The Miami Marlins are staying at home for a three-game set against their familiar rivals, the Philadelphia Phillies. Tonight is the first of a three-game set, with Alex Sanabia taking the bump again, this time against Cole Hamels. The Fish are looking to carry some strong pitching momentum after yesterday's 2-1 win.

Seriously, Alex Sanabia is doing nothing that says he is a major league pitcher. Well, nothing except that ridiculous 10.3 percent swinging strike rate.

As I feared, the Marlins may indeed be platooning Rob Brantly and Jeff Mathis. Let the Jeff Mathis experience begin!
