mmmmm


Sorry for the late post, but I was running around today.  I had to mention how Jose Fernandez was throwing stinky cheddar and wiffle balls against the Braves last night. Click the bottom image for highlights of Fernandez burning down Atlanta (too soon?). Three things about Jose:

1. This guy needs a nickname ASAP. El Sucio, La Flama Marron, Joey Frisbees, Widow’s Wail, Liquid Swords, or anything to describe this dude’s RIDICULOUS repertoire. El Duque with a 100 MPH fastball is dead on balls accurate.

2. As much as I love watching this guy, I cannot wait until the Marlins gut their team and trade him out of the NL East. Dealing with him, Stanton, and Bryce Harper for the next 15 years is purely terrifying for any Mets fan.

3. You knew this guy had to be special if the Marlins didn’t keep him in the Minors as long as possible so they could have organizational control over him for years to come in his prime.  Recently, I was lucky enough to get MLB.TV, so needless to say the Marlins are appointment watching once every five days.  Guys like this are the reason we watch sports.  We just NEED to get him a nickname.
