You know, I think it's high time that the Phillies and Marlins start getting along. Why so cross, guys? Is it just because the Phillies want to embarrassingly beat up on the Marlins in what would be a delightful farce of a game? Come on, Marlins. You know that's going to happen at some point. Why not just let it be your old pals the Phillies! They'll even let you set the terms. Do you want all the runs scored in just one inning? Or two? or it could be the third, seventh, and ninth! They're willing to compromise. Just consider it!
Cole Hamels seeks to return to form tonight, and the Marlins are sending young hurler Jose Fernandez to the mound. Fernanadez made his major league debut against the Mets last week, and he struck out 8 in five innings, allowing just one earned run. Last week, Cole Hamels was... um... you know, let's just skip that.
Here's hoping tonight's game is more interesting than last night's. Discuss it in the comments below.
