From Last Night:

  • Chapman gives up 2 HR in the 9th to Katz and Galvis and blows it in Philly
  • Moore twirls 7 innings of 1 run ball, gets help from a Joyce homerun that was reviewed for 9 minutes to win 3-1
  • Locke and Harrell duel to a 1-0 Pirates victory
  • Ozuna backs Nolasco’s 11 Ks to take one from Arizona
  • The Indians rough up Felix, Masterson Ks 11 in 7 innings for a 6-0 win

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Under the radar Iwakuma tries to salvage one in Cleveland (12p Eastern)
  • Odorizzi makes his Rays debut against Dickey and the Jays (1p Eastern)
  • Cueto returns versus the Mets (7p Eastern)
  • Lester faces the White Sox (8p Eastern)
  • Kershaw comes to Milwaukee after dominating his last time out (8p Eastern)
  • Corbin on the mound in Colorado (830p Eastern)
  • Shelby Miller heads to Petco (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • How will you divide up your MLB viewing today?

The Marlins are just above the Tigers 43-119 pace from 2003 and are currently tracking toward 44 wins. Their team slash line is an incredible .221/.284/.317. In 2012, four players hit between .220 and .230 and slugged between .310 and .320. Here’s the list: Peter Bourjos (195 PA), Anthony Gose (189 PA), Jose Lobaton (197 PA), and Carlos Triunfel (24 PA). Put it this way, the Marlins as a team are hitting like four players who couldn’t get 200 PA on another team. The average Miami Marlin couldn’t even platoon in the majors. The 2013 Marlins are worse than Don Kelly’s career line, who has made a career being a defense first 13th man who can play many positions. The Marlins are fielding a team that is below replacement level (-1.6 WAR). That’s happening.
