We're in a bad way, guys. Team comes in on an 8-game losing streak and they sweep us. Injuries yes, but we can't use that as an excuse against teams like the Nationals, especially when we throw the middle game away.

I knew we had to get five in the 7th, because we were gonna get SHO the rest of the way- we have a way of scoring in bunches. When we got only four, I had a feeling we were done.

No, but we're better than Washington.

Meh game, we need to win 3 out of 4 against the Pirates. Atleast the Pirates won today so they wont be that hungry for a win.

Wait wait wait wait wait.

Let' see if these people still want changes after this road trip. 10 games vs the Nats, Pitt, and Tampa should change the the end of the world is near/nay sayers/finger pointers' minds. We are on a record breaking pace for Ks but seems to me we were last year as well at this time and we turned things around. If you take that aggresivness away from them at the plate then the Ks will drop, but so will the rest of the offensive stats. If it ain't broke don't fix it, and right now it's just a little bent.


Just remember. :whistle

Hey, Hey, so you havent noticed when a team loses a butt load of games in a row they just so happen to go on a hot streak when they are playing us?

I've never heard the "won't be hungry for a win" theory in my entire life

It's because we're not good not because of this "hungry for a win" crap.

Just a complete embarassment for the club this weekend. It is always said but now we just need to focus on winning one game. If we can win the first game of the Pittsburgh series we are in okay shape. If we can win the series we will be in good position to finish off the trip well going into Tampa Bay. I fully expect to see Hermida starting in this next series.

I dont think that saying the team is hurting is an excuse, it's the reality of the situation:

- Starting Amezega, Borchard, Treanor (although not as a result of injury) makes the bottom of the lineup unspeakably awful. Add to that Jacobs being at about 70% or so and there are only 4 legitimate major league starting players in the lineup.

- Cabrera was terrible in this series. As he goes, so goes the offense. His defense also was very shaky. I have no doubt he'll have a big series in Pittsburgh though

- This team needs to start off well against the Pirates. Any one know if we might see Hermida out there?

During the rain delay last night the marlins replayed that Uggla show. Well, somehow the screen froze on a picture of Uggla when he was really young. When the game started the picture never came off the screen. It was bad. Uggz smile kept getting bigger and bigger.
