Sometimes, athletes are looked at as immortal and inhuman. In many ways, they are so much more powerful and physical than so many of us. Professional athletes are looked at people who grab a bat, hit the ball, catch the ball, and get paid.
How many of us have never been sad? Happy? Angry?

Apparently, Omeranz & Landsma Corporation believes it is the rightful owner of the now Miami Marlins. The group filed a lawsuit claiming team President David Samson auctioned the team for $10 million during an awards banquet in 2008.

Edwin 'La Bomba' Rodriguez carrying on Massachusetts boxing tradition
From John L. Sullivan and Sandy Saddler, to Rocky Marciano and "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler, Massachusetts has been home for some of boxing's all-time greats. The 21st century, though, has been somewhat lean, quantity-wise, to the point that Bay State boxers in particular, New England fighters...
For the second straight year, the Marlins did not place multiple prospects on Baseball America’s top 100. Former first-round pick Christian Yelich, an outfielder who likely will start the season at advanced-Class A Jupiter, was the lone Marlin on the list at No. 41.
The Marlins were one of five teams with only one top 100 prospect along with the Giants, Indians, Phillies and White...

The Miami Marlins made some large moves during the offseason, with signing shortstop Jose Reyes, closer Heath Bell, and starting pitcher Mark Buerhle, along with a few other notable acquisitions.

A bill to help the city of Miami cover the cost of a $1.2 million mistake on a parking garage contract with the Miami Marlins has hit a major constitutional wall.
