The Marlins season sucked. The Dodgers season is starting to circle the drain. But that doesn’t mean they’re not still loads of fun. Such as when they’re sparring over Hanley Ramirez‘s rich 2012 legacy.
Bill Shaikin has the story in the L.A. Times. It started yesterday when Marlins president David Samson said that the Marlins traded Ramirez when they realized “We just realized we couldn’t win with him.” Asked for comment, Ramirez said:
“Now are they winning without me?”
Oh, snap. And it’s made even better because, no, the Marlins are not winning without him. Indeed, they are losing at a much more prodigious rate than they were with him.
