Negatives: The Fish were swept by the Phillies and Bob Davidson. Even worse, Davidson still won't admit he made the incorrect call. Even though the ball took bounces only in fair territory before and beyond the bag, he believes that in mid air the ball ventured into foul ground and came back. Awesome.
Also, a bit overdue but a Marlins bloggers' favorite, Rick VandenHurk was traded to the Orioles for Will Ohman. And Oh man he hasn't been much of an improvement to the club. Not exactly the end to the #FreeHurk movement we wanted.
Line of the Week: Anibal Sanchez ensured a Marlins victory by not allowing the bullpen to pitch.

Highlight of the Week: Hustling Hanley delivered something I haven't seen before, a shortstop venturing out nearly to the warning track to retrieve a ball, and throw out a runner. If it was Derek Jeter, you would have already seen this play 547 times. Hat tip to Hanley for his walkoff hit Saturday night.
Looking Ahead: The Marlins hit the road for three games in both Washington and Cincinnati
