Kenley Jansen may be the key to the Marlins' plans for 2017, but do they have a fallback option in place?
The 2016 Marlins faced one of the most difficult seasons in recent memory, as the sudden death of
in a tragic boating accident left a scar on the team, the city, and all of baseball. Jose Fernandez
In the wake of Fernandez's death on September 25, the future of the Marlins' rotation was on no one's mind and rightfully so. In those moments we must remember that baseball is simply a game, a sport, a job, a hobby. It's comprised of human beings who have a purpose, a story, and a life beyond the diamond. No one should have been asking baseball questions.

Edinson Volquez is the right man for the job, but will he actually be any good at it?

Miami will never forget Jose Fernandez, but they could take steps to ensure his name is forever linked to the team.
Dee Gordon provided the best tribute to we’re going to see in 2016, and for that matter, the best moment of 2016 in MLB, with his performance on Monday night. It wasn’t so much that he hit his first home run of a trying season on his first swing since Fernandez’s death, but the way he then ran the bases, fighting back tears for a moment, then letting them flow. It was the way he wiped his eyes and pointed to the sky, the way he then hugged so many of his coaches and teammates, none of them jubilant, none giddy, all just overcome and leaning on each other because the alternative (as it has been since Sunday morning, for so many inside and outside the Marlins organization) seemed to be to physically fall down under the weight of it all. Jose Fernandez
That moment was terrible and beautiful, everything we ask sports to be. Often, even when we ask that much of sports, they don’t provide it. Sports aren’t designed to comfort the grieving or to unite the divided or to inspire the desperate. Every so often, though, when the right people end up in the middle of sports’ peculiar dramas, those people can make sports really substantial. Gordon and his teammates (and in a less obvious way, the gracious Mets) did some of that heavy lifting Monday.

Becoming fans of Jose Fernandez linked a daughter and mother, in life and in death.
wasn’t just a great pitcher, he was a symbol that held so much meaning, not just to everyone in baseball, but to many people in the Miami community and around the world. We didn’t just lose a star athlete too soon, we lost an all-encompassing asset to all our lives. Fernandez helped us see parts of ourselves, he reflected parts of us--such as our love for the game--that for some, has gotten lost in the translation of adulthood, and he has opened our eyes to ways in which we can improve our quality of life through pride, joy, innocence, and selflessness. Jose Fernandez
My awareness of Fernandez as anything more than a Cuban rookie pitcher who was taking the National League by storm was minimal in 2013. The intriguing young star piqued my interest for the very first time after this incident, Fernandez’s first big -eague home run, and what followed.

Baltimore goes dumpster diving, Cleveland brings Coco Crisp home, and the Jeff Francoeur tour adds another stop. The franchise you couldn't say a nice word about six months ago has overperformed and put itself into a playoff race. The route has been especially baffling.
It’s generally hard to define a franchise. Franchises are full of hundreds of people, each of them with his or her own hopes, dreams, college GPAs and skills. Teams that are bad at actual baseball can hold noble philosophies, can play a vital role in their communities, can be lovable losers or compassionate antiheroes. Except the Marlins, the one team everyone knows how to feel about. In the 2016 BP Annual, Matthew Trueblood excoriated Jeffrey Loria and Associates for nearly every decision they made last year: Read the full article... The Marlins have had a great year so far! Why we despair for them.
Since their baseball transformation in 2012, the
have always been an under-the-radar type of entertaining baseball story, good and bad. From taking on the crassness of Miami Marlins to be their first year manager, to having their general manager play dress-up in the dugout for nearly a full season, to watching one of baseball’s greatest and oldest hitters join the 3,000 club in their uniform — the Miami Marlins organization has been riddled with good “Hey, remember that time...” tales to rehash.

Seattle adds a pair of oddities to the bullpen and Miami makes an interesting pickup from Atlanta.
Seven players change hands in a deal that might seem confusing for any team but the Marlins.
The Red Sox finally lose a whole series, the Angels lose under protest, and Giancarlo Stanton makes a pretty picture.
Last year, he pitched. This year, he walks (and once again hits). How, and what's next?
