Braxton Garrett is bit more Josh Beckett, and a bit less Tyler Kolek.
It’s All Fun and Games Until Someone Loses A Couple Starts
Next up, for the sake of clarity, we throw you a link to the other big prospect story of the week. George Richards and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald spill the beans on how last year’s top pick Josh Naylor injured another prospect named Garrett in the course of playing a practical joke. Few days old, but want to make sure we’re all on the same page there’s no first round envy going on amongst the Single A ranks. Yet.
Stanton Wins Another Participation Award
Lastly, Chris Landers of Cut4 at MLB.com has a write up on Giancarlo Stanton‘s latest achievement: hitting a ground ball uber hard. Hopefully, the big guy’s breaking of his extended futility streak though. Interest number crunching though; enjoy.
