    Marlins have a decision to make on to whom to offer arbitration....

    Willis or Cabrera?

    If they pick Cabrera....is Willis worth a look? I say YES - he's not having the best year this year, but he's only 25, and we KNOW what kind of pitcher he can be.

    Fay thinks both Votto and Bruce will get a call in September.

    Players like that aren't non-tendered, they are traded if they are not affordable.

    That was certainly a strange play.

    But a very good play by Phillips.

    Wow...that was a ride on the tilt-a-whirl.

    Nice recovery by BPhil.

    I heart the overgrown monkey on the pitching mound.

    Phillips saved at least 1 run by getting that throw from Valentin that would have went into center.

    I like BPhils sense of humor. When he came up to throw without the ball on Willis' hit he made a show of throwing air. And then, of course, the big giant smile.

    Gameday froze during Jacobs' at bat. Update?

    Sad when Aaron Harang has the best at-bat during an inning.

    Can Ellison even hit it past the pitcher?

    Good point.

    Looks like Willis is pitching to the level of competition, though he's not striking anyone out.
