Marlins continue to search for answers after another shutout loss

Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly told reporters on Wednesday night following the team’s 1-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays that he couldn’t remember a time when he had been in this kind of situation. A seven-game losing streak, a ninth shutout of the season, 10 wins and 31 losses and the worst start in Marlins franchise history.

It all sounds like a really bad Stephen King novel and there is some truth to the situation down in South Florida being a horror story. From a team that looked like it could compete with anyone during the Grapefruit League in March to being compared to some of the worst teams in Major League history.
