Miami Marlins Fish Flash 5/5:
Morning Marlin Maniacs, TGIF to you, and welcome to your Miami Marlins Fish Flash.
I won’t lie, I expected bigger things for the Miami Marlins since last we Fish Flashed. But the Tampa Bay Rays, and really Tim Beckham specifically, had other plans.
The club has only won three of their last ten games, and while blaming the offense is easy, it has truly been a team effort these past two weeks.
Off the field, the big story continues to be those ongoing sale talks. Long term, that’s awesome stuff. But, fans of members of the 2017 Miami Marlins roster might want to look before they leap here.

Personally, I can see that going a lot of ways, and not all of them good for 2017, or even 2018, production. We also went at length a while ago as to some possibilities that may happen.
But for those of us that have shrugged off a week of a tough losses, and remain ready to dive into the weekend ready for all things Miami Marlins baseball.
Your Fish Flash offering has arrived. From that aforementioned sale of the club, to a new member of the team’s power family, to a not so subtle rebuke from a franchise icon. We’ve got you covered. Time to dive in.

Leading off, Jeff Todd of MLB Trade Rumors did a great write up just laying out the present status of the Miami Marlins sale talks. Informative and a quick read, it lets you know how team and city could be impacted without requiring you to have earned a degree in economics.
It’s A Family Thing
So, Marlins fans all know that Marcell Ozuna‘s power is no joke. But according to Chris Landers of MLB.com’s Cut 4, he’s not even the best hitter in his house. Take a look at who can out-hit the Marlins’ slugger.
Called Out By A Legend
When amateur sports bloggers call out the Miami Marlins starting rotation, that’s bad enough. But when a franchise legend does it, it’s even worse. ESPN.com provides the above brief write-up filling you in on just who exactly is displeased with what he’s seen so far.
