The day after Jose Fernandez died, Michael Hill sat down at his desk, took a deep breath and tended to his first big procedural chore as president of baseball operations for the Miami Marlins. He logged on to the Major League Baseball database, typed the word deceased next to Fernandezs name and removed him from the teams active roster.The seven weeks since have been a blur of emptiness and obligation for Hill and Miamis front office. The Marlins still grieve daily over the loss of Fernandez, who died Sept. 25 with two companions in a boat crash off the south Florida coast. But Hill and the executives and scouts on his watch are also conscious of their mandate to put the best possible team they can on the field for 2017. The task is exponentially more difficult without Fernandez, who was yanked from their presence without a semblance of a warning.Hills office at Marlins Park overlooks the West Plaza where the team painted a stadium pillar orange and fans lined up by the hundreds to inscribe messages of love and remembrance in the days after Fernandezs death. Every now and then, a passerby stops to pay respects or take a photo. Then the fan moves on, and Hill is left with a swirl of emotions and the gravity of his mission.You never forget the human [side] or what happened, but you know you have a job to do, Hill said. Were never going to replace Jose, but we have to try to move forward. The memory of him will always be with us and be a part of who we are. Thats a bond well all have forever.Fernandezs death came during a time of promise and hope for the Miami organization. A young Marlins roster improved from 71 to 79 victories under first-year manager Don Mattingly, and the pieces were in place to bring continued growth. Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton is one of the games elite power hitters. Left fielder Christian Yelich just won a Silver Slugger Award at age 24. And the foursome of catcher J.T. Realmuto, shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, second baseman Dee Gordon and center fielder Marcell Ozuna combine to give the Marlins a strong up-the-middle presence.Starting pitching was the tenuous link in the teams chain, with the exception of the stability Fernandez provided every fifth day.In 29 starts in 2016, Fernandez logged a 2.86 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP and 12.5 strikeouts per nine innings. In comparison, Miamis other 12 starters combined for a 4.70 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP and 7.2 strikeouts per nine.The Marlins arent even entertaining the possibility of trying to replace Fernandez, because his impact was so profound. If spring training began today, Miamis rotation would consist of Wei-Yin Chen, Adam Conley, Tom Koehler, Justin Nicolino and Jose Urena. Even if the Marlins wanted to sign a big name -- which is typically a foreign proposition for them -- the free-agent market is bereft of front-of-the-rotation arms. The other alternative is a trade, and they lack the talent in their farm system to make a run at Chris Sale, Sonny Gray, Chris Archer or other commonly mentioned alternatives.Miamis top pitching prospects are a ways away. Tyler Kolek, a former first-round pick with a 100 mph fastball, underwent Tommy John surgery in April. Lefty Braxton Garrett, selected out of an Alabama high school with the seventh pick of the 2016 draft, will begin his journey through the minors in the spring. During the Arizona Fall League, the Marlins have been monitoring the progress of starter Jarlin Garcia and reliever Drew Steckenrider. Scouts regard both as future big leaguers, but neither is the type to anchor a staff.With few alternatives, the Marlins have discussed fortifying their staff at the back end to help compensate for the loss of Fernandezs 182 innings. Relievers A.J. Ramos, David Phelps, Kyle Barraclough and Brian Ellington combined for 332 strikeouts in 256? innings this season. If the Marlins can add a power arm or two this winter, theyll have a bullpen that will take some heat off the rotation and allow Mattingly to pick his spots.We leaned on our bullpen a lot last year because it was a strength for us, and our starting pitching on the whole wasnt as strong, Hill said. To build that way is another route we can take. Get versatile, multi-inning pieces in the bullpen and try to shorten a game. Weve seen the trends of late with Kansas City and [Cleveland] in the postseason. We have the pieces in place already, so that might be a way to ease the blow.If Hill is looking for a current road map on how to move past Fernandez on and off the field, none exist. The closest comparable came two years ago in St. Louis, when star outfield prospect Oscar Taveras died in a car accident in his native Dominican Republic at age 22.Taveras death marked the third encounter with tragedy for St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak in 20 years with the organization. Mozeliak was assistant GM under Walt Jocketty when veteran starter Darryl Kile died of a heart ailment in 2002, and was in the same role when pitcher Josh Hancock was killed in a car accident in 2007.Mozeliak reached out to Hill immediately after Fernandezs death, and the two have spoken several times since. Among the insights Mozeliak has shared: Work can be therapeutic.You want to be respectful to the parents and siblings and people in that inner circle who are going to grieve for a long time, Mozeliak said. But going back to business actually helps with the healing. Its hard to