July 13th MLB Picks: Washington Nationals @ Miami Marlins
Date: Saturday, March 13th, 7:15 ET
Location: Marlins Park, Miami, FL
Nationals vs. Marlins On TV: FOX
Washington Nationals (Dan Haren) +118
Miami Marlins (Jose Fernandez) -128
The Marlins are now 21-17 over the course of their last 38 games, and that’s a heck of a lot better than even some of the best teams in the bigs. Perhaps Jeffrey Loria knew what he was doing when he blew this team apart and let it grow with prospects… (We doubt it, but it’s nice to see the Fish playing good baseball!) One of those top prospects, 20-year old RHP Jose Fernandez is going to be on the bump for this one. Fernandez is the only Marlins pitcher who has been in the rotation for any substantial period of time to boast a winning record for his team, as he has guided the Fish to a 9-8 mark in his first 17 starts of the year. That alone has him deserving of being an All-Star, and the truth of the matter is that he would have to be up for consideration for the team whether baseball required there to be a rep from every team on the roster in the bigs or not. Fernandez is rightfully favored in this one over RHP Dan Haren and the Nationals. Haren has been a disaster all season long, and there’s only going to be so much longer that that Nats put up with his 4-10 record and his ERA in the sixes. The Fish should be laying at least -150 in this game, but because they’re the Marlins, the oddsmakers aren’t giving them the benefit of the doubt, and we’re going to take full advantage of that fact.
