We’re one game into the season and there already appears to be drama in the Marlins’ clubhouse.
Here’s the situation: Miami shortstop Jazz Chisholm Jr. — considered to be one of the team’s best young player — hit a clutch home run in the ninth inning on Friday, giving the Marlins a one-run lead they’d eventually squander. After rounding the bases, Chisholm did a euro step before touching home plate (video above).
On Saturday, Chisholm was not in the Miami lineup. This led to some interesting behavior on Twitter from the 24-year-old, who made his displeasure known by retweeting and liking a series of tweets that criticized the decision.
For the sake of fairness, it should be noted that the Giants have left-hander Carlos Rodon on the hill. Chisholm is a left-handed batter, and has a .694 career OPS against lefties as opposed to a .731 OPS vs. righties. Miguel Rojas, who took Chisholm’s place in the lineup, has a .749 career OPS vs. lefties.
