Overview: It was a disappointing week as the Marlins dropped two of three to both the Braves and the Phillies
Positives: The starting pitching has been great, notching five quality starts. Anibal Sanchez has looked terrific and Josh Johnson has of course been the boss. Not only have they usually been keeping the team in the game but they have lessened the load on the bullpen
Negatives: Bad news, bullpen still not very good despite the lower load. Also both lefties in the pen are now gone. Dan Meyer was DFA'd and Renyel Pinto was placed on the DL to to soreness
in Marlins fans hearts his hip. Also, besides being perfect game'd by Doc, the offense has remained dormant. Mike Stanton where are you?
Line of the Week: Going a little out of the box, but to illustrate how good Anibal Sanchez has been, below are his stats from the month of May
6 GS, 4-0, 1.93 ERA, 35 K's
Highlight of the Week: Dan Uggla made a weird tough play when he threw out Ryan Howard from in the hole of short right field.
Looking Ahead: The Fish start a four game series here against the Brewers tomorrow afternoon. On the weekend they will play three in New York against the Mets.
