Give It Up…Take It Back
Should I sit here and write about the great win the Marlins had tonight? Maybe. I could also point out that we won a close game for once. Possibly throw in the clutch pinch hit by Hanley Ramirez to get that lead and continue to give him props for a consistantly good season in his rookie year.
BUT THE GAME SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOT TO THIS POINT IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!
With a 5-0 lead in the third inning, the Marlins, including the atrocious bullpen, allowed the Nationals to chip away at that lead finally giving way in the seventh inning when Brian Schneider blasted a homer off of Franklyn German. I like Brian Moehler, but we need to get him out of the rotation. He might fare better in the pen and give it a little more stability. You really can’t do much worse than how he is pitching so I suppose Joe can throw anyone in the spot. It will be just another guy he can keep in to throw 130 pitches and give up 10 runs in the process. I believe this win takes us off pace to break the Mets modern record for losses of 120.
Starting later this week, I’ll be writing about my tenure as a T-Ball coach. We’re playing two games a week and from the looks of it, this is going to be a fun, yet trying time. Hope you get a kick out of some of the stories and the pictures I post here.
