Miami Marlins: Grading the Fish in Atlanta
Tayron Guerrero -.954
Tayron Guerrero didn’t really play that much. He didn’t enter the series until there were two outs in the bottom of the ninth of the final game. In all honesty, he shouldn’t have been placed in the situation.

Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly called on closer Brad Ziegler with a five-run lead. That’s a NON-SAVE SITUATION. Do not put closers into games that are NON-SAVE SITUATIONS. Guerrero should have come in, with Ziegler on standby in case of trouble. For some reason, Donnie Baseball played it backwards. Rob wrote a lot more about it, here.
Anyway, Guerrero came into the game with a 9-7 lead and two outs, with a runner on first. Nick Markakis stole second base (+.002). Tyler Flowers drew a walk (-.044). Kurt Suzuki hit an RBI-single to left (-.081) to close the lead to one. After a Guerrero wild pitch (-.072), Johan Camargo walked to load the bases (-.029). Dansby Swanson then hit a walkoff, two-RBI-single (-.725). That’s all she wrote. Meltdown. Anyway.
