    This is great news in two ways. Loria is out of baseball, and Jeter's group will probably be incompetent and we won't have to worry about the Marlins as a rival for a decade or so until they move to, uh, let's say Norfolk.

    Bryce Harper leaves the game early tonight after a play at 1B.

    Not sure I've seen a knee injury like that since Willis McGahee.

    Apparently not as bad as it looked. Just a bone bruise, no ligament damage.

    Jeter is talking about removing the home run thingy from the Marlins' stadium, per Deadspin.

    So he's removing the outfield bleachers from Tapioca Stadium and making all long balls in-play?

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    I actually like that garish sculpture. Makes the stadium "unique."

    The fish tank makes it unique. The sculpture just looks like a Titanic god on acid threw up.

    Rip it out and put a giant gift basket in CF. If you hit a ball into it you and Jeets DP the ballgirl right on the mound. <-- NSFW

    people, it's awesome. it's horrible and ugly and campy and PERFECT.

    If you can't have a gaudy, brightly colored, flamingo-and-marlin-laden sculpture in Miami, WHERE CAN YOU HAVE IT?

    just when you think it can't get any more kitschy... THE BIG MARLIN ON TOP SPINS AROUND! it's the BEST.

    I am honestly not being sarcastic. I love that thing. I acknowledge it is unforgivably ugly and every horrible adjective you can throw at it. It was even better seeing it in person.

    p.s. no one should be surprised Derek Jeter has no appreciation of whimsy. He's probably going to pour bleach in the aquariums when no one's looking.

    p.p.s. We had this conversation before the park opened, and unsurprisingly, Kepler, aparch and I were on the same sides we are now. My only change is I like it even MORE.

    This. It's in the city that's fueled by neon, cocaine, and EDM, WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot do you expect them to have?

    Wait until you see this ejection out of Angel Hernandez tonight. He ejects Ian Kinsler for looking back at a pitch called a ball.
