Come Fall In Love With Christian Yelich’s Potential

We don’t really know what to make of hitting coaches, but we know what to make of hitters, and we know what to make of Barry Bonds, so Bonds linking up with the Marlins is at least greatly intriguing.

Don Mattingly won’t allow Marlins players to wear facial hair

Absurd old-school baseball traditionalism strikes again. According to the AP, Marlins manager Don Mattingly has banned his players from wearing facial hair because, I don’t know, maybe beards get in the way of your swing or something?
