Overview: The Marlins took two of three from both the Nationals and the Astros. They are now 5-4 on the season.
Positives: Winning series are always nice. Gaby Sanchez has continued his nice start and LoMo has also done well at the plate. Finally, the bullpen has been unusually reliable thus far.
Negatives: The Fish had a chance to sweep both series and were unable to do so. The series finale against the Nats with JJ on the mound was especially frustrating. And the fact of the matter is that the team opened up with nine games against three of the NL's worst teams and could only muster five wins.
Line of the Week: Tough one to choose, but we will give it Greg Dobbs for week as a whole. He's been solid thus far as a lefty pinch hitter and performed admirably in ghis spot start Saturday night
5-9, 1 HR, 3 RBI
Highlight of the Week: A number of good plays in the outfield to choose from this week. We will go with Chris Coghlan's nifty grab in centerfield Thursday night.
Looking Ahead: The club is off tomorrow, then will continue the road trip with three in both Atlanta and Philadelphia.
