This is sweet as all get-out.

The Rockies are in Philly this week, and at some point first-base coach Rene Lachemann handed a ball to a kid in the stands. But first, he had some life lessons to impart. Take the trash out. Clean your room. Listen to your parents. Don't get a cell phone. Eat your vegetables. Don't pee on the toilet seat.

All the same things Lachemann must've told those expansion Marlins.

Update: Turns out this is from last month. Whatever. New to me, and still great advice.
