This was a very slow week for us on Marlin Maniac. Everyone’s finals either took place this past week or next week. As a result of this, I was not able to put in as many posts as I had wished to. The Miami Marlins losing six of their past seven games did not help much either. T
I will finish up my last final later on today, so hopefully with finals being over, the Marlins can kick back into gear and start winning some ball games.
This upcoming week, the Marlins will wrap up their four-game series with Arizona Diamondbacks, before heading off on a west coast trip to face the San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres. This next week will also turn into the first week of May. Now is the time for the Marlins to start turning their season around before it becomes too late.
Lets get another exciting week started with a look back at the past week:
- Here is a look at Will’s review of his predictions against the Washington Nationals and his predictions for the New York Mets series. With the Marlins going 0-5 in those two series, it is hard to imagine many of his predictions came true.
- A perfect game is a rare feat in baseball. See what a columnist wrote about Philip Humber‘s perfect game that had Geoff irate, the New Rule.
- Since I was busy with finals this week, I asked Geoff to do game recaps for the games I was unable to watch. Unfortunately, those two games were not too good for the Marlins, as they had their bullpen sent to their rooms and got caught in a Met.
- The Miami Marlins are sinking fast and the culprit is not quick sand, it is their hitting.
- James is not happy with the Marlins recent struggles with their hitting. He is pointing his finger and blame at one person in particular. Find out who that is.
- Jose Reyes returned to New York earlier this week for the first time as a Marlin. Here is the series preview for Reyes’ return.
- Along with the preview, I had a chat with Matt Musico of Fansided’s Rising Apple.
- Next, we had a series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Here is the preview for that series, one that will finish up today.
- Along with this preview, there is also a chat companion with that. This time the chat was with Chris Czar of Venom Strikes.
- Anibal Sanchez has been the Marlins best pitcher this season and he continued that success against the Diamondbacks. Hanley Ramirez provided the walk-off hit for the first Marlins victory in seven games.
- With their ace, Josh Johnson on the mound, the Marlins were in position to at very least secure a tie of the four game series. The Diamondbacks had other plans and singled the Marlins to death.
