Overview: The Marlins won three out of four in Chicago.
Positives: Scheduling. The Marlins played have played eight games in a row against bottom feeders Chicgao and Houston and won seven. Hanley Ramirez is hitting very well as is Mike Stanton. Even Bonifacio has a nice hit streak going.
Negatives: The lone loss of the week was a tough one. The two runs allowed scored on a dropped fly ball. In the ninth inning Hanley was thrown out at second, killing a potential rally.
Line of the Week: A three-run homer kind of ruined the line, but Javy Vazquez gets the nod because who thoguht he could have a 10 strikeout, no walks game?

Highlight of the Week: Mr. #MONSTERDONG had quite an afternoon in Chicago on Saturday. Two dongs. Four RBIs.
Looking Ahead: The Marlins soft patch in the schedule continues with a makeup game against the Mets in New York tomorrow. Then they come home for three against the Padres then the Mets.
