Currently the Houston Astros and Miami Marlins are making a mockery of fielding a competitive team. With the Astros current roster,  Bud Norris is their highest paid player at $3 million and Carlos Pena making $2.9, after that it drops to $2 million for Jose Veras, and then $1.025 is the next highest player. The Red Sox are paying their fourth outfielder $5 million and back up catcher $3.1 million. Boston has 21 players that make more than the fourth highest on Houston’s roster.

Miami Marlins pitching prospect Jose Fernandez was asked about new team manager Mike Redmond during an interview. His response? "Who?"

It’s not breaking news that Jeffrey Loria isn’t the most popular person in South Florida. In fact, he’s barely more popular than Fidel Castro.
