From Holdout Sports:

Miami Marlins second baseman Emilio Bonifacio caught a popup near the first base line to end the second inning of Friday night's game in D.C. against the Washington Nationals. Afterwards, Bonifacio turned towards the stands and wound his arm back as if he were going to toss the ball to a fan. Instead, however, he faked out the Nationals fans as he headed back to the dugout without giving anyone a souvenir. 

Now that wasn't very nice.

Karma may have also caught up to Bonifacio; he left the game with a thumb injury and is likely to miss a few weeks.

The injury is not as severe this...

Marlins' Bonifacio re-injures thumb; is his season over?

The Miami Marlins' 5-2 win Friday night, which salvaged a doubleheader split, was overshadowed by another injury to second baseman Emilio Bonifacio.

Miami Marlins Already Trying to Dump Carlos Lee

Another Hypothetical Heath Bell Deal

The Miami Marlins grand experiment hasn’t worked this year, leading to the trades of Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez, Omar Infante and Randy Choate before the non-waiver trade deadline. In a perfect world, they wouldn’t have had to trade those players, because they would still be fighting for a playoff spot at this point in the season. But it hasn’t been a perfect world for...
