Series Preview - Another Crappy NL East Team

Philadelphia Phillies (83-45) vs Miami Marlins (58-72)

Pitching Matchups:
Friday, 7:05 - Roy Oswalt v. Clay Hensley
Saturday, 1:05 - Roy Halladay v. Anibal Sanchez
Saturday, 7:05 - Cliff Lee v. ???

[In case you didn't already know, the Sunday game is moved to Saturday night as part of a day/night doubleheader. This way that bitch Irene can't wash out Sunday's game...unless it rains Saturday night. The Florida starter for the night game is still undetermined. Last Florida v. Philadelphia doubleheader was June 15th of this year. The Phils took both games.]

Flounders Batting:
Runs - 508 (22nd)
AVG - .245 (24th)
OBP - .317 (15th)

Flounders Pitching:

What We're Listening Too

Corey - Scorpions - "Rock You Like A Hurricane"

Carson - Blind Melon - "No Rain"

Their Michael Martinez:
Mike Cameron is hitting .178.

Their Danys Baez:
Closer Leo Nunez has 33 saves but also a 4.63 ERA. Clay Hensley and Chris Volstad both have ERAs around five and a half.

Fish Roster Report:
Randy Choate is on the DL. Chris Coghlan and his .230 average are on the DL. And surprise, surprise, Hanley Ramirez is on the DL. Is this guy going to have the same career arc as Gary Sheffield? Supremely talented infielder --> attitude problems --> unfulfilled potential --> traded multiple times --> tons of steroids and subsequent home runs --> always an ass.

My Favorite Marlin:
Logan Morrison. Quick summary - The Marlins sent Morrison, one of their top hitters and most popular players, to AAA basically because he was doing too much talking on Twitter and to the media. They made some comments about professionalism and "being ready for the majors" and whatnot. Well, the AAA stint lasted 10 days. Did LoMo learn his "lesson." Not sure. Check out this interview with the Palm Beach Post.
When asked if he has talked to anybody in the organization since the demotion, Morrison said, "I haven’t talked to anybody. I didn’t really care."

When asked why he believes he was sent down, Morrison said, "I have no idea."

When asked how he will change, Morrison said, "I’ll be the same person."

When asked what was accomplished by him being in New Orleans for 10 days, Morrison said, "I don’t know."

When asked to describe his relationship with the organization, Morrison said, "I’m the baseball player and they provide the uniform."
What We're Drinking:
Corey - Hurricane malt liquor in a 40 oz. bottle.

Carson - Clipper City Brewing Co.'s Small Craft Warning (uber ale).

Prediction:
Rain!!!

If the playoffs started today, I've got Worley in the rotation over Oswalt. Roy2 has been a big disappointment this season.
