Is this great drafting, or great player development in the minors?

Probably both, no? They had the foresight to draft Jose Fernandez 14th overall, and only needed to develop him for a 138 innings in the minors before he set the National League on fire.

"I don't want to preach about velocity," Heaney said. "Velocity, it doesn't matter. Some guys throw 100 and it looks like 90. Some guys can throw 90 and it looks like 100. It's all about what the hitter perceives. If you've got good movement against any hitter, they say 90 with movement is going to be a lot harder to hit than 100 straight.

"You've just got to work in and out and throw strikes down in the zone, and let your fastball work for you. It doesn't really matter how hard you throw."


Amazing quote from a soon-to-be Major League pitcher.

It still feels to me that the Marlins are playing with house money so I'm thinking that they might make things interesting come September. The Nationals sure aren't setting the world on fire after their brief outburst last week-ish. The Braves are showing signs of creaking lately. Interesting division right now.

Close. Miami taxpayers' money.

Precisely why I avoid Dade County as much as possible.

Marlins will do well to win 75 games.

Throw in Young Masters Steinbrenners' money and pretty soon you're soaking in so much free unearned moolah you can't be bothered to care about some crappy ballclub.

Although predictably from a guy who can't touch 100. :-)

Also a lefty -- seems they've always been able to get by with "mediocre" stuff more easily than righties.
