April 11 Scores


Fish Swept, Lose to Atlanta 8-0

Braves' Gattis hits homer into the pool. Valaika plays 1B for the
first time in his life, gets an error. Marlins now 1-8. Redmond says
"It's snowballing a little bit"....

Again attendance was miniscule, but far from being surprising, it
signals a return of a hearty South Florida tradition...

...and disgruntlement finds new means of expression in our
multi-cultural land...

At least the outfield is nice and green...

More Schedule Observations

---The 2013 Marlins play their longest stretch without a day off from
September 6th through the 25th. Their second longest breakless
stretch happens from July 19 to August 4.

---The Marlins this year finish up with the West Coast teams
relatively quickly - their last scheduled game against a team on the
West Coast is against San Francisco on June 23.

---The Fish finish with Cincinatti even faster - their last game
against the Reds this year is on May 16.

---On the other hand, 126 days separate the Marlins first meeting with
the Cubs (a Miami series ending April 28) and their second series (in
Chicago starting on September 2). Atlanta's two meetings with the
Cubs are separated by an even longer period of time - their first
series ends April 7, their second series starts September 20.
