Here are three things we learned from Atlanta's 3-2 victory over Miami on Tuesday, before a subdued crowd at Marlins Park: 1. Just wait until Kris Medlen recaptures that late-season mojo of last year From a distance, Medlen's cumulative numbers after two starts (1-1, 1.50 ERA) look superb. But he has yet to find a true groove with strikeout-to-walk ratio (45) or WHIP (1.42). And let's be honest, the Marlins' lineup even with Giancarlo Stanton might be the least intimidating in all of baseball. Very little power. Marginal speed. Full of slap-hitting assets. Ugh. That said, it's not Medlen's job to draft or sign the Miami roster, and he didn't fill out the Marlins' Tuesday lineup, either. He could only control the pace of his pitches and the tempo of his delivery; and from my vantage point, he appeared to be looser and more relaxed than last Thursday's losing duel with Phillies co-ace Cliff Lee. Plus, the temperature at Marlins Park was roughly 45 degrees warmer than last week...
