Seriously. Take a look at this site and come back to me.
Notice anything odd? Like the fact that the Miami Marlins do not own the rights to miamimarlins.com?! Type in any other teamname.com, and that team’s MLB page will pop up. But not this one.
And whoever did this is a f**king genius.
You would think the Marlins would be able to fix this problem. I’m sure they know of the issue (at least I hope so), and whoever owns this site, probably doesn’t have as much money as the owner of the Marlins. He can be bought, whether it be season tickets, or whatever.
But somehow the site is still up. So either the Marlins don’t really care, or the creator of this site is just playing with them. And I really hope for the latter. Messing with people of power is something I really admire…even if this dude is just a filthy internet squatter (says the troll).

The Marlins pitcher is just the latest in a long line of baseball players to fall victim to a bizarre off-the-field injury.
Heath Bell's chance to impress his new teammates went awry.
Scott Rolen drove in the winning run in the ninth inning with a sharp infield single that third baseman Hanley Ramirez failed to handle, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a come-from-behind 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Jay Bruce started the comeback with his second home run of the game and third of the season...

You know, Joe and I briefly discussed this last week and as days go by I think about it more and more.
In my sports fan life, I have the teams I cheer for passionately. We are all Mets fans, but for me, I also cannot stand the Philadelphia Phillies, NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox (went to school surrounded by annoying Sox fans), and the Atlanta Braves. That is in order too.
The Miami Marlins have announced that manager Ozzie Guillen has been suspended for five games effective immediately for his controversial remarks regarding Fidel Castro. Here’s the Marlins’ statement on the suspension:The Miami Marlins announced today the suspension of manager Ozzie Guillen for five games effective immediately. The Marlins acknowledge the seriousness of the comments...
My colleague Rob Kelley has already levied his opinion on the Ozzie Guillen controversy. People all over the internet yesterday and today have called for the Marlins to fire Guillen, suspend Guillen, or send him to sensitivity training. Yet, I haven’t seen anyone yet ask the most obvious question: why did the Marlins hire Guillen in the first place? It seems to me...

Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen managed the team to a 6-2 victory in Citizens Bank Park on Monday afternoon, promising to fly home to address his recent statements about Cuban dictator Fidel Castro as soon as possible. It turns out Guillen will not be returning...
Mondays suck can really SUCK, especially when the Phillies drop 2 of 3 to the Pirates, and lose the Home opener to the Miami Marlins!
But Listen, there’s a product out there you make you feel better… “Phillitol.” The official Pill of Phillies Fans.
Listen to the commercial from Philadelphia’s very own, Wired 96.5:
After Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria’s comments belittling the surrounding population in Miami, the team’s manager Ozzie Guillen decided to try and one-up him. In a story in Time Magazine, Guillen said that he loves Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and respects him for staying in power for so long. Not exactly the best thing to
The Marlins rightfully suspended Ozzie. Now they need to put the
incident behind them.
The Miami Marlins have a new ballpark, a new manager, a new name and a number of high-profile free agent signees joining a solid nucleus of young players who are developing into solid players. Adding Ozzie Guillen as the field general alone would make Miami a team to watch, but all these other factors make the Marlins one of the most difficult teams to project heading into the season...
