Frugal Sports Quote: Cheap & Good Marlins

I like French manicures, but I also like sports. With that in mind, I offer The Frugal Sports Quote. Sportswriter Dan LeBatard has a great quote about cheap money and the Florida Marlins in today’s Miami Herald.

Summary: Cheap Baeball Team makes History

The Setup: The Florida Marlins baseball team – with the lowest payroll in Major League Baseball - is performing amazingly well in a race for a playoff spot. Last night, the Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 4 to 3, in a great 10 inning game.

Dan LeBatard — newspaper columnist, and broadcast personality — has written a spirited recap of the game.

The Quote: “We interrupt this column…to point out how unfathomable it is that the youngest team in baseball history and the cheapest team in baseball this year is playing meaningful games in September.”

The Bottom Line: The Marlins are a great baseball bargain.
