Marlins ace Jose Fernandez is now one win away from tying the major league record for most consecutive wins at home to start a career. Fernandez didn't have his best stuff in last night's game, but he avoided serious trouble and kept the Fish in front for good.
Mat Latos is on the trade block, and the Marlins want young talent in return for the right-hander. The Toronto Blue Jays are seeking starting pitching, so the two teams could be trade partners again as the deadline nears.
Opening Day starter Henderson Alvarez has undergone season-ending surgery and his return date is yet unclear. He was slated to be Miami's number two starter next season.
It appeared that the Marlins would have some new neighbors in the near future as David Beckham and his MLS team had decided on a spot next to Marlins Park to build a stadium. However, the Fish hold all of the cards and could make it very difficult for a soccer franchise to succeed financially.
