Marlins Develop Secret Weapon Against Opposing Pitchers


It appears the Marlins have developed a secret weapon that may be contributing to their recent success.  The picture below was taken before Stephen Strasburg’s start against the Marlins on July 12th, a game the Marlins won 8-3.

Strasburg’s line that day read like this:

MLB.com’s Nationals writer Bill Ladson called it “arguably the worst game of his career.”  If one of the best pitchers in the league can be affected in this manner, imagine what this secret weapon can do when deployed against some of the lesser talented pitchers.  Keep it up Marlins!  This should be a big help in the second half of the season      

 

 

I do think there should be a better caption for the picture though, so here are few suggestions in the form of a poll.  Please pick your favorite and feel free to contribute your own suggestions in the comments section below.

How should the caption of the Marlins Secret Weapon read?
