JUPITER -- Ozzie Guillen addressed the club in a 30-minute, closed-door speech this morning, after which the Marlins hit the back fields at Roger Dean Stadium for their first full-squad workout of spring training under a gray sky.
Jeffrey Loria spoke with reporters as he's done on this day in each of his 11 spring trainings as Marlins owner. I asked how long he intends to maintain ownership of the Marlins. His response: "As long as I live. I love this team"
Only newsworthy event of the first workout was Chris Coghlan being hit in his right elbow by a Jose Alvarez pitch during live batting practice. Coghlan ended his hitting session and was taken to the training room, but said later he should be OK.
