Oh the irony of the Marlins having a good/winning team this year with nobody* in the stands.

*literally nobody, not the usual "nobody in Miami" ;)

Well seeing how they have only played one good team, and only 11 games I would say that history will eventually catch up to them. Marlins have never won the East and I suspect this isn't the year that they win it either.

I like their approach, throw the young guys out there and see how they do. You lose the pressure of the fans and it allows those guys to potentially perform!

I wish Atlanta would take note of it with Pache and Waters along with Anderson, Muller, and Davidson. Granted I am beginning to question Atlanta's ability to coach any pitchers up. Soroka and Fried are exception to the rule there. What they are calling with Wright as he works through a line up after the first inning is criminal.

Well you also have to take into account that Atlanta at the beginning of the season (before COVID) looked to have a pretty solid rotation and one of the best bullpens in baseball.

1) Soroka- Hurt out for the season
2) Fried- in the running for the NL CY Young
3) Hamels- Hurt will return in September
4) Foltz- back to assignment after a pretty good year
5) Felix/ Newcomb- Opt out/ assignment


Now

1) Fried
2) Erlin
3) Tomlin
4) Touki
5) probably Anderson soon

I mean the fact that Atlanta is still currently in 1st place is pretty amazing. That doesn’t even take into account that Acuna, Albies, and Markakis have significant portions of missed games.
