Let's Get It On- Marlins Series Preview

Philadelphia Phillies (19-22) @ Miami Marlins (23-22)

Pitching Match-Ups:
Tuesday, 7:10 - Sports Hernia Burnett vs. Rookie DeSclafani
Wednesday, 7:10 - KK vs. 100 MPH Eovaldi
Thursday, 12:40 - Cole Hames vs. Henderson Alvarez

Fish's Bats:
R - 204 (6th)
AVG - .263 (4th)
OPS - .746 (5th)

The offense is spearheaded by the man, the myth, the legend Giancarlo Stanton/RF (.318/1.017, 12 HR, 43 RBI). Reclamation project returning from Japan, Casey McGehee/3B is hitting .294/.745 with 28 RBI.  The rest of the cast include a bunch of guys hitting .260ish with OPS around .700, but collectively doing very well.

Fish's Arms:
ERA - 3.72 (14th)
WHIP - 1.30 (16th)

The Phils are screwed this series, a rookie they've never seen (automatic loss), Eovaldi's heater (loss), and Alvarez twirling magic (loss).  Oh, and AJ Ramos and Steve Cishek in the bullpen are freakin' nice too.

Prediction:
Marlins hit more than the Phillies and pitch better than the Phillies.  Make of that what you will...

I remember when the Phillies were taking 14 or 15 of 18 from the Marlins a few years ago. Good times.

Marlins are a young team on the cusp of something good. Losing Jose Fernandez was a big blow, but they have the minor league depth to still help fill the gap.
