The Marlins had a feel good victory last night, but they’re still not a team I trust. The Marlins are watching their season fall apart quickly, they’re injured as all hell and it won’t be long before some key players are traded. The Padres played two games yesterday and don’t live up to their prices as often as they should, but they’re head and shoulders the better team here. It’s Padres or pass for me.
