The Miami Marlins were supposed to compete in last night's game, but instead Jose Fernandez and the team were blown out by the Cincinnati Reds 11-1. Tonight, the Marlins look to stave off another long losing skid by taking on Mat Latos and the Reds in the second of a four-game series. The Fish counter with Kevin Slowey.

The Miami Marlins are not winning games despite a passable pitching performance from their starters, even if the pitching is not likely to stick. Kevin Slowey is among the players whose ERA is low and corresponding peripherals are high, but for now, Fish fans have to hope his numbers still stick for this start.
Mat Latos is good. The Marlins' offense is not. Uh oh.

Joe Mahoney makes his Marlins major league debut, and he does so batting cleanup in one of the team's only "formidable" set of hitters. The Fish have a not-so-threatening middle of the order that features Giancarlo Stanton but is backed by Mahoney, Justin Ruggiano (the Marlins' current best hitter), and Rob Brantly.
- I will be around for the beginning of the game, but I will probably hop out midway through for social events. The hope is that, by then, the Marlins will not be out of the game.
Bold Prediction: Reds def. Marlins 5-1
