Welcome back to another edition of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly Marlins Recap. Today we are recapping the Miami Marlins vs Houston Astros from March 24, 2013. Here is the quick recap. The Good Greg Dobbs going 3-3, The Bad we lost to the Astros 1-4, The Ugly the weather. If that was enough of a recap enjoy the rest of the site, if not here is a more in depth recap.
Looks like Greg Dobbs is getting to the grove again. Greg went 3-3 as the Marlins DH with a pair of doubles. He is proving that he belongs on the roster, and will be a great utility man the Marlins need. To add a little bit more good Giancarlo got the only RBI the Marlins had this game scoring Juan Pierre in the off a single. Now let’s move on to the not so good.

The Marlins lost to the Astros 1-4. A lost is always bad, but the Astros are the team this year projected to be worst then the Marlins, so this could be taken as a bad sign. Though it is still Spring Training and neither team this game had there best roster of the field. The really bad was Jacob Turners pitching. Jacob is one of many players fighting for that last spot in the Marlins rotation. This outing might have just dropped him back to AAA. Jacob gave up 5 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 1 HR and only stuck out 1 batter. I think Jacob can bounce back from this and make the starting roster later on in the season, but for right now he need to improve back in the minors.

The weather was horrible! The game was called in the bottom of the 5th due to insane rain and wind. Most of Central Florida was under Tornado warning and down the street from the game was the Arnold Palmer Classic which was also called due to rain. It was not a fun sunny day to be in Central Florida.
