Remember Burke Badenhop?

Once upon a time, there was a fifth starter for the Marlins named Burke Badenhop. Between an off-day, increased production from Nolasco and Miller, and a shortage of bullpen arms, Mr. Badenhop was relegated into a purgatory of sorts (not quite as frightening as Dante's, but an unsettling one nevertheless): the space between rotation and bullpen!

Well tonight, Burke Badenhop ascends back into Paradiso, aka. the rotation. Battling him will be another one of these Divine Comedy ascenders, Jorge Campillo. Campillo started the year in Atlanta's bullpen, but pitched so effectively that he earned a rotation spot. His ERA? A glistening 0.99.

Still, Campillo's outings are short. The Marlins should work the counts to get him out of the game, hoping it comes down to the bullpens...Oh wait, hasn't the Marlins bullpen blown 3 saves already on this trip? Scratch that. Just try and score as many runs as possible!
