[editor's note, by wiggins] - More from Craig. Hopefully we can get this issue resolved - but if not we'll be presenting things like this all week. Try not to get confused, eh?
When the Marlins script a lineup they literally script a lineup.
Bench coach Gary Tuck might have the most stylish handwriting of anyone on the team. Tuck wrote the opening-day lineup the way he did all spring and the way he will the rest of the season -- in calligraphy.
"...I've always written that way. It pumps the kids up, too. They like it. It makes them feel special."
I have read several newspaper articles where in it, they mention that some of the rookies had lineup cards hanging in their lockers. I never understood the appeal of that being a collectible but now I do.
