Summary: The Marlins took two of three from the A's and Rangers, their first series victories in (what seems like) forever.
Positives: Hey, they're winning again! That alone is sufficient.
Negatives: Anibal Sanchez probably should have been on the NL All-Star team, but I can't get too mad about it. Think of it as the universe getting even with the Marlins for all those years their lone (required) representative was far from worthy (I'm looking at you, Ryan Dempster). Also, Emilio Bonifacio can't spell his teammate's (very common) name. Don't worry, though, it's not like he wears his name on the back of his jersey every night or anything...
Line of the Week: Hanley Ramirez had perhaps his best hitting performance of the season on Saturday night in Texas:
Looking Ahead: The Fish kick off a three-game set at home against the Phillies tonight, then host the Astros for four games.
