Henderson Alvarez has been a bright spot for the Marlins this year, posting a 10-6 record with a 2.75 ERA and earning himself an All-Star appearance. His 26th start was not so good, however.

Alvarez left today’s start against the Mets in the third inning after showing apparent discomfort and decreased velocity. A few moments ago it was announced that he has a left oblique strain. He’s day to day.

The Marlins, who in the past couple of weeks have at least flirted with the wild card a bit, are now 6.5 games back of a playoff spot. Losing Alvarez for even a start or two wouldn’t do much for their already fading chances.

    Ah Craigster, your optimism must be single malt induced. Fading chances? Old Colonel Buendia would have been complete invisible under his tree by now. Even the horned toads are disappearing less quickly. If you still see Feesh “chances,” you probably see dead people and ivory billed woodpeckers.

    Are you well read in Spanish, too? Bet Craig would like to see a few people dead, especially if they are from Philly.

      Si, si. My novela favorita en espanol es Cien Anos de Soledad, pero Nadie Nada Nunca por Juan Jose Saer, Los Siete Locos por Roberto Arlt y Pedro Param por Juan Rulfo son proximos segundos. Me gusta tambien la poesia de Jorge Luis Borges y Miguel Hernandez.

      Porque?
