The Marlins are enjoying another middling season. I thought they might be a sleeper but despite the efforts or Marcell Ozuna this team is well off the pace in the National League.
I do feel like there could be some improvement though as when you look at the numbers, especially on offense it feels like it should add up to more.
Edinson Volquez is the ultimate Jekyll & Hyde pitcher. He threw that no hitter last month and including it has a stretch of three starts where he gave up a total of 6 hits and 1ER over 22IP.
Since then he has made 4 starts and failed to get though 6 innings in three of them. It is very hard to predict what you are going to get.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cards would be in much better shape if it was just the struggling Cubs they were chasing…but there is surprising Milwaukee too. I am not at all surprised about the Cards performance as this is just an average team to me.
There is not a player in their lineup that you have to be extra careful with and while everyone is hitting bombs they are still trying to fundamental you to death.
I wish it was working but it isn’t.
On the mound the pitching has been average to below as well. Mike Leake has put up the best numbers in the rotation but he is no ace. The bullpen has been way more shaky than desired.
Brett Cecil was a big offseason acquisition as they tried to follow the trends but he has not been very good. He has 4 blown saves and the groups as a whole has little “automatic” to it.

Free Miami Marlins vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
I can’t really explain Leake so it makes it hard for me to recommend STL. Volquez is a mystery too but I definitely like the MIA lineup a lot more. The Marlins have good value here.

I like the total too but let’s get on Miami to win on the road. They evened up the series last night.
