________________________________________________

Although Simontacchi gave up three home runs in his last start against the Brewers, manager Manny Acta went so far as to say that Simontacchi pitched one of his best games of the season. Simontacchi's fastball was clocked at 93 mph, a season high. His ERA doesn't tell the whole story of his season. With the exception of three starts in which he gave up a combined 21 runs, Simontacchi has pitched well during his comeback year.

A stiff upper back, or back spasms, led to Olsen turning in the shortest start of his career his final time out before the break. The lefty worked one inning at Los Angeles before exiting with his back ailment, yielding three runs on five hits. His velocity was way down -- mid 80s -- which raised concerns. Olsen had worked at least six innings in his four previous starts before his setback at Dodger Stadium. The lefty has thrown 103 1/3 innings, second most on the Marlins.

the fact that Zimmerman has stopped trying to pull everything is a good sign...

Killer...

A pitcher who can't throw strikes gets a free out.  :roll:

what a damn joke... #3-4 hitters produce 3 outs after the first two get on.  unacceptable if you want to win the game

I believe Cabrera is a free agent after this season. Do you guys think the Marlins will show him the loot?

Now can we force Olsen to throw strikes and not give him any easy outs?
