More reasons to hate the Florida Marlins: Marlins pitch fit about Brian Wilson's orange footwear

Written by Juan Cena on Wednesday, July 28 2010 and posted in SWRT
The Florida Marlins have gotten their boxers in a bunch about San Francisco Giants' relief pitcher Brian Wilson and his pair of orange shoes. Florida manager Edwin Rodriguez considered the orange cleats too much of a distraction on the mound for his hitters and complained to the umpires about them. "A little bit too bright, too flashy," he said.
Seriously, the Marlins are in next to last place at the moment in the National League East, they play in a horrible stadium with a broken scoreboard that owner Jeffery Loria is too much of a cheapskate to fix. There was that hideous Scott Staph Stapp song. And despite two World Series in the past fifteen years, the Marlins are the laughing stock of baseball. And the Fish are worried about a relief pitcher's shoes?
Sheesh! Where the heck is Jay-Z where you need him? Oh, here he is.
The Marlins are supposed to be distracted by orange shoes? They're in Florida, dangit! You mean to say there isn't a single pair of orange sneakers in Florida? With orange being the color used by not only the Gators, but the Miami Hurricanes as well? And oh yeah, don't forget the Dolphins, either. Bothered by orange sneakers? Oh. Child. Please. If the Marlins are  bothered by a pair of shoes, maybe they need to go and grow a pair of something else. Marlins? Ha! They're more like the Chicken of the Sea.
