Things really are getting bad down in Miami. The Dolphins suck and the Marlins, at a record of 69-92, are a whopping 28 games behind Washington going into today’s season finale. Fans gave up, Ozzie Guillen lost control and players mailed it in back in August. Last night, as Carlos Lee was trotting out to the field in the 9th inning, he went for a friendly fist pound with teammate Alex Cora. Said fist bump didn’t go according to plan.
Lee was so desperate to not be left hanging that he picked up Cora’s hand and forced him into it. The whole time Cora had the most unenthusiastic, douchey look on his face. Lee’s enthusiasm is bewildering. A 3-3 game this late in the season? Why the enthusiasm? Do you really want extra innings?
At least Marlins fans have the lovely ladies of The Clevelander to keep them happy!

0-1, 1 Strikeout, 0.000 BA. That is how Miami Marlins one at bat pinch-hitter Adam Greenberg’s Topps rookie baseball card will read on the back. Topp’s announced on Wednesday that they will make a baseball card for Adam Greenberg. Their claim, “Adam Greenberg @Marlins embodies dedication, hard work & persistence.” They also left out the [...]
MIAMI It seems the only argument about what sort of season the Miami Marlins had is which grading system to use.
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was asked how he would rate the campaign.
By numbers or by letters? he said.
How about both?
Letters, Z, Guillen said. Numbers, minus-0. We failed in every department. We failed. Very sad and very embarrassing and a very tough situation...
It was brief, but it was oh so sweet. Arguably the most amazing strikeout of just about anyone's career, Adam Greenberg will remember Tuesday night for the rest of his life. After a seven-year hiatus, Greenberg was given the opportunity to dig back into the batters' box. A member of the Cubs seven years ago, Greenberg was drilled in the back of the head on the first pitch...
Tuesday night finally came for Adam Greenberg, as his seven years of waiting for a second chance in the Major Leagues came to fruition after signing a one day contract with the Miami Marlins. Greenberg stepped up to the plate to face the Mets’ R.A. Dickey in the bottom of the 6th as Aerosmith’s Dream On echoed throughout Marlins Park. The Miami fans were at their classiest...
The nightclub near the Miami Marlins' bullpen drew capacity crowds. The fish tanks behind home plate, the Cuban sandwiches in the food court and the air-conditioned comfort under the retractable roof also won raves.
The team? Not so much. While Miami's new ballpark was a hit this year, the ballclub was a flop.
The Marlins rebranded their franchise, changing the name as...
The old adage "it couldn't happen to a better person" is, for the most part, trite.But when you talk about Adam Greenberg and his opportunity to get one at bat in the Majors...it, well, it couldn't happen to a better person.By now, you know Greenberg's story, but in case you need a quick refresher, more than seven years ago, dude was hit in the head by Valerio...
South Park once said, "If irony were strawberries, we'd all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now."
A truck delivering fish crashed into the Loria Center, named for Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, on Monday morning. No one was injured.
Perfect. Just perfect. Utter perfection.
Its only fitting that after a disastrous Marlins season, a truck full of fish its a building...
The second at-bat in the career of Adam Greenberg occurred Tuesday night. Greenberg signed a one day contract with the Florida Marlins after an online petition was started in order to get him a second chance.
In Greenberg’s second chance he whiffed on three pitches from New York Mets starter RA Dickey.
Dickey is a 20 game winner this season and is considered a leading candidate...
Adam Greenberg’s trek back to the major leagues will result in more than a recorded strikeout in the record books against R.A. Dickey. The 31-year-old Greenberg, who recently signed with the Miami Marlins to a one-day contract after his career was derailed in 2005 after being hit in the head with a pitch, struck out...Read the Rest...
A young fan made an impressive backhand catch of a foul ball with his glove as he leaned over a railing during Tuesday night's Miami Marlins game against the New York Mets.
It happened in the ninth inning as Mets batter Jordany Valdespin hit a foul ball into the stands in short left field at Marlin Park. The young man reached over the nearby railing with his glove and made...
The Miami Marlins are rumored to be looking for Ozzie Guillen’s replacement despite the fact he still currently holds the job. Names that have floated around included Brad Ausmus, Mike Lowell, and Bo Porter before the latter signed with the Houston Astros. One name that hasn’t been mentioned is Jack McKeon and that is unfortunate as he may be the best man for the job...
MIAMI (AP) -- New York Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey struck out one-shot wonder Adam Greenberg, but also gave up two homers in his final start of a Cy Young-hopeful season and the Mets lost to the Miami Marlins in 11 innings 4-3 Tuesday.
The Marlins' Greenberg struck out on three pitches against Dickey when he batted for the first time in seven years in the sixth inning. Greenberg...
Adam Greenberg finally had his dream recognized with the Marlins in last night’s 4-3 routing of the Amazin’s. After years and years of perseverance, over 22,000 signatures, nearly 2,400 minor and independent league at-bats, Greenberg beat the odds for one one-day contract and a second chance at achieving his childhood dream: getting an at-bat in the big leagues.The left hand...

The New York Mets issued nine walks and it eventually caught up to them.
Giancarlo Stanton hit his 37th homer, and Rob Brantly hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth inning to help the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-2 Monday night.
In the bottom of the eighth, Ramon Ramirez (3-4) allowed a leadoff walk to Carlos Lee and then allowed Lee to reach second on a wild pitch...
