Pair of Marlins fight for dominance of third base

The Marlins tried to sneak two runners onto a single base. Naturally, the baseball press blamed Yasiel Puig. This and other Tim Tebow news awaits us today. - Well, I hope you know how to subside on shaming, self-righteous columns written by men with varying degrees of hair, because that’s what Yasiel Puig sentenced us to after getting benched in mid-game for “disciplinary reasons.” - Aw, come on, Marlins.

  • Tim Tebow may not be able to throw very accurately, or while running, or during a football game, but I’ll be gosh darned if he’s not gonna get one more chance.
  • “I have a lot of friends who have been hit by cars,” is something a cyclist really shouldn’t have to say just because he or she lives in a big city. 
  • Adam LaRoche feels bad enough about striking out, he doesn't need you mouthing off to him, floating baseball helmet.

Roger Bernadina has fit right in...left 10 men on base himself last night. 0-6.

  • Meanwhile some teams don’t even really need outfielders, when they have Didi Gregorious.

  • Hey, here’s a fun thought as summer comes to a close – we’ve all been sleeping in a wretched hive of skittering bed bugs. And before you think, “Yes, well, it’s a universal problem, can’t really escape it,” keep in mind that in Philly, there are more bed bugs than anywhere else. Except Cincinnati, obviously.
  • Top-half-of-the-order hitter Brandon Phillips is really angry at how his low on base percentage makes it look like his on base percentage isn’t very high.
  • Sure, we could show you a squirrel running onto the court at the U.S. Open like everybody else. But wouldn’t you rather see… Air Jordan vs. BBQ sauce?!
