Marlins Look to Home For Comfort

The four-game series in Cincinnati that wasn't (both in terms of expectations and logistics) was a nightmare concocted by some Riverfront demons. Three crushing losses, the last of which the Marlins scored 6 in the 9th just to blow it in the 10th, left many a Fish fans cringing.

The Marlins - believe it or not - are still in first place, and they can right the ship tonight. Reports are that Andrew Miller will still get the start (on an extra day's rest), to see if he can build on his previous two gems. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm actually looking forward to it. I really think he could be the guy who stops the bleeding.

Also of note: Matt Treanor is now being called the starter. Thank god! This should have happened four weeks ago.
