Overview: The Marlins took two of three from the Phillies before dropping two of three to the Mets. They are officially out of contention in the NL East, and would need to win their final 6 games to have a shot at the Wild Card.
Positives: With the season seemingly over, why toy with this category? I'm on a time crunch, so I'll be brief.
Negatives: Apparently Leo Nunez will still be with the Marlins in 2010. Don't toy with me, Marlins front office. Josh Johnson is either sick or hung over (I'm guessing the former).
Highlight of the Week: Two words: Brad Lidge.
Line of the Week: Anibal Sanchez was lights out against the Phillies on Tuesday. His line:
8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 KLooking Ahead: The Marlins finish off their season with series in Atlanta and Philadelphia. If things go well, they could eliminate the Braves from playoff contention this week.
