Positives: Josh Johnson is on a roll to start the season, his early stats are phenomenal. More surprising has been the bullpen, which leads the majors in ERA (1.89) and have a 2.0 K/BB (36/18). Logan Morrison has been on a tear to start the year, with a slash line of .320/.424/.660 in 59 PAs.
Negatives: Ted pointed out that the Marlins have resembled the Dolphins on Sunday: always losing. They are trying a bit too hard to make us forget about the lockout. Emilio Bonifacio somehow has 28 PAs in 14 games. Javier Vazquez is not looking hot so far (14 runs, 11 earned in 13.1 innings, 11 BB, 6 K). Omar Infante has been perfectly fine so far, but his Sunday was pretty disappointing, posting a -.351 WPA (win probability added) in the loss.
Line of the Week: Josh Johnson's line from Wednesday:
7.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 9 K
Highlight of the Week: Greg Dobbs wins the week for his bases-loaded 2 RBI single on Friday night that gave the Fish the lead for good.
Looking Ahead: The Marlins have Monday off, then start a nine-game homestand with series against the Pirates and Rockies.
