If you haven't seen the video, check it out here. If you can't watch video, or don't feel like giving MLB the satisfaction they're looking for by not allowing their videos to be embedded into blog posts (/rant), here's a recap of what happened: In the second inning, Hanley Ramirez went after a bloop pop up into short left field. He was unable to make the catch, the ball landed at his feet, and he booted it into the left field corner. He then proceeded to chase it down. Slowly. Very, very slowly. It was a leisurely jog, really, after the ball while two Diamondbacks scored.
After the inning, coach Fredi Gonzalez pulled him from the game.
"We expect an effort from 25 guys on this team, when that doesn't happen, we've got to do something," Gonzalez said. "You guys call him a marquee guy," Gonzalez said of the player often referred to as the "Face of the Franchise." "I've got 25 guys all wearing the same uniform. All with the Marlins insignia on the front. If anybody did it, not just the one guy."
Hanley was replaced by Brian Barden, who managed to give full effort despite playing with a sprained ankle and making a fraction of the money Ramirez pulls in.
As you may expect, Marlins fans aren't thrilled. Head to SB Nation's Fish Stripes for reaction.
