But apparently things are all better now. Joe Capozzi reports:
Most days after spring training workouts end, the baseball competition continues for Hanley Ramirez and Jose Reyes.
The $25 million left side of the Marlins’ infield will go to one of their apartments, sit down in front of a television and turn on PlayStation.
“The machine doesn’t allow us to play the same team, so I play with Boston, he plays with the Phillies,’ Reyes said Thursday after the Marlins’ 3-1 win over the New York Mets.
Not that this means anything. My children play Wii together and every other game ends with fights and allegations of cheating. So pardon me if I don’t believe that everything is rosy on the left side of the Marlins infield just yet.
