Gregg, Lindstrom, Owens.. I'd love to know another major league team that added three arms as good as these in the offseason. The julio thing is done.. get it out of your head because adding 3 arms that are as important to our pen as he did is quite amazing.... especially at the price.

I just cant say enough about how much I am in love with this bullpen. Two top quality lefties and a bunch of other guys who can bring the gas.

Very nice job tonight, we didn't give up when we were down early and our superstar Cabrera sparks the comeback.

Results are doing the talking for Beinfest and the Marlins FO baseball people. That's all I have to say

I love these "final thought" threads. Anyway, great job by Olsen minus the two
homeruns, Cabs came up big as usual, awesome job by the bullpen today.


Until next time... take care of yourselves, and each other.... or something like
that.

what is getting me really pissed is how terrible the pitches are that olivo is swinging at and he is a much better hitter than that...plus hes using such a small glove to catch and u can tell by how many balls he drops...even treanor uses a much bigger glove

Yup, although I thought we would have a nice bullpen, I didn't really see what the bullpen has done so far coming. Best collection of relief arms Beinfest has ever put together. Yes I know that isn't saying much considering how bad the bullpen has been the last 3 years but you know what I mean.

I like the fact that Olsen went out there and out dueled Hamels. He is going out there and giving us quality starts, and the offense is waking up. Hermida K'ed 3 of 4 times though :confused

No offense, but your overall perception of Olivo's game is completely off.

- Can we end the Reggie Abercrombie Leadoff Experiment tonight?
- The Marlins come from behind to win late in the game once again, something that has been rare at times in seasons recently past and a definite welcome sight.
- Olsen shows increased maturity on the mound, also a welcome sight.
- Was great seeing Wood, the career minor leaguer finally getting a shot to stick on a club, bring home the winning runs with that double in the 6th.
- How much of a steal is that Gregg for Resop deal turning out to be? Not to mention Vargas/Bostick for Lindstrom/Owens...?
- Lindstrom's slider seems to really be coming along. If he can work that in with that 98 mph fastball effectively from here on out he is going to be nasty.
- Gregg probably cemented himself as our closer tonight, Owens healthy or no.

Agreed, that man looks like he's playing golf out there.

Good win, indeed. If we don't face Moyer, we should have a shot at the sweep...

I dont hate him at all.

But you shouldnt be surprised a guy that refuses to take a walk, strikes out a ton, and swings at the first pitch in the majority of his at bats is struggling.

He got lucky enough to have a few drop last year. That was the exception and not the norm. Its very probable that this is exactly the hitter Olivo is capable of being.

Stating what is quite possibly fact is not "hating" at all.

Keep Reggie/Alf in the leadoff spot

Keep Olivo at the 7 hole

and seriously, shut up Spike, WE KNOW YOU DON'T LIKE HIM.
