FishStripes can confirm, from sources much more reliable than any team official or beat writer (Twitter), that every Fish fans' favorite middle reliever, Burke Badenhop, is headed back to Miami.
@PSIathleticsKris Braunjust got off the phone with Badenhop...he's officially free! #FreeTheHopper
After Friday night's loss to the Nats, it was reported that Clay Hensley is headed to the DL, and the Marlins will recall B-Hop from AAA New Orleans, where he has been unjustly detained for 35 days.
Who knew that pushing a reliever down the stairs was all that was necessary to ensure a successful #FreeTheHopper campaign? We could've taken care of this on the Marlins' first road trip.*
*Despite repeated questioning from the Cincinnati PD, I have a semi-solid alibi for the night of the alleged accident in the stairwell. I maintain my innocence. (And I totally would've pushed Javy.)
