Andrew Miller had yet another solid outing but suffered from control issues and a Hanley Ramirez error that killed his chances of a 4-2 record. To add to Miller’s new status as the Marlins ace, he is leading the team in strike outs with 35. He struck out 6 in 5 innings of work last night while only giving up 2 earned runs.
It is officially Miller time!
Dan Uggla is freakin’ unbelievable! Last night he hit just about everything, including his 13th home run of the season. The once underrated Uggla is now becoming a hobby favorite and suddenly there are cards of him selling for thousands on eBay. I don’t know about you, but I’d bid on this before any $1,000 dollar card. Go, Go Uggla fans!
Today there is a press conference to officially announce Hanley’s new contract, which will take place in the remains of the Orange Bowl, site of the future home of the Miami Marlins. Ugh, that sounds horrible. Anyways, Wax Heaven will be there so expect press conference AND game photos tonight! If we don’t get a photo with Alex Gordon or Billy Butler after the game, we will have sat through an entire Royals game. That’s one hell of a punishment, no?
