Overview: The Marlins swept the hapless souls that are the Chicago Cubs, then dropped two in Washington. Sunday's game has been postponed due to weather.
Positives: I know it was against the Cubs, but the team played some all around good ball to sweep that series. Bonifacio somehow is still hitting and stealing bases. And although they didn't get wins, both Zambrano and Anibal pitched pretty good ballgames this weekend.
Negatives: Still no #MONSTERDONG sightings :-( The bats went absolutely silent this weekend, save for a LoMo homer. And the team fell back under .500. But hey, at least we aren't the Red Sox. [laughing hysterically under my breath]
Line of the Week: Rarely do we ever honor a starting pitcher who lost, but the wll is pretty dry this week, and Anibal Sanchez pitched great yesterday.

Highlight of the Week: Hanley's huge three run bomb to win Tuesday's game. With bonus super-cool handshakes bro!
Looking Ahead: Day off tomorrow, then three in New York against the Mets before a weekend series back home versus the Diamondbacks.
