Marlins

Filed under: Uncategorized — agreen13 @ 10:12 am

The Florida Marlins are 5-1 and started the season with 4 straight wins, their best in the franchise’s history. And what a week for Emilio Bonifacio, who can run the bases faster than it takes for Jose Reyes to get to first. Ok so that may be a bit of exaggeration but the Marlins newcomer is 14-28 in his first six games with 5 RBI and 4 SB. And Josh Johnson yesterday outdueled Johan Santana yesterday for a complete game to give the Fish a series victory over the Mets, who many picked to win the division. Hanley Ramirez and Jorge Cantu have also gotten their bats hot to start the season with the former hitting his first career grand slam earlier in the week and the latter hitting a couple of homers himself.

Now time for your thoughts- have your views of the Marlins changed after these first six games? Or is this just a fluke? How much do the first 6 games matter to you as a fan?

  1. My views ain’t changed. I picked em to win it all!!!!! So, I called it…now they just gotta keep it up. They got the talent to do it—I think the Mets found that out the hard way the past weekend.

  2. My views haven’t changed either. They have a great team that should compete for a playoff spot. Six games doesn’t mean anything, but the Marlins are doing all the things they do well (hitting homers, winning with starting pitching, stealing bases). Only the fielding, contact hitting (13 k’s against Santana) and the bullpen could derail a potential trip to the playoffs.
