Before this offseason, I was all but set to abandon my beloved Florida Marlins (from now on referred to as The Fish.) Another season of inexplicable mediocrity, untimely injuries, and WTF managing (I love me some Jack McKeon, but WTF) mixed with the complete identity change to the fabulously flamboyant Miami Marlins was more than enough to send me to the curb. Add in the fact that I am generally disintrested in baseball (NEEDS MOAR STEROIDS) and things were looking bleak for the following season, and I was all but ready to hand in my sabbatical papers. Then, almost over night, the Fish had me hooked.

The Daily Drive is a daily ( for the most part) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. Like that writing jokes can get hard. See?
-Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel wants more offense, and he wants it now. Meanwhile Jose Contreras has been placed on the DL and the Phillies take on the St Louis Cardinals tonight.
-The Philadelphia Flyers have traded Jeff Carter to the Columbus Blue Jackets, clearing up salary cap room so the team can overpay for a mediocre goaltender. Hey Flyers fans, remember when I said you’d be mortgaging the future? The Flyers did get the number 8 pick in the draft that’s being held on Friday. More of that in my Draft Preview tomorrow.
-Despite what you may have heard, Jose Reyes will not be a New York Yankee this season. Yankee fans breathe a sigh of relief. Derek Jeter blows his nose in Minka Kelly’s chest.
-NEWS FLASH! Derek Jeters impending 3,000th hit (one hit closer to retirement, and hopefully, obscurity folks) will be kind of a big deal.
