What’s Rob Reading?

Miami Marlins bottom feeders

“How did that instantly become a T-shirt? Inside baseball’s moment-based merchandise boom”
By Hannah Keyser, Yahoo! Sports

“For the most triumphant moment of the Miami Marlins’ 2020 season, the team wore matching black T-shirts with red and turquoise writing that said “MIAMI BOTTOM FEEDERS.” They had just swept the Chicago Cubs in the best-of-three wild-card series that was tacked on to create an expanded postseason field this year. … When they reemerged on the field, everyone — including manager Don Mattingly and the coaching staff — was wearing the same $28 T-shirt that’s widely available for purchase. That was where their playoff run peaked, but at least they did it in style.”
