Week In Review: Spring Training Edition Volume 1

Sunday, March 7, 2010

Overview: The Fish opened with a blowout win over the 'Canes, then won their first three in Grapefruit League play before losing on Sunday.

  • (Wed) Defeated the University of Miami 19-3
  • (Thu) Defeated Washington 10-4
  • (Fri) Defeated the New York Mets 4-3
  • (Sat) Defeated St. Louis 6-5
  • (Sun) Lost to St. Louis 7-4
Positives: Winning is always nice. Righty starters Rick Vandenhurk and Chris Volstad each threw two scoreless innings, while striking out a couple in their debuts.
Negatives: Lefty starters Sean West and Andrew Miller had control problems in their two innings each on Sunday. Also, John Baker has been out with a sore arm, which may or may not be contributing to his decrease in Twitter updates.
Highlight of the Week: Top prospect Mike Stanton belted a 2-run opposite field homer to break a tie game in the 10th inning to help the Marlins to victory on Friday. Tip of the cap to Hanley's 3-run bomb in the 1st inning of the first game though.
Line of the Week: Roster hopeful Clay Hensley tossed a brilliant three innings in his Spring Training debut.

3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K's

Looking Ahead: The Fish have eight games this week (hooray split squads!). Opponents will feature the usual (Mets, Nats, Cards) along with the Spring's lone games versus Boston and Tampa Bay on Tuesday and Saturday respectively.

(This year we will have a rotating category as a bonus for each week, up first is the Tweet of the Week)

Tweet of the Week: Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison on the joys of spring,
"Playing the Cards again today @ 105pm. This time we're away though - long trip ALL the way to the 1st base dugout!"
