8270848

Hard work never hurt nobody. Jose Fernandez is determined to put that to the test and also to show that his rookie season was no fluke. After all, the Marlins have had phenomenal rookie pitchers before - nothing like Dontrelle Willis who not only went on to win the ROY for the NL in 2003 but also challenge for the Cy Young Award in 2005 (finishing 2nd) only to be traded in … [Read more...]
