Marlins pitcher Alex Sanabia throws spitball at Phillies

We all know the Marlins are terrible. So terrible that they've closed off the upper deck of their stadium for this week's series against the Phillies because no one in Miami cares about them.

We all know the Marlins are terrible. So terrible that they've closed off the upper deck of their stadium for this week's series against the Phillies because no one in Miami cares about them.

But it's possible to play bad baseball and still be classy about it. You could, for example, beat the Phillies three straight times even if you lose to almost everyone else.

Or you could throw a spitball after giving up a solo home run to Domonic Brown

Congratulations, Alex Sanabia. You got people to pay attention to your team.

Your prize is being labeled as a jerk.