get your hands around a tragedy when youre [forcing yourself] not to think about it. When you have something to focus on -- like getting the club going again from an organizational standpoint -- it makes it a lot easier.At the time of Taveras death, he was regarded as an elite prospect still trying to get over the hump. Taveras had just hit .239 with a .590 OPS in 80 games as a rookie, and the Cardinals knew he had some maturing to do and adjustments to make to take his game to another level.The Cardinals were coming off a 90-win season and a National League Central title in 2014, and Mozeliak couldnt afford to stand pat and let things sort themselves out in the spring. So he made a bold offseason move, acquiring right fielder Jason Heyward and reliever Jordan Walden from the Atlanta Braves for pitchers Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins before Thanksgiving. Heyward logged a .293/.359/.439 slash line and won a Gold Glove to help the Cardinals win 100 games in 2015 before leaving to sign a $184 million contract with the Chicago Cubs.What the Marlins are doing, and specifically Mike Hill, is a little different than what we were dealing with, Mozeliak said. He was dealing with the rumors: Do we trade Jose Fernandez or try to sign him long term? Jose had already established himself as one of the elite players at the major league level.Not to sound callous or coldhearted, but I remember shortly after Oscars passing I was reflecting and I said to a few people, Were not going to miss him next year from a baseball standpoint. Its going to be two or three or four years down the road, when we dont have the No. 3 hitter we thought wed have.Left without their ace, the Marlins try to take solace in positive signs. Stanton, Miamis quiet superstar, assumed more of a vocal leadership role in the days after Fernandezs death, and the players and staff grew closer amid painful circumstances. But Fernandezs absence wont truly hit home until the first day of spring training in Jupiter, Florida, when the clubhouse will be a much quieter place.You felt Jose every fifth day on the mound, and the energy he brought, Hill said. But this was also a young man who loved life and lived it to the fullest. He had a pure energy and passion for the game that was infectious. I dont think you can separate the two.As the Marlins go down an uncharted path this offseason, the memories of Fernandez will simultaneously haunt and sustain them. Theyre still trying to process the unimaginable, while doing their best to make it through another day. Niles Paul Jersey . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Fabian Moreau Jersey .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. http://www.cheapredskinsjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-dexter-manley-jersey .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. Charley Taylor Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Ryan Kerrigan Jersey . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. With the blowtorch heating up on South Sydney, its only fitting they head to sunny Cairns to keep their NRL season alive.The 13th-placed Rabbitohs are banking on a change of scenery to kickstart their campaign when they host defending premiers North Queensland at Barlow Park on Sunday afternoon.I think the temperature up there is around 24-25 degrees, Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire said.Looking forward to getting away with the boys. Its always good to go into a different environment, spend a bit of time together, away from footy as well, just to be able to chat and tell a few jokes.But while the forecasters are predicting a lovely setting, the heat is ramping up on the 2014 premiers, who have lost their past four to fall six points out of the top eight.It means they now have to win eight of their final nine regular season games to make the finals, including this weeks daunting assignment against the third-placed Cowboys.As North Queensland trumpeted the re-signings of premiership-winning players Justin ONeill and Ethan Lowe on Friday, rumours have been awash in Redfern overnight of the imminent sacking of Paul Carter.South Sydney confirmed on Friday that they have stood down the 24-year-old firebrand for failing to turn up to a training session, casting extreme doubt over his future at the club.AA fitness cloud also hangs over halfback Adam Reynolds, who trained for the first time on Thursday and remains a game-time decision after picking up a shoulder injury on duty for NSW in Origin II.ddddddddddddHes good, (but) we actually need him to test himself (on Saturday) just to make sure, Maguire said.Its really more just a nerve through his shoulder which they need to look after but hes heading in the right direction which is great.For the Cowboys, Javid Bowen or Tautau Moga are on standby for Kane Linnett (calf), and Ray Thompson is deputising for Michael Morgan (knee).Like he did with Manly last week, North Queensland coach Paul Green is expecting the Rabbitohs to fight for their season.Theyll be desperate, therell be plenty in this game, he said.STATS THAT MATTER* A total of at least 50 points have been scored in the Rabbitohs past three games theyve hosted at Barlow Park in Cairns, winning two of them.* South Sydney have won all four of the matches theyve led at halftime this season, but have only done so once in their past 10 games.* John Sutton becomes the first player in Rabbitohs history to play 250 games, and Gavin Cooper plays his 150th for the Cowboys.
