Could be a playoff preview...do the Marlins keep their win streak alive in hostile territory?

Does Loria make the trip and sit near the dugout?

Who has the biggest ego, LaRussa, Loria or Girardi?

Can a team with 4 recently DFA's players (Weaver, P. Wilson, Vizcaino, J. Sosa) actually go somewhere?

Is Mark Mulder done?

. Louis IPHRERBBKHRSeason ERA M. Mulder (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/6393) 1.2 6 5 5 3 1 7.14

Looks like the season's over for Mulder.

Wouldn't be surprised to see David Wells end up in St. Louis, they've already gotten decent results from Jeff Weaver.

Meanwhile, the Marlins are in good shape for another victory as they march on.

1.5 games back and Cincy is losing...SD wins and they're in the lead though, with Marlins still 1.5 back

This is absolutely hilarious.

Go Fish.

Go Fish. I get to see this team at Miller Park next weekend and I really can't wait to check these guys out live. It sounds like they play an exciting brand of baseball.

The Fish are an amazing group of young talent, there is nothing not to like about this team except loria. Since '03 they have been my second team for beating both the cubs and yankees.

Managers of the Year are pretty much a lock now with Leyland and Girardi.

Yeah, definitely. And to think that assbag Loria might get rid of Girardi after this year...

Saying this particular contest would be a "big game" back four months ago would've been preposterous, but sure enough, it was a big game. The Marlins are the Cleveland Indians of "Major League" this year. I think some people here were predicting 120 or more losses for Florida in an anti-Loria thread at the start of the season in response to him gutting the team. And now they're in the playoff hunt.

Girardi has to be a lock for NL Manager of the Year. Leyland will probably get the AL MOY, but I'm a little less sure about that than I once was.

Gardenhire and Torre will get some votes...not sure if anyone in the media even remembers the A's manager, but they've done it without Harden for the majority of the season, a subpar Street and Eric Chavez struggling.

It'll be pretty funny watching Leyland accept MOTY from a golf course in October.

After tonight, I wouldn't be all too confident in getting the Metrodome ready for October baseball.

For the 2nd year in a row, the Gophers and Vikings might not have any conflicts to worry about.
