At least the Marlins are having fun

They may be losing often and losing badly, but at least the Marlins are still having fun.

Joe Capozzi’s latest explains how how, if you’re slower than Miguel Olivo, you suffer the double indignity of (a) having to play bellhop at the team hotel; and (b) having the world know you’re slower than Miguel Olivo.

It also has a pic of Marlins players dressed up all silly for the getaway day flight yesterday.

I guess winning would be more fun, but at least the Fish are making the best of things.

    I definitely don’t hold it against them; I think most of these guys have an understanding of what’s going on and more than a few of them have to realize they might not be in the show if not for the relatively unique set of circumstances brought about by the loathsome owner for whom they play. Might as well enjoy it while they have a chance to enjoy it.

      Aside from being in Congress, where else can you be paid so well for doing something so badly?

    There are a few surviving members of the 1962 Mets who are sitting in their rocking chairs laughing there asses off at the ineptitude of the 2013 Marlins. Have fun now fellas because this losing wont be fun for long.

    Is this our first ever example of good “team chemistry” on a losing team?

      Yeah, kinda like cold fusion. Too bad The Journal of Irreproducible Results doesn’t have a sports section.

    I’m going to the Twins-Marlins game tomorrow in hopes of seeing the most futile game in the history of baseball. And Giancarlo Stanton.
    Suggestions for a mild-mannered faux protest sign? Right now the leader is “Dumbledore wouldn’t have let Jeffrey Loria Happen”

      Nature abhors a vacuum too, but there you have it. Anyway, imagine Dumbledore and Valdemort rolling around on the ground, gouging eyes and pulling hair, over who gets to keep him.

    Yeah, for a guy who just got rocked, Sanabia looks pretty happy. For a guy who just committed something like his fourth error in three games back and isn’t hitting his weight yet, the Iron Giant looks pretty slick too. For a guy who sets anxiety levels rising every time he runs in from the boolpen, you gotta hand it to A. J. Ramos. And for a guy who must be praying he’ll be traded before the July deadline, Reecky Nolasco looks like a local access cable preacher. All in all, quite a collection of happy losers.
