Marlins Say Adios to First Place

I’ve been glued to the tube and to my stadium seat for the last month or so, basking in the Marlins first place run.

But I’m afraid it’s over.

Starting pitching is the problem. And the bullpen to a lesser degree.

Hey Justin Miller blew the save the other day. And only one starter, Scott Olsen, has an ERA under 4. Andrew Miller, despite a couple good outings, is at 5.53. And he's the friggin future.

So enjoy today, Marlins fans, cuz the very hot Phillies -- who have won four in a row -- will take over first place tonight…and aren’t likely to lose it anytime soon.
