All right, let's try this one more time.
The Miami Marlins will look to snap a seven-game losing streak that started at the tail end of their Philadelphia Phillies series and has extended through Chicago and Tampa Bay. This time, the Marlins will be at home to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Marlins will look to Tom Koehler to deliver a decent performance. Each of his last starts have been quality starts, and he struck out 10 batters in 12 innings with just three walks. And as Carson Cistulli points out in this article. Koehler has kept his velocity decent at close to 94 mph.
Roberto Hernandez was once a bad starter for the Cleveland Indians. He is now trying his luck with the Rays, and he has actually been pretty decent. You know, aside from giving up 10 homers in 48 2/3 innings and such.

By golly, the Marlins will overestimate Chris Coghlan as often as they possibly can! Coghlan is undergoing a short resurgence, but the odds of him panning out like he did in 2009 are quite long. But darned if the Marlins aren't trying.
Then again, his projection shows that he would be better than the other players we have, so there's that.
- I will be late as I was yesterday. Keep the seat warm for me everyone!
