FISH STORY: MLB Network’s Kevin Millar said “The Franchise” is stopping a week early "because the Marlins stink.” Millar: “Hadn’t been the kind of season the Marlins thought. They have all of these casts of characters they signed in the offseason and they said, ‘No, no, we're done.’ This is part of that distraction scene. It's not the production. MLB Production does a great job with this, believe me. But when you lose them, it turns into a distraction" (“Intentional Talk,” MLB Network, 8/20). The N.Y. Daily News' Bob Raissman said, "This series started out with promise, with Ozzie Guillen with the Castro comments and it looked like it would be a good rolling series, but now Ozzie lost his shot at getting an Emmy. But then again, who would want to listen to his Emmy acceptance speech?” (“Daily News Live,” SportsNet N.Y., 8/20).
