True dat - they need as many wins now as they can get before they start games against the Central and West. That's when the trouble will start like it does every season.

How many wins do they need to get before the national press mentions the "7 year plan"?

I'm thrilled with these guys and I hope they get the support they deserve when they come home to play a series against Philly. I didnt think Bonafacio should've had the night off because I thought he had a monster game against tonights pitcher opening day. Anybody have an explanation? The pen has been amazing.

What a team. There will be bumps in the road for sure, but this team is out to an awesome start. Just think, if Maybin finds his niche and Ross and Hermida can be somewhat consistent this team will be almost unstoppable. Add in the solid pitching and the East is ours to lose.

Good point Chris, don't bench a guy who's hot. If Bonafacio goes in an O fer slump we'll all be blaming Freddi

Happy, happy, happy!!! Our boys struggled and still pulled it off. I'm baffled by ESPN for not even saying 'HI' to the Fish for being #1, but that's ok. ESPN is a joke anyway.

I'll be at the Phillies series coming up, dare ya to be there!!

GO FISH!!

Yeah. I'm sure Bonafacio will have his struggles but he owned that pitcher in the opener. He was 4-5 plus 3 stolen bases and most off Lannan.

When Cody gets hot, look out! Man's on a roll, just amazing. Emilio had about 6-8 strikeouts in the past two days and needs to lay off the high fastball up in the zone. The opposition figured him out now he has to make the adjustment. The radio announcer said he was working with the hitting coach. A leadoff hitter has to have a good OBP or they will move him all the way down to 8th. That's just baseball. Go Marlins!

I'm thinking Bonifacio got the night off for being 0 for his last 10. With 8 strikeouts. You think that might have had something to do with it? He needed a rest.

He needs to learn to take a walk. The only way he's going to keep his OBP at an acceptable level is if he hits well over .300 all year. And I don't see that happening. Prove me wrong though, Emilio. I hope you do.

I am concerned about Nolasaco. He hasn't looked good in any of his starts.

The Marlins stole that one. The 2-2 pitch to Uggla was definitely a strike.

Absolutely agree. Bonafacio got everything started against Lannan on Opening Day. He should have been in there leading off. He's cooled off the past several days but facing someone he's had previous success against usually good medicine. Don't understand it.

We will take a win any way we get that big W. I agree that our starting pitching has been our key. The bullpen has surprised me. The Marlins keep winning and rest of the divison keeps losing, let the Fish build that lead to double digits in the lost coulumn. The heck with ESPN when you have the MLB Network. ESPN is so enamored with the Jankees and the Metropolitans. Oh my Red Sox.

I thought so too on first view, the pitch hit the catcher straight in the glove. Replay showed he was set up outside. A pitcher will usually get that call but we got a break with what turns out was the right call.

ESPN guys were too busy slobbering over the new Yankee stadium. The Phillies series will be huge!! Largest lead in baseball after 10 games. I have the MLB ticket and I have watched all the teams in our division and NOBODY has the pitching we do. Even Pinto pitched a scoreless inning. You know things are going good when that happens.

If my memory serves me right a few years ago Nolasco was the 4th man in the rotation. He had a great year last year and got promoted. J J is #1 now Volstad #2 Sanchez and Nolasco are tied for #3 and Miller is a scary #5. Lets see how the whole year goes and then we will know who is where? Most teams would be happy with JJ and Volstad and a servicable trio. We have the makings of something huge if we can keep them?
