How 'bout them Marlins?
Just kidding. Despite the win last night over Atlanta, the Fish are still struggling to stay afloat. The team's front office spent the better part of July trading key members of the organization and freeing up the payroll.
For whatever reason, Heath Bell's still wearing a uniform and Hanley's in Dodger blue. Gaby Sanchez? Gone. Omar Infante? Anibal Sanchez? Pa la calle.
Call it a fire sale or call it tradition, it doesn't matter. At the end of the day, the fans got rammed in the ass again.
