While You Were Drinking: Game 83 (SD vs. MIA)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Marlins beat the Padres 4-0 last night behind Jose Fernandez, the young Cuban hurler, who absolutely shoved. It was my first chance to see him pitch this year and he was as advertised. A phenomenal talent. The Padres are 40-43, 2.5 games behind division leading Arizona. The NL West has been terrible over the last week . . . except for LA. Uh-oh.

The Padres head to Boston for a three game series starting today. Robbie Erlin faces John Lackey.

Two up, two down: Marlins 4, Padres 0 – Jeff Sanders (U-T)


“He’s [Jose Fernandez] got a good arm, and he’s a very talented 20-year-old pitcher,” Black said. “He’s a guy that, when you break him down, he does a lot of things right. And for 20, he’s advanced, really is for a 20-year-old.

“He’s got a good delivery, repeats it. He can spin a breaking ball. That’s a very good breaking ball. One of the best breaking balls I’ve seen this year. A very good, tight breaking ball with great spin.” [Morgan]



Pedro Cirriaco is capable of making some really nice plays . . .

Pedro Dives

Pedro Sits

He just saved Jason Marquis a run. Now he’s thinking about how he might give one back.


It’s too bad his performance came against the Padres but Jose Fernandez sure is something to watch.
