Marlins bring Ali out there with Loria so no one boos Loria. Smart.
Haha, I noticed that.
Anyone else hoping that the Marlins do squat? Sick of all the hype. That team finished in last place last season. I don't think adding Jose "contract-year"/"Softer than Charmin" Reyes, Carlos Zambrano, Mark Buehrle, and Heath Bell changes all that much.
God it would be so awesome if they got no-hit in their first game there. Agree that I would love to see them suck because if they do the fans won't go and they'll have to dump guys in trades like they did in the 90s
Good to see our offense show up today. First Frediot move of the season: letting Constanza bat with Pastornicky at 3rd and 1 out. Guy shouldn't even be on the roster let alone batting against a lefty in a huge spot.
Why not call in Hinske with Pastornicky on 3rd? At least he may have been able to get the sac fly.
It really made no sense. If he didn't double switch when he brought Medlen he wouldn't have put himself in that spot. Instead he did and figured since he already put Constanza in he might as well leave him. Honestly, it might seem a little bold, but the right play would have been to use Francisco there since the Mets brought a lefty. It's a tough spot for a kid in his first game but I think it would be right since it gets R/L matchup and it also saves Hinske. But it's such a big spot that they should have used someone besides him, be it Hisnke or Francisco. I wish we had someone else that play catcher to use Ross there but that's irrelevant, no team really does. I can't wait for Chipper to come back just so Constanza goes back down. He really shouldn't have made the team over Durango or Sutton.
