Tino Martinez resigns as Miami Marlins hitting coach amid verbal abuse reports

Former Major League Baseball player Tino Martinez was known to be one who thrived on pressure.

During his career with Seattle, the Yankees twice, St. Louis and Tampa Bay, who would always come up with clutch hits.

His career stats showed he had a nice career hitting .271 with 339 homers and 1,271 RBI’s.

Martinez was named the hitting coach for the Miami Marlins for the 2013 season, replacing Eduardo Perez.

Apparently as the hitting coach of the Marlins, Martinez could not handle the pressure of working with and helping young players on a losing team.

Martinez resigned his position just hours after complaints by players about him verbally abusing them became public.

The allegations included him physically abusing Derek Dietrich several months before the resignation. Martinez’s behavior in the clubhouse was reported to also include verbal attacks towards other Marlins’ players, Justin Ruggiano and Chris Valaika and minor leaguer Matt Downs.

Martinez was in his first season as an MLB coach.

The Blues simply have the Blue Jackets number

COLUMBUS, O. — The theme of the Columbus Blue Jackets thus far this season is S-L-O-W  S-T-A-R-T-S and head coach Todd Richards blasted the team earlier in the week in a loss at Minnesota.

So in Thursday’s home game against Central Division rival St. Louis, you’d expect a great game from the team against a hated rival?

The team did the opposite, again!

After playing well for the first three shifts of the game, the Blue Jackets found themselves trailing again 1-0 at the 2:19 mark as Blues defenseman Barret Jackman used screens by his teammates to float a puck past goalie Sergei Bobrovsky from the blueline.

St. Louis was not done yet.

Center Patrik Berglund scored at 10:23 on a power-play goal for a 2-0 advantage and Bobrovsky’s night was done when rookie right winger Vladimir Tarasenko scored a goal while falling backwards after running into CBJ defenseman James Wisniewski. An upset Richards had seen enough, as he put it in the postgame, “Sergei has to get better and I wanted to shock the team by switching goaltenders.”

Entering the game was Steve Mason, who the fans are lukewarm with due to his past failures, but on this night, he was a hero playing solid and confident stopping all 13 shots by the Blues.

The fourth goal by the Blues was scored by right winger David Backes, an empty-netter with 21 seconds to go.

Derick Brassard scored the Blue Jackets only goal

CBJ center Derick Brassard scored the lone CBJ goal on a power-play at 16;51 of the second period to make the score 3-1. The team could not get anything else past goalie Brian Elliott who always seems to beat Columbus as a backup goaltender.

The game had a common thread, the Blue Jackets lost to the Blues again, going 8-2 in the last 10, 5-2-0 at Nationwide Arena, 5-2-0 in the past 7 in Columbus and overall 31-25-13.

The game had several fights which are common in division games with several players getting game misconducts, Jared Boll of Columbus and Ryan Reaves of St. Louis.

Barret Jackman, one of the Blues' leaders got the team off to a good start on Thursday night

The crowd of 11,155 fans went left the arena unhappy again with the Blue Jackets dropping another home game.

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM STARS OF THE GAME:

*Barret Jackman, D, Blues: Got his team off to a good start in a road contest early.

*Brian Elliott, G, Blues: Survived on 25 shots allowing only one goal, but the CBJ kept him undersieged.

*Steve Mason, G, Blue Jackets: Looked quick in goal and confident. The only real bright spot from the game for the home team.

Chicago White Sox 1B/DH Adam Dunn’s 40-homer season during the 2012 season, allowed him to become just the sixth player in major league history to belt 40 or more homers in a season in the National League and the American League.

In the N.L., the 33-year-old hit 40-plus homers in a season four times for the Cincinnati Reds (2004-2007) and 40 homers playing for the Reds and Arizona in 2008.

The five players who accomplished the feat before Dunn includes: Darrell Evans with Atlanta and Detroit, Shawn Green with Toronto and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ken Griffey, Jr. with Seattle and the Reds, Mark McGwire with Oakland and St. Louis and Jim Thome with Cleveland, Philadelphia and the Chicago White Sox.

Dunn is a 2-time All-Star, 2002 with the Reds and 2012 with the White Sox. He has 406 career homers and 1,018 RBI’s.

Dunn has also played for the Washington Nationals.

Reds manager Dusty Baker suffered a mini-stroke last week in Chicago; will return for St. Louis series

It has been discovered that Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker suffered a mini-stroke last Friday while the team was in Chicago. That ailment was on top of the irregular heartbeat that put him into the hospital two days earlier to get checked out.

The 63-year-old former outfielder returned to Cincinnati on Sunday after being released from a Chicago hospital. He spoke to the team on Tuesday night before their 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Bench coach Chris Speier is running the team in Baker’s absence.

Baker is under the care of a neurologist and a pair of cardiologists.

The timetable for Baker’s return to the bench is for the final three games of the regular season against the Cardinals in St. Louis on October 1-3.

The Reds have already wrapped up the National League Central Division championship and are readying themselves for the upcoming playoffs.

THE CINCINNATI REDS ISSUED A STATEMENT FROM DUSTY BAKER:

While in Chicago on Wednesday, Reds manager Dusty Baker was admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, commonly referred to as an irregular heartbeat. As he was being discharged on Friday, he suffered a mini-stroke and immediately was treated by the hospital’s stroke team, which minimized the effects of the stroke.

Dusty returned to Cincinnati on Sunday, and his condition has improved dramatically. His Cincinnati neurologist, Dr. Joseph Broderick, and cardiologists, Dr. Dean Kereiakes and Dr. Daniel Beyerbach, expect Dusty to make a full recovery and return to the dugout, possibly as soon as the season’s final series next week in St. Louis.

Dusty said, “While at Wrigley Field I was blessed to have our trainer, Paul Lessard, have the good sense to call in Cubs team physician Dr. Stephen Adams, who examined me in the clubhouse, immediately determined how serious by condition was and personally rushed me to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Dr. Broderick and Dr. Kereiakes are going to make sure I’m ready to handle the duties of managing before I return full time. My family and I are very grateful for the support we’ve received the past few days from Mr. Castellini and our ownership group, Walt, our friends, the baseball family and especially Reds fans. I’m feeling much better, and it’s great being back here in Cincinnati. Chris Speier and my staff are doing a terrific job, and I look forward to getting back to the dugout.”

Slumping Bruce getting a couple days off by Dusty Baker

 

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker saw his rightfielder Jay Bruce have a tough night on Thursday at the plate against the Chicago Cubs and decided a change was needed.

Bruce hit .213 in July and has not done any better by batting .200 in August. He’s hitless in his last 12 at-bats with seven strikeouts. And that means Baker will give him a rest for the next two days.

Xavier Paul started in rightfield on Friday with Justin Germano pitching. With Travis Wood, a lefty throwing on Saturday, Chris Heisey should get the start.

Even with Bruce in a slump and the Reds star player, Joey Votto out of the lineup since July 16 with a knee injury, the team is still controlling the National League’s Central Division by 2.5 over Pittsburgh and 4 games over St. Louis.
