Astros claim Wade LeBlanc

NEW YORK -- Wade LeBlanc won't be coming back to the Marlins.

The Astros claimed the left-hander on Saturday. LeBlanc, who was 3-10 with a combined 4.30 ERA in 38 appearances for the Marlins over the past two seasons, was designated for assignment on Monday.

He still needed five more days to clear waivers and get reassigned.

Nice of the Marlins broadcast vaudeville act to have 80's Wall Street securities fraudster ex con Michael Milken as a guest. After his prison term,Milken was barred for life by the SEC,from any securites work. Which the SEC and MLB would do the same to Loria,after a similar Milken type prison sentence. Karma.

the Truth

Selig wont do anything to Loria.Before Selig got into MLB, he was a thieving lying conman car salesman himself. Birds of a feather like Milken,Loria and Selig,flock together.

the Truth

Lomo pulled in the 3rd inning w/Jax..Pathetic Marlins need his .180 bat to replace 0 for 20 Kotchman at 1B

Bring in the Clown

Lokking forward to seeing Lomo the Tool at 1st. Should be good for more comic relief.

Name That Gimp

Its time once again to play Name that Gimp. Coghlan,come on down ,youre the next contestant on Name That Gimp..

The Marlins are a much better ballclub then at the beginning of the year. Each rookie they brought up has excelled. Osuna leading the outfielder's in assists and batting 331. Dietrich hitting 5 meaningful homeruns, and getting on base in almost every game played and Ed Lucas(who should play 3rd base instead of Polanco or be a right handed platoon with Lomo) is batting a wonderful 379.
Whenever Stanton comes back the Marlins should play at least 500 ball. Watchout for a wonderful comeback!!!!
