Take Mike Stanton, for example, a rookie whos come out this season and made a lot of noise with both his bat and fielding prowess. Theres also pitcher Josh Johnson, whos quietly making history with his 1.80 ERA and streak of runless games. Then theres Hanley Ramirez, an established superstar with the potential to become the best ballplayer in the bigs. The Fish might be near the bottom of the NL East standings, and their owner might be a major-league jackass, but still, our other big three is pretty special. OK, not Wade/James/Bosh special. But still special. The Fish will meet the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday at Sun Life Stadium (2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens). The game begins at 7:10 p.m., and tickets start at $9.
