Bash Brothers 2.0

I tend to compare players of today to players that I cheered for as a kid.  And for some reason, I continue to compare the Florida Marlins of 2008 & 2009 to the ‘Bash Brothers’ from the Oakland A’s teams of the late 1980’s.

Although the fish have nobody hitting moon shots, they have a very solid line-up of players that can deliver the long ball.  Amazingly, they don’t have a single player with the physique of a Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco, or Dave Henderson, but they still blast their fare-share of home runs.

If it’s not Dan uggla, it’s Jorge Cantu.  If it’s not Jorge Cantu, it’s Hanley Ramirez, If it’s not Hanley Ramirez, it’s Jeremy Hermida.  And if it’s not Jeremy Hermida, it’s Cody Ross!!!  You’ve got to love the Fish!!!
