Marlins Win Race for First 2010 MiLB Drug Suspension

1

Maury Brown reports that Adam Kam of the GCL Marlins received a 50-game suspension for Boldenone and Boldione. Technically somebody else got suspended as well, but since the other guy is a free agent, I'm claiming this one for the Fish.

The Padres are getting all kinds of hits on closer Heath Bell -- almost a dozen teams have expressed interest -- and not surprisingly, the Florida Marlins have been among the most aggressive teams, reports ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney. The Marlins have had issues at the back end of their bullpen for much of the season, and Bell would solidify that spot. The Padres have made it clear to other teams that while they are not intent on moving Bell, they will be willing to make a trade if somebody makes an aggressive offer that can help the San Diego organization in the long run. Bell, an NL All-Star this year, has converted 25 of 26 save chances, while compiling a 2.01 ERA.

Bullpen Usage Tables

I really like this. And with the numerous bullpen abuses the Marlins have suffered (slash put themselves through) this year, it is an especially valuable tool. See at a glance who has thrown how many innings (and pitches) in the last few days. Plus relevant stats for that period. I can see a new game coming out of this. We'll call it "Fredi Can't Possibly Use Him Today" Yes, it's come to this.

Stanton Showing Better Approach

2

Pretty big Baseball America post on Stanton's much-improved strikeout rate. Stanton spent the first two months of the 2008 season striking out in one-third of his trips to the plate. But since then, he has shown steady improvement, and scouts have taken notice. Stanton, who didn’t turn 19 until November, started striking out less and walking more. Part of the improved walk rate has nothing to do with Stanton’s approach but with the way opposing pitchers have been approaching him lately. But scouts say the young slugger also has been waiting for better pitches to hit, allowing his power to manifest itself in game situations.
