    Jose Fernandez has literally been the only bright spot for the Miami Marlins this season as they challenge the Astros for the #1 overall pick in the 2014 Draft.

    This is a guy who spent all of last season in Class A. Now, he's going to be the NL Rookie of the Year, and if it weren't for Clayton Kershaw, he might have won the Cy Young, too. Maybe even garner an MVP vote or two.

    He hit his first career home run tonight. What he did afterwards... didn't sit too well with Chris Johnson and Brian McCann.

    0:25: Fernandez spits in Johnson's direction
    0:34: McCann barks something at Fernandez
    0:40: Johnson rushes in, benches clear
    0:50-1:13: Johnson, while being restrained, continues to bark in Fernandez's direction
    1:15-1:17: Fernandez sporting a haters gonna hate look on his face
    1:26-1:46: Johnson still going nuts

    Dude is insanely good. It's too bad he's being shut down after today - he really is one of the best 2 or 3 pitchers in baseball this season. 12-6 on a Marlins teams that is 54-90.

    Even more amazing beyond his overall numbers are that he's improved his WHIP and K-rate in each of the 6 months of the season. Post ASB as a whole was 1.33 ERA and 0.79 WHIP before today, with 79 Ks in 61 innings.

    Former Astros representing, Chris Johnson and Chad Qualls, how is Qualls still in the league?

    So Johnson ran all the way from 3rd base looking for a fight, to then walk around the offender and stand behind the umpire and yell? WTF?

    I don't watch baseball, but how the **** was that disrespectful. That sport needs a money mayweather.

    Chad Qualls' ERA is 2.86. Their bullpen has been stellar, constituting the main difference between the Astros and Marlins. They have 4 RPs with a 3.00 or less ERA.

    Are baseball players the most sensitive little p*****s in the sports world? My vote is yes.

    Did I mention we drafted Springer 3 spots ahead of him? Hopefully Springer will be an all-star caliber player as well.

    There was more context for this than just him watching the HR. He was jawing earlier with other Braves.

    Yeah. I thought it started with the Gattis HR. Maybe took some offense to Gattis' initial reaction to the ball he absolutely crushed. Then him and CJ got into it. Next inning this stuff goes down.

    Baseball players in general get their panties in a wad over nothing, but absolutely no reason to spit in someone's direction.

    Still doesn't change the fact that baseball players have about the thinnest skin in the world. They act like 7-year-olds when some meanie hurts their feelings.

    And coming from the p***y franchise that just threw at Harper's head a few weeks ago, it makes me love my "Braves Suck" t-shirt even more. I haven't seen the video, but another message board indicated Brian McCann's last homer shows he doesn't mind admiring his a little too.
