Complete Coverage >

As some of you may have heard, I made my trip up to Atlanta for a six-week stay at my parents' hometown for clinical rotations. Eric Weston did a superb job in my absence, including in his reporting of my kidnapping and brainwashing by Atlanta Braves fans. I was indeed stolen away for a day or two before returning to duty late last night. The Braves fans attempted to have me see their way, trying convince me that Jason Heyward was better than Giancarlo Stanton and that John Smoltz really did deserve that Cy Young award over Kevin Brown in 1996.

Don't worry folks, I made it out alive. I am still a Miami Marlins fan down to the very bottom of my soul, and no amount of Braves brainwashing will shake my resolve. All hail Chipper Jones Eric Gregg Livan Hernandez!

Also, break out the brook breakers, because the Miami Marlins are trying to bust up a sweep.

It will be Ricky Nolasco versus Wade Miley in the finale of this series.
