Twice this season Florida Marlins players have returned to their cars in the parking lot at the Fort Lauderdale Airport Jet Center to find missing rims. Infielder Damion Easley had all four wheels taken from his BMW SUV, and Luis Castillo likewise had four pilfered from his BMW sedan. Easley says the problem is that "anyone can walk in and have access." Pitcher Tommy Phelps lost a set earlier this year, and after that incident Easley and Castillo found that their lugs had been loosened. Easley valued his rims at about $1,000, which begs the question, where can you get four decent rims for only a grand these days? Pep Boys?
