FIRING UP THE HOT STOVE

KoehlerI’ve got a jam-packed 2 hours of Marlins Hot Stove talk for you from 7-9 tonight.

Over the course of the 2 hours, I’ll talk with Marlins first base coach and infield instructor extraordinaire Perry Hill (below) as well as Marlins righthander Tom Koehler (right).

I’ll discuss my outside-the-box proposal for a 2015 Marlins batting order, which you can read at http://glenngeffner.mlblogs.com/2015/01/10/shuffling-the-lineup-card/

Former Marlin and current MLB Network Analyst Cliff Floyd shares his thoughts on the moves the Marlins have made this winter.

Our coverage of the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2015 includes a Kyle Sielaff conversation with our own Hall of Famer, Dave Van Horne. Dave was the voice of the Montreal Expos when Hall of Fame electee Pedro Martinez broke through in the big leagues, and he’ll share some terrific memories of a young Pedro beginPerry Hillning on the road to Cooperstown.

And I’ll begin a series on the Marlins’ rivals in the National League East Division with a look at the New York Mets, talking with Mets radio broadcaster Josh Lewin.

Marlins Hot Stove airs every Monday night throughout the offseason on 940 WINZ. You can also listen live on iHeart Radio and at Marlins.com/HotStove.

STAT OF THE DAY (SEPT. 15 at NYM)

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Marlins yesterday became the first team in Baseball to win twice in 2014 when trailing by 3 runs or more in the 9th inning or later. Miami also turned the trick July 28 against the Nationals.

Before 2014, the Marlins had pulled off that feat only once in the last 6 seasons, in an 11-inning 9-6 win at Washington on April 18, 2009.

Yesterday’s amazing finish in Philadelphia probably should not have come as a surprise.

The Marlins and Phillies have played 16 times this season with 13 of the meetings being decided by 3 runs or fewer. Miami is 4-9 in those games, and 3-0 in games decided by 4 runs or more.

9 of the 16 meetings have been decided by one run (Miami is 4-5), 2 have been decided by 2 runs (0-2), and 2 have been decided by 3 runs (0-2).

Including Saturday’s contest, 4 of the games have gone to extra innings (the Marlins are 1-3), and 5 have been decided in walk-off fashion (2-3).

The Marlins and Phillies conclude their remarkable season series with 3 games at Marlins Park next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

STAT OF THE DAY (SEPT. 9 at MIL)

With his 154th career home run last night, Giancarlo Stanton tied Dan Uggla for the Marlins franchise home run lead.

Stanton has hit his 154 home runs in 631 games, while Uggla needed 776 games to slug his 154.

Stanton joins Evan Longoria of the Rays as one of only 2 active players to be his current franchise’s career home run king.

The only active players who rank 2nd in their club’s history are David Wright (whose 230 homers are 22 behind Darryl Strawberry in Mets history) and Paul Konerko (whose 432 home runs are 16 behind Frank Thomas for the top spot on the White Sox career list).

STAT OF THE DAY (SEPTEMBER 3 vs. NYM)

Adeiny Hechavarria last night became the 6th Marlin to collect 10 or more triples in a single season, and is within three 3-base hits of matching Juan Pierre’s 2005 club record of 13 triples.

Juan Pierre 13 in 2005
Jose Reyes 12 in 2012
Juan Pierre 12 in 2004
Hanley Ramirez 11 in 2006
Adeiny Hechavarria 10 in 2014
Luis Castillo 10 in 2001

Hechavarria is tied for 2nd in the National League with his 10 triples, 2 behind Dee Gordon of the Dodgers.

The only Marlin to ever lead the NL in triples is Juan Pierre, who legged out 12 in 2004.

Despite playing in only 270 games over the last 2 seasons, Hechavarria already stands tied for 8th in Marlins history in career triples despite having played, by far, the fewest games among anyone in the top 10.

Luis Castillo 42 in 1128 games
Juan Pierre 34 in 599 games
Hanley Ramirez 26 in 943 games
Alex Gonzalez 23 in 896 games
Mark Kotsay 22 in 468 games
Emilio Bonifacio 20 in 416 games
Kurt Abbott 19 in 424 games
Adeiny Hechavarria 18 in 270 games
Derrek Lee 18 in 844 games
Alfredo Amezaga 17 in 437 games
