|MIAMI: MIAMI (AP) - The owner of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox is apparently unimpressed by the Miami Marlins' attempts to improve their feeble offense.|
''They should apologize for their regular season lineup,'' John Henry tweeted during spring training.
In 2013 the Marlins were truly sorry. They finished last in the majors in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, runs and home runs, and scored even less than their woeful 1993 expansion team. They also lost 100 games, two more than in their first season.
Henry was being catty after the Red Sox drew criticism for the minor league lineup they fielded for a spring game against Miami. But he might be right - it's unclear whether an offseason shakeup of the lineup will mean more runs for the Marlins than last year.
''We were anemic offensively,'' new general manager Dan Jennings said. ''Just bad. It's unacceptable.''
|PHILADELPHIA: PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ryan Howard and his teammates have heard critics say the window has closed for the Philadelphia Phillies.|
They just don't believe it.
After a dominant run that included five straight NL East titles, two pennants and the 2008 World Series championship, the Phillies have missed the postseason two consecutive years. They have an aging core of players who've been declining.
Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Ruiz are the remaining regulars from the group that led Philadelphia to its best era of baseball from 2007-11 under former manager Charlie Manuel.
They're determined to make another run.
''We've had a bad couple years and had injuries and all that stuff, but I don't think it's over,'' Howard said. ''People are entitled to their opinions and that's fine, but it's up to us to go out there and show them otherwise and go out and play our game and do what we do.''
General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. refused to start the rebuilding process after the Phillies' first losing season since 2002. Instead, he re-signed Utley and Ruiz and added veteran outfielder Marlon Byrd and right-hander A.J. Burnett in free agency.
If the older players live up to their hefty contracts and younger guys like 2013 All-Star Domonic Brown, Cody Asche and Ben Revere continue to develop, the Phillies should be in contention.
''I think we're positive. We're expecting to win and plan on doing everything we can to ensure that,'' ace lefty Cliff Lee said.

*Marlins-Phillies Preview* ==========================
By JEFF MEZYDLO STATS Senior Writer
Miami (38-39) at Philadelphia (35-41), 7:05 p.m. EDT
Despite throwing the ball very well this season, Cole Hamels continues to grow frustrated with his lack of victories.
After three straight starts without one, the left-hander hopes for a better result when the Philadelphia Phillies try to split their four-game home set with the Miami Marlins on Thursday night.
Hamels (2-4, 2.76 ERA) allowed one earned run while going 1-0 with a 0.30 ERA in four starts before his 24 2-3 scoreless-inning stretch ended Saturday when he yielded three runs - two earned - while walking five in 7 1-3 innings of a 4-1 loss at St. Louis. Philadelphia (35-42) has scored two runs with him on the mound during a three-start stretch where he's gone 0-1 with a 0.81 ERA.
That's perhaps a reason Hamels declined to speak to reporters after his last outing.
"Anyone would be frustrated pitching the way he has pitched and having little to show for it," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg told MLB's official website. "It starts with getting some run support, play defense and when a guy is pitching like that, have something to show for it."
Sandberg continues to praise Hamels for his ability to put his team in position to win during the veteran's season that was delayed until April 23 because of biceps tendinitis.
"He knows how to rise to the occasion, he has that type of stuff," Sandberg said.
Hamels has allowed one earned run and struck out 19 over 15 innings while not factoring in the decision of his last two starts at Citizens Bank Park. His teammates have scored two runs with him on the mound in those contests.
Though Hamels is only 3-2 in his last eight against the Marlins, he's posted a 1.93 ERA during that stretch. He gave up three runs in seven innings before leaving without a decision in a 4-3 defeat at Miami on May 22.
After snapping a three-game slide with Tuesday's 7-4 victory over the Marlins (39-39), the Phillies fell 3-2 on Wednesday. Jarrod Saltalamacchia's two-run double capped a three-run fourth for Miami, which last won a series at Philadelphia in June 2012.
With two hits Wednesday, Miami's Casey McGehee is batting .409 (9 for 22) in the last five games at Philadelphia.
Teammate Giancarlo Stanton is 7 for 15 in his last four versus Philadelphia after going 0 for 11 in his previous three. Half of his 10 hits in 38 at-bats against Hamels have gone for extra bases, including two home runs. He's also struck out 16 times in those matchups.
Miami's Tom Koehler (5-6, 3.74) allowed nine runs in 11 1-3 innings while not factoring in the decision of his previous two starts before he gave up two and matched a career high with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a 4-0 loss to the New York Mets on Saturday.
In his lone start against the Phillies, the right-hander gave up five runs and two homers in five innings of a 7-2 loss.
Domonic Brown is 3 for 4 against Koehler and hit one of those home runs, but is 1 for 11 in his last four games versus Miami.
Jimmy Rollins, meanwhile, is batting .447 during his last 10 home contests against the Marlins.
