Tino Martinez: ‘Marlins Are Very Soft’

MartinezThis is shaping up to look like just another dismal campaign for the Miami Marlins. Tino Martinez has resigned as their hitting coach for 2014 and is already disappointed with his team’s performance.

“I was tough on some of the young players I thought needed to be, not disciplined, but they were walking around like they were 10-year veterans and I was trying to teach them the right way to do things” a frustrated Martinez said.

“They were not taking advantage of their opportunity and it was bothering me that they weren’t working hard enough and weren’t appreciating what they had. They were very soft and that was the disappointing part, but I thought I was doing my job as a coach to try and get the most out of them.”
