           One of Adam Greenberg’s recent tries to play baseball on a major stage ended prematurely a few days ago when Team Israel bowed out one victory short of qualifying for next spring’s World Baseball Classic, but the outfielder had a major wish granted this very day when the Miami Marlins surprised the 31-year-old during a Today Show appearance that they will sign the Guilford, CT resident to a one day contract and give him his second major league plate appearance against the New York Mets on Tuesday.

What the hell is this? And what does it do? I guess it’s supposed to be the new Marlins Park home run statue. I’m not sure what it does when the Marlins take one yard, light up?

It’s Rainbow Brite meets trippy acid flashback meets bad carinval ride meets Salvador Dali surrealism, already as it is.

BUSTER_POSEY

Biggie vs. 2pac, Lindsay Lohan vs. Hillary Duff, Bill O’Reilly vs. Keith Olbermann- verbal feuds are fun. And the biggest one of the 2011 MLB season is in full swing.

Giants-Marlins Rivalry Ignited: Logan Morrison vs. Brian Sabean Verbal Battle

Brian Sabean, GM of the San Francisco Giants, was upset about his star catcher getting injured in a collision at the plate.  Brian Sabean kept his mouth mostly closed and let his head coach do the lobbying for slight rule changes- until yesterday.  Some 8 days after the incident, which involved Florida Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins barreling over the Giants’ Buster Posey in the 12th inning of a tied game, Sabean sounded off to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News:

“If I never hear from Cousins again or he never plays another game in the big leagues, I think we’ll all be happy.  He chose to be a hero, in my mind, and if that’s his flash of fame, that’s as good as it’s going to get, pal. We’ll have a long memory.”

How out of line is that??!!

The Marlins Logan Morrison let us know on Sirius/XM with Casey Stern and Jim Bowden yesterday afternoon, h/t (NBC Hardball Talk)
