Jose Fernandez will attempt to do the Wayans family proud. They're really the only people he's playing for, as the people of Miami are more concerned with Burn Notice and Dexter wrapping up and the long-term financial fall-out from the cessation of employment for so many in "the industry" than they are about a silly little baseball team that can't score runs.

Southpaw Brucie Chen will attempt to thwart the young Cuban northpaw. North versus South. A multi-ethnic metaphorical Civil War playing itself out on the battlefield of sport. This. Means. WAR.
