Now our best pitcher is getting his ass kicked.. The marlins score 9 runs yet again.  And tomorrow we trot a rookie making his first ever ML start out to the mound.  If there is light at the end of the tunnel, I do not see it.   :(
Hey, can't go nowhere but up at this point. We've seen the worst

It's going to be near impossible.  The rookie Chico is pitching for us and Anibal Sanchez (who pitched a no hitter last year) is on the mound for them.  The only thing that helps us is that Anibal is RH.

Game over - this is going to be a LONG season if they can't play any better than this.  If we play like this against the Marlins...how are we going to play against the Mets and the Phillies... :(

Anibal Sanchez isn't some Nolan Ryan in the making.  There should be no fear of him.  He pitched a no hitter....once. 

I have a good feeling about Chico.  Lets see what he can do.

Our best chance is a RAIN OUT!

Caught the end of the game....we spotted Florida 6 runs AGAIN?!?!?!

There is a rule that we can score before that happens right?

Just wait til this show goes on the road  :'(

yikes, bad night again. Rangers lose in OT and Nationals get obliterated? geez. I'm almost glad I didn't gameday this game. The only thing I did see, was Zimmerman's RBI. Maybe I should've watched a little longer? haha my bad everyone.

So, Let's see what Chico's got shall we?

Just got back from the game. A tough one. Hill really pitched ok against a tough lineup. The first inning was a nightmare, because it was a combination of bad defense (Young) and simply some really dumb luck. Losing the starting CF and starting SS on opening day just hurts.

It looked like Casto and Wilson had some opening jitters, but ultimately hung in there and had decent games. Casto seemed to need to get that first flyout out of the way. Both Wilson and Casto had some nice at bats.

The first inning seemed like a game of inches between grazing Ramirez on the first at bat and then failing to get anything out of Wilson's nice snag. It compounded from there.

It was a very unfortunate hole to dig. And of course Young was at the center of it all.

The reality is that Hill pitched pretty well over his 5 innings and the team turned a double play in 3 of the first 4 innings. You would never know by the score. But that is something to build on since Wilson was actually able to get on base so much.
 
I would have kept Hill in instead of batting Belliard, but I assumed that Manny wanted Hill to leave on a positive note since he recovered pretty well after throwing around 40 pitches in the first through little fault of his own.

In the doghouse: Ray King. He failed to cover first on a double-play ball. Isn't that twice in 4 days? Unacceptable.
