The Miami Marlins were actually very good at one point, but that point was about a month ago. Since then, they have been very disappointing. After seeing themselves a 1/2 game behind the Washington Nationals for first place in the NL East, they have dropped nine games back.
Last night, the Marlins played the Milwaukee Brewers. The South Beach Fishies were down 9-2 at one point, but rallied and sent the game into extra innings. The comeback was spoiled though as the Marlins lost 13-12 in those extra innings. In the post-game interview, Ozzie Guillen pretty much blew up. Via the Miami Herald:
“Make sure Miami people don’t [expletive] Bell,” Guillen said angrily to reporters, but loud enough for players, including Bell and starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez, in the hushed clubhouse to hear. “Bell gave up two runs. How about the rest of the [expletives] 10 or 12 runs they scored? That’s why this [expletive] game is not [expletive] fair. It’s Ozzie talking [expletive]? No. It’s Ozzie talking the truth, about how [expletive] we were before that [expletive] inning. Put that [expletive] down!”
