One or two small tweaks won’t make this team a World Series contender, and while as a fan I would love to go all-in and win right now, no Marlins fan should want that at the expense of Miami’s very deep, very promising farm system moving forward.

"There was a number of deals we were working on today. Some of them got legs. This one got legs. This was the only one that got legs. There were some others we came up a little short on. But in the end we were happy to add a starting pitcher to the fold."

Manager Mike Redmond got himself tossed and didn't hold back afterward. "I'll tell you as a former catcher in this league for 13 seasons, as a grinder who loved this game and respect this game so much, this game has been a part of my life forever. To lose a ballgame tonight on that play is a joke," he said. "It's an absolute joke. I don't think anybody who plays this game should feel good about winning that game. And I would say that if had been reversed."

The review was interminable. The outcome was unconscionable. When crew chief Mike Winters shed the headset and signaled safe, that set off manager Mike Redmond into a justifiable cap-throwing, profanity-spewing boil. Instead of an inning-ending 9-2 double play and the Marlins taking a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the eighth, the out call at the plate was overturned.

The Marlins didn't move anyone on their 25-man roster in order to make Thursday's six-player trade with the Astros, so they had to make up for it optioning infielder Ed Lucas and left-handed reliever Dan Jennings to Triple-A New Orleans. The transactions, announced after Thursday night's 3-1 loss to the Reds, freed up room for starter Jarred Cosart and utility man Enrique Hernandez.

It wasn't easy for the Marlins to part ways with outfielder Jake Marisnick and third-base prospect Colin Moran in their six-player trade with the Astros on Thursday.
