Marlins Sink in New Power Rankings

Not surprisingly, the Marlins fell in SI's new power rankings. Last week the Marlins were 3rd (in just about everyone's rankings). This week they're 9th (which sure feels generous when the Pirates have knocked them around for the past three days).

One funny quip makes it a little less painful:

Starter Josh Beckett has a $150 deer head named "Buck" mounted on the clubhouse wall. Press a button and "Buck" talks and sings up to six songs, including Elvis Presley's Suspicious Minds. "Someone's going to take a bat to it," said teammate Brian Moehler.

It's hard to disagree with Moehler's assessment.
