Overview: The Marlins won two of three in Chicago before an emphatic four game sweep of the Mets for a much needed 6-1 week.
Positives: Winning. The club was really struggling (especially scoring runs) and needed a big week. Finally, they jump-started the offense scoring 24 runs over the last three games. Chris Coghlan and Cameron Maybin must have finally started hearing Mike Stanton's footsteps as they've both stepped it up. Also the starting pitchers have done a good job of getting deep into games and giving the club great chances to win.
Negatives: Not too much to gripe about. Sunday's bullpen effort wasn't that great, but that's about it.
Line of the Week: Time to reward Gaby Sanchez. He had another great series against the Mets
9-17, 2. RBI, 6, R, 2 2B, 1 HR
Highlight of the Week: The Marlins had three nice outfield assists this weekend, but only one nailed a runner at the plate. Cody Ross denies Ike Davis.
Looking Ahead: The Marlins have a busy week. The wrap up the homestand with two against Arizona. Then they go on the road for two with the Cardinals and three in Chicago to face the White Sox
