Marlins (Turner 2-4) vs Braves (Hanson 13-9); Our opinion of this season and upcoming off-season
- Updated: September 28, 2012
The Miami Marlins take on the Atlanta Braves tonight at 7:10 PM. The Marlins throughout this season have NOT been up to expectations this year at all. This is a divisional game and the Braves have had the upper hand in this match-up throughout the year.
The Braves have dominated the Marlins so far. I hope we can get a win to bring some pride back to our fans and hopefully we will have a productive off-season. In my opinion Ozzie Guillen has hurt this ball club with the carelessness of the bullpen and who he puts in, he does NOT know how to create a productive lineup card AT ALL. The (Marlins this year could take the average Joe that has been watching baseball as long as Ozzie has been playing and would have this team in a better spot at this point in the season.)
Alright, the Marlins front office needs to figure out what has been going wrong with this ball club. Honestly, I think we just needed time to mesh together and learn each others strengths. We shouldn’t have “gave” away our former batting title winner in Hanley Ramirez and our best reliever in Randy Choate for some pitcher we had no idea about and so far has shown tremendous inconsistency and the other pitchers we traded for haven’t seen a day of Major League Baseball ever since the trade.
And then we “gave away” Anibal Sanchez, who at the time was, one of our best pitchers that got the LEAST run support in the NL. Also, we traded Omar Infante who was on pace to win the NL Gold Glove and he batted .280+ with over 10 doubles and 10 SB when we traded him.. My advice to Mike Hill – Don’t trade if you don’t have to.
