"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.

The next victims...

The Cubs are three outs away from winning the other spot in the NLCS, meaning that they're the team that will face the Fish. This should prove to be an interesting series. Maybe we'll be lucky (although it doesn't feel like the rotations will fall out this way) and get a Dontrelle Willis versus Matt Clement match-up. Now that it's turned out that those two pitchers were the key elements of last year's trade, it would be fun to see.

Sounds like the NLCS everyone predicted back in April... not. Actually, it's not even the NLCS that most people predicted a week ago, or even going into this weekend. A strange game this baseball is...

Hopefully the Marlins fans bought up all the tickets to the three games scheduled to take place in Miami so that we won't be subjected to an invasion like the folks in Atlanta have had for their "home" games. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), I'm going to miss the Marlins three potential home games in the NLCS as I'll be in Tallahassee this weekend, (likely futilely) cheering on the Hurricanes as they take on the Seminoles on the gridiron.
