Beloved star dies in horrible boat accident, and team trying to honor him this season has worst record in baseball. Now the long-awaited sale of that team hits a snag. The Miami Marlins continue a cursed franchise, and fans who somehow remain loyal through it all may be the best fans in South Florida.
LeBron and Steph’s collision course, horse racing, the stinkin’ Miami Marlins, Dolphins offseason and hockey playoffs make this week’s Miami Herald Hot Button Top 5, the Sunday list of what South Florida sports fans are talking about.
At the current rate, the Marlins’ pitching staff will finish with the highest walk total of any major-league team this century. Throw in the fact they have hit at least one batter in 12 of their past 13 games and the result becomes obvious.
