Florida Marlins' Randy Choate brings an array of quirkiness, by Clark Spencer (Miami Herald):

The nightly ritual begins for Randy Choate in the second inning when he drinks his first can of Red Bull, a popular energy drink. It continues in the fourth when he drains a second can. By the time he runs in from the bullpen to pitch in relief – typically to face the other team's best left-handed hitter in some critical late-inning spot – Choate is wild-eyed and overcaffeinated.

Marlins confident Sanabia can contribute, by Joe Frisaro (mlb.com):
Sanabia, 22, had to fight to get a real look from the Marlins. Keep in mind, he wasn't drafted by the club until the 32nd round of the 2006 Draft, so nothing has been handed to him. And after a particularly brutal 2007 season at the Class A level -- he went a combined 7-11 with a 5.03 ERA at short-season Jamestown and low Class A Greensboro -- he reportedly considered walking away from the game.  
Not a strong week from the beat writers. Step up your boilerplate game, fellas...
