H. Wayne Huizenga, a college dropout who built a business empire that included Blockbuster Entertainment, AutoNation and three professional sports franchises, has died. He was 80.
Derek Jeter won five World Series during a 20-year run with the New York Yankees. He piled up 3,465 hits and made the All-Star team 14 times while becoming one of baseball’s biggest stars. Will that success continue in the front office of the Miami Marlins? Stay tuned.

The Florida Marlins made another long-term investment in their young, talented outfield. Left fielder Christian Yelich agreed to a seven-year contract worth about $49.6 million, a person familiar with the situation said Thursday. The person confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it hadn’t been announced.
MIAMI – With the bases loaded, two outs and the score 0-0 in the bottom of the ninth, Henderson Alvarez stood in the Miami Marlins’ on-deck circle, bat in hand, hoping to complete his no-hitter. Alvarez had blanked the Detroit Tigers for nine innings – and briefly, mistakenly thought he had pitched a no-hitter. But the Marlins needed a run for him to achieve the feat.
LOS ANGELES – This weekend’s series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Miami Marlins matches last-place teams that took wildly divergent routes to the cellar. New Dodgers ownership splurged for a star-studded roster and the highest payroll in baseball – a $230 million collection of talent that has produced the worst record in the National League West. And yet the Dodgers, despite a 13-21 record before Saturday’s game, lead the major leagues in attendance.
As a player, Mike Redmond was baseball comfort food. Consider some of the descriptives that attached themselves to him in the course of his 13 major league seasons: reliable, savvy, genuine, valued, self-effacing, resolute, trusted. A grinder. An earner. A survivor. He could be leashed in the dugout for six games, then get the call for a seventh and perform with no discernible rust. He kept clubhouses loose, pitchers calm and reporters charmed.
The Miami Marlins’ celebrity manager was a bust, so they’re calling one up from the minors. Mike Redmond, who spent the past two years managing Class A teams in the Toronto Blue Jays’ system, was hired Thursday by the Marlins to replace Ozzie Guillen.
The Florida Marlins re-signed Greg Dobbs on Tuesday, giving him $3 million for two years. They agreed to a trade for Carlos Zambrano on Wednesday, and there went Dobbs’ at-bats.
Through it all, Edwin Rodriguez kept his sense of humor. The Florida Marlins’ manager talked about ghost stories and the team’s hotel. He joked about moving the calendar ahead to July in hopes of escaping an awful June. As it turns out, that long, 10-game losing streak hurt more than he showed.
