As the Florida Marlins continue to slip further and further out of contention in the National League Wild Card chase, two of their stars are feuding.
A frustrated and injured Hanley Ramirez said Wednesday that he ``got some people upset'' for leaving the game early the night before with an injury, then teammate Dan Uggla openly argued with the NL batting leader in the clubhouse.
Uggla accused Ramirez for a lack of desire and effort to win. He also said Ramirez wasn't caring because he's already secured a $70 million, six-year contract.
Ramirez left the Marlins' 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves with a tight left hamstring. He was taken out of the lineup Wednesday about an hour before the game, and the team held a closed-door meeting.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com currently list the Marlins as 50/1 long shots to win the 2009 World Series. Florida’s NL Pennant odds are listed at 25/1.
