Dee-lightful to see you Marlin Maniacs, welcome to the Fish Flash.
See what I did there? If not, we’ll get to that in a minute.
But it’s hard not to be excited today. The Marlins are 55-46, and with Jose Fernandez on the mound, have their best chance yet to make it to that season-best mark of ten games over .500. For the first time in franchise history, the team has put together four straight winning months. And all of that with the Trade Deadline approaching, and a Wild Card rival coming to town in the St. Louis Cardinals.

So let’s stoke the fires of the baseball appetite. From an All-Star upgrade to the roster, to a heartfelt apology, to an upcoming major South Florida event, we’ve got you covered. Time to dive in.
Dee Says He’s Sorry
That about sums it up. Nice gesture that he didn’t necessarily have to make.
"BREAKING NEWS: Dee Gordon (@FlashGJr) sends apology to fans before returning to the @Marlins tonight.https://t.co/E5b5a7qMkb— UNINTERRUPTED (@uninterrupted) July 28, 2016"
Starting to sound like a children’s book series, isn’t it? The Miami Herald’s Jordan McPherson has the write up on the return to the roster of the Marlins wayward All-Star, and touches on how the team expects to manage the transition.
Lastly, the Marlins made a grand unveiling prior to yesterday’s pummeling of the Philadelphia Phillies. With the commissioner himself in town to help, Jeffrey Loria unveiled the brand spanking new logo for next year’s All-Star Game. Take a look- Home Run Statue aside, it’s not half bad.
