Slumbering Sluggers?

If you have ever needed to know what anemic offense looks like, you might want to ask Marlins sluggers Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton. The fearsome twosome went just 1 for 15 in Philadelphia.

Certainly for much of the season, especially in Marcell’s case, the production has been there. It was even noted in our preview for that series that Stanton is terrible at Citizens Bank. So don’t want to go too knee jerk, what have you done for me lately here.

However, the excuses and pardons will fall away quickly if production doesn’t pick back up on the home front. Two games does not make much of a sample size. But, my eyes will be wide open to see if the Marlins two most prolific power hitters snap out of it or continue sliding into a slump.
