Jeff Francoeur is Still Employed by a Major League Team

From Frenchy’s perspective, it’s just about a best-case scenario: You’ve gone from a hopeless, helpless last-place team to one in the thick of a wild card chase; you’ve been traded not only within your division, but you’re staying in the same time zone and avoiding major travel disruptions. It’s easy to see why he’s excited.

But what’s in it for the Marlins?

Minor league teams & managers brawl in front of hundreds of kids

This basebrawl, which went down between the Reds’ and Marlins’ single-A affiliates last week (with video only emerging yesterday), is already an excellent one: Roundhouse punches everywhere, coaches and managers raining blows on each other, total chaos. It’s made even better for having taken place on Camp Day, thrilling all the children in attendance.

Near the bottom in MLB attendance, the Marlins are now suing ticket holders

This year, even with a team that’s flirting with the .500 mark for the first time in years, Miami is averaging just 20,508 fans per game, which ranks 26th in the league.

The answer to the team’s box-office woes, obviously, is to start suing season ticket holders.
