Summary of tonight's game

Why do you think Damion didn't play tonight? After how well he swung the bat yesterday, I would have thought we'd see him again.

I think leiter pitched great side the first inning he was great, he kept us in the game which is what you ask for from a #5 starter which i thik he should be classified as. Guillermo Mota Struggled, but what i did like was that when jack took him out he sure gave him a piece of his mind.

You don't pay #5 starters the kind of money Leiter is getting. Either way, 4 runs in 5 innings is slop. The Marlins can't score 5 runs these days, so 4 runs in 5 IP isn't good enough.

This team needs a kick in the rear. Something. Anything.

 

They're often a step late to each ball. They hack at breaking balls and watch strikes. They lob balls to the cut-off man with runners on base. 2-out hits followed by the demoralizing third out. Cautious on the basepaths, foregoing bases they easily could have taken on the throw. No pep talks with the pitcher. Nothing.

 

They can't win, they can't be happy, they don't play to win.

 

 

 

BTW, terrible call by Jack to bring in the infield in the 8th. Runners on with 0 outs calls for you to get as many outs as possible in the situation. Preventing that 6th run does nothing. Suppose the runner is thrown out at home, which rarely happens, there's absolutly no chance you're going to catch Guzman at first base for the second out. The 6th run is now on second base with 1 out. Same difference, and that's IF it works. His head has not been in the game either.

Mota looked okay to me. He wasn't very sure of his fastball and got burned with some poor change-ups. Church's hit is a double if Enc plays with any effort, and little chance he scores if the defense can play at normal depth for the following batters. The run he gave up in the 7th was pure hustle on the part of Jamey Carroll. The way JP and Luiy used to create runs out of nothing.

For those who thought Joe Dillon would be the savior (and those who think Willy will be), I hope you've seen the light by now.

and what light would that be?

 

that Jack doesnt give Joe D a chance to do anything?

 

not saying Willingham will be the savior, but he could definitely bring life to this lineup(assuming he would get to play)

Exactly. If they do bring him up, he'll ride the pine just like Dillon. I can't believe the people that thought Dillon would play enough to be any kind of a savior.
