Adam Greenberg’s comeback is emerging as baseball’s feel-good story of the year, but that’s all kind of lost on Marlins skipper Ozzie Guillen whose team is giving the 31-year-old another chance at an at-bat after his only other plate appearance ended with a first-pitch beanball to the head in 2005 while on the Cubs.
“All I know is they asked me if a Jewish kid with headaches could play Tuesday,” said Guillen. “I said yes because what do I care? This [expletive deleted] season ended in July for us anyway.”
Added Guillen: “I don’t know who this kid is anyway. I think he’s the owner’s son or something.”
