Frank Menechino Q&A: Marlins in 2014

During a 100-loss season in 2013, the Miami Marlins set records for offensive futility.

Rooting for Dan Haren

Dan Haren is considering retirement, and like the eccentric timing mechanism in his delivery, he’s stalling for a moment before following through. Not because he feels as though he can no longer compete or because he’s physically incapable of taking the mound, but for reasons beyond his control. After exercising his player option for the 2015 season, the 34-year-old right...
