2014: Miami Marlins Team Preview
March 28, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
The Miami Marlins' 2013 campaign began with an offseason fire sale.
It ended with Henderson Alvarez's no-hitter.
So there's that.
What happened in between was a lot of losses for the Marlins, who went just 62-100 under first year manager Mike Redmond as they reached triple digits in setbacks for the first time since 1998.
The Marlins also had gutted their roster ahead of the '98 season, but at least they had won the World Series the previous year. That wasn't the case going into 2013 and in the end, the Marlins finished with the worst record in the National League while posting their third straight last-place finish in the NL East.
It wasn't all bad in Miami as outfielder Giancarlo Stanton shook off an injury-plagued season to hit 24 homers in 116 games. And most importantly, he finished the year still in a Marlins uniform.
