Today's posts are very few since the server maintenance really put a crimp in my style. While this is probably good news for you cuz I wanted to bore you with more stuff. But alas.

Anyway, onto the game.

The NL East Leading Marlins are in Atlanta to take on the Braves.

Miller most likely had the quintessential quote about his progress so far this season .

''I know I can't pitch like this all year, or I won't be here very long at all,'' he said.

It all comes down to control and consistency of his pitches. Andrew has the stuff he just needs to master it.

Bennett will be making his third start of the season for the Braves. Up to this point he has yet to go five innings in a start. It's not that he has pitched badly as a starter but it more due to he is by trade a reliever and isn't stretched out yet. The Marlins have seen him before this season when he was relieving. You remember that PH HR by Gonzo, Bennett was on the mound.

Ichthyomancy is still in catch up mode, but is ready for new picks. Good Luck!
