On May 26th, the Marlins behind Anibal Sanchez's complete game shutout swept the World Champion Giants and moved to within 1 game of first place.
They were 10 games over .500 and my prediction that they would win the Wild Card looked pretty good at the 1/3 mark of the season.
The Marlins have lost 18 of their last 21 games.
We are more than halfway through June and they have a grand total of one win this month.
They got swept by the Phillies.
And of this writing they are in last place.
They went from 10 games over .500 to 5 games UNDER .500 in less than a month.
I wrote last Sunday that Edwin Rodriguez's job might in trouble.
Now I can imagine him being fired in mid game.
Something needs to be done in Florida and firing the hitting coach ain't it.
I'd like to see the Marlins get a quality innings eater... or a dominating reliever...
Instead I think Rodriguez is getting a pink slip.
