After an online campaign, the Marlins have agreed to sign Adam Greenberg to a 1-day contract and allow him to get his one career at bat on October 2, 2012. Greenberg, who recently played for Israel in the World Baseball Classic, made his major league debut against the Marlins in 2008 but his career ended that day when in his first plate appearance, he was struck in the head by a Valerio de los Santos pitch. The goodwill gesture/marketing gimmick was approved by MLB with Greenberg’s one-day salary going to charity.
Good to see former #Marlins third base coach Bo Porter finally getting a managerial job.
At least two Marlins tweeted today about the Ozzie/Bell situation and both appear to be on their manager’s side.
The Marlins were deeply flawed, but Heath Bell destroyed any kind of chance they had to succeed.
I will say this about Heath Bell: If he doesn’t blow all those games in the first half of the season, things may have been different today.
Sounds like the knives are out and everyone is going after someone in the Marlins organization. Situation is getting out of control.
Hopefully Jennings will have the opportunity to replace as many of the Beinfest/Hill team with new faces from outside the organization.
Why not use the we’re-not-rebuilding rebuilding opportunity to bring in someone from the outside? DiPoto, Levine, Ng, Avila all out there.
How does firing Beinfest and replacing him with Jennings make a difference? The whole front office has failed and Jennings is part of that.
Watching the Marlins game from Seoul, South Korea (7,700 miles away). It’s already Wednesday morning. @Marlins @FSMarlins
