I thought edwin should have gone for the squeeze in the 7th, with Infante up and boni on 3rd and one out, and cogs should at least being running there. Infante needs to be move down on the order, the guy wont repeat the year he had last year, Gaby/Lomo should be hitting second.

Anibal started slow but recovered nicely...

Bullpen was great as usual Webb was just unlucky with some dink and donks...

 

Hitting needs to be more consistent throughout the entire game.

 

Hanley's double where Stanton couldn't move him over comes to mind.

 

Infante had a chance to give the Marlins the lead with 1 out and a man on 3rd and at the end of the game disappointed he wasn't able to get them in, but thats the way it goes sometimes.

 

Marlins playing great baseball you have to be excited.

They called Infante a professional hitter on the Phillies broadcast.

So, the professional hitter swings at the first-pitch, IIRC to hit into a double play in one AB. Then, in his other AB he makes it a point to get away from a ball that he should have plainly let hit him - it wasn't even a fastball! lol

 

The first pitch of the last AB also looked high to me, but whatever.

But when gaby or lomo do get moved up and get on base, who will drive them in? Not infante

Gaby 2nd is not a bad idea. The lefty/lefty thing doesn't bother me much, so I'd put LoMo up there, but Gaby is a fine choice, too. Let Infante figure things out and earn that spot in that lineup.

One of the two is being wasted hitting 6th, Hanley and Stanton will get it going. I get lomo hitting 5th for two reasons: 1. to split the lefties 2. hes shown more power this year.

On another note, Fish need to start scoring runs earlier on a more consistent basis, tough to keep winning ballgames when you have to crawl back from early deficits

 

 

+1

 

How many times have the Marlins started out with a lead besides the most recent game against the Braves which was then given right back in the bottom of that inning.

I like that you have a platoon of Dobbs-Helms batting 6th followed by Buck and Infante.

I think thats because they were facing Oswalt and Hamels. I´m not worried about that.

Of the 8 wins, 6 have been comeback wins, and this is the first one run loss of the year. They are now 4-1 in one run games.

 

The loss sucks, but I don't mind it that much. Still a 5-3 road trip, and 3-2 against the Braves and Phillies. If anything, I'm just kinda pissed that Ryan Webb gets a loss for this; he was really good, again.

By the way, the coaching deserves some blame for this loss.

 

Why was Wes Helms playing for a bunt in the bottom of the 8th inning with the 5th hitter up? What are the odds that Ben Francisco bunts in that situation? I didn't understand that. And of course, grandpa Wes has no range. Bonifacio should be getting more playing time.

2. Hanley

3. LoMo

4. Stanton

5. Gaby

6. Infante

7. Buck

8. Pitcher

9. Bonifacio

 

I wish Edwin would try that to see what happens.

 

Bonifacio gets to that ball today in the 8th inning. He also gets to other balls that got by Wes Helms today. Probably even gets to the little bloop single Ryan Howard got because Bonifacio outruns the ball. If you put him hitting 9th, his .OBP won't hurt the top of the order, and he's a huge plus whenever he gets on base in the bottom of the order.
