    Jeffrey Loria, Dan Jennings

    Naming your GM — who hasn’t coached baseball since running a high school team in the mid-1980s — is unconventional. Not considering minority candidates is violative of the Selig Rule. But then again, these are the Marlins, and they do what they want.

  7. Another great idea on breathing life into retired numbers

    Omar Vizquel

    Omar Vizquel wore Luis Aparicio’s number. Why can’t someone else — someone deemed worthy — wear the retired number of someone else?

  8. Justin Masterson placed on the disabled list

    Justin Masterson Red Sox

    They’re calling it shoulder tendinitis, which is Latin for “dude can’t pitch at all right now.”

  9. “It’s boring. It is. Baseball is boring.”

    Puig Bat Flip

    Corey Kluber

    Your mid-50s-year-old drunk uncle who peaked during Reagan’s first term and has hated everything since has some questions about Corey Kluber’s toughness.
