This is surely the most unusual news of the offseason. As with Mark McGwire, we don’t need these pointless reminders of baseball tainted past. You can’t tell me that there is not someone just as good at mentoring Major League hitters.
Even with two World Series Championships the Miami Marlins were already a joke of a franchise, and this move is the newest example of that.
