Well that was fun. Young guys getting it done, old guys getting it done.

The only reason I remember the Marlins last win was because it was on my birthday. That's sad

Edwin Rodriguez resigns as Florida's manager after this whole mess (and it's not his fault, it's the players faults). Classy though, because the writing was on the wall. He was bound to get axed sooner or later, even if it wasn't his fault.

Either way, the players loved him. And he was really, really soft on them apparently.

Out of the blue, Jack McKeon comes out of retirement and is named the Florida Marlins manager. Now, there's someone who will whip those boys into shape. I'm excited to see him back. Should be a fun(ny) season.

Do I still want Gardenhire's head on a platter?

Less so. Less so.


ETA: Suck it, KC!

The Phils can't hit lefties, sat Polanco and had Martinez and Francisco in the lineup. Both of those two are AA players at best. That game was over when Manuel handed in the lineup card.

You saying the Phillies can't hit lefties makes me laugh. Because the Mariners are ridiculously horrid vs. lefties (and only moderately horrid against righties), especially a lefty who would be the number one starter for roughly 20 teams. Most Mariners fans thought the Hamels game was over as soon as it was decided which he would be pitching.

ETA: I'd take either of your two AA players over Chone Figgins at this point. Pretty sure Atlanta fans would say the same about Uggla at this point as well.

And who won? My point is I'm not surprised at all that a pedestrian lefty puzzled that batting order. I'm not trying to compete for ineptitude or anything.

You can have Martinez or Francisco. Martinez is hanging on because the organization bizarrely views him as a potential Rollins replacement and can't demote him because he's Rule 5, despite the fact that he can't hit or field any position well. Francisco is a 0-tool player with a decently large contract that they'd be embarrassed to swallow. Leaving both of them on the roster also delays starting the service clock on the clearly superior John Mayberry, who's a fucking righty, the one thing they desperately need.

...so, I'm loving what Dustin Ackley is doing at the plate so far.

Hey the Marlins won another game this month! I'm good for another week or two, that means.
