Programming note: posting was very light in August, and for that we apologize. We will return to our Mets-hating form in September, and all 10 of our readers can expect near-daily posting. Please accept our heartfelt apologies for our lackluster performance this month. A Marlins blog should not be as disappointing as the actual Marlins. With that said, below is an abbreviated Week in Review.
Overview: The Marlins took 2 of 3 from the Mets before dropping 2 of 3 to the Padres.
Positives: Chris Coghlan and Hanley continued their August tears, both have topped 45 hits for the month of August. Sean West contributed two quality starts this week, perhaps he is putting it together at the right time.
Negatives: Did the Marlins really lose 2 of 3 to San Diego? Ugh... Chris Volstad was demoted, having finally broken Fredi's patience. I'm missing Nick Johnson in the lineup, Ross Gload can only do so much.
Looking Ahead: The Fish host Atlanta for four games before spending Labor Day weekend in DC.
