Now this was a game that had everything.

You had the 300 game winner in Greg Maddux

You had the Marlins best pitcher out there (even if he has struggled this year). He looked great most of the night save for a meatball to Mike Cameron

You had the Marlins go up 3-0, go down 4-3, and win it 5-4.

You had the Marlins tattoo one of the best set up man in baseball in Scott Linebrink.

You had the Marlins go back to back, both being opposite field shots.

You had Joe Borchard, of all people, have the game winning hit.

You had the Marlins bullpen come in and slam the door shut.

Good times.

Oh and don't forget, we got to see Borchard smile, finally, that guy NEVER smiles! LOL
But yeah, good game all around, I like what I'm seeing from Owens closing. He is throwing strikes, and that's the reason Julio should never appear in a save situation for the Marlins again, or at least until he gets his act together.

In 2006, this game would have been a loss. Nice to be at .500

:cheers :marlins

I wondered if anyone would actually talk about the game.

It was a great game, the high, the lows, Hammer bringing everyone to their feet wishing the ball over the fence and then Joe Borchard, the frosting on the cake, the shot that made you proud as any baseball fan in the country tonight, it was a great inning after the heartbreak that preceeded it.

And Henry Owens. I thanked the lords of the Barry University Rte 95 monument for Henry as I drove home tonight, probably the biggest grin of the night. It was fun tonight, for Marlins fans. I can hardly wait for tomorrow night.

The magic of us being under .500 by like 10 games at this point.

Anyone got the call of the HR?

Everyone also got a hit tonight, save for Amezaga.

It was nice to see Hanley back on track with a 4 hit night.

Too excited and he may kill Aunt Betty listening in Palm Beach. :lol

Then you'd have to call in David W. Singer.

Not random at all.....the only thing is they always come from where I can't see them until they are right over me.

I guess that is what makes them so deadly. :cool

Julio should never appear in a save situation for the Marlins again, or at least until he gets his act together.

...which pretty much means he won't appear in a save situation. A dozen Freuds couldn't shrink Julio's head back into where it needs to be to be effective.

btw, is Wild Marlin Man still self-banned?



I guess that is what makes them so deadly.

The same can be said for the unwanted by-products of my intestinal tract after dining on Dolphin Stadium food.

Sorry Section 456

This time last year we would have lost this game. I think its a beautiful thing to look back and just smile at how this team really has progressed. One thing is for sure... last year set the bar for our midseason form. Hopefully we continue to do well!!! Yeah 2006 did have a lot of summer magic, but... just imagine what these kids are capable of.
