When it comes to soft-tossing lefties, the Marlins are owned.  Moyer is 12-2 with a 3.06 ERA vs this barrell of Fish.

Coghlan is looking pretty good
Boni, get 2 strikes and then throw a fastball up for the K.  Inside, outside, up the left nostril - it doesn't matter, he can't lay off it and can't hit it.
Hanley - very hot week last week.  I think it was 11 RBI vs the O's
Cantu - Pretty good RBI man
Mr. LOB - the Ks are coming as quick as ever the past few weeks.  Drove in 2 of last 71 men on and not due for another until well after the ASG.  Offspeed and breaking stuff, and the Huevo Whiffer swing will be on display tonight.  It will bring tears to your eyes - either laughing or crying, depending on your perspective.
Ross - pretty hot June, but cooled down the past few games
Paulino - He's not Uggla, but that's about all he's got going for him.  Makes Piazza look like a defensive genius behind the plate.  In short, the game plan is steal steal steal
Carroll - not a power bat, but has been getting on and scoring.  Do not test his arm in RF - you will be thrown out.  Probably the best unknown OF arm in MLB - a web gem machine.
Nolasco - been better lately, almost to last year's form, but can get into deep pitch counts and turn over to a POS pen pretty early in the game.  Patience will get him out of there no later than the 6th.

Pouring right now, but radar looks like it should clear by game time.
