Miami Marlins vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

I'm not excited to get behind Joe Boyle and his issues, as he's been terrible this season both in terms of giving up runs and with his control. However, Sixto Sanchez has had major issues himself the last few years, and his limited sample size this season doesn't help his case. The bottom line is the Oakland Athletics have won 6 straight games, and you know they're on cloud nine right now in terms of confidence. The Marlins aren't winning, and it appears they're in the middle of a fire sale. The A's aren't supposed to be good, but they're in a better position than the Marlins. Give me the Athletics and the cheap price.
