The Marlins Were a Hilarious Circus of Terrible Baseball Last Night

The Marlins had a decent shot of derailing the red-hot Washington Nationals last night, taking a 3-1 lead in the top of the sixth thanks in part to a Giancarlo Stanton bomb. But then the Marlins realized they are the sad clowns of Major League Baseball and ended up stumbling their way to a 4-3 loss.

Enjoy these clips of major league professional baseball players sliding two-at-a-time into the same base and letting a pop-up drop when a fan calls for the ball.

This delightful piece of baserunning -- which could have been prevented with a few more showings of Tom Emanski's video tips in the clubhouse -- was sparked by Logan Morrison getting caught in a rundown between third and home.

Morrison also fell for the classic fan-yelling-for-a-pop-up trick, which actually is neither a classic nor a trick because no one else falls for this.

The Fish have now lost seven of eight and are narrowly trailing the Houston Astros for most the embarrassing record in baseball.
