  1. I live in Atlanta now, grew up in WPB where I became a Marlins fan. I'm not the only Fish fan up here though. I always see a decent number of Marlins caps and jerseys when the team plays up here.
  2. I see Hermida earned himself some playing time today after that hit last night Based on the way Fredi manages, it probably just has to do with Hermida's splits against Moyer (although I don't know what they are). Johnson is 1-18 against Moyer, that's why he's sitting.
  3. I had to watch on WGN... and I'm really starting to hate Len Kasper. At least Boog Sciambi still shows a little respect to his former employer. No class at all from Len. I couldn't keep track of the number of times he took shots the organization, the fans, or the team. He and his partner even had the nerve to bitch about Nunez after Koiye Hill threw out his elbow running past first. I know this is nothing new with Len, but it just gets worse and worse, especially after games like tonight So that's what happened over there. Was wondering why Leo was glaring at him. Couldn't see the elbow from my angle. Chalk that up to retaliation for Leo's own antics at times. I'm not a fan of Leo's emotional outburst either, but if Hill didn't like it maybe he shouldn't have gone 0-6, and let his own game do the talking, instead of resorting to cheap shots.

  5. Hi, I'm Ross Gload. I'll take RF from here... Go Bulls, Ross
  6. Why not Russell Branyan? He's only signed to a 1 year deal at around 1.5 mil. The Mariners are probably in sell mode after their recent losing streak. Branyan would fit in well platooning with Bonifacio at 3B too--Boni vs. LHP and Branyan vs. RHP. He certainly fits the bill as a big bat...
  7. I'm playing El Son de la Negra on my computer right now in Cantu's honor.
  8. Since the first game in Pittsburgh, Hanley hit .391/.462/.565. Someone please find me how he's not on track yet. I think it has less to do with his numbers themselves and more to do with how many players are playing better than he is. No player played better than him over that skid on our team. Not a single one. I'm not talking about just our respective team, but across the league entirely. He's supposed to be one of the best 1-3 best players in the game and he's 93rd on the player rater and dropping. Is he playing terrible? No, but he isn't playing to his skill level neither. Jeez man, if he had an OPS over 1.0 the rest of the season I think we'd all be fine and dandy.
  9. And he had a key walk today in the ninth. From my perspective, it looks like most of the Marlins are at least being patient at the plate. For what it's worth as a team so far we're middle of the pack in the NL in walks, and near the top in strikeouts. BB/K Bonifacio 2/13 Hanley 4/9 Uggla 7/15 Ross 2/10 Hermy 10/8 Cantu 4/6 Maybin 4/14 Bake 4/8 Bench is actually 10/12 due to a freakish 7/0 by Ross Gload. The walks & strikeouts last season by Hermida were really baffling. Seems to be on the right track so far this season. The old scouting report on Hermida always credited him w/ a good eye, its nice to see him actually using it now. Cantu's early ratio (extra small sample size though, due to the hand injury) is an encouraging change too. Now we need to get Bonerface to stop swinging at anything high early in the count.
  10. "I was a Republican until they lost their minds," Barkley said. "The word 'conservative' means 'discriminatory,' practically. It's a form of political discrimination. What do the Republicans run on? Against gay marriage and for a war that makes no sense. A war that was based on faulty intelligence. That's all they ever talk about. That and immigration. Another discriminatory argument for political gain." :mischief2 Really now Accord, how much of an idiot could a guy like this be? *For the record, I don't even really like CB bar the random funny quote here and there, but I hardly think criticizing today's Republican party makes someone an idiot.
  11. I thought all three were writers for the show? You might be right though. Anyway tonight's episode (the miracle one) was hillarious. Up there with the welfare episode for the best this season. LOL they're really pushing the limits with their material now and it's great!
  12. Come on Bob! You gotta put something exctiing in a GT! Here I'll give you a hand: Bob Dole doesn't make exciting game threads because Bob Dole comes from the old Bob Dole school of Bob Dole simplicity. :Ahem: Sorry. But come on Fish! This is the last game I get to see before I have to leave the country for three weeks! Win one for the Jaker!
