Marlins Way: To Trade Or Not To Trade

As the non waiver trade deadline approaches this week, the Miami Marlins are probably in the worst position possible – undecided as to whether they are sellers or buyers.  This weekend’s 3 game sweep of the Astros, the worst team in baseball, may have inspired false hope that the Fish can get back into the Wild Card race.  On the other hand, the team has won seven of their last eight which could point to their finally coming together and being on the verge of an extended winning stretch.  This week’s series against the first place Washington Nationals now seems pivotal and decisions on trades will need to be made based on as little as the result of just one game this series.

The Miami Marlins have won four games in a row, six of their last seven, and have climbed back into range of a .500 record. This, naturally, has gained them a small amount of games in the Wild Card and NL East division races. Having made that ground, Miami now has a chance to actually close in on a competitor in the NL East, as they have the Washington Nationals in town for a three-game set at Marlins Park. With another impressive sweep, Miami could be as close as within four games of the division lead and could gain a game or two on the Wild Card picture as well.
