Morning Marlin Maniacs, TGIF to you.  Which means a new series, and a chance to move on from the sickeningly depressing finish to that past series against Philadelphia.  Positives of the last forty-eight hours are largely limited to that above shot of Ichiro Suzuki moving ever closer to 3000 hits.

Seriously, noted experts have done extensive research and determined that losing to the Phillies is only topped by losing to the Patriots, watching a twenty-four hour loop of that Sarah McLachlan puppy video, and having a finger slammed repeatedly in a car door.

But again, new series, even if it is still the NL East the Marlins are 9-13 against.  Something needs to give, and soon, if the team is going to keep their heads above water.

You’re Not The Only One Frustrated With Stanton  

Big G is too, as evidenced by Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.  Giancarlo Stanton apparently wanted to leave the ballpark having hit something, and decided some stationary targets in the dugout might be more up his alley.  Check the video, and the slugger’s thoughts on his devastatingly crushing to this author’s fantasy team certainly frustrating for real-life applications slump.
