Part of our woes come from this man hitting the DL (and his lack of performance)
The Marlins have dropped seven straight games, dropping them five games behind the Phillies and now two behind the Atlanta Braves and it’s been agony to experience. Losing Josh Johnson was a problem, but we’ve even had great pitching performances from our starters (including one of his replacements) that the Fish have botched. The loss of Hanley Ramirez also doesn’t help things, although his presence has yet to really be felt at the plate. I’m hoping that this DL stint will fix whatever’s been ailing him.
My frustration with the Fish has reached an all-time high. This is a team that CAN reach the postseason, especially with just a little more help at the back of the rotation. The skid has got to end. Do it for me, Florida. Destroy Atlanta today, I just can’t bear another loss to Los Bravos.
