*3 Star MLB Play of Day* It isn't very often that I'm willing to back a bad team as a favorite, but I make rare exceptions. One of those exceptions is when an absolutely dominating starting pitcher is on the mound against a mediocre or poor starter. That is precisely the case here. Washington is definitely the better overall team, but starting pitching means so much in baseball today. I would argue that Jose Fernandez is the best young starter in baseball, and he has been lights out at home. He has a 1.29 ERA at home this year. Dan Haren has struggled all year. He has a 5.02 ERA on the season. The Marlins are a perfect 9-0 in Hernandez's last 9 home starts. The Marlins are 5-0 in his last 5 home starts as a favorite. The Nationals are 0-6 in Haren's last 6 starts as an underdog. A 21-0 angle backs this play. Take the Marlins.
