The day has finally arrived! No, it’s not the new year or some holiday (Although it really should be) but it’s the start of something great. Baseball season. The freshly cut grass, the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd. For me, baseball has been in session

When we last left our lovable Marlins, they were struggling losing all but one game against the Phillies in a four-game set. By then they had lost 6 of 7. Reemerging after Hurricane Irma, thankful to be alive and well, we find the team’s woes continuing at a dismal pace.

The Marlin’s woes continue as the Phillies took 3 of 4, sending the Marlins’ playoff hopes deeper into the abyss. They have now lost 6 of 7 with the division leading Washington Nationals coming to town for the final three games of the season between these two teams. The first game
