Something is different with the Marlins. They are 24-18 to start the season and, get this, they are spending money! They laid out $70 million for a six-year deal with Hanley Ramirez on Saturday - the richest contract in the club's history. He's one reason the Marlins are getting 5.3 runs per game against right-handed starters (19-13 mark). Their offense should be enough to get it done against Kansas City who is averaging just 3.8 per game against RHP. Yes, Greinke has been very good, but he's shown signs of cooling a bit of late. We like the Marlins here.
