Why the Marlins pulled Fernandez after 5 is absolutely beyond me; what are they "preserving" him for?  A young arm, his first MLB game, and he was bloody magnificent.  The garbage they had in the bullpen couldn't carry his shoes.  The announced attendance figure of 29K+ was a joke; if they had 20,000 in the stands, it was a lot.

Wink , Jose Fernandez has filthy, nasty stuff. They were a bit cautious on Sunday. One day you might just be saying you saw his first major league start in person. They 'll win 60 games and he might just  win 15  of them. Only 20 years old. Scary.

Easily the Marlins. Astros have one player with any talent aand are well on their way to breaking the all time strikeout record. They strikeout a minimum of 10 times a night. Maybe one of the worst teams in Baseball history. Marlins will score far more runs thn them and win at least 10 more games. Astros cosuld lose 110-115 easliy( or more). Altuve is the only talnet on the team. Marlins are horible after their usual houseclaning but there is no comparison between these two. Stros shut out by Joe Saunders last night. It doesnt get much worse than that. Bud Norris your ace ? Ouch

mets are loaded with very good young arms in the minors   i bought the minor league package to watch the vegas games on the internet  one to watch is Rafael Montero in aa  i love the start of the season so far but it still will be a long year.  the future is coming wheeler,harvey, niese, gee and another young arm
I've been watching from afar.  I'm shocked and pleasantly suprised that Sam can make intellegent and coherent posts.  You're from Hazelton aren't you?  Take a road trip to Binghamton to see Montero pitch.  It's a great ball park and very easy to get to off of i-81.  Gee has been a HUGE over-achiever in the bigs if his time in Binghamton meant anything, it wasn't pretty, and Rafael Montero has been good, his first start being of the 2 hit 7 inning variety.

...or not so easily as the Astros scored 16 runs last night.  The Marlins might not score 16 in April.

I give the edge to the Astros as they appear to have more young players with upside.  Stanton may never see a pitch to hit with runners in scoring position.

unlike most young power pitchers, Harvey has impeccable mechanics.  He does it effortlessly.  Will he go 10 years without an injury, that's not practical, but he certainly won't break down 2 years in like some of the phenoms of the last 15 years.

Just curious. Besides Altuve which Astros have any upside, Not much in the minors either.

That's two days in a row they pounded the baseball -- and Altuve still hasn't stolen a base.  doh

http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=330410112

Now they've scored more runs than the Marlins will score through May.

I'm also a BIG Brad Peacock fan.  He really looked good when he was with the Nats, then did nothing with the A's.  With the Astros, he will get an opportunity to pitch every fifth day and we'll see if he can regain what he showed while with Washington.

Of course they are still odds on to finish last in that division.

An interesting rumor fresh from The Daily News:

According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, the Mets "continue to monitor" Giancarlo Stanton.

"It's a safe assumption that many other teams are doing the same. To acquire Stanton from the Marlins, the Mets would surely have to fork over top pitching prospect Zack Wheeler and top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud, and maybe even one additional youngster. Martino also believes that the Mets have looked into acquiring star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez from the Rockies."

A trade like that would end any glimmer of hope for this year with the sad back of the rotation that they have, but a stud outfielder and the outstanding pitching prospects a year or two away makes a lot of sense for the long run -- and the "glimmer" is just that even with Wheeler and D'Arnaud joining the mix next month.

Carlos Gonzalez ? One of the best in the game. Did not know he was on the market. He'll command huge money. And I wouldnt give up Wheeler----Harvey/Wheeler/Niese is an imposing top of the rotation (hopefully). No clue what the Rockies would want for Gonzalez, but it would be a lot and then you gotta pay him. Cant see either deal happening

it's not about this year nor should it be.  This team resembles 1984 too much, the only difference is there's no past his prime George Foster.  They'll struggle this year, next year they MIGHT be able to contend for the second wild card spot, but it's all about 2015.  84 they struggled, 85 they would have garnered a wild card actually and 86, well we all know the greatness that was 86.

Its doubtful they will win 50 games. Peacock is horrible by the way
