Marlins' Webb runs in Rocky's footsteps

PHILADELPIA -- An indication that manager Ozzie Guillen’s problems haven’t been a distraction to the Marlins was the off-day exploits of a couple of relief pitchers.

On Tuesday, while Guillen was in Miami oding his mea culpa for his “I love Castro” comments, Steve Cishek and Ryan Webb went sightseeing.

The highlight of the day was Cishek filming Webb running up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art a la Rocky, while wearing an Abe Lincoln top hat.

“I hit every step,” Webb said. “We saw the Liberty Bell, then went to the gift store and got some hats. Then we went to see the Rocky statue, ran up the steps, looked at some art.”

The art was the Vincent Van Gogh exhibit that runs through May 6.

“It was very interesting. A lot of the same stuff. He liked to paint wheat fields, apparently,” Webb said.
