"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

D-Train Back on track

Dontrelle Willis pitched well out of the bullpen for the Marlins last night, in their exciting 3-2 game one win over the Yankees. However, when I made my series predictions, including that Dontrelle would win the Series MVP award, I assumed that Dontrelle would get a start or two in addition to a relief appearance. It now appears that Dontrelle might not get a start, thus making it very difficult for him to be the MVP of the Series (has a middle reliever ever won or deserved to be the series MVP? I doubt it).

It was a great start to what looks like could be a great series last night... we'll see how tonight goes...
