DENVER, CO - SEPTEMBER 25: J.T. Realmuto /

Good morning to all my fellow Marlin Maniacs and everyone else in Fish Nation. I just wanted to introduce myself to all of you. I’m your host here, Kevin Kraczkowski.

With the 2018 major league baseball season upon us, there’s no shortage of Major League fansites. That is, with the possible exception of the Marlins. Well NO MORE I say!

What can you expect to read about?

  • Pre-series reports – for each of the Marlins’ 52 series this season. This will include a look into Marlins’ history and trends to watch for.
  • Post-game reports – Each game will be recapped for you right here on MM. We will provide reviews that will focus on basic AND advanced statistics.
  • Minor-League reports – A daily Farm Wrap detailing the goings on in Batavia, Greensboro, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Jupiter, and the Dominican Republic.
  • Game Threads for each contest – come in and have a chat with other members of the MM community.
  • Podcasts – focusing on the Marlins and on the NL East in general
  • Cross-blog interviews – We’ll be seeking out experts from other teams and going around the table to get a feel for them prior to upcoming series.
  • Player interviews – Once in a while, we’ll get lucky and talk to a few of these guys about their play, their time on the road, and what they get up to when they’re not playing baseball.
  • Season Previews – We’ll be taking a look at the rotation, the starters, the bullpen, the bench, the management, and prospects over the next week. Join as we gear up for the first pitch of the major league season. Jose Urena will be tossing it against the Chicago Cubs at 12:40 in the afternoon next Thursday. I hope it’s a strike! (edit: it was).

With that in mind, the door is always open for new contributors. The sites here on FanSided average five bloggers, and I could use some help. If you’re interested, drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do to get you on board.
