Josh Johnson will miss his last start

Oct 1, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

If a starter on a non-contender is scratched from his final start, does the pencil on the lineup card still make a sound?

 

So much talk coming in to the season about Jose Reyes, Heath Bell, Ozzie Guillen, new uniforms and a new stadium, but the prospects of the Marlins in 2012 had so much to do with Josh Johnson being the kind of ace that everyone figured he could be. The season: 8-14 with a 3.41 ERA and 1.280 WHIP in 31 starts.

See ya next year.

    It is very hard to care about anything related to the Fish. (Sorry, O.G.). Looking back at all the projections that had them 2nd to the Fillies, etc. It’s sad. Can’t say, “Good luck, next year,” because, as a Nats fan, I HATE THE MARLINS. Still, it’s sad.

    Buehrle had a very Mark Buehrle-type year. 13-13 3.74ERA 1.17WHIP 202IP.
    Dude took the ball every 5th day, shut his mouth and did his job. It’s a pity his effort is lost in this mess of a season.

    8-14 wit a 3.41 ERA. That tells you quite a bit as much about the lame job his teammates did as it does about his pitching. There were lots of workmanly starts wasted this year, and not just by JJ by any means, due to an acute allergy to driving in runs.

    Just about time to put away the new logo’d Marlins shirts for the winter. It will be nice not to have to explain to the people in NC that I am not supporting Miami’s little known roller derby team.
