|Oh, Hanley. What would Ben Stein say?|
The Wall Street Journal scoured the media guides of all 30 MLB teams today and ranked the clubs based on their book-learnin'. The Fish ended up somewhere between Ferris Bueller and Jeff Spicoli on the academic achievement charts.
The Journal's list looked at how many players on each team went to four-year universities and how many ended up with degrees. The Marlins tied for 28th -- that's third-to-last, in case your math skills are on par with the Fish.
Of course the top team in the rankings, those damn stuck-up Oakland A's (whose roster includes reliever Craig Breslow, a Yale grad with molecular biophysics and biochemistry degrees) are also sitting in last place in the real-life standings.
