McKeon Move Is 'Disappointing' to Marlins Reliever

MIAMI (AP) -- Manager Jack McKeon has the Florida Marlins winning
with the help of some unorthodox moves, and the latest one left
reliever Randy Choate miffed.

McKeon stopped by Choate's locker before Tuesday night's game to
discuss the matter, and they agreed to disagree.

Choate was surprised and unhappy to be lifted in the ninth
inning of Monday's game against the New York Mets with a count of
2-0 against Lucas Duda. It's the second time McKeon has yanked
Choate in the middle of an at-bat.

McKeon said he made the move because he thought Choate was out
of sync. Leo Nunez relieved Choate and earned a save by closing out
a 4-1 win.
