I'm not about to panic with a 6 game lead on September 8th, but the Florida Marlins still scare me. The Marlins have reeled off three straight wins, outscoring Washington 24-7. Now I realize we're talking about Washington, but Florida is finding ways to win while Burnett and Beckett are pitching less than spectacular.
The Braves and Marlins square off for 6 of the last 9 games of the season. If that doesn't spell excitement, I don't know what will.
I'm sure the Braves would like those games to be meaningless, but something tells me we'll be biting our fingernails down the stretch!
