Jeter’s style, by contrast, is to dictate terms and expect you to glumly accept them.

My biggest wish for 2019 is a NL MVP award for Ozuna.

long rosenthal piece in the athletic this week about how gary denbo, jetes' buddy/director of player development is a colossal asshole whom everyone hates

He​ wanted​ the dogs​ out of the clubhouse. No,​ it​ was​ worse​ than​ that. Gary​ Denbo,​ the​ Marlins’​​ vice president of player development and scouting, could not tolerate the dogs, who had been a popular part of the Greensboro Grasshoppers’ scene since August 2006, fetching bats, carrying buckets of balls to the plate umpire, running the bases after every game.

The dogs are such a phenomenon that the bucket of the late Miss Babe Ruth, a Labrador Retriever who once worked 638 consecutive home games, is on display at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. But Denbo, making an unannounced visit to the Marlins’ Low-A affiliate in June 2018, was not interested in upholding tradition. He took one look at the two dog kennels in the clubhouse and demanded that they be removed, berating a clubhouse attendant, a longtime employee of the team who is in his 50s.

The exchange was the breaking point in the Marlins’ 16-year relationship with Greensboro, according to the team’s president and general manager, Donald Moore, who said he simply could not work with Denbo. Moore subsequently made a deal with the Pirates’ organization, and the Marlins settled for a much less advantageous affiliation in Clinton, Iowa, where the ballpark is considered outdated and remote.

The Marlins are scoring 2.69 runs per game. That puts them on pace for 434 -- 75 fewer runs than the 2010 Mariners… And this is during the juiced ball era.

The Marlins have one -- one! -- player with an OPS above league average.

Their best player is 4 for May

Did I mention that it’s been a full week since the last Marlins position player drove in a run, or 11 days since one of their players homered? Or that it’s the team’s only homer this month, hit by a 29-year-old rookie named Jon Berti? I kid you not.
