BEST OF MAXIM
HOLD THE MAYO
The Marlins pitcher is just the latest in a long line of baseball players to fall victim to a bizarre off-the-field injury.
The Miami Marlins picked up their first win of the 2012 season on Saturday as the offense put on a show in a 8-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. After the first two games saw the Fish tally a combined seven hits and one run — questions began to pop up about the bats. Those questions were answered in this game in a big way with three homeruns and a near cycle.

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.
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:
The Marlins rightfully suspended Ozzie. Now they need to put the
incident behind them.
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
