Miami Marlins Franchise History:
The Florida Marlins joined the National League in 1993 and were renamed the Miami Marlins in 2012. The Marlins improved in each of their first four seasons in the MLB and in 1997 secured wild card berth after finishing behind the Atlanta Braves in the National League East Division. The Marlins went on to upset the Braves and defeated the Cleveland Indians in seven dramatic games to win the World Series. At the end of the season Marlins management made the controversial decision to trade away some of their best players in what became known as a 'fire sale'. The Marlins depleted roster had no chance of defending their title and finished the season with the worst record in the league. The franchise struggled over the next five seasons but in 2003 returned to the playoffs through a wildcard berth. For the second time in their history the Marlins swept through the playoffs and capture the World Series Championship. The Marlins have not returned to the playoffs since meaning they have won the World Series every time they have qualified for the playoffs.
Miami Marlins Offensive Star: Giancarlo Stanton
Giancarlo Stanton was selected with the 76th overall pick of the 2007 MLB draft. Stanton dominated in the minor leagues and quickly became recognized as one of the best prospects in Baseball. In 2010, at just twenty years of age, Stanton was called up to the Majors and scored twice on debut. Stanton became known for his powerful hitting and finished the season as an All-Star Rookie Outfielder. Although he was plagued by injuries Stanton maintained his stellar record of power hitting, hitting the longest home runs of the season at four different ballparks. In 2012 Stanton was awarded for his excellent from with selection for the MLB All-Star game. Stanton is the standout offensive weapon for the Miami Marlins but needs more support from his teammates.
Miami Marlins Defensive Star: Ricky Nolasco
Ricky Nolasco was selected in the fourth round of the 2001 MLB draft by the Chicago Cubs. Nolasco toiled in the Cubs minor league system before being traded to the Miami Marlins in 2005. The right handed generally played as a reliever in his early years at the Marlins but was promoted to starter during the 2008 season. Nolasco has developed into a consistent, yet unspectacular, starting pitcher who many experts consider to have been unlucky in recent seasons. The thirty-year-old is one player who needs to step up his game if the Marlins are going to have a winning season in 2013.
Miami Marlins Manager: Mike Redmond
Mike Redmond will be making his Major League Baseball managerial debut in 2013 with the Miami Marlins. Redmond retired as a player in 2010 and was named manager of the Lansing Lugnuts, in the Midwest League, the following season. After impressing he was promoted to coach the Dunedin Blue Jays before being named the new manager of the Miami Marlins at the end of 2010. Redmond has the potential to become an excellent manager and Marlins fans are hoping he can lead the franchise to their first winning season since 2009.
