Jose Fernandez' dead boating friends suing his family for FOUR MILLION DOLLARS

What happens if one of the Jose Fernandez boaters is charged with manslaughter? That's what we asked last September.

Craig Carton? He "hated that they had to come out with 'all that other stuff.'" Boomer Esiason on Fernandez out late before heading to the boat at the time? "Of course he was, he's a kid."

And then? Word that the Marlins hero was drunk & with cocaine in him when he died.

You know what's happening now -- Lawsuit:

Attorney Christopher Royer, who is representing the two families, told the Sun Sentinel that the claim for 25-year-old Eduardo Rivero was filed Friday and the claim for 27-year-old Emilio Jesus Macias will be filed Monday. Each family is seeking $2 million.

Authorities say Fernandez had cocaine and alcohol in his system at the time of the September crash, though it's not clear whether Fernandez was driving.

The attorney representing Fernandez's family, Ralph Fernandez, told the Sun Sentinel that a settlement is "highly unlikely," saying the official crash investigation has not been completed, but he expects it to find Jose Fernandez was not driving the boat when it crashed.

Also Friday, the Marlins announced plans to honor Fernandez with a commemorative No. 16 patch on the front left side of their jerseys, above the heart, this season.

We suggest a nose.
