Sure it's only been two games, but the Miami Marlins sure look like fish out of water so far. The pitching hasn't been terrible, but what should have been a potent lineup instead has hit like a bunch of rookies. The oh-so-terrible numbers in the 18 innings played so far:

- Seven hits: Jose Reyes had three of them

- Only one hit for extra bases: a double for John Buck

- Two walks: no walks on opening night

- Seven runners left on base

- Went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position

- The outs: 21 ground outs, 10 fly outs, 14 strikeouts

- No stolen bases, but Reyes was caught stealing.

- Only one run scored
