New Pecking Order?

The Marlins and Nationals are scoring runs by the bunches again.

It is 7-7 in the 8th.

What I find interesting is the Fish used Logan Kensing in the 6th and Taylor Tankersley in the 7th.

I thought Kensing had the 8th inning role.

Has something changed or is this just a one game thing due to something unknowable in Girardi's brain?

Is Randy Messenger now the 8th inning guy, and, by extension, the new back-up closer?

I know the Fish are doing better than expected, but that should not stop them from trading Joe Borowski to a contender.

Heck, his success so far means the Fish could be seeing a legitimate prospect in return.
