All MLB teams go through rough patches throughout the season. It happens. However, some teams get cold at horrible times. For example, everyone remembers how the Boston Red Sox choked their season away, and cost Terry Francona his job, in September of 2011. That instance is very extreme compared to the 2016 Miami Marlins, a team that lacks playoff experience. After failing to take...
Giancarlo Stanton is out for the season with a groin injury, Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly announced on Sunday.
