– I did a Cardinals version of this preview for fellow BBA blogger Daniel Shoptaw over at his site, C70 at the Bat; you can check it out here. Hope all is going well for Daniel while he is on vacation.
– I must say this: Mike Stanton is really impressing me. There isn’t much else to say about that; his power is monstrous.
– Marlins fans are still looking for a recognition of a poor call by umpire Bob Davidson. I doubt we’ll be getting it.
Bold Prediction: Marlins win one of three games
