Day Off Doesn't Lessen the Wounds

The Marlins had a much-needed day off today, but it did little to ameliorate the pain from last night's jaw-dropping stomach-punching ball-busting loss. Yes, I'm still pissed.

Alfredo Amezaga put the Marlins ahead 6-5 in the twelfth on a startling HR, only to have Justin Miller blow it (and blow it in horrendous fashion, I might add). Both Miller and Gregg were guilty of blown saves in the same game...quite simply, the Marlins let one slip away.

It is, after all, one game, but it gave the resurgent Mets some new hope and put the Phillies within .5 games. This weekend's series in Philadelphia will decide the leaderboard for the NL East. Should be exciting!

We'll have much more on the upcoming series, so keep following our coverage.

I know exactly what you mean. I haven't been that pissed after a Marlins game in quite some time. I was cursing Justin Miller and my fiance was getting annoyed at me, saying "it's just a game." I tried to make her understand, but I was unsuccessful. I'll be at at least one game this weekend, so let's hope for a better series in Philly!

Great comment Paul. Would you like to write a post for us about the game you attend?
