Week In Review

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Overview: The Marlins had a win and a rainout versus the cowardly Mets. Then they dropped two games against the Cubs. This weekend they won two of three against the Rays to finish the week 3-3.
Positives: The main upside to this week was that Javier Vazquez miraculously looks like a viable starting pitcher again. Also, LoMo and Stanton continue their hot streaks at the plate.
Negatives: Huge bummer on Saturday when news came down that Josh Johnson is being placed on the 15-day disabled list. They are optimistic that he will return the day he's eligible, but you just never know. In the mean time, the Jay Buente Experience didn't fare so well today.
Line of the Week: A tip of the cap to Javier Vazques for that Saturday performance, but this week' honor goes to the bullpen, for tossing six innings of scoreless relief to beat the Mets on Monday. Burke Badenhop also recorded the game winning hit and RBI.

Highlight of the Week: Mike Stanton hit three #MONSTERDONGs this week, but none more impressive than this 465-foot blast to tie the game in New York. Keep in my mind the wind was blowing in at around 16 mph that evening.
Looking Ahead: The Fish have an off-day tomorrow as they head west for three in both San Francisco and Los Angeles.
