Okay... so THAT sucked.

I had planned to write more of the back-story of Mike and Dan (and Stella Mae, of course) - and how they all got together with Shadez in the D.R. one summer on vacation...

But man - am I bummed out.

I know that losing to the Cards is not really a bad thing - they are a great team, and we all know we suck... but anytime you get your ass handed to you seemingly so easily - swept! - at home, by ANYONE... that's painful.  And for all of that to come after the little tease of the state stadium money....

Damn.

I needed some cheering up.  So what did I do?  If you've been reading any of this for a while your first guess would probably be scotch.  

I can't say that hasn't been involved...  

However - I actually have Marlins-related goodness here.  Granted, it ain't much - but it's something.

Look at this page.  It is the current NL hitting leaders, with addendums for our fish.  Notice that for every category (except home runs and hits) we have a representative in the top ten - and in the ones we miss - we miss just barely.  I know it is early and that our representatives consist entirely of Cabrera, Willingham and Ramirez, but hell - I'll take good news where I can get it.  By the way - Miguel comes up as third in the league in OBP.  Mmmmm...

If we could get Hermida back and hitting like he was supposed to, this team might actually be able to score some runs.

Of course - we won't talk about the pitching.  Good God...  Did you realize that Mitre is technically the Marlins' ERA leader at 4.89?  

Back to the scotch...
