The Miami Marlins fell to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday by a score of 7-1 as Josh Johnson had one of the worst starts of his career. The loss dropped the Marlins to 2-4 on the year and came in a game that was expected to be a pitchers duel with Roy Halladay starting for the Phillies. Joey Cora managed the team in the first of five games that Ozzie Guillen will miss due to his suspension.
Johnson allowed six runs on eleven hits in three and two third innings to fall to 0-2. It took 83 pitches for the Marlins’ ace to get those eleven outs and he was unable to make it out of the fourth inning. Johnson who is known for his strikeout ability only tallied one K in the game and was not able to fool any of the Philadelphia batters. Chad Gaudin saw his first action of the season going two and a third scoreless innings in which he struck out two. Ryan Webb pitched the final two innings allowing a run on a solo homerun by Carlos Ruiz.
In the first inning, the Marlins ma...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Phils explodes for seven runs in support of a five-hit effort by their ace Roy Halladay, as they defeated the Marlins, 7-1.
The Marlins took the lead in the second as, with a runner on third, and with one man out, Josh Johnson hits an RBI ground out, 4-3, knocking in Omar Infante, who had earlier doubled, then moved up to third base on John Buck’s fly out to right, giving...
Phillies' All Star 2nd Baseman Chase Utley is still in Arizona rehabbing his knees. He will remain there until at least April 23rd.
The Phillies found some offense last night, nearly matching their total run output of their first 4 games with a 7-run outburst. It keyed the Phillies to a 7-1 victory over their division rival Florida Marlins, and improved them to 2-3 on the season...

The Miami Marlins suspended manager Ozzie Guillen on Tuesday for five games for comments he made about Cuban leader Fidel Castro that appeared in a Time magazine article."I respect Fidel Castro," Guillen said in the article. "You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that [expletive] is still here."The Venezuelan...
He is placed in an unenviable position, filling in for a player deemed one of the top second basemen in the league and a perennial all-star when healthy. Sure, expectations are low, or at least reserved for a minor league prospect under this type of situation. Hold down the fort in the field and the team will make do with whatever happens at the plate. Hey, if he can get on base...
Andy Martino of the Daily News may have opened up a can of worms this morning with a couple of quotes in which he matter of factly states the following:
As the Daily News reported in February, the Mets hope that Wright will justify another multi-year commitment, and remain the face of their franchise for years. The team’s outlook on Wright differs dramatically from their view...
In light of his comments about Fidel Castro (of which opinions have varied about how disgusting they were, but all falling on that side of the spectrum), the Miami Marlins have suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five games, effective starting with tomorrow's game against the Phillies. Guillen will miss the remaining two games against the Phillies, along with the first full series...
The official fallout from Ozzie Guillen’s expression of love for former Cuban President Fidel Castro has begun.
The Miami Marlins have suspended Guillen for five games, without pay.
That may not be good enough, though. Fans and members of the Latino community in Miami are calling for him to be fired.
Here is the controversial excerpt from the TIME Magazine interview...
The start of the 2012 season has not gone well for the Phillies. And that is putting it nicely. Losing 3 out of the first 4 games with the ugliest one coming Monday afternoon at the Home Opener has many people worried about this team.
It could just be a slow start…or it may be a glimpse of the future Phillies. Let us all hope it is just a slow start.
The Phillies offense wasted...
