Miami Marlins bench coach Joey Cora
wanted nothing to do with Carlos Lee's fist bump as Lee headed out to the field for the ninth inning of Tuesday night's game against the New York Mets.
Since Cora wouldn't reciprocate, Lee took it upon himself to grab Cora's arm with one hand to bump his own fist.

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...
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...
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.

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...
