Kings of Crap

How craptastic has this season been for your Florida Marlins? Well, there was Roy Halladay’s perfect game against the Fish back in May. But apparently giving up the 20th perfect game in Major League history wasn’t disconcerting enough, so the organization decided to sell all unused game tickets as souvenirs. Nothing like cashing in on your own team’s epic failure.

But wait! There was also the time when a swarm of bees overtook the seats above the visiting bullpen, forcing officials to tape off Section 102. Then the injury bug bit the Fish in the most absurd ways imaginable: Reigning NL Rookie of the Year Chris Coghlan tore a ligament in his left knee after hitting a teammate in the face with a pie, and Ricky Nolasco blew out his right knee while changing his shoes. And let’s not forget the team’s exposed financial fiasco or the bullpen’s season-long mission to obliterate Josh Johnson’s shot at the Cy Young Award. Your crappy Marlins will host the St. Louis Cardinals at Sun Life Stadium for some Monday-afternoon baseball.
