Chris Bosh to the Heat’s Kids: Lead

In the morning, we will post my 35-minute conversation with former Heat forward Chris Bosh, on everything from cologne to controversy to glory. And we will insert the link here, so you can listen to all of it, on Apple or Android. But here's one clip that may get some attention. Bosh has never been ...

Marlins starting pitching serves as a solid foundation

Marlins starting pitching serves as a solid foundation

/ / South Florida
If there’s one thing to feel good about the Marlins this season it’s their starting pitching. The Marlins are one of three teams in baseball to have used only five starting pitchers so far this season. The other two are the Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals. The last time the Marlins went so far into ...

Who is the Bran Stark of Miami sports?

Who is the Bran Stark of Miami sports?

/ / South Florida
Don't hit us with "no spoilers." Everyone who has ever watched Game of Thrones has probably seen -- and complained about -- the finale by now, so all bets are off here. Bran Stark is on the Iron Throne, at least until the not-yet-dead characters reunite for a cinematic moneygrab, and a lot of people ...

Alcántara's impressive shutout sweeps the Mets

Alcántara’s impressive shutout sweeps the Mets

Sandy Alcántara needed only 89 pitches to throw nine shutout innings and complete the sweep for the Miami Marlins against the New York Mets. Alcántara only allowed two base hits (soft liners) by J.D. Davis and only one runner reached second base, because of his own error in the eight after a chopper hit right ...

Will the Dolphins win a game? Numbers (sort of) say no

Will the Dolphins win a game? Numbers (sort of) say no

It's time to call upon the ghost of Greg Camarillo. Actually, the former Dolphins receiver is very much alive, living in California with his family (and you can follow him @CatchCamarillo). I’ve been killin’ it the last 24 hrs!1. Locked keys in car. Got 1 of 3 kids to school. 2. Discovered gas leak in ...

Can the Heat find another Justise or Bam at 13?

Can the Heat find another Justise or Bam at 13?

The Heat will continue to need to build through the middle, unless they can flip picks and players for a superstar, which doesn't seem especially likely over the next season. Until that opportunity arises, Miami's front office and scouting staff will be looking at options for No. 13 this season, hoping to get a player ...

Caleb Smith: "I try to strike everybody out."

Caleb Smith: “I try to strike everybody out.”

/ / South Florida
There is no better sports story in South Florida at the moment than Caleb Smith. Most local fans aren't paying close attention, because the Marlins as a whole are historically inept. But Smith, 27, has been a revelation before and now after lat muscle surgery, posting a 3-1 record with a 2.25 ERA this season, ...

Marlins' scoring problems becoming comical

Marlins’ scoring problems becoming comical

We knew it would be bad. But this bad? We didn't. The Marlins didn't either. Our Craig Mish of Swings and Mishes summed it up perfectly Tuesday night, after the Marlins were shut out for the eighth time in 40 games -- while recording just 10 wins. Barring something unforeseen the Marlins are headed toward ...

Adam Gase keeps failing forward fast

Adam Gase keeps failing forward fast

It's been quite the soft, lucrative landing for failed quarterback whisperer Adam Gase. The former Dolphins head coach, who created more excuses than first downs last season before his firing, snapped up a job with the New York Jets. Now he's got a second one there, after the surprising, oddly timed firing of Mike Maccagnan ...

Scenes from a Miami Heat lottery party

Scenes from a Miami Heat lottery party

We didn't win.... But we didn't lose! The Miami Heat had about the same chance to jump into the top 4 of Tuesday's NBA Draft lottery as they did to drop from No. 13 to 14. And they didn't do either. They stayed at No. 13. Which should count as a small victory for our ...

Harold Ramírez y su oportunidad de oro con los Marlins

Harold Ramírez llegó a punta de batazos a Grandes Ligas. Esa es la realidad. La poca fanaticada que aún sigue a los Marlins ha sufrido de una de los peores comienzos ofensivos de una alineación que se recuerden en la corta historia de esta franquicia. Ramírez ganó el título de bateo en Doble A la ...

Josh Rosen discusses overcoming the negative perception about him during his introductory news conference with the Miami Dolphins. (Craig Davis)

All Hail the Hebrew Hammer… or Chosen Rosen

A new era of Miami Dolphins football starts Tuesday in Davie. P.T. That doesn't stand for Post Traumatic, though it could. It stands for Post Tannehill. Ryan is in Tennessee, failing to feel pressure in the pocket, and a new sheriff is in town. A sheriff who may celebrate the Sabbath. Great to get back ...

NBA Lottery Watch Party! Tuesday, 7 p.m.

NBA Lottery Watch Party! Tuesday, 7 p.m.

We will win one of these eventually. It probably won't be Tuesday night, when the Miami Heat have a 4.8 percent chance to get in the top 4 of the 2019 NBA Draft -- and a 1 percent chance of the top pick, which could mean Duke forward Zion Williamson. But we're trying anyway. We ...

NBA's Final Four followed the path Heat taking

NBA’s Final Four followed the path Heat taking

The Miami Heat, as currently constituted, are nowhere near the NBA's Conference Finals. They weren't as good as any of the bottom four teams in the East's playoff bracket -- and none of those teams, after Victor Oladipo was injured for Indiana, were all that good.  But, at the very least, there is some validation ...
