The Winter Olympics are currently in progress and the Marlins have, in camp, a connection to the international contest. Alright, it's not a connection to the winter games but it's the Olympics nonetheless.
The Palm Beach Post rounded up Mike and asked about his thoughts on the Olympics.
Mike reported to camp with the pitchers and the catchers but on the first day he spent much of his time with the training staff and can look forward to placing his foot in the tube.
Hopefully it is just a precautionary measure and he will get every chance to compete for a spot on the roster.
Unfortunately, time in the trainer's room is not a new experience to Mike.
I'm guessing he didn't finish first in his class at Craig Biggio's Getting Plunked Academy. But he was definitely in attendance for the, getting in the way of the pitch, lesson.
