Agree on Niese bit it’s a very close call - he hits well and staving off the Mets bullpen is always a good idea. My bigger issue is with Thole who seemed all proud of himself for “working a walk” - a walk that the Marlins pitcher was handing to him. Guess what Josh? When you are up with 2 out and the pitcher coming up behind you it’s okay to try to make contact with a ball two inches outside the strike zone. In fact it is imperative.
