The move up from seventh to second for Marisnick is an interesting one. Marisnick is mired in a slump right now, yet the Fish are trusting him over Ed Lucas to deliver in the second spot. Based on the characteristics that a traditional second hitter has, Marisnick does not quite fit yet, so I wonder why the move was made in light of his struggles.

Bold Prediction: Braves def. Marlins 6-1
