7.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 16 KLooking Ahead: The Marlins are done for the year. As for Ted and me, we'll be doing a few other things around here in October before going relatively dormant until pitchers and catchers report. We'll pop up from time to time to discuss the Winter Meetings, trades, free agent signings, etc., as well. In the meantime, you can find Ted on Ted Ginn & Tonic (his Miami Dolphins blog) and at 4th and Fail. I blog about jazz at Hot House. You can also find us at Twitter (Dave, Ted).
