The Marlins have now gone 19 games without a starting pitcher recording win and although there have been a couple blown saves and some poor run support, it's mainly the pitchers fault. The starters ERA for the past week was just a shade under 6.00. The defense also kicked the ball around a bit with the six errors leading to six unearned runs. The offense is slumping and in true fashion six of the seven home runs this week were solo shots. All of this adds up to a team that has lost 13 of it's last 17 and is fading fast. The key to a turnaround will have to be starting pitching. This series in Colorado we have our top three going and it's time they end this drought. This is easily the worst SPESH report to date.
