Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton leaves game with strained right hamstring, goes on disabled list
Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton left Mondays game in the 10th inning with a strained right hamstring, which he injured while trying to beat out a throw to first on a nubber in front of the plate. Stanton grimaced as he crossed the bag at first, reached back as if to grab his leg, hopped twice, and fell to the ground.

Inside the numbers
The operators of Miamis baseball team hoped a new ballpark would save them. Instead, it has exacerbated already glaring problems.
Dozens of workers who worked around the clock on the construction of Marlins stadium are still waiting for thousands of dollars in back pay.
PolitiFact checked out the Marlins owner’s claim about the stadium’s public financing and ruled he was half right.
For the first time since the team's inception in 1993, the Miami Marlins held open auditions for an organist Monday night at their new stadium.
ECONOMIC TIME MACHINE
One small part of the Marlins stadium bonds comes with a large payback.
Marlins | Winter Meetings
With a big trade made, Marlins executive Larry Beinfest doesn’t expect to spend like last winter, nor shed payroll like in 2006.
IN My Opinion
It would have felt less dishonest, and been a more prudent business and baseball strategy, if the Marlins had done what the cheap and awful Pittsburgh Pirates did, getting a taxpayer-funded ballpark without even bothering to inflate the payroll with fan appeasement. That way, the Marlins could at least argue that they were abiding by some sort of careful and consistent baseball philosophy, looking for cheap value, exploiting market inefficiencies and waiting to spend that extra ballpark revenue when they were closer to winning.
In My Opinion
The loud middle manager was paid millions to go away last week, creating yet more distrust and negative noise for a franchise that seems to lead the league in both. Running a team this way falls between inefficient and dumb overspending to acquire mistakes, getting nothing but noisy controversy out of them and then spending future millions in disposal fees. The Yankees can afford this. The Marlins, even with a new ballpark, cant.
IN MY OPINION
At night, from I-95, the Marlins baseball stadium looks like a huge hump that has inexplicably emerged from our flat landscape. Out of the corner of one’s eye, it resembles a white elephant on the South Florida plain.
In My Opinion
Ahh the All-Star break, somewhere just past halfway in the Marlins conquest of the National League East, nay, the entire National League!
The Franchise offers a surprisingly candid look inside the clubhouse.
Dontrelle Willis, a fan favorite in South Florida who made his mark as a Marlin with his quirky delivery and infectious smile, announced his retirement Monday after a failed comeback bid with the Baltimore Orioles organization.
Marlins 4, Mariners 2
Chris Volstad hadnt added a victory to his pitching resume since the end of April. The Marlins hadnt gained ground on first-place Philadelphia since the end of May.
Marlins 6, Dodgers 1
It was only appropriate that on a night when a small fire erupted in the upper deck at Dodger Stadium, the Marlins used the baseball equivalent of a bucket brigade to douse the Dodgers.
The Marlins knew it would take a while to sort out their bullpen this spring. But it has begun to gain some clarity in recent days. Asked Friday what pitchers he can say, with confidence, would be in his seven-man bullpen on Opening Day, Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said, "as of today'' that group would include closer Leo Nunez, Brian Sanches, Burke Badenhop, Jose Veras and left-handers Dan Meyer and Renyel Pinto.
