I know why you're here. You came for some Odrisamer Despaigne, the man with the most interesting name in the game. Despaigne has pitched to a 3.06 ERA in AAA this season but a 5.73 FIP, suggesting that this may be painful for however long it has to last.

Opposing him will be Robert Gsellman. Gsellman has been one of the worst starters in baseball this season, so one can only hope that the Marlins proceed to smoketh him, henceforth. We could be in for a slobber knocker, folks.

Thread Question:

Does Loria have the gall to blow it all up one last time before he bows out of the picture entirely?
