The Marlins Have No Fans ...

Now they have less.

The three or four lost souls who occasionally venture down to Menudo Memorial Stadium in Little Havana to see the Marlins "play" are upset. Some accuse our sainted ex-captain of collusion, as if he remains loyal to the beloved Yankees despite his exciting new role of frontman for the Miami "team." Others contend those nasty Yankees once again are taking advantage of a weak team.

The truth is far simpler and less dramatic. Mike "Giancarlo" Stanton declined the privilege of going to St. Louis and San Francisco, and the Dodgers didn't want him. Where else is there to go? (The Flushing Nine was not even a consideration, of course.)

On the bright side, in addition to his prodigious swing and gaudy numbers, Stanton is injured often, so Clint Frazier may indeed get more paying time, either in the Bronx or possibly Atlanta. Or maybe Ellsbury, whom we seem to be stuck with, might rise to the occasion.

So fret not, you few Miami fans: it's all good, just not for you.
