Nats Have No Answer For Marlins’ BeckettThe Post
Marlins 8, Nationals 0
This is very annoying. It would be easy to say that Frank Robinson is leaving his starters in too long, but when the next option is reliever, Antonio Osuna, I have to think that leaving in the starters until their arms fall off might not be so bad. Osuna’s ERA is in the 40s. Really.

Also, I hate the Marlins (but not in the way I hate the Phillies and Mets) because they are a joke franchise with an awful name and bad uniforms who got lucky twice. They also play in a big orange football stadium, which I have trouble respecting. Losing to them stinks.

Just a hunch, but maybe Robinson should look at some numbers. I respect that he manages by feel — I am not a stats guy — but ERA’s that have two numbers before the decimal point cannot be ignored.

Thom Loverro of The Wash. Times has a column with the same theme, isn’t it something how this seems to happen all the time?
