It’s probably impossible to conceive but “your” Florida Marlins, the team with the lowest payroll in baseball has not only been in first place for most of the year but has hit more home runs than any other team in the Major Leagues. Oh, that includes all the franchises with a payroll of $100 million or more. It feels great to be able to say that. Unfortunately, our pitching has been atrocious lately but it’s still early and with two new additions to our pitching staff we can hopefully save ourselves from this downward spiral we were just in versus Atlanta & Philadelphia.
So while we currently sit outside of first, let’s at least enjoy the show these guys put on for the 5,000+ fans that occasionally show up to support the team. Baseball fans, it’s time to make space for Mike Jacobs, Dan Uggla, Jorge Cantu, Hanley Ramirez, and others next to these legendary players. Blasphemy!
Jorge Cantu, the Mexican Babe Ruth?
