It’s back! Spring training has arrived and so have the Miami Marlins. Pitchers and catchers reported to Rodger Dean Stadium Wednesday for workouts with an attitude they hope will carry them throughout the next few weeks.
"You need to go out there and compete, because even if you think your spot is saved, it's not. You have to give it the best you have out there," said Jose Urena, Marlins pitcher.
"Everyone's counting us out, you might as well put a chip on your shoulder and try to prove everyone wrong," said Brandon Kintzler, Marlins closer. "With a team this young and talented - it has nothing to lose. When you start to believe it can be a very dangerous team."
The Marlins will face the Mets in their first spring training game on February 22nd in Port Saint Lucie.
