ESPN Accidently Schedules Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins had no games on ESPN last season. ESPN was going to go the same route again, but Billy the Marlins was sneaky enough to get into the ESPN schedule making meeting and get the Marlins some games nationally televised this season.

In 2012, the first two games of the Marlins season will be broadcast on ESPN. Opening day will feature a nationally broadcast ESPN game for the Marlins’ to debut at their new ballpark against the St. Louis Cardinals. ESPN2 will show the Marlins visiting the Cincinnati Reds. for their home opener at 4 p.m. on April 5.

Here are some Marlins reactions to being able to open the season on ESPN:

Hanley Ramirez:

“This will be a great oppurtunity for me to show off my jogging skills, this time from third base!”

 

Jose Reyes:

“It would be cool to make my first trip to the DL as a Marlins in a game on ESPN.”

 

Ozzie Guillen:

“**** you. Do you know who the **** I am. The Chicago White Sox are a bunch of *******.”

 

Carlos Zambrano:

“Baseball bat, check. Water cooler, check. Eh, **** it, time to retire again.”

 

Logan Morrison:

“My first career game on ESPN and I cannot rant about how ownership has censored me? FML.”

 

Heath Bell:

“How awesome would it be if I did this when I came into pitch? Marlins fans would love me then, right?”

 

Mike Stanton:

“I am scared to hit a home run because of this thing. Good thing we are going to Cincinnati next, I will hit some bombs there.”
