After blowing up at then Florida Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez last season, shortstop Hanley Ramirez, the face of the franchise, is showing signs of change this spring. Plus, A.J. Pierzynski gets a speeding ticket -- in full uniform.
Buster Olney writes that while few are expecting the new partnership between Ozzie Guillen and Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria to work out, there's a chance that the two men could end up getting along fine -- at least for a little while.
Fredi Gonzalez has already proved he has the power to punish his players, and in the case of Hanley Ramirez, the manager has done enough to prove where he stands, Buster writes. But now it's time to put Ramirez back in and get on with things.
