Actually Dim, with the bullpen settling in, the rotation regaining Cosart and Alvarez, and the second base situation under control for the moment, things are looking better for us to be in this race and stay competitive now more than ever...

I've said this before and I'll say it again. Bryan Morris, as unlikely as it sounds, saved our season. Without the Bryan Morris trade, I highly doubt we're anywhere near this race right now. It's absolutely nuts to think that the trade every fan and every baseball critic trashed at the time the Marlins made it, could end up being the trade that keeps the team in the race into mid August.

Baseball can be funny, and that's exactly why we all love it.

I didn't trash that trade, FYI. I was trashed for liking it. And idk if he saved the season, but he helped save the bullpen. There's plenty of time left for Morris to suck in Miami, we have many more years of Morris to come. But for now, I will enjoy being right about the now.

He saved the season. He solidified the bullpen. When he found his role in that 8th inning and Gregg went away, the rest of the bullpen took shape around him. The team finally found how to properly utilize AJ Ramos and Mike Dunn to the best of their abilities. Hatcher and Dyson have done a hell of a job in middle relief to take the burden off some of the starters who have had to fill in over the past few weeks. And Cishek, despite his struggles as of late, is still a very very good closer and is getting more chances to close out games with Morris getting the job done in the 8th inning.

I'm not saying Morris did it alone, but without the Morris trade this team would be far worse than 1 game under .500. Morris' impact this year goes far beyond WAR.

Well guys, ESPN ran a story about the Marlins, so expect a 10 game losing streak incoming.
