Anibal Sanchez's grievance continues forward.
''The Marlins are essentially questioning his integrity. That's disappointing,'' Lozano said. The Marlins hope Sanchez will return from shoulder surgery by spring training, or soon after. Lozano indicated he's ``ahead of schedule.''
You already know where I stand on this. If the pitching coach couldn't see he was injured he should have been dismissed. Oh wait...he was. Of course, that wasn't the reason given for letting Kranitz go and it probably had nothing to do with the Marlins sending him packing. But it should have factored into the decision somewhere, along with the awful Dontrelle experiment.
The article went on to say this:
It is very true that the Marlins need some veteran leadership and Boone's injury was a problem for this year's team in terms of losing veteran leadership. However, when a coach from an opposing team team says the Marlins lack discipline, it could mean several things. And given what he is probably privy to, it more than likely he is speaking of defensive blunders, swinging at bad pitches and stupid base running mistakes.
Then again, maybe the team needs the reins tightened.
