Dominican Team Falls Short, But Paulino Leads

Though the Dominican Republic couldn’t take the Caribbean Series, finishing with a 2-4 record, a Phillie did make some huge contributions in the process. New catcher Ronny Paulino had a fine series:

6 G / .381 AVG / 1.242 OPS / 3 R / 2 HR / 5 RBI / 3 BB / 3 SO

He led his Dominican team in all offensive categories.

Coming with this is news that the Florida Marlins are looking at Chris Coste. Indeed, I thought this would be the case, but don’t expect anything yet — the Phils want to get Paulino in camp and see how he stacks up. Something tells me he will be fine, putting Coste on the trading block before opening night.
