They haven’t done much winning lately, but the Marlins sure are holding a lot of meetings.
Just days after owner Jeffrey Loria got the entire team together for a big pep talk Hanley Ramirez held a closed-door meeting for players only, with an unnamed “veteran player” telling Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post: “He said all the right things. I was impressed.”
Ramirez isn’t known for his vocal leadership, but explained that “sometimes there’s a time when you have too many things in your heart and you just want to say it.”
They went on to beat the Blue Jays, snapping a six-game losing streak, but the Marlins are just 3-15 dating back to June 3, dropping from 31-23 to 34-38.
