Florida Marlins DesigNate Robertson
As many of you have pointed out to me already, Nate Robertson has finally been released by the Marlins. Our Hero was thought to have an easier road ahead of him in the NL this year, but still was rocked around by the senior circut, going 6-8 with a 5.47 ERA, and 1.50 WHIP in 100.1 innings.
The final straw came against the Rockies yesterday as Nate was lit up for 8 runs (7 earned), 6 hits, and 2 walks in 5 innings pitched. No word on who will be dumb enough to give him a shot next.
Um...you know...we ARE already paying his salary. And...well, we COULD use another starting pitcher. Wouldn't it be fun...
Naaaaa...good luck, Nate. You'll always have a home here.
