Giancarlo Stanton Calls Out the Struggling Marlins

Giancarlo Stanton Calls Out the Struggling MarlinsJonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A popular postseason pick, the Miami Marlins have not looked like a team capable of playing in October early on. Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton made it known that he's frustrated with how the team has played this season. Through 11 games, the Marlins are 3-8, tied for worst in the National League East. "We're not really giving ourselves a chance, it feels like," Stanton said after the team's loss to the New York Mets on Friday night. "We've got a positive vibe, but [something] is just not there. "The fire is not there, it seems like. You always want to have it. But when you're out there and it's game time, it's just nothing there." During the offseason, Stanton agreed on a record-setting $325 million contract. The Marlins also brought in players like Dee Gordon, Mat Latos, Martin Prado, and Michael Morse.

MLB Fines Marlins’ Jarred Cosart For Gambling

MLB Fines Marlins’ Jarred Cosart For Gambling Rob Carr/Getty Images(MIAMI, Fl.) -- Jarred Cosart of the Miami Marlins has been fined by Major League Baseball for placing illegal bets on sporting events through a bookie. Cosart, 24, drew attention after engaging in a Twitter argument that alleged he had bet on sports. Cosart has since deleted his Twitter account. Baseball found that Cosart did not place bets on baseball. "Major League Baseball has completed its investigation into Jarred Cosart's possible connection to sports-related gambling," the commissioner's office said in a statement Friday. "The investigation did not reveal any evidence to suggest that Cosart, who fully cooperated with the investigation, bet on baseball." Baseball has always taken a hard stance against gambling of any kind involving its players.  The 1919 Chicago Black Sox were believed to have thrown the World Series in exchange for money from gamblers and eight members of the team were banned from baseball. The All-Time hits leader, Pete Rose, has been banned from baseball since 1989 after it was discovered that he bet on games while acting as manager of the Cincinnati Reds. Cosart said in a statement through the players' association that "I have never, nor would I ever, bet on" baseball. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

"I'm just excited to continue this process of building this team and this organization in the direction that we know we're headed," Redmond said Sunday.

And we've been able to do that by 15 games in one year, which is not easy to do," Redmond added. Redmond, who played with the Marlins during his playing career, was hired as the manager back in 2013 and has a 139-184 record during that span. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton Out for Season

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton Out for Season Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is officially out for the season. Stanton was hit in the face in a game last Thursday by Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers. The beaning resulted in Stanton suffering facial fractures, dental damages, two black eyes and more than 20 stitches. Stanton was examined by doctors in Miami Tuesday when it was decided the 24-year-old needed more time to recover. "As soon as the injury happened, the most important thing was obviously his health," Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. "That was always at the forefront. We wanted to make sure he received the best care he possibly could get from the second he was carted off the field." Despite being done for the season, Stanton is still a top candidate to win the NL MVP. For the season, he hit .288 with 37 home runs, 89 runs scored, 105 RBIs, 13 stolen bases and a .395 on-base percentage. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
