Even in the Sunshine State, things can get stormy really fast.
After losing 19 of 20 in June and 11 in a row overall, Florida Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison ripped shortstop Hanley Ramirez on Monday for his excessive tardiness, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Morrison reportedly addressed Ramirez for repeatedly arriving just minutes before the team stretch begins. He scolded the three-time All-Star and blamed the tardiness as the reason for Ramirez's season-long slump.
According to the report, Ramirez waited for Morrison to leave before reacting and yelling at no one in particular.
The incident occurred on the same day in which new manager Jack McKeon benched Ramirez in his first day on the job.
After playing over .500 ball for the first two months of the season, the Florida Marlins have struggled mightily recently, which led to the resignation of former-manager Edwin Rodriguez.
