With the outpouring of condolences and thoughts from across the NFL it is clear that Coach Sparano was incredibly beloved by his players. Dolphins fans may remember the exuberant celebrations over field goals, but Sparano (along with the Wildcat) helped breathe life into a dormant franchise and earn the AFC East crown in 2008. Sparano inherited a dumpster fire left behind by Cam Cameron and finally, albeit for one season, the Miami Dolphins were the talk of the league for the right reason.

The Marlins looked to complete a sweep of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Sunday and everything looked great… until it didn’t.

SB Nation’s Marlins blog Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) recapped a tough loss for the Marlins to end their series with Tampa Bay. Despite the loss, the Marlins took the series on the road to open the second half and have been playing very competitive and exciting baseball of late.

In the second half of the season, look for the Marlins to promote young prospects to the big club from the Triple-A ranks, as Fish Stripes reports here.
