    A very tough opening week for the Fish. A very Marlins-like start.

    Troubling is not the struggles of our bullpen but more so that Mattingly seems unsure of what he has there and has no defined roles beyond the closer.

    Gotta move guys around in the batting order - have to move Marcell out of the 2 spot - he is not a 2-hole hitter - he is much better in the middle of the lineup. Its time to give a few guys some days off and start the likes of Chris Johnson and Ichiro a time or two this week to give guys rest physically and mentally to try to get them back on track.

    this should be a very successful 3-game series before heading home for 7 more games against NL east rivals
