Short rest no biggie for Beckett
Talk to Josh Beckett about the short rest between starts he'll have when he pitches Game 6, and he'll just shrug his shoulders. The day before the biggest start of his life, the Marlins ace was just interested in some short rest in the form of a nap. Full story >
Jack McKeon unplugged
Marlins skipper Jack McKeon has not only won over the hearts of his club and its fans, he's also become a favorite of the baseball media. The cigar-smoking straight talker's press conferences at times have resembled a night at the Improv. Full story >

Game 5, Oct. 23, 2003  Marlins 6, Yankees 4  Wrapup >
The Marlins won Game 5 with what got them this far in the first place -- two-out hits, speed and defense. It's the kind of baseball they've been playing all year, but outsiders seemingly are just now buying into the "small ball" style, two days before the Marlins could win Game 6 to clinch the World Series title. More >

Game 3, Oct. 21, 2003  Yankees 6, Marlins 1  Wrapup >
With the rain pouring down at Pro Player Stadium, Josh Beckett was masterful, surrendering two runs and striking out 10. Still, it wasn't enough, as the lack of little things added up to a 6-1 Marlins' loss in Game 3 of the World Series on Tuesday.
